Spot2Nite, an online travel agency in the camping industry, has broadened its marketplace to include a variety of outdoor accommodations, the company announced today.
This expansion extends beyond its traditional focus on RV campsites to encompass campgrounds, RV parks, glamping resorts, private land, and select state parks.
The new development introduces an array of unique lodging experiences, including cabins, cottages, wagons, yurts, tipis, vacation homes, Airstreams, and safari tents. This move aims to cater to a wider audience of outdoor enthusiasts, offering more diverse camping experiences.
Spot2Nite’s booking engine integrates with top property management systems such as Checkfront, Good Sam Campground Solutions, MYSites, Newbook, ResNexus, ResortForward, RMS, Roverpass, Staylist, and Tentrr. This integration ensures real-time information on availability and pricing across North America.
The company’s collaboration with industry partners like Camping World, Good Sam, ReserveAmerica, and AdventureGenie reaches over 60 million outdoor enthusiasts. This partnership is expected to enhance the booking process and increase visibility for the properties listed on Spot2Nite’s platform.
For campground and outdoor hospitality operators, the expansion presents an opportunity to list various lodging units, potentially attracting a broader range of customers and increasing revenue. This development is seen as a strategic move to augment the existing inventory on Spot2Nite and engage a new demographic of outdoor enthusiasts.
Mike Perrone, chief product officer of Spot2Nite, highlighted the company’s initiative to diversify the camping experience.
“Creating a single destination for people to efficiently find and book camping stays, now with accommodation categories to suit every style, makes camping more accessible than ever,” Perrone said.
The expansion also aims to deliver commission-free reservations directly to property owners, aligning with the interests of campground and outdoor hospitality operators.
Founded by a family of avid RVers, Spot2Nite operates as a mobile app and website. It serves as a booking engine and OTA, allowing campers to find and book outdoor accommodations in real time. Through integrations with property management systems and marketing channel partners, Spot2Nite promotes outdoor accommodation inventory to a large audience of outdoor enthusiasts.
This expansion by Spot2Nite is seen as a significant step in making diverse outdoor experiences more accessible to campers and supporting the growth of the campground and outdoor hospitality industry.
