The price covers one named driver; additional drivers may be added at an additional charge of £15.00 per driver per day (subject to any endorsements).
Fully comprehensive insurance for the use in the UK is included within the hire charge. The insurance is only valid for the period of the hire, thus any late return would automatically constitute a traffic offence under the Road Traffic Act. Invalid insurance means the driver and main hirer become personally liable for any accident damage to the motorhome, third party property and third party personal injuries. Insurance cover is for the vehicle and equipment only. Personal possessions are not covered; hirers are advised to take out holiday insurance.
A £500 damage deposit/Bond is payable at commencement of hire. If the vehicle is returned in good condition, whole and undamaged, with a clean interior, cooker, oven & empty chemical toilet tank and no other excesses to be charged, the deposit will be refunded within 3 days.
Should the condition of the vehicle be otherwise; then repairs, replacements or cleaning costs will be charged against the deposit. If the hirer is found to have damaged the vehicle by negligence (i.e. no other person or vehicle is involved) the hirer will be responsible for full rectification costs which will be charged against the deposit. Front and rear bumpers, over cab mouldings, roof lights, windows, wing mirrors and external doors are typical components prone to damage by negligence.
Failure to return the vehicle in a clean (particularly the cooker, oven & chemical toilet) condition will incur a £50.00 valeting charge & a charge of £50.00 will be made for un-emptied chemical toilet tanks.
Hirers travelling abroad will require a minimum of continental comprehensive insurance, and 5 star cover which will be supplied by MC Motorhomes at an additional cost to the hirer of £20.00 per day.
