Local Mom Stacey Banfield Brings BabyQuip to Aruba, Helping Families on Vacation “Pack Light & Travel Happy”
Santa Fe, NM (November 7, 2023) – BabyQuip, the leading global baby gear rental service for traveling families, has arrived in Aruba just in time for the holiday travel season. Now serving over 15 countries worldwide, BabyQuip aims to ensure that families booking popular travel destinations like Aruba have effortless access to clean and safe baby gear from today’s most coveted and trusted brands.
Lifelong Aruba resident and mom Stacey Banfield is boosting BabyQuip’s availability across the island as a Quality Provider. BabyQuip’s Quality Provider community has amassed nearly 2,000 independent contractors globally who are building their own baby gear rental businesses through the platform’s managed marketplace. In just one month, Banfield has contributed to BabyQuip’s growth in Aruba as one of the Caribbean’s most engaged locations.
“As a mom, I understand the frustration and extra expenses of bringing your own baby gear on vacation, and how not having all the essentials can make or break your trip,” said Banfield. “I’m excited to help other families enjoy their Aruba vacations while building my own business through BabyQuip.”
Like all BabyQuip destinations, customers traveling to Aruba can reserve strollers, car seats, cribs, toys, and other essentials using BabyQuip’s website or app, and have them delivered anywhere on the island. Rentals can also be booked through official travel agency partners such as Travelmation, one of the country’s top agencies for Sandals & Beaches and many other all inclusive and Caribbean brands.
For added convenience and peace of mind, customers can add Quip Trip Protection. This optional program protects reservation changes and cancellations due to illness, weather events, airline issues, and other travel disruptions, giving parents even more flexibility and peace of mind.
“BabyQuip’s accelerated growth is a testament to our value in the areas of family travel and entrepreneurship, and we are excited to support Aruba’s tourism and business sectors with our platform,” said Fran Maier, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of BabyQuip. “We will continue to expand with new destinations and partnerships to unburden families with easy, affordable access to clean and safe baby gear, so they can enjoy their vacations with more comfort and convenience, and less stress.”
