LOS ANGELES (July 12, 2023) – Climate risk technology company, Sensible Weather, announces today its new strategic partnership with Campspot, the leading online marketplace for RV resorts, family campgrounds, cabins, glamping options, and more.
Sensible Weather is focused on helping change the way consumers interact with the weather, with Weather Guarantees that provide reimbursements when Mother Nature has other plans for their outdoor experiences. Through this partnership, Campspot campers will be able to add a Weather Guarantee to their bookings at 200,000+ campsites through the Campspot marketplace. As part of the site’s intuitive, easy-to-navigate guest booking experience, Weather Guarantees are now offered as an add-on to protect campers’ purchases.
Sensible Weather quantifies and manages weather risk for campers, using cutting-edge satellite imagery and climate analytics developed from over a decade’s worth of research in industry and academia. Sensible Weather’s payouts are managed based on pre-set parameters, which means no haggling or claims processes. Sensible Weather pays travelers up to 100% of their nightly rate in real-time, based on the day-of forecast, via a text notification typically before the predicted weather event occurs.
“We want to empower everyone to enjoy stress-free adventures, and partnering with Campspot to offer our Weather Guarantees at campsites across the U.S. is our way of helping to make the unpredictable more predictable and give campers peace of mind,” says Nick Cavanaugh, Ph.D., Sensible Weather CEO & Founder.
Camping has grown incrementally over the last few years, with more than 10 million new participants taking part in outdoor recreation since March 2020, according to an August 2022 report from the Outdoor Industry Association. With 3 million+ site reservations made through Campspot in 2022 alone, the company is focused on creating a more modern, unparalleled camping booking experience for campers and campgrounds owners alike. Today, Campspot is North America’s largest reservations platform and software provider for private campgrounds and is helping to transform the industry with its customer-first approach.
“Being outdoors and appreciating nature is a fundamental part of any camping trip, so we’re thrilled to be able to offer our campers a way to ensure they can enjoy their experience with Campspot - or to be reimbursed quickly and easily by Sensible’s Weather Guarantees even if they can’t,” says Campspot CEO Michael Scheinman.
