How your next RV trip could benefit healthcare heroes

May 26 2020, 7:03 pm

As various restrictions and safety measures begin to lift, many people are itching to find a way to get out and travel. And although international travel may not be in the cards quite yet, there are still creative ways for people to venture out while adhering to health recommendations.

Domestic travel is a convenient and straightforward solution to get back out there while exploring areas that you may not otherwise have considered, and one of the most comfortable and practical ways to do so is in an RV.

That’s right. Cruising around in an RV isn’t just an activity for vagabonds and retirees anymore. Anyone can indulge in the nomadic lifestyle of choosing where to go and when in these ready-to-go vacation homes.

Imagine being able to travel on your own terms while having the added luxury of everyday amenities, like a bed and your own bathroom, that you hold so dear. When travelling in an RV, you can take the comforts of home along for the ride, literally.

Not only that, but you can indulge in the breathtaking scenery of various locations without having to set foot in an airport. Did we mention that RVs are perfect for physical distancing?

Escape the hecticness of life by getting back to nature and appreciating the great outdoors. And if you venture to a particular destination but find that it’s a bit too crowded for your liking, there is an easy and instantaneous fix: pack up and drive off.

Of course, it is important to remain aware of the advice of the areas that you are visiting or travelling through, as rules may vary. Still, travelling in an RV provides an advantage in having your own space while being combined with the unbridled freedom and excitement that comes with setting out on the open road.

What if we told you that you could enjoy the refreshing and unfiltered RV travel experience while also giving back to healthcare heroes? It’s a win-win situation.

The world’s largest RV rental and outdoor experience company, Outdoorsy, is providing free road trips to healthcare heroes across North America to supply them with a relaxing and recuperating experience “once the peak of the pandemic is behind us.”

For any RV trip booked from now until June 30, 2020, Outdoorsy is matching bookings with free road trip nights donated to deserving healthcare workers. Those receiving the free nights will be selected from an “open-to-the-public nomination process” to enter to win a three-day, two-night RV rental.

Of course, these healthcare heroes are deserving of a much-needed break, and the fact that your getaway could provide them with one is a bonus.

As we begin to toy with the idea of planning trips, an epic wilderness escape presents a unique and local alternative to jet setting away. What better way to unwind, relax, and explore than to stay local and get back to nature and set out either with a determined or undetermined destination. Either way, you’re sure to make long-lasting memories that are all the more special because they took place right in your own backyard.

Note: As border closures and travel restrictions begin to lift, health authorities are reminding individuals to monitor themselves for any signs of COVID-19. If you are feeling unwell, it is recommended you stay at home. If you do decide to travel, follow the health and safety precautions and protocols outlined by the departure and arrival locations you will be travelling to/from.
