Planning to go camping with a ReachNow? We rounded up all our pro-tips for you so that you have everything you need to sit back, relax and enjoy the wild.
Pro tip #1: Pack your Member Key card
Your Member Key card acts as your key to the car for any time that you may not be able to access your app or cell service. You can use the Member Key card to start a rental, lock-and-unlock a car, and end your trip. Simply swipe your card over the reader located in the corner of the driver’s side window and you’re good to go. You’ll want this at the top of your packing list - especially if you’re getting off the grid. Learn more about getting one here if you don’t have one yet.

Pro tip #3: Find a BMW model vehicle for free State Park entry
We want you to get wild. In partnership with the Washington and Oregon State Parks Foundations, we have outfitted all BMW 3-Series and X1 SAVs with state park passes for entry on us this summer. Find any of the BMW models listed and double check for a pass, then hit the road and find your wild!
Pro tip #4 Get a free tank of gas
If you’re heading out of town, remember that one tank of gas is on us. Yeah, seriously — you read that right! We’ll cover one full tank of gas for your rental. It’s pretty simple — if you stop to fill up the tank while you’re out, keep your receipt and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll get a reimbursement check from us within the month. Why wouldn’t you do that?! Remember, we’ll happily cover one tank of gas, but only one tank. So be sure to keep your receipt and explore a little more this summer.
Pro tip #5 Leave no trace
It's important when spending time in the wilderness to follow the Leave No Trace principle as preserving the natural environment is critical for both the wildlife and preservation of the area. Make sure to prioritize having as little impact as possible whenever camping so future generations can enjoy our wilderness areas. This means remembering to bring a trash bag for your campsite, not leaving garbage in the campfire ring, and packing out all trash when you hike, including toilet paper, orange peels, and gum. This rule of thumb also applies to your ReachNow vehicle. Be sure that all belongings, trash and any items brought with you are removed from the vehicle when you’re finished with it.
