“In the past two years alone, the business has experienced triple-digit supply growth (236%) as a result of a strong increase in motorhome ownership across Europe and the growing popularity of ‘van life’ amongst the younger generations. Our platform is an international community where motorhome enthusiasts - owners and travelers - are connecting and sharing their passion for having freedom and adventure on the open road. It’s an incredibly exciting place to be,”says Goboony CEO Mark de Vos.
“While many are continuing to adventure closer to home, we are not only witnessing motorhomes rise in popularity but, as an online platform, are seeing how our technology is pioneering the way in facilitating demand and supply issues. The recent injection from No Such Ventures allows us to take our brand, and our story, to the next level. Expanding our geography to France and Germany and enhancing our current products and services at an accelerated pace.”
As the uncertainty of the pandemic continues, Goboony offers travelers flexible travel terms and continually adjust its pricing model to adapt to changes.
