RoverPass, an online travel agency and reservation management website for RV parks and campgrounds, has launched a simple-to-use tool to catch missed dollars from empty park sites and is poised to change how camping consumers book campgrounds forever, according to an announcement from the company, based in Austin, Texas.
Online booking isn’t a new idea but the key ingredient RoverPass provides is simplicity. Right now there’s not a great solution in the industry that’s affordable and quickly allows parks to tap into the massive supply of campers the internet provides, claims RoverPass.
“The RoverPass mission is to make the entire booking process, for campgrounds, RV parks, and campers, as easy as possible,” said RoverPass CEO and Founder Ravi Parikh. “Because it’s made simple, it allows parks to focus on the guest experience and campers to focus on making lasting memories. We want to get technology out of the way as much as possible.”
The free setup takes about 15 minutes and parks only pay when an actual reservation is made. Parks can cancel anytime with no strings attached, making it easy to dive into the world of online booking.
When campgrounds and RV parks begin working with RoverPass, they’ll be able to immediately add their park sites to the website — all of them or only select ones the park wants to dedicate to RoverPass campers. After setting up the inventory, parks will be notified of reservations from the communication method they prefer, either by phone, text message or email.
RoverPass uses a pay-per-performance payment process — parks pay RoverPass 10% of the booking transaction only when a reservation is made through RoverPass.com and its smartphone apps. Right now, for the first 20 parks that sign up for the service, RoverPass is waiving the transaction fee on the first 10 customers. To sign up, parks should go to roverpass.com/signup.
RoverPass is a startup that has already raised half-a-million dollars in its first two months of operation and is working with several key partners in the travel industry including CampsitePhotos.com, TripAdvisor, Booking.com and is part of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) Supplier Council. Its mission is to create lasting camping memories through a seamless booking experience. Learn more by going to RoverPass.com, liking on Facebook and following on Twitter.
