Abstract: This paper analyses the implications of sharing on tourists and tourism focusing on the transportation sector. The shifts from ownership to access, from products to services have induced dramatic changes triggered by the emergence of innovative marketplaces. The services offered by Knowledge Innovative Service Suppliers, start-ups at the origin of innovative marketplaces run through platforms allow the tourists to find solutions to run themselves their activities, bypassing the traditional tourism industry. The paper builds a taxonomy to apprehend the diversity attached to this growing platform economy, and uses this analytical framework to depict significant cases drawn from ridesharing or carsharing.
