PaulCamper, the European online platform for motorhome and campervan sharing, wants to dispel any myths around renting and says there’s never been a better time to become a “landlord”.
As the UK steps gingerly into the summer and holidays abroad, looking a bit up in the air, UK travellers have been eagerly buying into the staycation alternative.
However, this year is slightly different from previous ones, with many lodges, cottages, and other accommodation fully booked up for the summer month. Therefore, Brits have needed to explore different options to get away, and one of the most popular ways to do this in 2021 is to rent a campervan.
PaulCamper, Europe’s largest online platform for motorhome and campervan sharing, wants to dispel some of the myths surrounding renting out a Campervan and, with staycations currently all the rage, they firmly believe that there’s never been a better time to rent yours out!
When deciding to rent out your Campervan, the sharing platform is well aware that prospective renters may have many questions before deciding this is the right option for them. There are, of course, many various topics; however, most of them tend to be about ensuring their vehicle is looked after properly while it is out with its new tenants.
Typical questions owners tend to have are “Will I get paid if I rent out my Campervan?”; “Will my vehicle be insured if I rent it out?”; “What if my Campervan gets damaged if I rent it out?” etc.
Listing your vehicle on the PaulCamper platform couldn’t be easier as it just involves a few simple online steps. Contrary to what some might believe, it is the owner who decides the price, and there’s a team of experts on hand, should you need them, to assist you along the way and to help perfect the perfect profile.
Once listed, a potential renter sends a booking request via the PaulCamper website. The owner will receive the request in the ‘My bookings’ section of their PaulCamper account and then have 48 hours to respond and answer any questions. Only when the owner and renter agree does any contract become binding.
PaulCamper works with a payment service provider called MANGOPAY, where funds are held securely until they are paid out on the first day of the rental period. This ensures any owner will receive the payment into their account a few days later.
When renting your Campervan out with PaulCamper, it is fully insured via Allianz, so renting out your vehicle should be worry-free. In addition to this, a deposit is also taken at the time of booking. This covers any excess the insurance may charge if the need arises.
If you’re looking for extra earning potential, and your motorhome or Campervan is sitting in a garage or on a drive, unused, PaulCamper might just be the answer.
