Our mission is to help more people experience the joys of camping and caravanning.
The Camplify Story
Camplify was borne out of the 2014 NRMA Slingshot Jumpstart Program - a corporate accelerator run by Australia’s largest breakdown cover provider. This high-tech accelerator provides seed funding and a mentoring program to enable talented entrepreneurs to build remarkable, innovative companies. Our peer-to-peer caravan hire and RV sharing service was developed by an Aussie team of camping & caravanning lovers who saw a need for something new. The idea came from CEO Justin Hales’ childhood love of caravanning.
Justin and his family used to holiday in their 1980 touring caravan every chance they got. However, on one of these trips Justin’s family were ran off the road and had an accident. After this experience, his parents made the decision to sell their caravan and finish their love affair with caravanning. As an adult, Justin wanted to recapture this love affair. For him though, buying a caravan just wasn’t an option. Justin decided we would develop an effective and innovative way to link holidaymakers with caravan, trailer tent, motorhome or campervan owners. And so, Camplify was born.
Camplify in the UK
In less than two years, Camplify grew to over 20,000 members in Australia and has connected thousands of holidaymakers with private owners of caravans, motorhomes and campers. We have paid out millions of dollars to Aussie RV owners and now we’re determined to do the same in the UK! The UK has over 800,000 registered RVs and the majority of them don’t get used for more than 2 weeks per year. We are here to help put all those under-utilised assets to better use!
