Budget Campers 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.

Bond

When you collect your vehicle we take an impression of your credit card as the bond for your excess/deductible. This is the insurance excess for any single accident which may occur during your holiday. The impression of your credit card covers your accident-damage bond liability plus any extra costs such as fuel fill-up, emptying of the toilet at the end of hire, or any traffic infringements, losses or breakages. 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. We do not deduct the bond from the credit card, but merely hold the authority to deduct it in the unfortunate event of an accident. Where a credit card is not available, a cash bond will be held by Budget Campers for 28 days following hire.

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.

Budget Escape, Budget Seeker – There is an excess of NZ$3,500 (NZ$4,500 for drivers aged under 25 years)  included within our standard rates.

Budget Sleepervan, Finder 2/3 and 4+1There 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.

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

Reduction Option 1:

Budget Escape, Budget Seeker

Where Bond Waiver is not taken or Reduction Option 1 then the Bond can be refunded after we have the repair costs for any damage to our vehicle AND not before one month after the hire ends to cover any late notification of damage to 3rd party property that the hirer may not have disclosed.

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. Budget Campers reserves the right to agree to a renewal of any insurance policy or to cancel the hire at the hirers cost.   The liability applies in respect of each claim, not per rental.
