Explaining the concept, Shashin Shah, Director, Yogi Auto Care Private Limited, said, “Overlanders are among the early entrants in the luxury campervan market in Gujarat. The younger generation of today is well-travelled and well-informed and therefore, their aspirations are to explore the lesser known, lesser frequented places when it comes to travelling. Road Trips and hiking and camping trips are a hit among youngsters. We aim to add a touch of elegance and luxury to camping and road trips through the campervan services.”
Recently, the Government of Gujarat too announced special incentives and infrastructure development for promoting Caravan Tourism in Gujarat.
“Overlanders campervan will be available on rentals beginning Rs 27,000/- +GST, which will include fuel, maintenance, and driver’s costs too. The campervan is ideal for four to six persons for multi-day/ single day trips. Our teams will also curate specialised tour packages for travellers, giving them an exclusive travel experience.” Shah further said.

Our cumulative investment after this project will be around Rs 3 crore. With this, we aim to command at least 50% of the market share in Gujarat in the caravan tourism rental segment, which at present, is largely dependent on players from outside the state.” said Shah.
