Motorhomes are costly vehicles, particularly when approximately two million private motorhomes in Europe are unused for 48 weeks per year. To offset costs, many owners often consider renting out their vehicles but the lack of suitable motor insurance for rental periods is a major deterrent – most motorhome insurance policies do not cover damage incurred when the vehicle is hired by third party. iptiQ found a way to close this protection gap for Goboony, a peer-to-peer rental platform.
Inadequate insurance, insufficient supply
Our partner Goboony recognized that demand for vehicles exceeded supply, and the lack of rental insurance was an obstacle for vehicle owners. Typically, Motor insurance for motorhomes have restrictions for renting periods, resulting into uncertainty for the owners and reluctance to rent their vehicle. For two years Goboony searched for a suitable insurance solution to offer their community of vehicle owners.
