New park says ‘Pay what you like’

A caravan park in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt has found an innovative way to attract guests by inviting them to pay what they like.

The council-owned Kulin Caravan Park has done away with the traditional nightly rate accommodation model and instead encouraged guests to “contribute an amount which they feel their stay and experience is worth, based on their own financial ability”. 

The ‘You Set the Price’ initiative is said to be based on the values of ‘trust, generosity and respect’, and will run for a two year trial period.

Guests can set the price for up to five consecutive nights. Nights over and above are charged at a nightly rate set by council. 

The RV friendly town recently installed a Discovery Zone with free 72-hour RV parking and dump facilities.
