Booking Campsites via App: How camparound Brings Camping to the 21st Century

Booking campsites and securing a place to sleep for the night while on the road: cam- paround’s new booking feature makes it possible for travellers to be even more fle- xible when making arrangements for their camping holidays. Not only that, but in addi- tion to campsites, thousands of caravan parks across Europe have recently been ad- ded to the app.

At the “Caravan Salon Düsseldorf”, the world’s largest trade fair for motorhomes and caravans, the startup introduced its booking function, which makes it possible to book campsites directly through the app. This offer, which for the time being only includes German campsites, was made possible with the cooperation of the Federal Associa- tion of the Camping Economy in Germany (BVCD e.V.) and Max Camping. Campsites that are part of the so-called “BVCD Marketplace” can be booked directly via camparound — u- pon doing so, travellers will receive a booking confirmation.

camparound CEO, Nico Ries, is thoroughly convinced by the new feature and is happy to have found a strong partner in the BVCD, which helped create “a fair and industry-friendly solution”. The goal is now to win over more campsite managers, so as to bring camping holi- days one step further into the digital future.

Another new addition to the app: nearly 7,700 caravan parks throughout Europe. Numerous users have requested caravan parks be included in the app, and camparound is listening and taking action. In comparison to campsites, caravan parks are often more worthwhile for mo- torhome and caravan owners, since the prices tend to be lower, and the arrival and depar- ture times more flexible. The data for this comes from a partnership with Mobil Total, the lea- der in caravan parks.

From App to Campsite: camparound – now for Android too

The Cologne-based startup camparound has now also released its free camping app of the same name to Android users.

The company, founded in 2016, released its digital travel guide for the iPhone back in January of this year. Thanks to diverse filters that can be applied to over 2,500 campsites in 14 European countries, travellers can use the app to select the campsite that fits them perfectly. In addition to campsites, the app displays more than 32,000 leisure activities, including hiking and cycling paths as well as more than 25,000 hotspots and sightseeing attractions that can be found near the sites. Making the free app available for Android users was the logical next step for CEO Nico Ries: “Android was never ‘just an option’ for us — it was set in stone from the very beginning.”

Search. Find. Discover.

Since the first release in January, the app has been updated extensively and has been optically improved. The clear layout, the increased search speed and the user-friendly experience have all been brought over to the Android version. Since the start, the app has added another 1,500 campsites, which are all researched and described by camparound’s own editorial staff. The editors also write up exclusive tips for leisure activities at the hottest campsites, which are designed to inspire travellers. Photographers make sure that campers can take a good look at the campsites before they get there; professional photos and 360° images are available for many of the sites.

camparound lives digitally

camparound sees the release of the free Android version of their app as another milestone in the digitisation of camping holidays. “We’re campers at heart, but we’re also digital at heart. That’s what makes us so unique,” says Ries. In addition to classic support via email and phone, the company can also be reached via Facebook Messenger.

Digitising the camping world – cooperatively!  

In collaboration with the Federal Association of the Camping Economy in Germany (BVCD e.V.) and Max Camping, camparound is also currently working on a solution for booking campsites. Online booking has been established for hotels and holiday apartments for a while now, and in that regard, the camping sector needs to catch up. That’s precisely the issue the Cologners want to tackle, and they hope to foster this with the help of cooperative teamwork between their company and campsite operators. With all the effort being put into digitising, one thing is already clear: building bridges is key. “If you want to go quickly, you go alone. But if you want to go far, you go with others,” Ries says.

About us

Company details

camparound is a team of 20 passionate campers and nature enthusiasts. We don’t need much on holiday: water at our feet, forests for hiking, mountains for skiing or climbing — occasionally a city for sightseeing, partying, or an arts & culture programme. We don't need to lounge by the pool day after day, eating the same continental breakfast buffet and being entertained by holiday reps. That’s why we’ve decided to turn camping into a once-in-a-lifetime experience and develop a product that offers our users exactly what we felt the market was missing. We don’t want to spend hour after hour flipping through a mountain of travel guides, campsite brochures and flyers… Holidays should be easy, straightforward, and you should be able to make plans on the fly. That way, you can dedicate more time to the important things in life.

In our app, we focus on individuality, because everyone has their own vision for the perfect holiday. Starting with the right campsite or caravan site — one which satisfies your personal requirements — a variety of options for leisure activities will help make your holiday a success. That’s why camparound offers comprehensive information about every campsite as well as suggestions for things to see and do in the surrounding area. This way, there are no unpleasant surprises upon arrival, and your holiday is guaranteed to be anything but boring. When we go camping, we don’t want to just stay overnight at some campsite — we want to find one that fits us and our expectations, so that our camping holiday will be an unforgettable experience.
