Share your space with those you trust.
Two Degrees lets people do what they have always done – share their spaces within their trusted personal network – by creating a platform to enable the discovery and coordination of new shared experiences and use of available accommodations with people you know, and with people that they know and trust directly (friends of friends).
Dive deep into your connections.
We make it easy to:
- Deepen your relationships through shared experiences
- Offer up a place to stay and share your stuff
- Keep everything organized with schedules and calendars
- Explore opportunities for new adventures
It’s all about relationships, reputation, and trust.
With Two Degrees, you can start connecting with first degree and second degree connections. First degree connections, such as friends and relatives, are people you already have a direct and close relationship with, and who you trust to share your home. The Two Degrees community also brings in second degree connections, which are trusted connections of your first degree connections, or simply friends of friends. The experiences available on Two Degrees allows for sharing and discoverability based on trust, whether it’s direct or trust by association when friends vouch for those in their network. And just like in the real world, the property owner (Host) has complete and total control over the acceptance of a request to visit.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” – Mark Twain
We’ve all hosted a friend of a friend or stayed with a family member. Two Degrees is a better way to do what you already do and expand your horizons. Meet new people within your network and get the chance to grow it.
Enjoy a personal experience. Have friends transform your trip from a good one to a great one! You’ll stay with people who know the area and who will help you discover hidden local gems. No more relying on yelp reviews from strangers to find cool stuff to do.
Share your place without worry or hassle. Trust your friends to use your stuff when you’re not around, or adventure and have fun together. It’s your choice.
Travel is dynamic.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced virtual-only interactions, but with travel opening up again, everyone is anxious to see friends and family. Now, more than ever, people are looking to share adventures face-to-face. What better way than to also share your place!
Because it utilizes family and friend connections rather than total strangers, Two Degrees allows you to enjoy and offer longer stays than traditional hospitality apps. Open your home to someone needing a break from their normal environment, book an extended stay at your uncle’s friend’s cabin, or work remotely in a city you’ve always wanted to visit.
We believe in shared adventures.
Connect—and reconnect—with people you care about and build stronger relationships. We are wired to be in a community, and we genuinely want to share what we have to offer with others. Our belief is that our existing network of friends and family is the best way to meet new people and create meaningful new connections.
Travel sustainably & responsibly.
Not everyone has the financial ability to travel, either as a hobby or for important life events. Two Degrees opens up opportunities to affordably travel for those who may not otherwise be able to. Not only that, we help to utilize unused assets in homes and communities in which we already live, reducing the need to build new accommodations or buy new recreational items. When we invest in each other, our travel dollars stay in our neighborhoods rather than large hospitality organizations.
Let your friends and loved ones know your invitation to stay over is genuine and invite them into your network. Confirm arrivals, durations of stay, and set expectations for their visit all up front. No more blurred lines and unknown expectations. Communicate clearly and build trust to make your visits exceptional.
