On this platform, users can search for available pitches at campsites and compare prices, among other things. The network of the three cooperating mobility clubs includes more than 3,000 campsites that can be booked online. With a potential reach of 27 million members of the three transport clubs, “one of the camping portals with the widest reach in Europe” will be created, according to the press release.

The ACAC remains the main owner of the platform with 52.5%. ANWB now holds 42.0 percent and TCS 5.5 percent. Together, the shareholders are reportedly investing 6.6 million euros to ensure the merger and further growth in other European markets. Among other things, country versions in English, French and Italian are to be created in the near future.
