Whether you are a journalist, blogger or a really VANatical campervanner interested in our back-story, you’re obviously special to us. So no matter in what capacity you got to our media kit, we hope you like our brief yet vantastic story.
Background... Kate and Jethro officially started Park My Van (PMV) in Feb 2013. Since PMV's creation, the route has evolved to form what you see here today; a beautiful and talented small team consisting of the co-founders, investors and talented staff. PMV is supported by valuable industry and tech investors. If this isn't enough, we have leading business advisors and marketing gurus on board.
Now... PMV has had many transitions, but we now explain ourselves as "the Webjet for vanning and camping around Australia." You can currently compare and book over 20 amazing campervan hire companies on our site and search over 5000 caravan parks and paid & free camping sites.
This is a mammoth feat alone and with many thanks to our industry partners, all of our caravan and camping sites are 100% verified. We are currently (fingers crossed) on track to be the number one site to go vanning, glamping and camping in Australia by 2015.
Traction... After 18 months in development, we officially launched in Australia in early June with zero fanfare and no wild party - just heads down and bums up. Within a few days, we had a couple of bookings and... our phones rang! About time we had calls other than from telemarketers and neglected family members!
So why should you be interested?
If you want to know more on why this multi-billion dollar industry is so exciting and just how we're planning to take our small share of it not just here, but into other campervanning countries, please email marketing[at]parkmyvan.com.au.
Until then...if you have any questions, get in touch with one of us at jethro[at]parkmyvan.com.au or kate[at]parkmyvan.com.au. If you just can't wait, call us on (02) 800 69 768.
Thanks for joining the journey. Much love from,
Jethro, Kate, Mitch, Jenny, Kathrina, Mick, and Olive (PMV's mascot).
