Terms and Policies

Here’s The Rules, Ya’ll:

1. Have fun in this van!
We hope you’ve made the right choice for your adventure, but we are not responsible to pay you back if you are not having fun, or have not made the right choice for your adventure.

2. Don’t trash the van, or we will have to charge you a $200 cleaning fee.
To avoid the cleaning fee, don’t smoke (anything) in the van, and take care of the interior.

3. Return the van on time, with the same amount of gas that you drove away with.
A $5/gal fee will be deducted from your security deposit for refueling. The late fee is ¼ of the booking rate per hour (4 hours late is charged for an extra day). You’re responsible to pay the full booking, even if you pick your van up late or bring it back early.

4. Mileage.
150 miles/day included. Additional .35/mile thereafter.

Additional Mileage Packages

The first 150 miles per day are already included with additional travel charged at .35/mile thereafter.

However, we know that a road trip sometimes requires a bit more distance. That’s why we offer additional milage packages.

You can purchase additional milage packages if you plan on an extended trip:

  • 500 additional miles for $120 (.24¢/mile)
  • 1,000 for $220 (.22¢/mile)
  • 1,500 miles for $300 (.20¢/mile)
  • 3,000 miles for $540 (.18¢/mile)

5. You’re responsible to pay for damage to the interior or exterior of the vehicle.
Your insurance will cover major damage to the exterior, but it doesn’t cover damage to the interior, nor minor road damage like windshield or tire damage. We offer (optional) additional insurance if you would like to buy this, so that you don’t have to worry about the stuff that your insurance won’t cover. If you’re in an accident, call the police (911) and then call us: 828-772-1097. For minor damage that doesn’t involve another vehicle, call us.

6. Super important!
Only drivers who are listed on the rental agreement can drive the van. If someone not listed on the agreement has an accident, the insurance will not cover it, and this will be very expensive for the renter that signed the agreement. Drivers must have a valid driver’s license. Check the expiration date of your license! We cannot hand you the keys if your license will expire during the reservation.

7. Other things that would get expensive for you:
If you’ve given us the wrong information (like a fake ID) and something happens, you would be totally financially responsible for any issues. Don’t drive it under the influence (there’s no need – you’re already home!) and don’t climb around up top. Don’t break the laws of the road or drive like a jerk, and be careful on unpaved roads. Passenger and driver must wear seatbelts, so don’t hide your buddies under the bed – it’s not safe, and the insurance won’t cover you.

8. If it breaks down, we’ll do our best to get you back on the road promptly.
If necessary, we will refund the remainder of your booking.

9. Lock it up.
We’re not responsible for your stuff, and we expect you to protect our stuff. If anything happens, call the police (911) and then call us: 828-772-1097.

10. Deposit, cancellation fees, and other possible fees:
There is a $285 damage deposit. You will get your security deposit back when you bring the van back in good condition. If you cancel at the last minute, we won’t have time to rent it back out, so you will be charged for a portion of the rental period. (See Cancellation Policies.) You have 150 miles/day included in the rental charge, and then will be charged .35/mile thereafter. We can take these fees out of your deposit, but you’re responsible for any fees, even if they exceed the security deposit.

11. Pets are welcome.
There is no additional fee for bringing your pet… However, your insurance doesn’t cover damage to interior of the camper, so you will be charged directly for any interior damage. Optional additional damage insurance is available for purchase at $20/day.
