The Dyrt Waives Fees for Campers, Campgrounds

Camping app The Dyrt is now waiving fees for campers and campgrounds.

As per a press release, last year, the commission-free bookings model for properties resulted in a surge of new bookable inventory as they became the only major camping platform to allow campgrounds, RV parks, and private landowners to access reservations for no cost at all.

Now, The Dyrt allows campers to avoid additional fees too. With the purchase of the Dyrt PRO, a $36/year premium subscription, campers pay only the campground’s nightly rate for every booking. This large amount of savings is becoming very popular among users.

“The camping reservation industry is built on extra booking fees that platforms have to win over and over again,” says The Dyrt CEO Kevin Long.

“Our model saves The Dyrt PRO subscribers money by waiving those annoying fees. It’s Amazon Prime for campground reservations — a subscription that campers will renew year after year because it pays for itself so quickly.”

In addition to avoiding additional costs for booking campground reservations, The Dyrt PRO members also enjoy additional PRO discounts of 10-40% off most campgrounds in The Dyrt.

“We are seeing consumer fatigue with extra expense in outdoor industries as people return to travel,” says Kevin Iudicello, a partner at Realization Capital Partners, which recently led The Dyrt’s $11M Series B.

“The Dyrt has built an incredibly engaged camping community and is perfectly positioned to disrupt the vertical with their PRO Discounts offer. For even occasional campers, it’s a no-brainer, and for anyone who camps regularly, it’s a game-changer.”

Fueled by an increase of campers during the pandemic, the camping community is growing rapidly in the U.S. Last year, one in five Americans went camping, and 8.3 million people camped for the first time.

“Both experienced campers and newcomers are responding very well to transparent pricing without additional fees,” says Long.

“And best of all, as campgrounds are increasingly at full capacity, we are helping small business campground owners increase revenue without raising rates because we don’t charge them anything extra either.”
