Travelers Encouraged To Sleep With Strangers To Build Networks And Save

Wait before you flip and scream crazy, it’s not as bad as you think.  The USA based website is encouraging solo travelers to try sharing a hotel room with a complete stranger to save some money.

Two complete strangers can meet up, share the room and split the cost.

 According to Telegraph, the two globe setters can meet

Set up a profile on the site, indicating their intended destinations and travel dates. They can then wait for a "host" - a fellow solo traveler who has booked a hotel room - to contact them to see if they wish to share a double together.

 The website claims its shared hotel room scheme not only helps single travelers avoid paying over the odds but also provides "the opportunity to meet new friends, build your network, create new opportunities, exchange on the city and learn".
