By innovating protection for all parties, the partnership enhances and simplifies the consumer rental experience for outdoor travel
SAN FRANCISCO, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Outdoorsy (outdoorsy.com), the world's fastest-growing RV rental and outdoor experiences marketplace, announces its new partnership with Liberty Mutual. This partnership includes three levels of industry-first RV rental insurance allowing both owners and renters to safely travel throughout the U.S. and Canada in motorhomes, campervans, caravans, travel trailers and adventure vehicles. Since going live with the partnership on March 1, Outdoorsy has seen a 250 percent increase in online bookings when including Liberty Insurance.
A major roadblock to the outdoor travel sharing economy has been insurance protection for the owner, the renter and the platform. The Liberty Mutual and Outdoorsy partnership solved that challenge with new product offerings representing a new height of innovation in the marketplace economy. Owners can turn their idle RV into profit centers by earning upwards of $50K in supplementary income with insurance protection at no extra charge. Renters select from an array of coverage packages that include multiple levels of liability, comprehensive and collision protection, 24/7 roadside services, trip protection, travel and concierge vacation planning services.
"At Outdoorsy, we aren't just looking to create the next 'big thing' in the sharing economy, we want to develop greater trust and safety for our community of passionate outdoor enthusiasts who want to connect and share their outdoor travel experiences with the world," says Jeff Cavins, Outdoorsy CEO. "With our Liberty Mutual partnership, we have expanded and introduced a range of new coverage solutions for millions of travelers. This removes a major barrier for consumers, increases coverage for owners, while making one of the most complicated parts of the rental experience, choosing insurance, simple and turnkey for our customers."
The company released new coverage tiers tailored to a broad range of consumer needs, giving them the ability to increase their coverages, reduce deductibles, as well as add trip protections and vacation financing options. They are also unique because they combine Outdoorsy's significant renter support options with tiered insurance protections.
- Peace of Mind coverage includes $1M in liability insurance, $500K in physical damage protection for the consumer and any third party, plus windshield damage protection, lowered deductibles, 24/7 live customer support, roadside assistance, and concierge and trip planning services.
- Essential coverage provides state minimum liability insurance and $100K in physical damage protection for the consumer and any third party, plus 24/7 roadside assistance for all U.S. geographies.
- Risk Taker coverage provides state required minimum insurance, $15K in physical damage coverage and 24/7 live customer support.
All coverages can be upgraded to include interior damage insurance, trip cancellation insurance, and vacation financing to make for the safest vacation experience imaginable.
Liberty Mutual motorhome and recreational trailer personal policyholders can now rent their RVs using the Outdoorsy platform.
