Outdoorsy beat out other RV rental marketplaces on the list, coming in at No. 9 in the Travel Experiences category, and clocking the longest average visit duration of all the sites in the category.

"As the best measure of the digital world, we are excited to spotlight this year's winners, and to follow their success in the months to come."
Outdoorsy, making the list of the most visited websites with the highest engagement rate in 2020, joined other well-known brands with exceptional digital performance, including Virgin Galactic, MSNBC, The Honest Company, Walmart and more. Since its launch in 2015, Outdoorsy has experienced exponential growth, booking more than 9,000 years of vacation travel, and is on target to hit $1B in total transactions by the end of Q1. With 200,000+ unique vehicles available to rent in 4,800+ cities across 14 countries, Outdoorsy has emerged as a preferred form of travel for consumers, offering a safe, self-contained mode of transport and empowering RV owners to establish a new source of financial income.
"We're proud that our team's hard work led to Outdoorsy being recognized as one of the fastest growing websites in this year's Digital 100," says Jeff Cavins, Co-founder and CEO of Outdoorsy. "This past year provided its share of challenges for the travel industry, so playing a key role in getting travelers back on the road safely has been a fulfilling journey for everyone who works at the company. Outdoorsy's mission is to make the outdoors accessible to people all over the globe, and we are seeing people of all ages embrace outdoor road travel. As we continue to build momentum around fast-growing demand, we're eager to see Outdoorsy become a household name in 2021.
