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

You are fully insured in case of accident damage or loss of contents (excluding personal belongings). There is an excess/deductible of NZ$1500 (NZ$2500 for drivers under 25 Years of age). This covers the cost of damage to Third Party property or to the rented vehicle, including single vehicle accident, windscreen and tyre damage (unless BWI is taken), overhead and underbody damage, towing and recovery costs, theft, fire, break in or vandalism. This also includes the cost of the daily rental rate for the period the vehicle is off fleet for accident repairs. This excess applies in respect of each claim, not rental. In addition to the Liability an administration fee of $60 will be charged per claim.

New Zealand legislation provides limited coverage for personal injury. We strongly recommend that you have personal travel insurance while traveling.

When you collect your vehicle we take an impression of your credit card for the bond of NZ$1500. This is the insurance excess for any single accident which may occur during your holiday. For drivers aged 21-24 Years the bond is NZ$2500. (We do not deduct the Bond from your Bank account at the start of your hire). The impression of your credit card covers your accident-damage bond liability plus any extra costs such as fuel fill-up and 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 Backpacker Sleepervans for 21 Days following hire.

Backpacker Sleepervans Campers offers Excess Reduction as an optional extra at a fixed rate of NZ$17.00 per day ($22 per day for drivers under 25 years). This has a nil excess that covers you if you have an accident with another vehicle whether your fault or not, (especially if you have an accident with another vehicle and they have no insurance).

This Excess Reduction also has a nil excess that covers any accidental damage to Windscreens including deplacement plus accidental damage to tyres. Excess Reduction does not cover you if you have a misjudgment of dimensions, eg hit a stationary object.
Please note that Excess Reduction is completely optional and can be decided upon collection of your vehicle

- Any water related damage, which includes but is not limited to:
  a) Any vehicle submersion
  b) Creek or river crossing
  c) Driving through low plain flooded areas
  d) Beach driving.
- Personal belongings: We recommend the hirer does not leave valuables in the vehicle and that they take out personal insurance.
- If the terms of the Rental Agreement are breached the hirer will be responsible for the total cost of any damage. This will also include any damage caused by willful misconduct (e.g. sitting or standing on the bonnet or roof of the vehicle) and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- The incorrect use of fuel (fuel being diesel or petrol). The hirer will be responsible for any associated cost.
- The cost to retrieve or recover a vehicle which has become bogged.
