Why Millennials Are Turning To RV Rentals

Oct 31st 2019

It’s no secret that millennials love to travel. We’re blessed in the fact that we can pretty much work from anywhere, as long as there is WiFi. With social media more or less telling us everyone else we know is travelling, the spark to experience our own country has never been brighter.

However, flight prices to fly across the country are higher than ever. And it’s been proven that it’s cheaper to fly internationally than it is to fly around Canada and us millennials are always looking for ways to save money. That’s why we're turning to RV rentals!

Why are millennials renting RVs?

When people think of RVs, they automatically think about the cost of them. Back in the day, it was normal to buy an RV instead of renting one. However, renting other peoples homes for just a weekend, renting a bigger car to drive a far distance, as well as renting an RV has become all the craze in the past few years.

Millennials crave a different experience that they can talk about later, and renting something unknown is definitely a new experience. Millennials are good with their money, but we also like to spend it on adventures.

Renting an RV for the first, second and third time is always a new and fun adventure no matter who you go with. Whether it’s travelling solo in an RV, with friends, or going with family who are retired, it makes you want to do it over and over again.

It’s a fun process to pick out where you’re going to go on your trip, look for RVs to rent, and then actually make a solid plan. With flights, whether you’re riding solo or with a big group, it’s a pain to deal with cancellation fees. With RVs, you can bet on the trip being successful every time.

How are millennials renting RVs?

While most people think that millennials don’t have money, that’s not true. When it comes to travel expenses, we always seem to find a way to make it happen. The older we get, the more we start saving for things we love and that bring us joy, and travelling is one of those things.

A lot of people these days are putting a small percentage of their pay into a savings account for things like travel, and since it costs a pretty penny to buy an RV, renting one is the perfect choice. Renting just makes sense for millennials, since they share their time between a million different activities.

RVezy was created so it can be easy to rent an RV for a weekend, week, or however long you need it and for however many people you’d like! RVs have a ton of myths surrounding them, especially that only retired people drive RVs. That’s simply not true, and millennials are getting more use out of them the older they get.

Why it’s the best way to travel in 2018!

In 2018, it seems like more people want a less rigid lifestyle. While life is still about going after what you want, it’s equally important to take time to relax and be in nature. The stress of trying to make your plane in time, packing everything for a set deadline, and even booking multiple hotels or rooms can be exhausting. Trips should be fun, not tiring!

Everything is done online these days and millennials know their way around the internet, that’s no secret. Being able to rent an RV like you would a hotel room, with no hidden fees, is so simple and stress free.

It’s been said that millennials revived the RV world, as sales were up almost 70% in 2017. Millennials are growing up, and they essentially make the trends. As much as we like to stay inside and watch Netflix, a huge majority of millennials grew up by playing outside, camping with their families, and taking road trips.

It just makes sense that we would want to keep doing what our parents taught us, and grow with the trends. It also is amazing how accommodating RVs are, as you can bring any pets with you if it’s allowed on that particular RV.

If you’re looking for a relaxed, adventurous trip that will give you memories for years to come, then an RV is the best experience for you. Since millennials are buying trucks and SUVs more and more, it’s great if you want a smaller RV that you can hook up to the back for some extra room.

Remember that picking out the perfect RV for you just depends on what you need! There are a ton of options, however, you can choose from small ones that you hook up to the back of your car, to big RVs that can fit 10 people! Of course it depends on the type of trip you’re taking, but no matter what RVezy has exactly what you need.
