After 21 years of successful operations Kea Campers has been merged into the Maui Motorhome fleet, a sister company under the THL umbrella organisation. Both brands share the same values, dedication to delivery of excellence in service and a range of vehicles to meet the needs of even the most discerning of travellers. If you are one of the many thousands of loyal KEA Campers past clients you will find Maui more than equal to delivering the same levels of service.
A little about KEA's past. Founded in 1995 KEA Campers Australia quickly established itself as one of the leaders in the motorhome and campervan rental industry and operated over 1200 rental vehicles in Australia, New Zealand and Southern Africa.
KEA operated a modern and well equipped campervan fleet custom made to their own design with the very latest in Australian and International innovation. Taking ideas from feedback of past customers and working with their highly skilled design team, KEA produced motorhomes and campervans specifically designed for the unique Australian environment.
The excess insurance reduction options are highly recommended for peace of mind in the event of an accident. These vary, starting from $28 per day, 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 $7500 is required. Bonds are deposited directly with the vehicle supplier.
Bonds are payable directly to KEA Campers who accept cash, AU$ traveller's cheques (both forms require renter's passport to be presented) and credit cards. Cheques are not accepted.
IMPORTANT - KEA advise that the renter is fully liable for any damage to the KEA Campers vehicle or third party property if:
1. The terms of the rental contract are breached. 2. Damage to the vehicle is caused by careless, wilful or reckless driving. 3. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. 4. Driving on restricted roads. 5. Water submersion or salt water damage caused through own fault. In case of any damage to the KEA Campers vehicle or third party property a second bond will be collected to cover the excess for any subsequent damage.
