Outdoorsy partners with Liberty Mutual to offer RV Rental Insurance

Apr 1, 2019 | Member News

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Outdoorsy (outdoorsy.com), an RV rental and outdoor experiences marketplace, announced its new partnership with Liberty Mutual. This partnership includes three levels of RV rental insurance allowing owners and renters to travel throughout the U.S. and Canada in motorhomes, campervans, caravans, travel trailers and adventure vehicles. Since going live with the partnership on March 1, Outdoorsy has seen a 250 percent increase in online bookings when including Liberty Insurance.

A roadblock to the outdoor travel sharing economy has been insurance protection for the owner, the renter and the platform, according to the release. Owners can rent out their RV to earn extra income while having insurance protection. Renters select coverage packages that include levels of liability, comprehensive and collision protection, 24/7 roadside services, trip protection, travel and concierge vacation planning services.r

“At Outdoorsy, we aren’t just looking to create the next ‘big thing’ in the sharing economy, we want to develop greater trust and safety for our community of passionate outdoor enthusiasts who want to connect and share their outdoor travel experiences with the world,” says Jeff Cavins, Outdoorsy CEO. “With our Liberty Mutual partnership, we have expanded and introduced a range of new coverage solutions for millions of travelers. This removes a major barrier for consumers, increases coverage for owners, while making one of the most complicated parts of the rental experience, choosing insurance, simple and turnkey for our customers.”

The company released new coverage tiers giving customers the ability to increase their coverages, reduce deductibles, as well as add trip protections and vacation financing options.

Three tiered insurance packages are offered:

peace of mind coverage includes $1 million in liability insurance, $500,000 in physical damage protection for the consumer and any third party, plus windshield damage protection, lowered deductibles, 24/7 live customer support, roadside assistance, and concierge and trip planning services.

Essential coverage provides state minimum liability insurance and $100,000 in physical damage protection for the consumer and any third party, plus 24/7 roadside assistance for all U.S. geographies.

Risk Taker coverage provides state required minimum insurance, $15,000 in physical damage coverage and 24/7 live customer support.

All coverages can be upgraded to include interior damage insurance, trip cancellation insurance, and vacation financing.

Liberty Mutual motorhome and recreational trailer personal policyholders can now rent their RVs using the Outdoorsy platform.
