In addition to the Liability an administration fee of $150 will be charged per claim.

Bond
When you collect your vehicle we take an impression/Photo of your credit card as the bond for your excess/deductible. This is the insurance excess for any single accident which may occur during your holiday. The impression of your credit card covers your accident-damage bond liability plus any extra costs such as fuel fill-up, Road User Charges, emptying of the toilet at the end of hire, or any traffic infringements, losses or breakages. A credit card imprint/photo must be on all rental agreements and must be the credit card of the main hirer unless prior arrangements have been made. We do not deduct the bond from the credit card, but merely hold the authority to deduct it in the unfortunate event of an accident. Where a credit card is not available, a cash bond will be held by Adventurer Campers for 21 Days following hire.
Please Note: For customers who are using debit cards for the security deposit, due to the limitations within Terms of Use for Debit Cards these are treated as cash and the full excess will be debited unless the Bond Waiver is purchased and then a signed imprint will be taken.
