Camplify Flood Relief Program

As floods ravage areas of Queensland and New South Wales, many Australians have found themselves stranded, without a home and lacking basic resources.  The need for housing is extreme and here at Camplify, we are eager to help. That’s why we have established the Camplify Flood Relief Program –  a service where we make it easier for flood victims and local van owners to find and help each other.

About Camplify

Camplify is a  peer-to-peer van sharing platform, which means that we don’t own any vans, and as such, we don’t set the pricing, our van owners do. We normally connect local RV owners with people looking to go on holiday. Now we’re also helping to connect local RV owners with those in need of accommodation through our safe and secure platform.

Want to use your van to help people in need of temporary accommodation?

Due to the high demand for housing, Camplify is asking van owners who are interested in supporting the cause to share their van with people in need.  Camplify is committed to covering the rental insurance cost for any local van owner who comes forward and is willing to hire out their van through the Camplify Flood Program. Therefore, those van owners who offer help can rest easy knowing their van is fully insured for the period it’s on hire.

As a van owner participating in the program, you can choose to donate your van free of charge for a set period, discount your daily rate or delivery fees, or only accept bookings covered by the flood victims’ insurer or by funds flood victims have organised via the NSW government’s flood recovery rental support or other funds. You’ve got the final say on who you hire out to, when and for how long.

How the Camplify Flood Relief Program works

Submit interest

If you wish to put your van(s) forward for this program, please submit your details via the form above.

Suitability assessment

Our team will identify any relief accommodation opportunities best suited to your van.*

Create a listing

All hires will take place via our safe and secure platform.

Get matched

Flood victims will be able to submit a booking request to your van and any hire will be covered by comprehensive hiring insurance to give you peace of mind.**


Long term van hire availability is desired: Keep in mind that your hirer may require the van for longer than initially booked. Assessment and repair of their property may be delayed/not run to schedule. Please be mindful to check in with your hirer to see how they’re going before accepting forward booking requests.

*Whilst we can’t guarantee solutions for all, should a suitable option become available we will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss with you further.
** Camplify will cover the cost of fully comprehensive hiring insurance during any temporary disaster relief booking we help to facilitate through our Flood Relief Program.

For flood victims in need of temporary accommodation

Camplify is a  peer-to-peer van sharing platform, which means that we don’t own any vans, and as such, we don’t set the pricing, our van owners do. We connect local RV owners with people in need of accommodation and provide a safe and secure platform to do so. 

Insurance bookings

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

If you have home insurance and your insurer is organising alternative accommodation, a caravan solution may allow you to stay on your property whilst works are completed. You can discuss this possibility with your Claims Manager who can contact our team or alternatively if you have been directed to source your own accommodation solution you can contact us direct.

Rental support

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Camplify has partnered with the Red Cross and the NSW government to be an eligible accommodation provider under the Government Rental Relief Scheme for flood victims. This means that you can organise for a caravan to be delivered to either your property or to a caravan park via the Camplify platform.

Van availability

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

As we are reliant on van owners coming forward and registering for the program, the supply of caravans may be limited, however, more van owners are putting their vans forward for the program every day, so even if there is nothing available right now, our site will be updated when new vans are onboarded. If you have organised support, you will need to go through our booking process so we can collect your details. Please see below for a full walkthrough of how this process works.

Van pricing

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Van owners participating in the program can choose to discount their daily rate or delivery fees, donate their vans free of charge for a set period or only accept bookings covered by the flood victims’ insurer or by flood victims that have organised and accessed funds via the NSW government’s flood recovery rental support or other funds. Check the individual listings for this information and if you have any questions, submit a booking request to open a direct line of communication with the van owner.

The process

How the Camplify Flood Relief Program works

Sign up

You will need to make a Camplify user. Get in touch with the van owner direct by submitting a booking request to start the process. It’s free and quick to sign up.

Search

Search for vans in your area, this will show you all available vans within 200 km radius of your location. If there’s nothing available, try extending your search as some van owners will deliver vans to you.

Request to book

When submitting a booking request, the flood victim will have a direct line of communication with the van owner where they can discuss matters such as pricing, delivery, location for van placement etc.

Approval/Payment

If the van owner approves the booking, the flood victim is responsible for having sufficient funds as per the agreement with the van owner. The booking is not confirmed until paid.



We’d love to be able to meet every need but the reality is that we are dependent on local van owners coming forward and we can’t guarantee solutions for all. If you can’t find a suitable van option today, please come back and search again as new van owners come forward weekly.

Please remember that the van owner sets their own pricing. Funds for hire can come through government support/house insurance/own funds or per the van owner’s donation.

Camplify will cover the cost of fully comprehensive hiring insurance during any temporary disaster relief booking we help to facilitate through our Flood Relief Program.
