1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

Jethro was working for one of Australia’s largest campervan companies. He got the wheels in motion, but it wasn’t until meeting Kate, a budding entrepreneur and travel enthusiast, that he found a co-driver and the gears started changing.

The company has since developed into what you see here. Our mission is to bring the beaten track online. Whether you want to find a van, a park, a new journey or simply some inspiration, Park My Van is for you.

2. WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

…solve two of the biggest problems in the industry:

  1. Which van (or RV, campervan, motorhome or caravan) should you hire?
  2. Where should you park it?

It does this by…

Park My Van currently compares over 30 van hire companies, and over 5,300 van park locations within Australia. This makes PMV currently the largest online provider of verified listings and one of the biggest sites in the industry.

By being able to compare over 30 van hire companies, the individual features of each van can be analysed to suit different travelers’ needs.
