El Monte RV, one of the nation’s leading motorhome rental companies, has unveiled the industry’s first-ever Web site with real-time RV rentals and campground reservations. The booking services offered via www.elmonterv.com makes it easy for campers and RVers to rent a motorhome and search for places to camp based on individual preferences, interests and even by the type of atmosphere, according to a news release.
“It’s the industry’s first complete concierge service for camping,” said Joe Laing, director of marketing for the Los Angeles-based RV rental firm. “Based on an individual’s personal tastes, preferences and choices, this site makes it easy to book your travel accommodations as well as find the camping experience that best matches your needs and desires.”
Among many options, travelers can now search for places that will take pets or have amenities such as wireless Internet access or laundry facilities. With more than 100 amenities and activities for campers to choose from, the site provides information for very specific criteria and activities, including finding campgrounds that offer miniature golf, skeet shooting or even nude recreation. On the flip side, information about campgrounds with chapel services and educational activities also is available. El Monte RV partnered with Camping.com on the enhanced online booking services and capabilities.
“People don’t have a ton of time to plan a vacation, and they want to target those places that will cater to their particular interests and needs,” said Laing. “This tool makes it easy to not only find the right location, but also saves time by automatically checking availability and booking reservations.”
El Monte RV’s new site also provides other resources, including automatic cost quotes, fuel cost and mileage calculators and live help customer support. Other new features include an events calendar with recommendations from travelers on events happening throughout the country.
