Space in My Tent app ensures campers wake up happy
Apr 1 2012 Posted by Lewis Shields
Pitchup.com’s new Space in My Tent app offers camping and caravanning enthusiasts the opportunity to open their tents, and their hearts, to romantic possibility, whilst enjoying the great outdoors.
The app, available on iPhone and Android, allows users to upload an image and provide information about themselves before answering questions that will ensure compatible slumber, such as:
- Size of tent pole
- Thickness of fly sheet
- Tog rating
Users are then free to scan matching nearby listings on the GPS enabled app to find other available campers looking to wake up happy.
The app is initially launching in an invite-only "beta" version and will be trialled at 69 ‘Passion Pitches’ across the country before being rolled out more widely. A gay version of the app, 'Happy Campers', is also planned to launch in 2013.
Dan Yates, Managing Director, Pitchup.com says, "One of the major flaws of camping is the lack of night-time entertainment. Once the campfire goes out, many campers find themselves at a loss for what to do. Our ‘Space in My Tent’ app brings people together to enjoy the great outdoors as nature intended."
Winner of the Travel Journalists’ Award for Best UK Travel Website of the Year at the British Travel Press Awards 2011 and Best Travel Information Site at the 2010 Travolution awards, Pitchup.com is the most comprehensive website in the camping and caravanning sector. Launched in July 2009, the site features 5,000 campsites and holiday parks in the UK and Ireland, including many in hard-to-find locations. The website enables users to search and book using more than 80 search criteria to fine-tune their holiday requirements, and features mapping technology to make getting there simple too. The site also lists accommodation near nine National Parks, hundreds of beaches, 17 World Heritage Sites and the main UK festivals and can view nearby Good Pub Guide pubs, National Trust properties and National Cycle Network routes. Website owners can also add custom Pitchup.com listings to their site.
