backpacker sleepervans - new zealand motorhome rental companies

Backpacker Sleepervans

Backpacker Sleepervans was formed in 1983. Their family operated business provides outstanding travel transportation services to visitors wishing to experience affordable, flexible and fun travel around the North and South Islands of New Zealand.

Backpacker Sleepervans offer low cost rental rates and comfortable New Zealand self-drive holidays for young budget adventure seeker travellers. The vehicles are modern, funky designed vans that capture the style and imagination of free spirited travellers. We realise that young independent globetrotters are not interested in ‘just being a number’ and lumbering around scenic New Zealand in large mass-produced, expensive motorhomes. With our sleepervans you are guaranteed to stand out from the crowd along the main routes or off the beaten track. Each of our economy vans has an exciting unique New Zealand theme professionally applied to the exterior of the vehicles, while the interior is packed with special design features not found elsewhere.

Backpacker Sleepervans Insurance

Insurance

The vehicle has comprehensive insurance cover in case of accident damage or loss of contents (excluding personal belongings). The hirers liable up to the excess/deductible for the cost of damage to third party property or to the rented vehicle, including single vehicle accident, windscreen and tyre damage, overhead and underbody damage, towing and recovery costs, theft, fire, break in or vandalism. The Liability applies in respect of each claim, not per rental. In addition to the Liability, and where our Bond Waiver has been purchased, an administration fee of $150 will be charged per claim. Otherwise, the fee is $450.00 per claim.

When you collect your vehicle we take an impression of your credit card for the bond. We do not deduct the bond from the credit card at the start of your hire, but merely hold the authority to deduct it in the unfortunate event of an accident. The impression of your credit card covers your accident/ damage bond liability plus any extra costs such as refilling fuel, cleaning, emptying of the toilet at the end of hire or any traffic infringements, losses or breakages and any related surcharges. Each separate accident will incur an excess charge. A credit card imprint must be on all rental agreements and must be the credit card of the main hirer unless prior arrangements have been made. For customers who are using debit cards for the bond imprint, due to the limitations within Terms of Use for Debit Cards these are treated as cash and the full excess will be debited unless the excess reduction is purchased and then a signed imprint will be taken.

Please Note: For customers who are using debit cards for the security deposit, due to the limitations within terms of use for debit cards these are treated as cash and the full excess will be debited unless the bond waiver is purchased and then a signed imprint will be taken.

Bond

Deluxe Sleepervan – There is an excess of NZ$4,000 (NZ$5,000 for drivers aged under 25 years)  included within our standard rates.
Budget SleepervanThere is an excess of NZ$2,000 (NZ$3,000 for drivers aged under 25 years) included within our standard rates.

Optional Coverages

In addition to the insurance cover set out above, the hirer may also choose the Bond Waiver Insurance (BWI) options or Windscreen/Tyre Insurance (WTI) by so indicating on the Rental Document.  The amount of that excess and the daily rate payable in respect of BWI is dependent upon the age of the hirer and the type of vehicle hired.

Bond waiver/excess reduction (BWI)

You are fully insured in case of accident damage. The Liability is applicable regardless of who is at fault and must be paid upon the completion of the rental period. If the hirer is not at fault and the third party admits liability, then Tui Sleepervans will refund the amount charged to the hirer upon receipt of payment from the third party. Please note the hirer is fully liable for all towing/retrieval costs of the damaged vehicle regardless of the purchase of the Excess Reduction. Please be aware that once the Excess Reduction is selected and confirmed with Tui Sleepervans, the cost of the Excess Reduction Option is non-refundable.

The bond can be reduced by purchasing one of the following Reduction Options:

Reduction Option 1:

Deluxe Sleepervan  
This option can be purchased by paying an additional NZ$25 per day (NZ$30 per day for drivers under 25 years) reduces excess to NZ$1,800 and only a credit card imprint is required.
Budget Sleepervan – 
This option can be purchased by paying an additional NZ$15 per day (NZ$20 per day for drivers under 25 years) reduces excess to NZ$800 and only a credit card imprint is required.

Reduction Option 2:

Deluxe Sleepervan  
This option can be purchased by paying an additional NZ$45 per day (NZ$50 per day for drivers under 25 years) reduces excess to NZ$0 and only a credit card imprint is required.
Budget Sleepervan – 
This option can be purchased by paying an additional NZ$30 per day (NZ$35 per day for drivers under 25 years) reduces excess to NZ$0 and only a credit card imprint is required.

Windscreen/Tyre Insurance (WTI)

This option can be purchased by paying an additional $9 per day to provide protection for damage to the front windscreen and tyres.  Included is two tyre replacements, multiple tyre punctures, one windscreen and multiple windscreen chips.

Please note that Excess Reduction is completely optional and can be decided upon collection of your vehicle. This additional insurance only covers you for one incident where after your standard excess applies. You can apply to purchase this cover for the remaining days of your hire. 

Number of claims

Each insurance policy can only have one individual claim made by the hirer. The policy is cancelled after each accident and all payments are forfeited. Tui Sleepervans reserves the right to agree to a renewal of any insurance policy or to cancel the hire at the hirers cost.  

Accessories

Accessories are available to hire off Backpacker Sleepervans. It is best to pre order these to guarantee availability. You can still order the accessories at pick up but your first choice may not be available. Please note the hirer is fully liable for all costs if the accessories are lost, damaged or stolen regardless of what Excess Reduction Option was taken.
