Vanpacking:
Use open spaces for campers

You, as the owner of a hostel, youth hostel, surf camp or similar, can rent out open spaces as pitches to travelers with a camper, caravan or tent to spend the night.

Sell extras to additional guests

Offered extras, such as tours, breakfast, wellness offers or similar can be sold to new, additional, guests.

Use of existing infrastructure

The existing infrastructure, such as showers, toilets or a kitchen can be used by the new guests without much additional effort.

Monetization of unused space

Additional income can be generated by leasing parking spaces in existing areas, such as parking lots, gardens, or courtyards.

Increase awareness and new target group

The general awareness of one's own business can be increased and a new, additional target group can be developed without much effort.

What is VANPACKING ?

The idea is relatively new and combines camping with hotel/hostel stays. In this case, the guest stays overnight in a van, camper, or tent in a parking lot or open space of the hotel or hostel. The special thing about it is that the guest can use the services of the facilities and easily socialize with other travelers.

We at You and a View are bringing the trend to Europe.

Can a parking space be offered and rented out on the property?

There is a reason that hosts of You and a View can only rent out a maximum of three pitches on the property. This is because they do not fall under the transnational definition of camping and tent sites. Means for the hosts that they are not “structural installations” for which a permit from the competent authority is required. Of course, it is important that the offered pitches are not located in nature reserves, landscape protection areas, FFH zones, biospheres, etc.

Why should you advertise and add a listing?

The best reasons to advertise pitches through You and a View!

1. Additional source of income from parking space rental
2. Increase in direct marketing
3. Renting with little own effort
4. Advertise pitches free of charge
5. Flexibility in the rental of the pitch
6. Quality management of the advertisements

Example from hotel pitch

We like to have guests around. Campers are completely relaxed, free visitors who often seek a balance to their conventional everyday life with us. We have already made many personal friends through it.

We would like to offer the opportunity to look behind the facades. Does anyone actually know a farmer? People can watch us create a high-quality food product. Why shouldn't I show this?

If you like peace and quiet and also want to have fun, you've come to the right place. I think it's nice to be able to holiday locally. The platform is building up great and we are looking forward to welcoming more campers.

You still have questions?

You and a View is an intermediary platform for campers who want to camp away from the mass of green and natural, individual pitches. And for those who want to host. Anyone who owns a rural field, a farm or a nice big garden with a view of the horizon can join in and become a host.

Your advertisement on our website is 100% free of charge!If your pitch is successfully placed, you keep 87.5% of the revenue. 12.5% is reserved by You and a View to cover marketing, software, systems and communication costs.

Our guests do not expect a usual campsite from you! You have an unused space in the yard and you don’t know what could be there? Perfect for a pitch on You and a View, whether grass, concrete or dirt track. The only important thing is that the pictures in the advertisement represent the pitch as realistically as possible.

If the guest books your pitch on our website, the booking is immediately confirmed and booked.

Guest and host are liable in case of damage with their personal liability insurance. You and a View accepts no liability for any arrangements between you and the guests. The legal and factual requirements of the published pitches must be checked by you in each individual case. The activity of You and a View is limited exclusively to the publication of the data and the marketing through the pitch placement platform. You and a View is not liable for damages or other claims arising from the relationship between host and guest.

Only as much effort as you want. You can simply offer the pitch without extras and theoretically not even have to be on site, or you can offer various extras such as electricity, water, shower and leisure activities and charge for the extra effort.
