So how does this differ from 'CouchSurfing' https://www.couchsurfing.org/ or 'Bed 'n' Breakfast' https://www.airbnb.com/?
Those outfits are specifically set up and have networks in place to link people who need casual lodging with those willing to provide it. Does TUG REALLY need to try to fill this niche too?
We have had successful matches of people having an extra night or two in a timeshare as well as in homes. Also, many of us enjoy meeting other Tuggers. This is much more like a Hospitality Club than Airbandb which is profit driven.
If someone wants to offer a bedroom, we always recommend using the PM system. Just another avenue to help fellow Tuggers.
This is something new that we are trying.
Here are the rules:
All offers and requests must be completely free.
All negotiations should take place privately for privacy and security.
Only TUG members may participate.
Do not post your phone number.
The post should include the city, dates/timeframe offered, type of accommodations, contact info.
