Peer-to-peer RV rental company Outdoorsy has launched in Canada, opening offices and employing Canadians in customer service, marketing and bilingual sales positions.
The Outdoorsy platform is a sharing economy with comprehensive insurance coverage, bank-level secure online payments, and optional roadside assistance and GPS tracking.
“I’m a proud Canadian, born and bred. The company was started in my home in Vancouver, Canada, but scaled in the U.S.,” said Jen Young, chief marketing officer. “We’re pumped to finally launch it with Aviva, the best insurance partner bringing insurance solutions to Canadians from coast to coast.”
Aviva Canada has underwritten a $2 million third party liability insurance program in partnership with Outdoorsy and backed the company’s launch in Canada.
The partnership between Aviva and Outdoorsy introduces an insurance solution allowing RV owners to turn their parked RV into profit centers by earning extra income renting to other campers through Outdoorsy with insurance coverage included at no extra charge.
“We’re excited to team up with Outdoorsy because they are the most reputable and sustainable partner in this business, winning the hearts and minds of RV enthusiasts,” said Daniel Ignoto, Aviva Canada VP of lifestyle personal insurance. “We’re both committed to building products that have long-term value for our customers and support the way they’d like to travel.”
“Outdoorsy’s Canadian RV insurance solution and dedicated Canadian support team provides the same quality experience that we are known for in the U.S.,” said Jeff Cavins, Outdoorsy CEO.
