Today RVshare announces its peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace is expanding to Canada with insurance, a dedicated Canadian partner, and bilingual support.
While RVshare, the largest and most visited RV rental platform in the U.S., has taken its time entering the Canadian market, CEO Joel Clark explains it is with good reason: “We knew there was no way we could responsibly launch in Canada without a dedicated team and bilingual customer support.”
“After doing our due diligence on the Canadian RV rental market and taking the time to really understand what the Canadian customer wants, it felt like it would be disrespectful to launch there without a dedicated Canadian team.”
To do right by Canadian customers, RVshare has teamed up with Canada’s leading peer-to-peer platform, RVezy, capitalizing on their recent gains in securing fully insured status for their rentals across the country.
Since launching in 2016, RVezy has pioneered a first in Canadian insurance with a policy covering private motorhome rentals that originate in the provinces of Ontario, Alberta and Quebec and trailers across Canada.
Headquartered in Ottawa and fresh off a strong showing on CBC’s Dragon’s Den, RVezy is excited about the partnership and thinks the companies are a great match.
“They are not your typical, flashy U.S. tech guys,” RVezy CEO Michael McNaught says. “They are a blue-collar team that understands the RV customer and have built what is obviously the best platform in the States.”
“This will help drive even more rentals to our RV owners here in Canada,” McNaught adds.
RVshare reciprocates the admiration: “They are such a talented team of great people,” Clark says, “and they have accomplished so much so fast. Watching their growth has been inspiring. We couldn’t ask for a better partner to serve the Canadian customer.”
RVshare will also power U.S. rentals for the RVezy platform, making it easier than ever for Canadians to rent RVs in the States.
