Quality Campervan Hire for Cumbria and Beyond
The campervan hire booking form must be completed and sent to us with a non refundable booking deposit of £100. This can be made by bank transfer or paid by cheque. Cheque should be made payable to Julie Parnaby. Cheques for bookings can only be accepted if it is more than two weeks before the start hire date.
On receipt of the completed booking form and your deposit, we shall confirm the hire by email or in writing to your address, and this contract comes into effect when we post that confirmation to you. The balance of the hire charge must be paid at least 6 weeks before the start of the hire period. Failing this, we reserve the right to rent out the vehicle to someone else and keep your booking deposit.
The Security Deposit of £500 must be paid in cash or cheque before you will be allowed to drive the vehicle. This is to cover any damage to the vehicle. Our insurers charge us £600 excess and the difference would be passed onto you should a claim be necessary. The security deposit would also be used for additional cleaning service charge, late return charge, and any road tolls or fines for charges arising from traffic or parking offences that have occurred during the rental period. This is fully refundable subject to the safe return of the vehicle in the condition it left our premises. Deposits will be refunded no less than 7 days after the final day of hire. Cheques will only be cashed should we need to cover some of the above costs.
Please note your 20% booking deposit is not refundable once your booking has been confirmed by us. In the event that you wish to cancel a booking:
Less than 6 weeks prior to departure – no hire charges will be refunded.
Hirers are advised to arrange their own holiday insurance to safeguard against such losses.
