Travel Innovation - International Barter Week
Initiated in 2018, International Barter Week has brought bartering in hospitality to a common public platform. 600 different B&B’s offer free stays in exchange for their guests’ skills. The business listed the skills they need and were accepting the applications. There were opportunities for carpenters, decorators, nutritionists, IT specialists, but also those who would be able to give a collection of children’s books, or a working computers. The hosts who offered rooms come from allover the world - from Italy, UK, through Bulgaria and going as far as Mongolia! The week kicks off on 18th November. Read more about it in The Guardian.
