Doing It With Locals

Like buses, ideas seem to come in twos. I read last week that Airbnb are looking to expand the services they offer to guests to make trips through them a more curated experience, hosted by local people. And then a reader of the newsletter sent me details of “With Locals”, a service whereby you can enlist the services of a local in a city or area you’re going to be visiting, to enhance the experience. Services provided typically include preparing meals, demonstrating local crafts and skills, or acting as a guide to the area.

I mention it for two reasons:

1. The idea of employing someone through with locals or Airbnb might appeal.

2.  You might want to earn extra money by becoming a paid associate.
