San Francisco: Vacation rental aggregator VacationRenter has announced a partnership with peer-to-peer RV rental platform Outdoorsy in order to make personalised, easy-to-book vacations more accessible than ever.
With 73 per cent of Americans saying they prefer a road trip over flying, the partnership is set to help travellers make that preference a reality.
Outdoorsy’s full inventory of RVs, trailers, camper vans and more will now be available to book through VacationRenter across more than 4,800 cities in 11 countries.
Travellers will have more individual, family and pet-friendly rental options than ever before so they can find the accommodations they want. Outdoorsy’s peer-to-peer model aims to offer travellers better access to more trustworthy RV rentals through those who share the same passion for being on the go.
Outdoorsy chief revenue officer Colin Gardiner said: “We’re on a mission to make memorable outdoor experiences accessible to everyone. Partnering with VacationRenter is an optimal way for us to make our 40,000+ global RV rental options accessible to as many vacationers as possible.
“We’re thrilled to combine forces to show even more travellers in the vacation rental space the ease in which you can personalise your trip, itinerary and price point when booking an Outdoorsy RV trip,” he added.
VacationRenter says it has already helped more than 20 million travellers find their ideal rentals through the use of automation and machine learning. The partnership with Outdoorsy allows it to expand its inventory to ensure travellers can plan the perfect vacation whether they want to stay put or hit the open road.
VacationRenter chief operating officer Marco del Rosario said: “We’re constantly looking for ways to add unique value to the millions of travellers who use VacationRenter every month. We’re excited to partner with Outdoorsy to provide our travellers with a new type of accommodation experience that they can take on the go.”
