A deposit of NZ $1000 is required to secure your booking.
The balance of the hire fee must be paid upon collection of the motorhome on the agreed pickup date. Hire costs are to be calculated on a day to day basis (not 24 hour periods).
A security bond must be paid at the commencement of hire. This is fully refundable at the termination of hire, subject to the following:
· No damage has been incurred to the vehicle or any third party property
· No items belonging to the rental company have been lost or damaged
· The hire vehicle is returned in clean condition
· The fuel tank and LPG gas bottles are full
· Toilet and waste water tanks are emptied. A surcharge of $100 per tank is payable if not emptied.
· Any traffic and infringement fines have been paid
Charges will apply if this criteria is not met.
The bond is as follows
Fiat Ducato. NZ $4,000 for drivers over 25 years of age and NZ $5000 for drivers aged 21 - 25 years.
The hirer will be fully liable for replacing or repairing damaged windscreens. The hirer is furthermore liable for puncture repairs or replacement of damaged tyres with the same type and brand. Damage to the underside or roof of any vehicle is subject to owners discretion.
Insurance Excess Reduction Option. Fiat Ducato 4 berths.
For an additional $35.00 (incl gst) per day the standard excess can be reduced to $2,000 or $2,500 for drivers 21-25 years of age.
Cancellations received more than 21 days prior to date of reservation will be refunded less a NZ$150 administration fee. Reservations cancelled within the 7-21 day period incur forfeiture of the NZ$1000 deposit. Within seven days a further charge will apply. Vehicles returned earlier than the agreed contracted date will NOT be eligible for a refund.
Vehicles must be returned on the date, place and time as agreed on the contract. If the motorhome is kept beyond the contractual hire period without authorisation or consultation with the rental company, the contracted daily rate will be doubled for each day the vehicle is overdue.
A current valid international or New Zealand drivers licence or drivers licence from your country of origin is required. Drivers must be over 21 years of age with at least two years driving experience. No special licence is required to drive our motorhomes.
Breakdowns, Accident or Mechanical Failure
Our motorhomes have 24 hour roadside breakdown assistance by telephoning the provided number. In the event of accident or mechanical problems the hirer should contact the rental company as soon as possible. Repairs with a cost of up to NZ$100 may be made without authorisation and will be reimbursed, as long as receipts are available and the hirer was not directly responsible for the damage. Any cost above NZ$100 will require prior approval. No responsibility will be accepted for accommodation charges, meals or out-of-pocket expenses resulting from a breakdown or accident. Due to ever increasing bookings for our motorhomes especially during peak demand periods we may not be able to provide a replacement vehicle. Our liability extends only to a refund of rental charges for any days of loss of vehicle usage caused by a mechanical breakdown or accident.
New Zealand Speed Limits
The laws in this country restrict open road speeds. The motorhomes can travel legally at 100km/h but we suggest 90km/h. Our countryside varies from rugged to serene and most roads are two way and windy, the scenery is amazing so you will not want to rush by and miss the fantastic sights.
Our motorhomes can only be driven on sealed roads. No motorhome is to be taken on Skippers Canyon Road (Queenstown), Ninety Mile Beach (Northland), Ball Hutt Road (Aoraki Mt Cook) and/or north of Colville Township (Coromandel Peninsula).
Environmentally Friendly Motorhomes
We take pride in the presentation of our motorhomes and will provide you with a clean and sanitised vehicle. To this end we kindly ask that you do not smoke in our motorhomes and we do not allow pets to be taken on board. Candles in any form are extremely dangerous and are prohibited.
If, in the unlikely event, the Scenic NZ Motorhome you have booked is not available, we reserve the right to substitute a comparable vehicle at no extra cost in some circumstances. This shall not constitute a breach of contract and does not entitle the hirer to any refund. Should this replacement not be possible, we will refund each full day of the hire that is lost.
