Insurance Options and Vehicle Bonds

The excess insurance reduction options are highly recommended for peace of mind in the event of an accident. These daily rates vary, full details are available during the selection and booking process.

A Bond is required on any vehicle hired at pick up. If paid by Credit Card this will be debited and reimbursed on return of the vehicle. The Bond reflects (and is reduced by) the insurance excess option taken. If no excess option is taken a bond of $7500 is required. Bonds are deposited directly with Backpacker Campervan Rentals.

Debited Bonds are payable at vehicle pick up directly to Backpacker Campervan Rentals who charge a surchage fee for Credit Cards. Tip - ensure you have funds available on a credit card to cover any bond.
