Americans prefer road trips than flying

Vacation rental listings aggregator VacationRenter and Outdoorsy have announced a partnership to make personalised, easy-to-book vacations are more accessible than ever. With 73% of Americans saying they prefer a road trip over flying, this partnership is helping travellers make that preference a reality.

Outdoorsy’s full inventory of RVs, trailers, campervans and more will now be available to book through VacationRenter across more than 4,800 cities in 11 countries. Travellers will have more individual, family, and pet-friendly rental options than ever before so they can truly find the accommodations they want. Outdoorsy’s peer-to-peer model offers travellers better access to more trustworthy RV rentals through those who share the same passion for being on the go.

“We’re on a mission to make memorable outdoor experiences accessible to everyone,” said Colin Gardiner, chief revenue officer for Outdoorsy. “Partnering with VacationRenter is an optimal way for us to make our 40,000+ global RV rental options accessible to as many vacationers as possible. We’re thrilled to combine forces to show even more travellers in the vacation rental space the ease in which you can personalize your trip, itinerary and price point when booking an Outdoorsy RV trip.”

VacationRenter has already helped more than 20 million travellers find their perfect rentals through the use of automation and machine learning. The partnership with Outdoorsy allows it to expand its inventory to ensure travellers can plan the perfect vacation whether they want to stay put or hit the open road.

“We’re constantly looking for ways to add unique value to the millions of travellers who use VacationRenter every month,” said Marco del Rosario, chief operating officer of VacationRenter. “We’re excited to partner with Outdoorsy to provide our travellers with a new type of accommodation experience that they can take on the go.”
