automation for unmanned public camper areas
The benefits of camper tourism in your town, without the issues!
Local authorities often have concerns managing camper tourism on their territory
Every camper in the area brings on average 75 euro per day in the local economy. This is a significant benefit for the local economy. But there are also concerns.
Unauthorized wild camping
Excessive use – people staying longer than permitted
Theft in campers, vandalism and litter
No proof of local economic return of designated camper areas
Excessive traffic when the area is already full
Seasonal differences (allow/disallow certain periods)
Some communes consider making the area paid to address these problems. But this used to require a manned operation or an payment terminal and barrier, which is in both cases very expensive.
Other municipalities simply install bans on campers or height barriers. But the legal grounds for this are increasingly being successfully challenged. Moreover, this does not serve the local economy and presents a very negative image.
Camprea solves these problems in a simple and effective way while maintaining the benefits.
No payment terminal or barrier required. Guests register and pay after scanning a QR-code.
Show real-time availability
Avoid unnecessary traffic driving to your site when it is already full. Camprea provides the real-time availability that can be embedded in your website or shown on the free camprea app.
Help local events or commerce
Inform visitors on local commerce or cultural venues. Tell them where and when is the local market. Or guide them to your tourist office website.
Convenient registration and payment
Visitors scan a QR-code and register and pay for their stay in a multilanguage web-app that immediately appears after scanning. There is no need to install an app or to have any kind of membership. All common payment methods and debit/credit cards are supported. Wifi-codes or other access codes can be automatically sent by email or sms.
Get notified when there is an issue
Who can better and faster detect issues like a leaking water tap or a clogged drain than the people who use it? Visitors can use the app to report a problem. This greatly eliminates the need for checkups when there is nothing to fix. And you provide a better visitor experience at the same time!
Avoid long stayers on free camper areas
It is a well known problem and probably the biggest frustrations of camper tourists and towns: people that do not respect the maximum stay period.
They sometimes occupy camper pitches for weeks and keep regular tourists away.
Camprea solves this problem on different levels:
- By notifying visitors that their maximum stay has been reached. This also creates awareness that an excess stay will be noticed and could be sanctioned
- By notifying the operator of the area when a visitor exceeds the maximum period with more than a definable grace period
