Booking campsites and securing a place to sleep for the night while on the road: cam- parounds 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 worlds 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.
