Comfort and Camplify bring you an exclusive and lucrative opportunity

With another 10,000 flights cancelled this weekend just gone, and 100’s cancelled each day for the past 6 weeks, disruption and delays are set to continue for the airlines for months to come.

Trust in international travel is wavering, but demand for a summer getaway is higher than ever, following two years of locked down summers.

This has left thousands of families across the UK looking for reliable and affordable holiday options, and Comfort’s most recent partner, Camplify, has seen a 1273% rise in bookings in the last quarter alone, as UK holiday makers’ appetite for motorhome and campervan holidays continues to boom in the wake of complicated overseas travel.

So, as a motorhome owner, you’re in a great position to both help satisfy the demand of hundreds of thousands of holiday makers across the UK and subsidise your own income.

An exclusive opportunity

Any Comfort customer that sign up and share their van with Camplify by the 18th of August will receive a full rebate on their booking commission for the first year. 

It is essential that all owners and hirers using peer to peer rental platforms are comprehensively safeguarded.  Our award-winning insurance and Discover hire policy, underwritten by Aviva, will be offered to all owners that list their van on Camplify, setting an industry standard benchmark for safe and secure vehicle sharing.

Owners that wish to share their van on Camplify not only have the option to use Comfort’s comprehensive drive and hire policy, but also the potential to earn an additional (and commission free) income of up to £10,000 a year.

Cost of Living

We’re all feeling the pinch at the moment. A recent survey by The Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed that 66 percent of adults in Britain had experienced an increase in the cost of living since January, with higher energy bills cited as a cause by four in five.

With the typical income for a week’s rental during peak season for a 4-berth coach built or campervan on Camplify standing as high as £900 – £1200, those lucky enough to own a van have a great opportunity to subsidise their own income and offset the rising bills at home. By sharing their van for just two weeks of the month during June, July and August, owners are in great stead to cover their home energy bill payments for 2023!

Sam Bradley, Chislehurst based owner stated ”We started sharing our first motorhome with Camplify in 2020, and as a result of our success acquired and listed our second at the beginning of 2021. Since then, we have received close to £19,000 in bookings, and anticipate another busy summer ahead. Having two vans on the platform has meant we’re busy dealing with bookings, but the additional income has meant that my wife and I have been able to work more flexibly and spend more time with our young children.”

Try before you buy (or wait)

A record breaking 101,606 visitors attended the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham in February this year, which reflects the height of demand for all things motorhome and campervan in the UK.

Camplify has seen a huge influx of bookings from hirers that want to ‘Try Before They Buy.’ Danny Bennett, Cambridgeshire based owner said ‘’Over the past two years, around 20% of our bookings have come from hirers looking to try before they buy. Motorhomes are a big expense, so hirers want to experience driving, living in and traveling in a motorhome before they commit to buying one”.

The industry is suffering its biggest backlog to date. The perfect storm of under ordering of chassis by manufacturers in 2019 for fear of Brexit tariff hikes, combined with an enormous spike in demand as a result of the pandemic, has left many would be owners facing a 9-12 month wait for a new van.

So this year, Camplify anticipates similar numbers looking to hire a van to satisfy their wanderlust, while they wait for their own to arrive!
