Insurance - Standard Rates:

Damage to the United Campervans vehicle or third party property. Public Liability up to $5,000,000

  • A Bond / Excess of $5000 must be paid on collection of the campervan or motorhome. The hirer will be responsible for the first $5000 of any costs incurred due to damage to the hired vehicle or third party property.
  • The hirer will be fully liable for the repair or replacement of damaged windscreens and tyres.
  • This Bond / Excess may be paid by cash, travellers cheques or credit card. United Vehicle Rentals Ltd accepts Visa and Mastercard. If a credit card is used as the method of payment then $5000 will immediately be debited from the account. United Campervans will not be responsible for any losses resulting from bank charges, lost interest or currency fluctuations.
  • Payment of the $5,000 Bond is per incident and should damage be incurred to the hired vehicle or third party property a further Bond payment will be required.
  • The Bond is fully refundable on return of the vehicle to the agreed drop off depot, on the due drop off date, in a reasonably clean undamaged condition, with no damage incurred to third party property, and with a
    full tank of fuel and empty toilet cassette and waste water tank.
  • The Bond is fully refundable on return of the vehicle to the agreed drop off depot, on the due drop off date, in a reasonably clean undamaged condition, with no damage incurred to third party property, and with a full tank of fuel and empty toilet cassette and waste water tank.


United Campervans offers two options to either reduce or waive this standard Bond / Excess of NZD $5000 (~5000~):

CDW OPTION 1

Payment of NZD $20 (~20~) per day (maximum $1,200 for any one hire) at the commencement of the hire will reduce the Bond / Excess to $1,200 , $2,400 for hirers under the age of 25 years.

  • The hirer will be responsible for the first $1,200 , ($2,400 for hirers under the age of 25 years) of any costs incurred due to damage to the hired vehicle or third party property.
  • The hirer will be fully liable for the repair or replacement of damaged windscreens.
  • If a credit card is used as the method of payment then details will be taken by United Rentals Ltd and held on file.. No amount will be debited against the credit card on pick up. However, in the event of an accident, the full bond of $1,200 , ( $2,400 for hirers under the age of 25 years), will be uplifted immediately and any balance refunded only after full and final costs have been established and deducted. As the Bond is applicable per incident further credit card details will be taken for a new $1,200 Bond.
  • No deductions will be made against this credit card provided the vehicle is returned to the agreed drop off depot, on the due drop off date, in a reasonably clean condition, with no damage incurred to the hire vehicle or third party property, with a full tank of fuel and with an empty toilet cassette and waste water tank.

CDW OPTION 2

Payment of $32 per day (Maximum $1,920 for any one hire) or $44 per day for hirers under teh age of 25 years (Maximum $2,460 for any one hire) will completely waive the Bond / Excess.

  • The hirer will not be responsible for any costs incurred due to damage to the hired vehicle or third party property, or for the repair or replacement of damaged windscreens, subject to the Insurance Exclusions and provided the hirer has complied with all Policy Conditions.

Insurance - All Inclusive Rates:
