Nearly 9 out of 10 travellers have rented or stayed in a stranger's property for a trip, with concerns over identity of owners cited as significant factor. Over 2,000 consumers in the US and UK were interviewed for the report from HooYu, with only 12% of Brits and 15% of Americans saying they have used an alternative accommodation option for their travels. The figures are lower, 6% and 10% for the UK and US respectively, for those specifically renting a room for a trip in somebody's home. Some 29% of Brits would never rent someone else's property for a trip with assurance over the owner's identity (the figure is 24% for Americans). Find out more.
