Campspot, a premier online marketplace for RV resorts, family campgrounds, cabins, and glamping, has announced its partnership with Sensible Weather, a pioneering firm specializing in climate risk technology.
This partnership aims to cushion outdoor enthusiasts from unpredictable weather disruptions, thereby enabling a seamless camping experience.
Campspot will now offer its users the ability to append a Weather Guarantee to their reservations. This exciting feature, which extends to more than 200,000 listed campsites on Campspot’s platform, is designed to safeguard campers against Mother Nature’s unpredictability.
Sensible Weather, at the forefront of revolutionizing the way consumers interact with weather forecasts, employs state-of-the-art satellite imagery and climate analytics. These tools, culminating over a decade of rigorous research and development in industry and academia, enable the firm to quantify and manage weather risks precisely.
Through this collaboration, Sensible Weather’s Weather Guarantee ensures reimbursements to campers without any complicated claims process.
Payouts, based on the day’s weather forecast, can be up to 100% of the nightly rate and are dispatched in real-time via text notification, often preempting the predicted adverse weather event.
Nick Cavanaugh, Ph.D., CEO & founder of Sensible Weather, expressed the company’s dedication to fostering stress-free adventures. He said, “We want to empower everyone to enjoy stress-free adventures, and partnering with Campspot to offer our Weather Guarantees at campsites across the U.S. is our way of helping to make the unpredictable more predictable and give campers peace of mind.”
This partnership arrives during a time of substantial growth within the camping industry. A report by the Outdoor Industry Association highlighted that the number of outdoor enthusiasts had increased by over 10 million since March 2020. Campspot alone saw more than 3 million site reservations made through its platform in 2022.
The company, North America’s largest reservations platform and software provider for private campgrounds, is committed to transforming the industry with its customer-first approach. Campspot CEO Michael Scheinman spoke about the partnership: “Being outdoors and appreciating nature is a fundamental part of any camping trip, so we’re thrilled to be able to offer our campers a way to ensure they can enjoy their experience with Campspot – or to be reimbursed quickly and easily by Sensible’s Weather Guarantees even if they can’t.”
