One Way Rental Fee
One-way rentals are available between depot locations. A one way rental fee of AUD $350 is charged for rentals 20 days or less per segment. Multiple rentals are treated as separate rentals under the one way fee and minimum rental period conditions. The fee is waived when all inclusive ‘platinum’ cover is taken.

Remote Location Fee
A surcharge of AUD $750 applies to vehicles picked up or dropped off in Broome. This is in addition to the one way fee if applicable.

Multiple Rentals - Minimum of 7 days
Multiple rentals can be combined to qualify for a longer term rental rate. Australia and New Zealand rentals, as well as multiple rentals within one country, can be combined to qualify if travel is within a 12 month period. If the drop off and pick up of a vehicle occurs on the same day then each day will be charged per respective vehicle. Multiple rentals are treated as separate rentals under the one-way and minimum rental period conditions.

Standard Excess Insurance Cover
All KEA vehicles come with comprehensive insurance cover. A bond of AUD $7,500 is taken to cover the excess in the event of any damage to our vehicle. The hirer will also be fully liable for demurrage - the daily rental rate for the period the vehicle is off fleet for accident repairs (max 14 days) - and for replacing or repairing damaged windscreens and tyres. Overhead and under-body damage on the rented vehicle is not covered. The bond can be paid by cash, traveller's cheques or credit card (see paragraph “Important: Bond Payments By Credit Card”). The bond is fully refundable on return of the KEA vehicle to the agreed location, on the agreed date in clean condition with no damage incurred to the vehicle, with a full tank of fuel, the toilet cassette and waste water tank emptied and no equipment lost or damaged.

Important: Bond Payments By Credit Card

If the hirer does not choose to purchase an Excess Reduction option from KEA Campers, a bond of AUD $7,500 is taken. This bond is deducted from the customer’s credit card when they pick up their KEA vehicle. We only accept Visa, MasterCard, AMEX and Diners Club. Visa and Master Card will incur an additional surcharge of 2.0 % on any transaction, AMEX and Diners Club 5.0 % on any transaction. When the vehicle is returned to KEA undamaged and no third party damage occurred, the excess is refunded. Like other currencies, the AU Dollar does fluctuate, sometimes by up to 3 or 4 cents in a period of only 3-5 weeks. Fluctuating exchange rates, the difference between buy and sell rates charged by banks as well as bank fees, may result in the amount refunded being different. KEA Campers is not liable for currency variations or bank transaction fees which may be payable, depending on the credit card provider.

KEA Campers offers the following options to reduce or waive the Standard Excess:

Excess Reduction 1 (Bronze Cover)
Excess Reduction 1 at AUD $28 (AUD $35 for 4WD vehicle) per day will reduce the excess for any damage to the vehicle to a maximum of AUD $2,000. The hirer, however, will be fully liable for demurrage - the daily rental rate for the period the vehicle is off fleet for accident repairs (max 14 days) - and for replacing or repairing damaged windscreens and tyres. Overhead and under-body damage on the rented vehicle is not covered. A bond of AUD $2,000 is payable at the time of pick up and can be paid by cash, traveller's cheques or credit card: a manual imprint of the credit card will be taken. The bond is fully refundable on return of the KEA vehicle to the agreed location, on the agreed date in clean condition with no damage incurred to the vehicle, with a full tank of fuel, the toilet cassette and waste water tank emptied and no equipment lost or damaged. The total insurance charge is limited to a maximum of 50 days or AUD $1,400 (AUD $1,750 for 4WD).

Excess Reduction 2 (Silver Cover)
Excess Reduction 2 at AUD $38 (AUD $45 for 4WD vehicle) per day will waive the excess for any vehicle damage and the cost of replacing or repairing windscreens and tyres. Overhead and under-body as well as single accident damage on the rented vehicle are also included. A bond of AUD $500 is payable at the time of pick up. The bond is fully refundable on return of the KEA vehicle to the agreed location, on the agreed date in clean condition with no damage incurred to the vehicle, with a full tank of fuel, the toilet cassette and waste water tank emptied and no equipment lost or damaged. The total insurance charge is limited to a maximum of 50 days or AUD $1,900 (AUD $2,250 for 4WD).

Change of Vehicle
If, for reasons beyond our control, the reserved vehicle is not available, we reserve the right to substitute a comparable or superior vehicle at no extra cost to the client. This shall not constitute a breach of contract and does not entitle the renter to any form of refund.

Vehicle Category Downgrade / Upgrade
Vehicles cannot be requested by model, mileage or age, only by vehicle category*. Should the hirer decide to take a lesser category vehicle than booked within 14 days of pick up or during the rental, no refund will be paid. In the case of an upgrade the rate difference is payable. *Some features may vary between models.

Licence - Minimum Age – Additional Drivers
A valid full (non-provisional) national drivers licence is required. Non-English language national drivers licences must be presented in conjunction with an official translation or valid international drivers licence. The minimum age is 21 years – max. 85 years. Additional drivers must meet all KEA rental requirements, be at the depot at time of vehicle pickup and sign the rental contract.

Travel Restrictions
Two-wheel drive vehicles can only be driven on sealed/bitumen roads or well maintained access roads of less than one (1) kilometre long to recognised campgrounds or national parks. Four-wheel drive vehicles cannot be driven on any islands in Queensland (including Fraser Island, Moreton Island, North Stradbroke Island) but can be driven on the following recognised, unsealed tracks with the express permission of KEA: Cape York between May and December, Simpson Desert, Gunbarrel Highway, Oodnadatta Track, Birdsville Track, Warburton Road, Tanami Track & Gibb River Road. KEA does not allow any vehicle contact with salt water, including river crossings. KEA reserves the right at its sole discretion to restrict vehicle movements in certain areas due to adverse road or weather conditions.

Smoking and Animal Restrictions
Smoking in KEA vehicles is strictly prohibited, and offenders will be charged a fume removal fee of AUD $500. Animals are also not permitted in any KEA vehicle and the same cleaning fee will apply.

Limit of Liability
If, for reasons beyond our control, no vehicle is available to the hirer, KEA’s liability is limited to a refund of the hire charge in full. In the case of mechanical failure (unless caused by the hirer), KEA’s liability will be limited to the hire charge for the remainder of the hire period.

Repairs
Repairs of up to AUD $100 may be effected without authorisation and will be reimbursed. Amounts above AU $100 require approval from KEA on-road assistance.

Traffic Infringements
The hirer is liable for all fines and penalties in relation to the driver's use of the vehicle or the vehicle itself incurred during the rental period plus an administration fee of AU$ 75 for each speeding and AU$ 25 for each parking or toll-road infringement that has been redirected by KEA to the hirer.

Responsibilities of the Hirer
The hirer is at all times fully liable for

  • 1. Any damage to the KEA Campers vehicle or third party property if the terms of the rental contract are breached.
  • 2. Damage caused by careless, wilful or reckless driving.
  • 3. Damage is caused by driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • 4. Damage caused due to single vehicle roll over.
  • 5. Damage caused by driving on restricted roads.
  • 6. Damage to or loss of any personal belongings.
  • 7. Damage caused by the use of incorrect or contaminated fuel.
  • 8. Damage caused by part or total water submersion or salt water.

In case of any damage to the KEA vehicle or third party property a second bond will be collected to cover the excess for any subsequent damage. In the instances of a manual vehicle being hired, the driver must be a competent and experienced operator of manual vehicles.

Travel Insurance
We strongly recommend that renters ensure they take out the highest level of Travel Insurance.

Vehicle Return
All vehicles must be returned to the agreed location, on the agreed date in clean condition with no damage incurred to the KEA vehicle or third party property, with the toilet cassette and waste water tank emptied and no equipment lost or damaged. A fee of AUD $250 will be charged if the toilet cassette is not emptied or the vehicle is not returned in a reasonable clean condition.

Vehicles must be returned with a full fuel tank. Refuelling at our depot will be charged at AUD $3 per litre of fuel plus a handling fee of AUD $25.

First Aid Kit
A comprehensive high quality First Aid Kit is supplied in each vehicle. If the seal is broken or the kit is not returned, a fee of AUD $50 is charged at the time of vehicle drop off.
