Ontario-based RVezy.com, a peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace, announced the introduction of a sharing economy insurance policy in Nova Scotia. According to a press release, the initiative will be launching in August of 2016.
RVezy co-founder Michael McNaught noted, “The beauty and culture of our maritime provinces is a bucket list destination for so many Canadians and international tourists. Nova Scotia has always been at the top of our list for making RV travel more accessible to travelers.”
Since launching in 2016, RVezy, with the assistance of AON Insurance, has grown the peer-to-peer RV rental insurance coverage in Canada. Previously, insurance coverage for motorhomes had been restricted to coaches registered in either Ontario, Quebec or Alberta.
“To the thousands of motorhome owners in Nova Scotia, they are now provided the opportunity to earn an income by renting their motorhome with full insurance coverage to aspiring vacationers,” said McNaught.
“I spent time in my youth working in a fishing village in Nova Scotia and fell in love with the East Coast lifestyle. The beauty of the landscape, diversity of wildlife and incredibly welcoming locals should be experienced by all Canadian travelers” added McNaught.
