An alternative marketplace for accommodation, CrashMyPad lets people from all over the world rent their vacation properties (or even spare rooms) and earn some extra cash in the process. And people who are looking for a place to stay while they are traveling abroad will not only get that – they will actually be put in a position where they might as well end up making a new friend or two. CrashMyPad clearly emphasizes the human side of rental processes, and that can but make for a more pleasurable experience for just everybody.
Of course, there are people who might be averse to resorting to a service like this one after the recent Airbnb fiasco. Personally, I think such incidents (there were two of them) are the exception which prove a system in which accommodation is offered by locals works more than well. If you agree with that (and I think most sensible people would do) then you can sign up for a Crash My Pad account, and either list what you want to rent or enter a destination that you are eager to visit in order to see what others have already listed.
