Membership Extensions due to COVID-19

We've been recommending for a few weeks now that our members not travel unless necessary. That means we're telling people not to use the product they've paid for, and that doesn't sound fair to us. Here's what we're doing about it.

For those with active guest privilege subscriptions

If you have or had an active membership as of 11pm ET on Thursday, April 30th, you will find that your membership has been extended by an extra 3 months. You'll be able to see a redeemed "3 month extension during COVID-19" credit in your previously redeemed subscription credit list, and your expiry date on the subscription details page will reflect this 3-month extension.

For those whose subscriptions have expired recently

If your subscription has expired in the last 60 days (since March 1st), then you may have lost your grandfathered subscription rate (note that if you have a host location listed, you will still have that rate locked in). We understand that you may have chosen not to renew at this time for obvious reasons, but we don't think you should be punished and lose your rate because of it. So we've made a change so you can still renew at your original grandfathered rate until July 1st. We'll send out a reminder just before that date, in hopes that travel will once again be on the horizon, and you can renew at your old locked-in rate and keep it going forward.

In the meantime...

While we will continue to advise only essential travel, we recognize that it will very much depend on your area and the status of the epidemic there as to what is reasonable. As some areas begin to loosen restrictions, it will be up to our members to determine if they think recreational travel is safe and responsible. We think that camping in general is a very low-risk activity, where it's quite easy to keep social distancing guidelines, so we're cautiously optimistic that many of us will be able to go RVing sometime soon.

Boondockers Welcome Logo

Boondockers Welcome is a community of RVers that provide overnight stays with each other for free while traveling through an area. We help RVers to travel more economically and find options when campgrounds may be full. It’s a great and safe way to meet fellow RVers or for people curious about the RV lifestyle to learn from members, while also providing a safe place to park for one night or up to five nights.

    Thank you for the extension. This is an issue that may not be considered until we're all able to travel again, and then the membership comes due. Thanks for being proactive!

    We're glad it is helpful! We just felt like it was the right thing to do as we love our members and appreciate their support.

    You folks ROCK! Thanks so much for such a generous offer. Our setting here in San Diego has improved dramatically for the better. The city has made our street a cul-de-sac and suddenly it has become very quiet! I will be updating our description shortly. Thanks for keeping our members safe. Cristi Moyer
