NEW YORK & LOS ANGELES - Tentrr, a leader in ready-to-go camping accommodations with over a thousand fully-equipped campsites across the USA, announced a first-of-its-kind partnership with Sensible Weather, a climate risk technology company. While Tentrr sites are built on above-ground platforms with 100% rain-proof canvas wall tents and memory foam mattresses, we all know that rain can dampen daytime fun in the great outdoors.
As part of the partnership, Tentrr campers can now protect their outdoor experiences by adding Sensible’s Weather Guarantee coverage to bookings at over 1,200 Tentrr campsites. Weather Guarantees automatically reimburse campers when rain impacts their stay at a Tentrr site.
“The number one reason campers are hesitant to commit to a camping trip is the possibility of rain. Our partnership with Sensible Weather eliminates this concern and further enhances Tentrr’s unique outdoor experience for our campers," said Todd King, Vice President of Marketing at Tentrr. “While we can’t control the weather, we can now make a Tentrr camping trip even more enjoyable by offering automatic reimbursement for any reservation impacted by rain.”
Sensible Weather uses sophisticated climate data models to determine the chance of rain during a stay at a Tentrr site. During the booking process on Tentrr.com, the guest is offered the option to purchase the “Rain Guarantee” at checkout for their campsite reservations. The price for this guarantee is a nominal percentage of the nightly rate. Once selected, if rain is forecasted to occur during a covered Tentrr reservation, Sensible Weather automatically texts the camper a link to easily collect their reimbursement each morning of their trip. Rain Guarantee payments are processed immediately, with payouts based on the number of hours the experience is negatively impacted by weather. For example, Sensible recently paid a Tentrr camper 100% reimbursement on their daily Tentrr rate for rain on a March camping trip at Clarkco State Park in Mississippi.
“With climate increasingly impacting vacations and outdoor experiences, Sensible’s Weather Guarantee service offers Tentrr campers peace of mind when booking reservations online. Campers who opt to purchase a Weather Guarantee with their Tentrr bookings know they’ll be able to recoup their reservation costs when a few hours of unwanted rain interferes with their outdoor plans,” said Nick Cavanaugh, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Sensible Weather. “Our embedded fintech service helps Tentrr increase conversion rates and ancillary revenues, while at the same time decreasing last-minute cancellations and enhancing their guest experience.”
Tentrr is launching the Rain Guarantee across its growing portfolio of fully-equipped campsites on beautiful public and private land.
