Camping Renaissance in Italy

Share Article

The days of cleaning duties, curfews and crowded dormitory rooms are over for travellers/backpackers staying in Italian Hostels. Over the past four years a quiet revolution has swept the European ackpacking circuit with the advent of the hostel/camping village.

Plus combines all the cool things in a backpacker’s hostel with those of a 5 star modern camping village. The hostels/camping villages provide unparalleled backpacker facilities in one destination including swimming pools, bars, restaurants, wellness centres, clubs and internet facilities.

Customers have a choice of either staying in hard top accommodation with their own ensuite or bringing their own tent. There is a maximum of 3 customers to any room. Most rooms have air-conditioning to cool the rooms in the peak of an Italian summer.

Onsite 24hr security and a team of professional cleaners ensure that travellers have a clean safe and fun experience while staying at a Plus destination.

Plus has partnered with some of the most well known campgrounds in Italy to enable customers to find a Plus branded property in the most sought after destinations in Italy. “In the peak of summer all of the major destinations in Italy are full to overflowing, the Plus brand allows our customers access to good quality budget accommodation in destinations such as Sorrento, Rome, Florence and Venice.” said Grant Currie, Plus Marketing Director

Currently Plus is in the process of introducing several innovative products to their customers. The first; The Plus Pass enables customers to prepay their accommodation before they leave home, whilst at the same time having the flexibility to book their accommodation at home or when in Europe. The Pass allows the customer to book beds, manage their pass, cancel nights and buy additional nights while at the same time giving the customer discounts at selected locations.

The second innovation is Plus Points. Plus Points is a loyalty cards system where after a customer stays ten nights and collects ten stamps they are given a plus voucher which entitles the customer to a free night which is redeemable at any Plus destination.
