Are pets allowed?
Taking pets is only permitted by prior arrangement and written confirmation from the rental company. Transporting an animal can lead to increased repair and/or cleaning costs!
How much is the security deposit?
Without exception, the security deposit is €500 for the “Free Spirit” Camper, per rental. We do not accept cheques; only cash or successful bank transfer to our account are accepted.
What are the rental terms?
Our rental terms are identical to the terms and conditions on our website. They comply with legal guidelines and are comparable with the terms and conditions of all major international car rental companies.
How are the campers insured?
The campers are insured in accordance with the applicable insurance conditions as follows: Liability insurance: property and financial damages up to € 40 million; injury for each injured person max. € 3 million.
We do not provide fully comprehensive or partial coverage. All our vehicles are insured with the standard motor third party liability insurance. Fully comprehensive or partial coverage for rental vehicles is outrageously expensive and only worth it for new cars. As the deductible for fully comprehensive coverage is in general 1000€ it does not make sense for our cars. Offering this kind of service would nearly double our prices. We appreciate your understanding.
Is smoking permitted in the campers?
No, all our campers are non-smoking vehicles.
How about cleaning the camper?
The final cleaning of the camper is not included in the price. You can book an external service if you do not want to do the cleaning yourself. Please note that for the camper “Free Spirit”, an optional extra costs (40€) will be charged for cleaning the interior and exterior, and a mandatory cost (30€) for the cleaning through high-temperature cleaning programs of all bedding, bathroom linen and kitchen utensils
