The Dyrt launches commission-free reservations for campgrounds

PORTLAND, Oregon., November 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Dyrt is disrupting the camping industry by introducing commission-free reservations for campgrounds. The #1 camping app, with over 30 million camper visits annually, is stepping up its efforts to help campgrounds grow their business.

“We all know the old business model that will soon be obsolete, says The Dyrt CEO Kevin Long. “A campground owner lists their property with a booking partner who takes a commission. We are able to get more bookings for campground owners without taking a discount.”

The Dyrt is dedicated to creating a new, more cost-effective model for all types of campsites: tent, RV and glamping. The top 500 properties that enable snapshot reservations on The Dyrt will get a $100 activation bonus and a free premium research boost.

“Booking commissions eat up a significant portion of my profits,” says Sequoia Slentz, Owner Buckridge Grove in Mendocino, California, and uses several online services for reservations. “Commission-free bookings are a game changer for the campground industry. We will primarily be using The Dyrt for bookings in the future.”

“Traditional booking platforms charge 5-15% and simply don’t have the ability to lower without compromising their business,” Long says. “Commission-free bookings allow campground owners to increase revenue and meet expenses without affecting their customers.”

The Dyrt launched its premium subscription for campers, The Dyrt PRO, in 2019 and the business has grown rapidly ever since. For $36 per year, campers have access to map layers showing free camping, a road trip planner and more. It is the success of this subscription model for campers that allows The Dyrt to offer such advantageous conditions to campgrounds.

“With the most photos and reviews from any source for over 40,000 campgrounds, taking over reservations is the next logical step,” says Long. “Our unique model will further assist campers and campgrounds for years to come.”
