Outdoorsy expands to Canada

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Outdoorsy, the largest and most-trusted RV rental marketplace, announces its launch to all Canadians today. Both RV owners and renters alike can now travel across Canada or the U.S. in motorhomes, campervans, travel trailers and adventure vehicles facilitated through the Outdoorsy platform.

Outdoorsy is widely recognized as the market leader in the sharing economy and known for its customer service, highest 5-star ratings and reviews, comprehensive insurance coverage, bank-level secure online payments and optional roadside assistance and GPS tracking.

The company is bringing that same commitment to Canada by opening offices and employing Canadians in customer service, marketing and bilingual sales positions.

“I’m a proud Canadian, born and bred. The company was started in my home in Vancouver, Canada, but scaled in the United States. We’re pumped to finally launch it with Aviva, the best insurance partner bringing insurance solutions to Canadians from coast to coast,” says Jen Young, Outdoorsy chief marketing officer. “This is an incredibly special homecoming for me.”

Aviva Canada has underwritten a $2 million third party liability insurance program in partnership with Outdoorsy and backed the company’s launch in Canada.

The partnership between Aviva and Outdoorsy introduces an insurance solution representing the height of innovation in the sharing economy. RV owners can now turn their parked RV into profit centers by earning extra income renting to other campers through Outdoorsy with insurance coverage included at no extra charge.

“We’re excited to team up with Outdoorsy because they are the most reputable and sustainable partner in this business, winning the hearts and minds of RV enthusiasts,” says Daniel Ignoto, Aviva Canada vice president of lifestyle personal insurance. “We’re both committed to building products that have long-term value for our customers and support the way they’d like to travel.”

“Outdoorsy’s Canadian RV insurance solution and dedicated Canadian support team provides the same quality experience that we are known for in the United States,” says Jeff Cavins, Outdoorsy CEO.

The Outdoorsy platform offers RV renters the opportunity to:

  • Easily search and book a broad variety of RVs personally cared for by their owners that suit a variety of tastes and needs
  • Communicate directly with owners who want to share their knowledge and often assist with advice and road trip itineraries
  • Save money and enjoy more frequent, unique vacations as RVing is a cost-effective way to travel
  • Travel fully insured and with peace of mind under an automatic insurance coverage

RV owners, on the other hand, can:

  • Earn up to $46,000 per year renting their RV(s)
  • List their RV for free through a simple step-by-step process
  • Handpick pre-qualified renters through profiles, ratings and reviews and remain in complete control of who rents
  • Set rates and availability and accept bookings they are comfortable with
  • Receive secure payments made directly into their bank account
