The integration will allow RV parks and campgrounds using RoverPass to automatically list their sites on Expedia for maximum visibility to campers, and thereby increasing the number of additional bookings, states the release. Expedia services over 18 million users in the U.S. monthly, and reports 24 million active Expedia Rewards members in over 32 different countries.
“Expedia’s potential reach is massive and its reputation has allowed them to achieve a top spot in the world of online travel,” notes the release. “Travelers consistently report that Expedia sites and partners are among their top five considerations when looking for new destinations.”
All RV parks and campgrounds using RoverPass software will have access to the Expedia integration through the Channel Manager which will sync bookings across all connected directories. RoverPass currently integrates with top travel sites such as Airbnb, Booking.com and now Expedia.
“At our core, RoverPass’ mission is to make booking a reservation for outdoor travel as easy as possible,” said RoverPass CEO Ravi Parikh. “Integrating with Expedia is a huge stepping stone for us and helps to keep both parties — campground owners and the campers themselves — involved and excited for future camping seasons.”
More integrations and new distribution partners are in the works for RoverPass, such as Vrbo.
“The goal is to create the largest single network of bookable RV park and campground sites to make booking a campground far more accessible,” stated the release. “This will help campers locate their ideal next travel destination without downloading a dozen apps or visiting tons of websites. In addition, owners of RV parks and campgrounds can look forward to increased visibility for their sites and overall happier campers.”
