Terms and Conditions

As a family run business, we have tried to keep the terms and conditions as simple as possible. Whilst  certain terms and conditions are necessary for both parties, overall we try to maintain an approach of common sense and courtesy between ourselves and the customer. If you have any concerns or queries regarding the terms and conditions, please feel free to contact us. Many thanks.

  1. The Motorhome may only be driven by the persons named on the Hire Agreement, providing they are in possession of a current valid driver’s licence (valid for driving in New Zealand), and provided they are 25 years of age or over (named drivers under the age of 25 are subject to an additional insurance excess).
  2. The Bond ($1,500) paid by the Hirer to the Owner will be held by the Owner as security for the return of the Motorhome in a complete, undamaged, reasonably clean condition; and as security for the payment of any sums (including insurance excess, fines and late return liability) owed by the Hirer to the Owner.
  3. The Motorhome must be returned:-
    1. with a full tank of fuel (as it will be provided to you at the beginning of the Hire).  Should the Motorhome require oil or LPG gas during the Hire, please keep the receipts for a full refund;
    2. with the toilet waste and grey waste tanks empty.

    2. use care and be mindful of the law when handling and parking the Motorhome.
    3. leave the Motorhome securely locked when unattended.

If the driver dies from injuries received in an Accident, the proportion of alcohol in any blood sample taken from the body of the deceased person will be assumed to be the same proportion which was in the blood at the time of the accident.

  9. If the Motorhome requires repair through accident or breakdown, or is involved in any accident, the Hirer shall advise the Owner of the full circumstances immediately. The Hirer shall not arrange or undertake any repairs or salvage without the authority of the Owner except to the extent that the repairs are necessary to prevent further damage to the Motorhome or to other property or persons.
  10. Please return the Motorhome on (or before) the agreed time at the agreed drop-off place; or contact the Owner should you wish to request a change in the time or place. The Hirer will be responsible for any costs due to late return or return to any other place not previously agreed.
