AccessCamping.com Offers Online Bookings
AccessCamping.com will soon have the ability to process instant online reservations through an agreement with BookYourSite.com, including reservations made through iPhones and other hand-held devices.
“This is a big deal for the thousands of parks listed on AccessCamping.com,”said Brian Schaeffer, president of Crowley, Texas-based AGS, which hosts AccessCamping.com. “Parks that choose to offer instant online reservations through AccessCamping.com will be able to have a BookYourSite icon right next to their park listing, which is hot-linked to the park’s website. This will give consumers the ability to either visit the park’s website or go directly to BookYourSite.com to book a reservation at that park.”
According to a press release, the online reservations capability is made possible through a cross marketing agreement with Niagara Falls, Ont.-based Mission Management Information Systems, which processes online campground reservations through BookYourSite.com, which will also gain access to all of the campground content that is currently provided for each park listed on AccessCamping.com.
“This will also give us the ability to add quality parks and provide more content through our BookYourSite web portal, iPhone, and Android apps,” said Peter Kearns, vice president of Mission Management. “Each listing on BookYourSite can provide rates, availability, amenity details and now, through this agreement, park maps and guest guide information. Once a park is selected the camper has the option to securely book their reservation online or call the park to book.”
BookYourSite is an online booking website and directory that provides information about campgrounds throughout North America. The site currently hosts over 950 subscribers consisting predominantly of top quality private campgrounds, including parks affiliated with Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts.
AccessCamping.com lists over a thousand campgrounds, RV parks and resorts across North America. The website also showcases all of the site map / guest guide information for AGS customers across the continent. Schaeffer observed, “This is an amazing affiliation between two of the oldest and most well respected brands in the campground industry that have served the needs of campgrounds and campers with integrity for well over nearly 50 years.”
