The four-day Easter weekend (15th -18th April) is fast approaching and provides the perfect excuse for families to invest in some much needed quality time together.
There are plenty of ways to experience family fun together – including renting a motorcaravan.
Hiring a campervan or motorhome allows families of all sizes to spend precious time together, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and are naturally Covid secure too.
Plus appetite for them is on the rise – with Goboony the Airbnb inspired website reporting Easter weekend bookings have increased by 545% between the years 2019 and 2021!
Website clicks on six-berth vehicles in the month running up to Easter this year are up 55% in comparison to last year.
Inspired by Airbnb, Mark de Vos and Foppe Mijnlieff started the Goboony platform in 2015 to focus on the motorhome and camper van community. This allows camper owners to earn back what they spent to purchase and maintain their vehicles. That being said, many users simply rent them out to make others happy and meet new people.
Goboony now has over 6,000 vehicles on its platform, and they have already sent more than 100,000 people on holiday from the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Italy and Belgium.
Goboony believes that everyone should experience the freedom of a motorhome holiday at least once in their life, and they are well on the way to achieving that!
They are growing fast and will soon be the largest camper community in Europe. Their motto ‘Share the freedom’ says it all. They not only share motorhomes but also inspirational ideas and tips on the most beautiful destinations, or as they call them, boonies!
