Founders looking to create more partnerships
A FLEDGLING internet company claims it has the largest verified listing of accommodation for caravanners and other RV travellers.
Now the founding duo of Parkmyvan.com is looking for industry partnerships.
PMV is a tourism start-up business that helps traveller’s compare, hire and book all their caravanning, motorhoming and RV needs.
Travellers are able to compare vans, as well as parks, to book their transport and accommodation in one central location – online.
Many start-ups bringing innovation to an industry often fly under the radar, and the Australian RV industry is no exception.
Call it a lack of press, funding or perhaps marketing prowess ... these unknown start-ups are solving some of the industry's biggest problems.
Sydney-based company Parkmyvan.com ‒ co-founded by Jethro Batts and Kate Reynolds ‒ is one start-up in question.
In fairness, PMV has had some media attention, but nowhere near what warrants a start-up taking on this multi-billion dollar market.
PMV touts itself as the "Webjet of RVs", comparing all RV hire and RV park accommodation listings across Australia.
This wealth of information creates a one-stop shop for travellers hitting the road Down Under.
PMV has done this by partnering with Camps, who has assisted it in modernising the industry by bringing caravan park accommodation online.
