Coastal Campers New Zealand

We are a small family owned & operated business passionate about motorhome holidays.  We have recently opened in the Coromandel Peninsula area so that local families and visitors can easily hire a motorhome or campervan to see & enjoy the many beautiful places in this region and beyond.

A motorhome holiday gives you the chance to get out there and have an adventure together.  There are so many things to do & places to explore.  And unlike other rental companies, we have NO road restrictions so you can camp right beside the beach at Port Jackson, by the river in the bush at Broken Hills or at a campground with all its amenities. .

One Way Hires
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer one-way hires.

Vehicle Availability
Coastal Campers shall make every effort to provide the vehicle requested, but where a vehicle is unavailable for any reason we reserve the right to provide a comparably high standard vehicle at the same or lower daily rate. While including the same facilities, vehicle layouts may vary slightly to those shown due to manufacturer design changes. This shall not constitute a breach of contract and does not entitle the hirer to any refund. Should this replacement not be possible, we still refund each full day of the hire this is lost.

Rental Extension
Extension of hire is subject to availability and confirmation from Coastal Campers. The cost of the extension is to be paid at the time of confirmation.

Insurance And Bond

Compulsory Standard Insurance
Standard insurance means that the vehicle you hire is insured for damage to the vehicle and to the property of Third Party. This insurance cover of $16 per day is a compulsory fee. When you collect your vehicle we take an impression of your credit card for the bond. This is also the insurance excess (the $amount the driver is liable for) for any single accident which may occur during your holiday. The excess is NZ$1500  for drivers over 25 years of age or NZ $2000 for drivers aged 21 to 24 years. We do not deduct the bond / excess from credit card at the start of your hire, but merely hold the authority to deduct it in the unfortunate event of an accident. The impression of your credit card covers your accident damage bond liability plus any extra costs such as fuel fill-up and emptying of the toilet at the end of hire or any traffic infringements, losses or breakages. A credit card imprint must be on all rental agreements and must be the credit card of the main hirer unless prior arrangements have been made. Where a credit card is not available, a cash bond will be held by Coastal Campers for 21 days following hire. Insurance does not cover the hirer’s personal property. The hirer will be fully liable for puncture repairs or replacement of damaged tyres with the same type and brand.

Bond
A security bond must be paid at the commencement of hire. This is done by taking an imprint of your credit card (no funds are withdrawn from your account). This imprint is returned to you at the termination of hire, subject to the following:

  • No damage has been incurred to the vehicle or any third party property
  • No items belonging to Coastal Campers have been lost or damaged
  • The hire vehicle is returned in a clean condition
  • The fuel tank and LPG bottles are full
  • Toilet and waste water tanks have been emptied
  • Any traffic and infringement fines have been paid.

Charges will apply if these criteria are not met. The bond/excess is NZ$1500 for drivers over 25 years of age and NZ$2000 for drivers aged 21 to 24 years

Additional Fees

Late Return Fee
The vehicle shall be returned in a clean condition and on the return date of the agreement. If the vehicle is kept beyond the contractual hire period without authorization or consultation with Coastal Campers, the contracted daily rate will be doubled for each day the vehicle is overdue. One way hires are not permitted.

Damage Fees
Should there be any damage to vehicle equipment or optional extras that have been hired out and or not returned, a replacement fee starting at $100 will be charged against your security bond.

Waste Tank Fees
A fee of $200 applies if the waste tanks have not been emptied at the time of return.

Smoking Fee
Smoking in the Vehicle is prohibited. Any evidence of smoking in the vehicle will incur a cleaning fee of $300.

For example, a weather event, public health event (including epidemic / pandemic), medical emergencies, strike, terrorist act, governmental, regional or local authority restrictions (such as restrictions on movement due to the COVID-19 pandemic) or a change in law). If this occurs, your entitlement to a credit or refund will be as provided in your Third Party Provider’s terms and conditions.

Information disclaimer

The rates on this website are often heavily discounted. This is due to our negotiated rates and bulk buying power. On very rare occasions, a rate may be displayed incorrectly due to our, or a Third Party Provider’s error. In such a case, if you book with us at a quoted rate that is incorrect, we will notify you of any price change and give you the option to proceed or cancel. We make every effort to keep information on our site up to date, but we cannot guarantee this website is free of errors or omissions and retain the right to update or change the information published at any time.

Liability

To the extent permitted by law we/the owners of this website will not be liable to you or to any third party (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) for any direct, indirect or consequential loss or damage or for any accident, injury, delay or loss of enjoyment arising out of your reliance upon information contained on this website, including but not limited to your use (or inability to use) any products or services described or procured through this website.

Your rental and use of a vehicle booked through our site will be governed by the terms of the rental agreement with the Third Party Provider. The rental agreement and any other documentation provided to you by the Third Party Provider is between you and the Third Party Provider and we will not be liable to you or to any third party in any way in relation to that agreement or your vehicle or rental service where your booking has been properly processed by us. We are not responsible or liable to you for (i) the acts or omissions of the Third Party Provider in respect of your booking or in the course of delivering the rental service to you; or (ii) any disputes in respect of your booking with that Third Party Provider or that service, except in each case to the extent that responsibility for those matters may be imposed on us by applicable law. While we will make reasonable efforts to ensure we are representing only reputable Third Party Providers, we make no warranty about the fitness suitability of any Third Party Provider product or service and will not accept responsibility for the quality fitness of any vehicle. If you encounter issues with the vehicle whilst on hire, you MUST report these issues directly to the relevant Third Party Provider at the earliest possible time. This will allow the Third Party Provider to remedy any issues and minimise any inconvenience to you. If you fail to report any vehicle issues during your rental, it is likely that compensation will not be offered. We welcome feedback from our customers on their experience with our Third Party Providers. We may, at our discretion, provide you with reasonable assistance in resolving any dispute you may have with a Third Party Provider. Where we are liable to you terms and conditions, our total liability to you will be limited to (at our option) resupply of the booking service provided to you or the dollar amount of the deposit we received from you in relation to your booking. Again, we strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance. Your use of this website is governed by the laws of New Zealand and the jurisdiction of the New Zealand courts.

Booking information

To make a booking you must complete our booking form which is easy to follow and secured with the latest encryption technology. Once we receive your form, we will availability confirm your booking email you a confirmation voucher and invoice. The deposit required to secure your vehicle (as shown on the secure booking page) will only be processed on your credit card when your booking is confirmed. Please note that a 2% credit card or debit card surcharge will be added when your payment is processed. A booking is confirmed when you have been emailed a confirmation voucher and at this stage the deposit is processed on your card and becomes non-refundable and any cancellation fees stated in the Third Party Providers terms apply. Upon receipt of your confirmation, please check your details carefully and notify us immediately if there are any incorrect details, as it may not be possible to make changes at a later date. If you are booking via phone, please make sure you have read the terms and conditions of the vehicle you wish to rent first. Our reservations consultant will ask you if you have read the terms and agree to them before proceeding. The onus is always on the renter to ensure they make themselves fully aware of the terms displayed on our website.

Information disclosure

In booking on this website you acknowledge that we disclose your information to your selected Third Party Provider in order for them to provide the requested rental services to you.

Amendments

Please note that some Third Party Providers treat an amendment as a new booking and apply the rate current at the time the amendment is made to recalculate the entire booking amount (not just the days changed). If the rental period is increased, an additional deposit may be required. If the rental period is shortened which results in a reduction of the rental charges, the deposit amount will remain unchanged, and the difference between the original and revised deposit is forfeited (it cannot be used towards remaining rental charges). To request a change to a confirmed booking, please use the alterations request link on your confirmation. Any alterations are subject to availability and the approval of the Third Party Provider. In addition to the alteration policy of the Third Party Provider stated in their terms, the following charges will apply in respect of our booking service relating to that amendment: Motorhome rental alterations (all charges stated in local currency): 25.00 The alteration fee will not be charged if your alteration request is not possible.

Vehicle Capacity and fitness to drive

Under no circumstances are you permitted to carry more passengers than the vehicle you rent is legally registered to carry, and if you do your insurance may be invalidated. The number of seatbelts (and passengers) is indicated next to each vehicle on this website. Luggage capacity where shown is an indication only and we will not be responsible should you be unable to fit your entire luggage into a vehicle. It is your responsibility to choose a journey that is within your capabilities. A Third Party Provider can refuse to rent a vehicle to any person who is in their opinion unfit to drive or does not meet eligibility requirements. In such circumstances we will have no further liability to you.

Refund and Cancellation Policy

We are committed to providing a quality service and aim for complete customer satisfaction. In the event of cancellation, any refunds, credits or cancellation charges that apply are detailed in the terms and conditions of the Third Party Provider of your selected vehicle. In the event you are unsatisfied with our booking service, please contact us within 48 hours of placing your booking or request and we will work to resolve any issues and determine if compensation is due. In the event you have completed your rental and are unhappy with your vehicle, we are happy to assist you in seeking compensation from the Third Party Provider.

Sometimes a booking may need to be cancelled because of circumstances beyond either party’s control. For example, a weather event, public health event (including epidemic / pandemic), medical emergencies, strike, terrorist act, governmental, regional or local authority restrictions (such as restrictions on movement due to the COVID-19 pandemic) or a change in law). If this occurs, your entitlement to a credit or refund will be as provided in your Third Party Provider’s terms and conditions.

You agree that you will raise and resolve any dispute over refunds or cancellations in respect of your booking (whether initiated by you, the Third Party Provider or by circumstances beyond the reasonable control of either party, including as a result of government travel restrictions, the COVID 19 pandemic or the insolvency of your Third Party Provider) directly with the Third Party Provider. Once you have made payment for your booking, you must not seek to reverse or cancel such payment through your card issuer or its agents without our prior consent.

We shall only be liable to provide a refund to you (whether that cancellation is initiated by you, the Third Party Provider or due to circumstances beyond the reasonable control of either party, including as a result of government travel restrictions, the COVID 19 pandemic or the insolvency of your Third Party Provider) to the extent that we actually receive a refund from the relevant Third Party Provider. Where refunds are due to you from a Third Party Provider, we will provide reasonable assistance to you in claiming such funds from that Third Party Provider. In that situation, you authorise us to seek such refunds from the travel provider directly and on your behalf.

Where a refund is applicable, the turnaround time from the date of your request for refund to the date you are provided with your refund may take up to 12 weeks. This is beyond our control.

We are not responsible (including in negligence) to you for any failure or delay on the part of any Third Party Provider in providing travel products to you where the booking has been properly processed.

Coastal Campers New Zealand Insurance

Insurance And Bond
Compulsory Standard Insurance
Standard insurance means that the vehicle you hire is insured for damage to the vehicle and to the property of Third Party. This insurance cover of $16 per day is a compulsory fee. When you collect your vehicle we take an impression of your credit card for the bond. This is also the insurance excess (the $amount the driver is liable for) for any single accident which may occur during your holiday. The excess is NZ$1500  for drivers over 25 years of age or NZ $2000 for drivers aged 21 to 24 years. We do not deduct the bond / excess from credit card at the start of your hire, but merely hold the authority to deduct it in the unfortunate event of an accident. The impression of your credit card covers your accident damage bond liability plus any extra costs such as fuel fill-up and emptying of the toilet at the end of hire or any traffic infringements, losses or breakages. A credit card imprint must be on all rental agreements and must be the credit card of the main hirer unless prior arrangements have been made. Where a credit card is not available, a cash bond will be held by Coastal Campers for 21 days following hire. Insurance does not cover the hirer’s personal property. The hirer will be fully liable for puncture repairs or replacement of damaged tyres with the same type and brand.

Bond
A security bond must be paid at the commencement of hire. This is done by taking an imprint of your credit card (no funds are withdrawn from your account). This imprint is returned to you at the termination of hire, subject to the following:
: No damage has been incurred to the vehicle or any third party property
: No items belonging to Coastal Campers have been lost or damaged
: The hire vehicle is returned in a clean condition
: The fuel tank and LPG bottles are full
: Toilet and waste water tanks have been emptied
: Any traffic and infringement fines have been paid.
Charges will apply if these criteria are not met. The bond/excess is NZ$1500 for drivers over 25 years of age and NZ$2000
for drivers aged 21 to 24 years
