Let’s shape the future of travel

Okay, this was one we really couldn’t ignore: the Benelux was buzzing about the news that Uber would become a 100% legal ride sharing service in Brussels. By far the most popular share with more than 100 mentions and counting.

Then again, if you had checked the live trending stories being shared on our homepage, you would have known already. ;-)

Following up on that news, there was an opinion piece being shared that had appeared on the World Economic Forum site: “Europe needs innovation, rather than regulation”. While the headline could not have been more cliché, the piece does offer a bigger picture, which makes it an interesting read.
