Save money. This is one of the great financial goals of Spanish families. The collaborative economy has created an infinity of new portals that, thanks to the collaboration of the users, allow to obtain new services at a good price, thanks to the fact that the expenses of the same need are shared. From Minitroll, we want to introduce you to this concept so that, in addition to benefiting from the leading savings app in Spain, you can better understand how these types of collaborative websites work and, above all, how we can save money and improve the economy of our accounts personal
Traveling is a necessity or a matter of leisure, depending on the situation. In any case, traveling entails a series of expenses. If we do it by car, we have to spend gas. But portals such as Gogo Car have allowed users to share the expenses derived from gasoline. If I plan to make a trip in my vehicle from Madrid to Zaragoza, I can share the rest of the empty seats of my car, distributing gasoline expenses among all the occupants. Everyone earns financially and, above all, collaborates with the environment, by reducing CO2 emissions to a single vehicle.
another collaborative portal with which to save
In the case of Wallapop, a user may need a tie. To find one, you should either look for a specialized store, or go to a mall. What if your neighbor is selling a tie in perfect condition?
The consequence of this process is that the buyer accesses a product that he is looking for without having to make a large displacement, and without wasting time when looking for a specialized establishment. On the other hand, it does not pay taxes. The seller, meanwhile, does not have to justify that income, so all are benefits.
Tourism, a very affected sector
Two good examples in the tourism sector are Wimdu or Airbnb. These models, together with Gogo Car, have generated significant savings for users, since two of the most common expenses on a trip (travel and accommodation) are significantly reduced.
With Wimdu and Airbnb it is possible to offer a private home as accommodation. Prices are cheaper than those offered by regular accommodation, such as hotels or rural houses. In addition, the homeowner gets extra income, so that his personal accounts are improved, thanks to the fact that he obtains economic performance from an asset. You can also refine the rental of your home based on your personal needs. If a few months, the personal accounts of the owner are perfectly, you do not have to rent that house. However, you can offer it again when you need it, and earn money with it, with a couple of clicks in front of the computer.
Collaborative consumption goes to more
Europ Assistance has conducted a study on trends in the tourism sector for next summer. According to the data of the report, collected by Europa Press, car and house sharing is a trend that will grow, especially among the youth population. The collaborative consumer profile in the field of tourism has, in 29% of cases, between 18 and 24 years, and in 24% of cases between 25 and 34 years. The crisis is another factor that affects a greater search for these collaborative services since, according to the data of the mentioned report, 24% of the collaborative clients do not work.
A hotel for hours?
Even the Public Administrations reward innovative business ideas based on the collaborative concept. This is the case of Lodumi, a web application to share house for hours, and that has been selected within the Minerva program, which tries to accelerate technological projects with possibilities of success, and in which both Vodafone and the Junta de Andalucía participate.
Lodumi proposes to enjoy the comforts of our house even if we are not close to it. Allows rental of housing for hours, thanks to geolocation through smartphones or mobile devices. The hosts can offer food in their home, a bathroom to use, use the lounge as an office or the possibility of taking a nap. Only for the desired time and agreeing on a price. Can a hotel with this type of services compete today?
Decide whether or not to move on to the collaborative trend, remember that using the Minitroll application you can see in real time and from any place how your finances are improving and, if you combine the extras of the app with collaborative techniques, you will see how each euro of your payroll It stretches more.
