Last update 7 hours ago.
More than 1800 campgrounds in the US and Canada are now available to be booked directly on the Booking.com platform, which is great news for travelers looking for something different this summer. As the cost of flight tickets abroad continues to rise, hotel stays and everything else in between, camping trips are likely to be a hit with travelers looking for a more cost effective staycation this summer, and booking a stay at a campsite just got easier.
With so many different locations and type of camping ground to choose from, the recent integration between Campspot and Booking.com will bring joy to millions of travelers this summer and beyond. This is everything travelers need to know about the integration between the two travel platforms, and why camping could be the new travel trend this summer.
Camping Just Got Easier – Information For Travelers
Travelers in North America might want to consider their own backyard as a good place to start when looking for a vacation spot. Some of the most beautiful national parks in the world can be found in the US and Canada, as well as world-class beach destinations, and travelers would be hard pressed to beat in other countries.
Millions agree that camping is the best way to experience all that the continent has to offer, despite the fact that hotels have their comforts and apartments. 10 million first time campers were counted amongst the 48.2 million households who camped at least once in 2020. Many of these camping bookings were made through Campspot, the leading provider of campground reservation software – and now Campspot camp sites are set to be available for booking on Booking.com
Booking.com, one of the world’s most popular booking platforms, is likely to bring a lot of exposure to the world of camping, with Campspot’s 1,800 campgrounds set to become available through the market leading booking platform. By showing campsites along with traditional hotels, it could go some way towards swaying those who hadn’t previously considered taking a camping vacation to give it a go – bringing a whole new audience to camping along with traditional enthusiasts.
The total revenue of parks on Campspot grew by 467% when compared to the first quarter of 2022 to the first quarter of 2021, an encouraging stat given that countries began to ease their policies. With the cost of traveling abroad reaching new highs, the popularity of camping is set to rise even further.
The integration of Booking.com will help promote camping to millions more potential customers, but Campspot has no plans of stopping there. The campground reservation software company, created by campground owners for campground owners, has their eyes set on partnering with other giants of the accommodation industry such asAirbnb and Vrbo over the next few months, to bring the potential exposure of camping trips to all new highs.
The CEO of Campspot said:
I know first-hand how valuable these marketplaces can be to attracting new guests, and sites like Booking.com and Vrbo are great ways to reach that demographic.
It’s never been easier to find a camping trip, with a wide range of different accommodations to choose from.
