Travel that is convenient, affordable, fun and also safe? Check, check, check and absolutely! RVs are quickly becoming the preferred way to go on vacation, especially with summer nearing its end and families looking to get away and planning how to spend the long Labor Day weekend.
Heading off on holiday can be stressful in the best of times, so a pandemic only compounds potential problems. However, a growing number of Americans are realizing they don’t have to forego their annual family vacation or a great Labor Day getaway during these challenging months. Instead, they’re hopping into recreational vehicles and safely hitting the road to enjoy some much-deserved time off — on wheels!
While renting an RV (versus buying) may not have even crossed your mind, maybe it’s time thanks to the convenience of the latest peer-to-peer RV rental platforms. You wouldn’t buy a home or car just for visiting new destinations every so often, so why purchase an RV for limited-time lodging and transportation when companies like RVshare are making renting one so much simpler using a rental model similar to Airbnb — but for RVs!
How RVshare works: the company, which is the very first and largest peer-to-peer rental marketplace, conveniently connects RV owners and renters. Renters just need to enter a pickup location or delivery address on the RVshare website, specify dates and how many people the vehicle should sleep and the rest is a worry-free rental experience.
RVshare boasts 100,000 listings across the country, which means there’s a wide range of unique vehicles to choose from, whether you’re looking for an affordable and cool little travel trailer for a quick camping weekend away or you’re more in the market for a luxurious fully-equipped motorhome to see the country in real style.
Ahead are just a few more reasons why 60,000-plus happy customers have given RVshare five-star reviews.
RVs Fit Many COVID-Era Needs
The coronavirus pandemic has forced everyone to think outside the box when it comes to things we all used to take for granted, and RVs are increasingly becoming a useful tool for that. For example, RVshare is helping to connect RV owners with critical personnel during these times of crisis. That same idea can work for families who want to come together but need a safe way to quarantine and not risk each other’s health since RVs can be temporary lodging for loved ones during short or long visits. They’re also great for hosting everything from tailgates and barbecues by the beach to other fun outdoor Labor Day activities both near and far from home with your safe social-distancing circle.
Taking Care During the COVID Crisis
Unlike with bus, train or airplane trips, renting an RV allows you to be in complete control of your environment. You get to decide how and how often it’s sanitized, and you make the final decision on exactly who is allowed in this self-contained space.
Surprisingly Few Restrictions and Pets Allowed!
It’s a big misconception that there are a lot of roadblocks when renting and operating an RV. With RVshare, for example, vehicles are instantly bookable on their safe and secure booking and payment platform to anyone at least 25 years old with a valid driver’s license. And RVshare is in all 50 states so a great trip is often quite literally right around the corner. Even better, RVshare has plenty of pet-friendly options, so your pre-approved travel companions can now include your furry best friends!
Affordable, Flexible & Safe
According to RVshare, the average cost to rent an RV on the site is around $150 per night. Since many of the vehicles — from pop-ups and camper vans to travel trailers and motorhomes — can sleep multiple people, that’s a steal for couple adventurers or families of any size who want to get out and go, especially this Labor Day. Last-minute rentals and even cancellations during the uncertainties of COVID-19 are no problem either since available vehicles can be searched according to cancellation policies.
RVshare also offers plenty of helpful resources online for travelers to keep at their fingertips, including information on which State and National Parks are open (a LOT). In addition, there are tips on how to stay safe while RVing and hiking, RV cleaning guides, and even links to several virtual park tours to help you pick your perfect adventure!
Real Financial Peace of Mind
RVshare guarantees a worry-free rental process, which includes payment and fraud protection, and the company will refund your money in the unlikely chance anything does go wrong with a transaction. Before, during and after your trip, a dedicated support team is also available through phone, email and 24/7 chat to help with any problems that could come up.
Insurance can be complicated and confusing when renting but not with RVshare Rental Insurance. Their policies provide collision and comprehensive coverage to both domestic and international renters. Plus, every booking comes with 24/7 emergency roadside assistance for unexpected trouble like a flat tire.
