Deal alert: Save 10% on your next RV rental

Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points (on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year). Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Fortunately for you, Outdoorsy is offering a 10% nightly rate discount on rentals just for Earth Day. As the #1 trusted marketplace for RV rental and outdoor travel, you can book your summer adventure and save some cash while you’re at it.

Whether you’re looking to visit a national park or want a quick weekend getaway, the options are endless. You can search for an RV virtually anywhere through Outdoorsy. Since renting an RV (or any other motorhome) can be quite costly, the savings can definitely add up — especially if you’re looking to book a lengthy trip.
And with the recent car rental apocalypse, both our readers and TPG staffers have reported not being able to find a rental car in popular vacation destinations (think Florida or near any major national parks). Booking an RV in advance can guarantee you both accommodations and a mode of transportation, so you’ll want to snag this deal while you can.
The discount in action
Until April 30th, use the promo code “EARTHDAY” at checkout to save 10% on nightly rates. I found this sweet luxury RV that sleeps four in Las Vegas, with availability right around Memorial Day.
For $399 per day, booking for multiple nights (or even weeks on end) can get pricey. For a five-night rental, I was able to save $200 thanks to the Earth Day discount.
There doesn’t seem to be many limitations to this discount — so long as you book your rental by the end of April.
If this is your first time renting an RV, this might be a great opportunity to try it this summer. TPG’s Director of Travel Content Summer Hull rented her first RV through Outdoorsy and enjoyed some classic family fun through this experience.
Finally, be sure to use the right credit card to maximize points and miles on your summer road trip. You’ll want to use a card that can reward you for not only rental costs, but gas and dining while you’re on the road.
