Terms and Conditions

Go your own way with WorldWide Campers

As international camper hire broker, we offer a pre-paid, all inclusive product. We work with international rv-rental companies continuously comparing terms, conditions and prices of all rv-rental companies. However, each location or camper rental company offers different terms and conditions. The most important terms and conditions which apply to all our rental motor homes are listed in the information below. All conditions are applicable for most of the camper suppliers, however terms and conditions can vary per camper rental company. Please check the individual conditions per camper supplier before you make your booking.

Quotes

Through worldwidecampers.com you can make a quote for your RV rental. This quote has a validity of 5 working days or as long as the applicable flex rate is valid. After that we are happy to make you a new quote. If you like to convert your quote into a booking, you have to confirm this by email. With this conformation you will automatically agree with our general conditions and the conditions of the applicable supplier. As soon as your booking is confirmed by the supplier, you can only cancel according to the conditions of the supplier. At that moment you are required to pay.

Payment conditions

A down payment of at least 10% is required within five working days after invoice date. Should the supplier demand a higher deposit, or a cancelation is only possible at a certain cost, that amount is applicable. If the down payment is not received within five working days, the booking will be cancelled and no rights can be derived from the reservation. The full amount should be received by Worldwide Campers 3 months prior to pickup date. In case the reservation cannot be canceled anymore, the payment should be received by Worldwide Campers before the reservation can be confirmed at the supplier. Until then the availability is not yet confirmed.
In case the reservation date is less than 3 months before pick up date, full payment should be done within 5 working days. Failure to do so will result in cancelation of the booking and no rights can be derived from the reservation. You will still be responsible for full payment.

At the end of the rental period you must return your vehicle to the correct place at the arranged time undamaged and clean. Check that your vehicle is returned to the same rental company as it was collected from.

Accidents

In case of an accident you have to call the police immediately and acquire a full police report. You must inform the rental company within 24 hours. You should also write your own report, pictures of the vehicle may function as proof. When you fail to do so, there will be no compensation.
