The Hirer and any other named drivers shall provide the following documentation 14 days prior to hire start date:
When you collect the vehicle, please bring your photocard driving licences with you and original copies of the other forms of ID. Highland Auto Campers cannot be held responsible for any lost holiday time as a result of you forgetting to bring the correct documentation. No refund will be given if the hirer fails to provide the correct documents.
**Please note that if any of the above applies to any proposed driver of the vehicle, this may prohibit you from hiring the campervan. For insurance purposes you must declare ANY endorsements, motoring accidents, or physical or mental conditions**
Drivers are responsible for any penalties such as parking fines and speeding tickets during the hire period.
On collection of the campervan we will jointly inspect the van’s condition and sign out the campervan. On return of the campervan, the van will be inspected to ensure the van is in the same condition as it was at the beginning of the hire period.
A reservation is only binding once the booking is confirmed by Highland Auto Campers by email, and a non-refundable 25% has been received. Settlement of the remaining balance will be due four weeks prior to departure. Payment is taken by debit or credit card. Vehicles will not be released without full payment being completed.
For cancellations more than 4 weeks from the rental date, the 25% non-refundable deposit will be retained.
For cancellations less than 4 weeks from the rental date, 100% of the hire cost will be retained.
We advise all hirers to take out their own holiday insurance to cover any eventualities. There will be no refund in the event of early return e.g. illness, accident.
If the UK Government impose mandatory travel restrictions due to an event beyond Highland Auto Campers control, such as a pandemic, epidemic, war, terrorism, earth quakes, hurricanes or acts of government which renders the planned hire impossible to commence or complete, Highland Auto campers will consider this a force majeure under law and will enforce their standard cancellation policy. If this happens during an ongoing hire, the vehicle will be recalled as soon as possible. For this reason, customers are strongly advised to take out appropriate travel insurance for their trip. Alternatively, any existing booking may be deferred to a later date upon discussion and formal agreement with Highland Auto Campers should a force majeure be activated. Any deferred booking must be taken within 12 months of the postponement or the offer will expire, and the force majeure refund policy will be enforced.
In the event of the campervan breaking down and being un-drive-able, Highland Auto Campers will provide you with details for contacting vehicle breakdown assistance, who will attempt to fix the vehicle or recovery back to Highland Auto Campers. In the case of you being without the van you will be refunded on a pro-rata basis. We cannot accept liability for missed functions or events due to breakdown.
In the unfortunate event that the campervan is damaged and un-driveable or stolen prior to your hire, and we cannot provide a replacement vehicle, a full refund of all monies paid will be given. We cannot accept liability for missed functions, travel costs and other commitments such as campsite bookings due to breakdown or theft, and we cannot accept liability for adverse weather conditions affecting any hire.
It is the hirer’s responsibility to provide their own insurance to cover personal items and belongings, personal injury, and cancellations.
