OLPRO, a leading UK retailer of tents and camping equipment, is encouraging holidaymakers to use its environmentally-friendly ‘Loan & Go’ rental service and avoid plastic wastage. The technology behind this idea was made possible through a partnership with Fat Llama, the UK’s largest rental marketplace.

OLPRO’s new ‘Loan & Go’ service allows customers to borrow any one of OLPRO’s tents or awnings, which can accommodate up to eight people. The tents are available for borrowing in blocks of three days and areloaned out via the Worcester-based company’s website.

Rented products will arrive with the customer two days ahead of the scheduled rental period and the customers are then expected to return the product with the included returns tag via Parcelforce within 1 day of the end of their rental period.

Daniel Walton, Founder of OLPRO, said: “We’ve launched our new rental service to help our customers be more green and give them a cheaper option of borrowing a high-quality, comfortable tent.”

“We expect that as the recognised importance of physical and mental wellbeing continues to grow, more people will start to invest in outdoor leisure and camping equipment. Camping is already growing as a popular mainstream option for holiday accommodation throughout the continent and reports show that people in Europe already spend five days a year camping.”
