The rights and obligations contained in these terms and conditions govern your use of our van and are not transferable by you. You acknowledge that the van is owned by us and that any attempted transfer or sub letting of the van by anyone other than us is prohibited and a criminal offence. We permit you to use the van on the terms of this Rental Agreement only.

Security Deposit – The £500 security deposit is refundable on safe return of the van, in the condition in which it left our workshop subject to an inspection satisfactory to us. This must be paid to cover the possibility of damage (whether negligent, wilful, accidental or otherwise) or loss to the van or the fixtures and fittings therein or the living equipment and windows, wheels, tyres etc included with the van. The van and all its equipment must be returned in good condition, with no damage to it, its contents or any third party property.

You irrevocably authorise us to deduct from the Security Deposit any amounts due to us arising out of this Agreement. If we are not holding your card information, then you agree irrevocably to pay all charges upon request.

Where the security deposit is insufficient to cover the costs, you will pay any additional amounts due. These will be invoiced as appropriate and you authorise us to deduct any sums due from your card in respect of such amount. Where charges are incurred which result in your security deposit being debited we will provide you with an itemised invoice detailing the charges incurred by you. Your signature below gives us permission to deduct all charges from your card within 7 days of the issue of an invoice. If we are not holding your card information then you agree you to pay all charges upon presentation of the invoice.
Charges – If, on arrival to collect your van, your licence is unacceptable due to endorsements or defacement, you will be unable to hire the van and no monies will be refunded to you. The charges stated on the rental invoice reflect your use of the van during the rental period and include basic hire charges, insurance, charges for any optional or ancillary services chosen by you, and any applicable taxes at the prevailing rate. Additional charges may arise from your use of the van during the rental period, and may include (but are not limited to) loss of or damage to the van and its contents during the rental period and/or until the van is examined, the insurance excess, refuelling service charge and fuel cost, any late return charge, excess mileage charges, any additional driver charge, any pet damage charge, extra cleaning charge and any road tolls or fines for charges arising from traffic or parking offences during the rental period. All charges are subject to final calculation within 14 days of the end of the rental period.

Insurance – The vans all have comprehensive insurance for the first and any other named drivers. Insurance is only for our van. The interior equipment and other items as specified in the Van Handbook/folder are not covered by the Insurance and any damage will incur costs in addition to the Excess.
Failing to provide information may invalidate your insurance and render you liable for all losses howsoever sustained including claims by third parties.
You must provide true and complete information for our insurers as requested before the hire period commences. If you make your hire booking less than 10 days before the hire is due to commence, all information required by the insurance company must be provided at the time of booking. This is to ensure that the insurance company can confirm they are willing to insure your chosen driver(s). Failure to provide this information within the time specified may result in us being unable to proceed with your booking.
Should you fail to provide the required information in time and your booking is cancelled as a consequence, our policy on cancellation fees as set out above applies.
You are advised to take out your own personal effects and travel insurance to cover items not part of the insurance, last minute cancellations etc.
We are not responsible for any damage in connection with any accident or breakdown caused by you, nor are we responsible for any loss from the van. Our insurance policy protects us and any authorised driver against legal claims from any other person or for death or personal injury or damage to any other person’s property caused by use of the van on the road, on condition you report all such incidents to us during the rental period or on return of the van (and you are using the van within the terms and conditions and those of our insurance company). The terms and conditions of our insurance company are included. In the event that any third party suffers death, personal injury or damage to property caused by use of the van which involves a breach by you or any authorised driver of any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and that of our insurance policy, or our Health and Safety Guidelines, you agree to reimburse us if we are obliged to compensate (a) the insurers for any payment they make to a third party on your behalf and/or (b) any third party.
Excess and Collision Damage Reducer
Our insurers may increase the excess payable by you if you are under 25 or over 75, hold a foreign licence, have driving offences on your licence or have criminal convictions. We will inform you before the hire period commences of any increases in the excess the insurance company intends to make. For your information, this excess is set between £1000-£1500 depending on age.
If an insurance claim is made, you are responsible for a £1000 excess (or excess of a greater amount if you are notified before the rental period commences about such change to the excess due) which is due in each and every incident and includes loss or damage to equipment, fixtures and fittings or to third party property. The excess applies in respect of each claim.
An insurance policy excess charge of £500.00 is payable for each incident claimed on the motor insurance policy, if the cost of the claim is expected to meet or exceed this amount. If the claim cost is less than the policy excess, you will be liable for the full claims costs. In the event of Campervans en le Frith receiving from the third party any part of the amount to reimburse the policy excess payment made and provided you have performed your obligations hereunder, Campervans en le Frith shall repay to the hirer the like part of such excess;
Overhead Objects and Flooding – All drivers must be aware of the unusually high nature of these vehicles when driving under low bridges, canopy’s, car park height restrictions etc. The headroom clearance is usually stated within the driver’s field of vision. Drivers are also not permitted to take vehicles through road flood water under any circumstances. Damage to the vehicle caused through road flood water or collision with an overhead object (any damage above the height of 6’/1.83 metres) is classified as negligence.
Drivers’ Licence, Health and History – Drivers must be over 23 years of age and under 79, in good health and hold a full driving licence. “Good Health” means that you have no mental or physical disabilities which would interfere with your ability to drive, for example stroke/deafness/heart condition/unmanaged diabetes/loss of limb/loss of sight in an eye/epilepsy.

We will need to see the driving licences for all named drivers, plus two forms of further address identification such as a recent utility bill or bank statement (for each driver) on collection of the van. We are also required to run a DVLA check on your license. This should be performed in advance of collection where possible by providing us with your National Insurance Number. Alternatively, you can choose to visit the DVLA website to generate a ‘check code’ if you would prefer not to disclose your National Insurance Number. A maximum of 3 drivers per rental is allowed by our insurers. You cannot drive away a van without us having sight of your licences and ID documents.
The van must only be driven by you or any other person who has first been authorised by us, for whom you have provided the insurance, driving licence and personal identification information. Failure to provide accurate information may invalidate the insurance and render you liable for all losses howsoever sustained including claims by third parties.

changed, including but not limited to the number of points on a driver’s licence.
