RVnGO, peer-to-peer service for RV rentals, recently announced its rentals are automatically covered by a $1 million auto liability coverage. It is free to list RVs for rent and hosts get 100 percent of the booking, guests pay a 3 percent credit card processing fee and a daily premium for the insurance. The RVnGO platform also gives hosts free management tools to manage its fleet and communicate with its guests.
“We’ve introduced a new way of doing business, we didn’t want to be like other peer-to-peer or finder sites that would intercept people searching on the internet and then stand between them and what they were looking for to extract a fee,” said Paul Kacir, RVnGO founder and CEO.“We didn’t want to base our business model on essentially being a nuisance. … We’re more like Google, we help people find what they’re looking for and remove transaction frictions instead of creating them, and like Google we’ll make our living selling compelling add on services.”
