You filter by location, availability, nearness to the city centre, or beach or malls, availability of wifi, and a lot of factors around amenities. You contact your host and get ready to meet. But do try to sort out amenity bills like lights and internet. Do find out from your host if you are the one to pay or it is included in your fee so you can be prepared. It is always advisable to get a local sim and do load with data and call credit to get around.

GETTING AROUND

UBER
This is a car service that allows you to get a comfortable car ride when you are in cities you are not familiar with. I do use uber for comparison when I travel because the local cab fare might be cheaper so knowing the uber fare helps you with your bargaining skills. In all, it has been a good service with the features of reporting your driver and asking for refunds when you feel you have been overcharged.

App is available in the iOS store and Android play store for download.

MYTAXI

This is quite popular in Europe, it works in a similar way with Uber. The major difference is the use of a licensed taxi with my taxi while Uber works majorly with private car owners. It is available in 5o cities across the European continent and it is expanding. This app allows you to review drivers, share journey details, request drivers and leave tips for drivers. Prices are almost similar to that of Uber but destination makes prices to vary.

TURO

Have you ever had that feeling of riding or driving a local means of transportation when you travel? There are different forms of transportation in different countries. From the Keke Marwa which is common in the Asia Pacific continent to hatchbacks and supercars in some other location.
Turo is a local rental app that allows locals to rent out their cars to the tourist who have passed the clearance process to make use of their car.
You can book a car of your choice from a local by filling in your destination, hours to use the car, travel dates and do choose from the locally-owned listed cars. You will collect the keys of the car from the owner and you will drop off after usage.

This is a good way to be part of a community when travelling.
