The long-awaited summer travel season has arrived, but not everyone has spare money set aside for the vacation of their dreams. To help those who may struggle with affording a summer vacation, Under Canvas recently offered a special “pay-what-you-can” promotion for their glamping sites at eight locations around the country.


Normal rates for Under Canvas glamping sites can cost from $149 for a king-sized bed and access to bathroom facilities to up to $400 per night for suites with private ensuite bathrooms inside the tents. But from mid-May to June 4, vacationers were able to suggest a price for a stay at one of the luxury glamping locations.


To apply for the promotion, guests were asked to indicate their preferred location, the number of people who would be joining them for the stay, their annual income and the price they would be willing to pay in order to stay in one of the glamping tents. They also are asked to submit a brief explanation of why they would like to be considered for the experience.


Under Canvas has eight luxury glamping sites, all located near popular national parks: Zion, Glacier, Grand Canyon, Moab, Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, Great Smoky Mountains and Tucson.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
