The law of math is pretty simple: if you split the cost of a room with someone, then you save money. If that person is a family member or friend, it makes for a fun time! But what if that person is a stranger? USA Today has an article about a new service offering exactly that: Easynest. Basically, you make a profile, give them your travel plans, and they match you up with someone to share your room with.
I guess for some super budget travelers or the very adventurous this would be fun, but it sounds terrifying to me. At this point in my life, I don’t even really like to share a room with someone that’s not a family member! Too many years of having my own space, I guess.
Readers, what do you think? Would you ever take advantage of a service like this? What about in your (crazy?) past?
