To cover the insurance excess if you accident (per incident), a refundable $3500 bond is required when you pickup the campervan. This is typically a credit card imprint (Visa / Mastercard) or cheque, which is retained by Sunrise Holidays for the period of the hire and only used if you have an accident. The bond is refunded in full when you return the vehicle unless:

  • there is damage/loss to the vehicle and/or property or
  • the vehicle is returned in unclean condition or
  • does not have a full fuel tank.

Options to reduce the excess are:

  1. The insurance excess can be reduced to $1,500 for an extra payment of $20 per calendar day, or
  2. The insurance excess can be reduced to$500 for an extra payment of $30 per calendar day

  • If damage has occurred we retain the right to hold these details (credit card, cheque or cash) for 28 days after the hire or until such time as all damages or other charges have been paid for
