Hipcamp, a provider of outdoor stays, has announced the acquisition of London-based Tripadee Ltd., and the complete integration of its popular Cool Camping brand into the Hipcamp platform.

According to a press release, travelers from all over the world can now reserve hundreds of thousands of camping, glamping, and RV accommodations across the UK and France, as well as Canada, Australia, and the United States, through the Hipcamp website and the company’s Android and iOS apps.

The acquisition comes as both companies see record growth. Hipcamp is backed by Jay-Z and has experienced an increase of 460% in bookings since 2019, while the number of stays booked through Cool Camping increased 340% during the same time.

Hipcamp is working to offer the most convenient way to locate and book outdoor accommodations and adventures, all on one platform.

Cool Camping has curated a stunning selection of sites throughout the UK and France. Together, the two companies will make it easier for foreign travelers to book outdoor trips both at home or abroad and for the UK hosts to join Hipcamp’s worldwide community of outdoor lovers.

“It’s a hugely exciting moment as we join forces with Hipcamp – our spiritual cousins internationally,” said Cool Camping Founder Jonathan Knight. “We’re proud of the trust that Cool Camping has built up with our community during the past 15 years, and as we now adopt the Hipcamp brand in the UK, we look forward to continuing to build on that trust. Our entire community will benefit from the Hipcamp platform – which makes getting outside at a moment’s notice easier than ever.”

Knight will be Hipcamp’s UK country director for Hipcamp.

“One of our core beliefs is that getting outside should be simple,” said Hipcamp Founder and CEO Alyssa Ravasio. “Jonathan and his team have done so much great work to make that mission possible in the UK. I’m excited to further our shared mission of getting more people outside and inspiring a new love for nature.”

Hipcamp Hosts located in the UK will be able to enjoy the protection and benefits the Hipcamp platform provides. They’ll be eligible to take advantage of the Hipcamp Liability Insurance Policy, which protects hosts for up to £1M.

Bookings on the Hipcamp website provide economic opportunities to rural communities and aid UK farmers, ranchers, vintners, and other landowners create new revenue streams to conserve their land and keep it wild.

Hipcamp will also expand its photography programs to the UK. The program uses the work of local photographers to capture images of the wide range of stays available via Hipcamp.

As pandemic-related travel restrictions ease, Hipcamp anticipated significant demand to increase for outdoor stays in the UK and its other markets.
