How do we calculate charges?
For travel in the UK our campers are charged at the weekly or per night rate shown for that month. If a rental covers two periods then each night will be charged at the rate for that month, not the rate at the start of the rental period. For travel outside of the UK, for an additional driver and for certain driving licence endorsements additional charges may apply.

Minimum hire period
There is no minimum hire period. A minimum charge of £850 applies for Glastonbury Music Festival. Last minute bookings are sometimes available at reduced prices. For earlier collections, or for later returns please contact us to check availability.

Booking and confirmation
Initial enquiries may be made by phone or online. For bookings more than one month ahead we will hold a provisional reservation for one week. For bookings less than one month ahead we require payment of the £100 per week deposit at the time of booking.

Deposit
Reservation can be secured by payment of a £100 per week deposit. Please note that deposits are non-refundable. Some holiday insurance policies give cover against lost deposits due to illness etc.

Balance
The balance of the payment is due on pick up at the start of the rental. Payment may be made by cash, on-line banking or PayPal.

Security deposit
We require credit or debit card details as security against any loss or damage not covered by our motor insurance company. For example, but not limited to:
Burnt or permanently stained upholstery

Putting petrol or diesel in the drinking water tank
Loss of keys

Your card will only be charged in the event of an accident or other damage or loss.

Drivers

Driving licence
The standard tariff is based on one driver aged between 25 and 75, with a full UK driving licence held for at least 2 years and with no more than 6 current points. To meet insurance requirements every driver will be asked to produce their photo ID driving licence together with a recent utility bills or credit card statements (dated within the last 3 months) showing the same names and addresses as the driving licences. Any driver who has not yet been issued with a photo card will be asked to produce a valid passport as well. Visitors from abroad must hold a current international driving permit or licence (Foreign licence holders may incur a small additional insurance premium charge).

Endorsements
We will be pleased to provide individual quotations for drivers outside of the parameters above, as there may be an additional insurance premium. If in any doubt please check this before confirming your reservation.

Additional driver
A maximum of one additional driver may be included at a cost of £10 per night.

Comprehensive insurance

Duration of cover
The driver(s) and the vehicle are provided with comprehensive insurance but this is only valid during the agreed term of the rental agreement.

Excess
The excess on this policy is £500. We require credit or debit card details as security for our insurance company. Your card will only be charged in the event of an accident or other damage or loss.

Collision damage waiver (CDW)
On payment of a £10 CDW premium per night, your liability for the insurance excess will be reduced to £150, except for theft or write-off and damage caused by putting petrol or drinking water in the diesel fuel tank, putting petrol or diesel in the water tank, and impact damage to the roof. In such cases the renter will remain fully responsible for the cost of rectification up to the maximum of the insurance excess.

Overseas use
Travel outside of the UK is only permissible with the prior agreement of onelife Experience. The insurance may be extended to cover most European countries but these must be listed and agreed at the time of reservation. Additional charges apply to include overseas documentation and assistance.

Your possessions
Your own personal items are not covered by our insurance. Please check the terms of your household or holiday insurance as these may provide the cover you need.

Gas and Fuel

Diesel
All of our Volkswagen Campervans run on diesel fuel. A full tank of diesel is provided at the start of the rental and the vehicle should be returned with a full tank. If the tank is not full on return we will estimate the cost of fuel required and charge for this together with a £10 administration fee.

We aim to give you enough gas for your rental period. If you run out of gas we will refund the cost of the replacement cylinder and a further £10 for your inconvenience, on presentation of a receipted invoice!
