Hire Bond / Insurance Excess

PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR BOND/ EXCESS OPTION

WHAT IS INSURANCE EXCESS? An excess is the amount of money you must pay in the event of an insurance claim following an accident should the damage amount be higher than the excess.

WHAT IS A BOND? A bond is an amount of money we hold to cover the excess amount plus any costs or losses to Driveabout Campers should you require a claim or you damage the vehicle up to this amount. The amount will be refunded when you return the vehicle in the same condition it was rented to you and without an accident claim. We inspect the vehicle upon return and refund immediately, except on an airport or direct address return then the bond will be refunded within 7 days

In the event of an accident in which you are not at fault, we will hold your bond until the 3rd party agrees to pay our costs . once theses costs are met we will refund to you your bond less admin fees. Where we are unable to recover costs then it is the renter’s responsible to recover the excess money from the third party. Please note some insurance claims can take months or even years to resolve.

NOTE : IT IS NOT COMPULSORY FOR VEHICLES IN AUSTRALIA TO HAVE THIRD PARTY PROPERTY DAMAGE INSURANCE
~ VERY IMPORTANT ~
You will not be covered by insurance and will be liable for all damages and losses and costs to Driveabout Campers and third parties if you drive illegally, affected by alcohol or drugs. It is a crime in all states of Australia to do so.
