How it Works


thl is one of the world’s leading independent travel companies. They are the largest provider of campervan holidays in Australia, New Zealand & USA. 

Tourism impacts on many people in a variety of ways; most are positive, some less so. 

To be a sustainable and responsible business, thl is working to build on the good they are doing. As part of this they are looking to support community-initiative projects that reflect responsible tourism and environmental stewardship.

The Ignite Good Challenge is inspired by the open road and thirst for meaningful experiences and community connection which is core to thl and energises their crew and customers. 

This is an exclusive opportunity and 3 projects will be selected. If you’ve got an Australian-based project which leverages travel and outdoor experiences to benefit people and the planet, applications are due at midnight AEST March 10.

Selected Projects receive:

  • $5,000 seed funding from  thl   
  • Crowdfunding coaching and mentorship from StartSomeGood on pitching and sharing your story
  • Promotional support for your crowdfunding campaign to raise another $5,000-$10,000.

Register your interest below for application instructions.

The Ignite Good Challenge

thl is the largest provider of holiday vehicles for rent and sale globally. In Australia and New Zealand we operate under the maui, Britz and Mighty rentals brands, and the RV Sales brands - RV Sales Centre and RV Super Centre.
Collaboration and partnerships are at the heart of what we do, so we're excited to partner with StartSomeGood to run The Ignite Good Challenge. Without the support of the wider industry in every country where we operate, we could not create unforgettable holidays for our customers. We firmly believe that collaboration is the only way forward - especially with the more complex issues we face as an industry.  As one of the larger tourism operators, it's incumbent on us to take an industry-leading role; it's something we take very seriously.
