Camplify UK Launch Announcement

By William Coleman

Have you ever wanted to go camping but do not own a tent? A weekend break at a caravan site but can't get access to an affordable caravan? Well that's about to change.

Camplify are being dubbed as the Airbnb of the camping world and Australia's largest peer-to-peer caravan hire and leisure vehicle sharing community, is about to launch here in the UK in September.

Camplify was founded in 2014 by Justin Hales and was fully launched across Australia in 2015. Having only been operating for 2 years Camplify is set to have the largest leisure vehicle fleet in Australia by 2017. "With so many people embracing Camplify's RV sharing community in Australia, this move seemed a natural fit. We're excited to be expanding into the UK marketplace, with European destinations also looking probable later on." says Jason during the press release,

The expansion into the UK will give users access to list their rental caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents, static caravans and holiday lodges for hire. There will also be a platform for communication between the owners of the listings and the UK manager for Camplifym Chris Laxen. Laxen, who joined Camplify from the UK's largest holiday park network, says; "The response from other industry leaders has been really positive, so watch this space. I am very excited to see where we can take Camplify in the next six months and beyond.". Chris will be able to answer a wide range of questions from insurance to pricing and much more.

The unique leisure vehicle sharing platform is a really exciting prospect for anyone who is planning a getaway. Millions of people around the world use Airbnb to get hotel accommodation. Applying that method to the camping and leisure industry will increase the reach and accessibility for staycations across the UK. The average person would just google where to stay and be faced with thousands of pages to go through, many of which have been paid to be at the top of the list and are more often than not, not relevant. With Camplify it's a direct link to exactly what you need, cutting out all the rigmarole of searching tons of sites.

With nothing like this in the UK, considering the ever growing size of the caravan and motorhome industry, it seems like the perfect time for such a website. For me it seems like a great idea. It is something I would use to get away for a weekend. What do you guys think about this?
