Security Bond

For security purposes only a credit card can be used to provide a vehicle security bond. The credit card holder must be present and able to sign for the deposit upon vehicle collection. The credit card holder is jointly and severally liable for any damage to the rental vehicle. The security deposit is fully refundable when the vehicle is returned to the correct location on time, with a full fuel tank, toilet and gray water tanks emptied and all other terms of the Rental Agreement have been complied with. If there is damage to the vehicle on its return, the security bond will be used to cover the cost of such damage up to the amount of the relevant liability. However, if the terms of the Rental Agreement are breached and the security bond is insufficient to cover the damage, then any extra cost will be charged. Refunds by credit card including bond refunds can take up to 14 working days and the time can vary depending on the Financial Institutions involved. Refund of the security bond is not a waiver of the Customer’s liability under the Rental Agreement, Cruisin retains the right to recover monies for Damage notwithstanding the return or refund of the security bond. 

Personal Injury

Personal Injury caused when involved in a motor vehicle accident is covered in most cases through Registration Third Party insurance. However, we strongly recommend that all people traveling in Australia take out Personal Travel insurance. Cruisin Motorhomes does not accept any liability for personal injuries sustained during the rental.

 

Property Damage

The Vehicle is insured for damage to it or damage to the property of a third party. However the renter is responsible up to the amount of the applicable Liability for the cost of such damage to third property, or to the rented Vehicle. The renter is also responsible for the cost of demurrage for the period the Vehicle is unavailable due to repair. The Liability applies in respect of each claim, not per rental. The Liability is applicable regardless of who is at fault and must be paid at the time the accident is reported to Cruisin Motorhomes, not at the completion of the rental period. Cruisin Motorhomes reserves the right to charge the renter for any vehicle damage including Third Party property damage not reported on return of the vehicle.
