The excess is usually held on your credit card until you return the Campervan without any damage.

Hire campervan jargon

Rental campervan excess

For rentals outside of the US and Canada there's almost always an excess to pay* - this is similar to the excess on your own campervan in the UK. The excess on hire campervans is high. It's normally in the region of £1,200 to £2,700. If you decide not to insure the excess you will be liable to pay for damage to the campervan up to the excess . Take a look at our Premium Cover rental campervan options if you'd like to avoid having the excess amount blocked on your card when you collect the campervan.

Extra driver charges

A campervan hire agreement is between the hire campervan company and the one person that signs the contract and will be the named driver. This means you need to ask for any other drivers to be added, this usually means an additional cost (which can be up to £13a day or even more). We often list promotions that include extra drivers are free. Beware of being asked if you'd like to add a driver without being informed of the cost.

Third party liability insurance

Third party liability insurance provides protection in case you cause an incident. If you do, it could kill or injure others (for instance your passengers, pedestrians or people in other vehicles), or damage their property (their vehicle, house or possessions, for example). Since they need to be protected, you'd be responsible the cost of any damage, or treating injuries or covering their loss of earnings, as well as the third party's legal costs and court costs.

Third party liability is subject to an excess, which means you'll have to pay the first part of any claim (normally between £750 to £1,500, depending on the campervan, the deal and the country). When you insure the excess , you'll be reimbursed for any or all of the excess amount you have to pay. If you decide to take out Premium Cover, the excess amount can be reduced to zero.

Theft liability cover (theft protection)

It covers the amount due if the hire campervan is stolen. It is subject to an excess , which means you'll be required to pay the first part of an insurance claim (normally between £1,000 to £2,000, depending on the deal, the campervan rental company and the location.

When you insure your excess , however, you'll be refunded for any or all of of the excess amount you pay (See essential cover). With Premium Cover your excess amount can be reduced.

Fuel policy (full to full vs full to empty)

The hire campervans on our site come with a fair full to fuel fuel policy.

When you collect you rental you'll be asked to hold a deposit for fuel on your credit card when you pick up the rental. Fill the rental up and return it full and there's no additional fees for fuel.

You will see full to empty policies on some other sites that seem to be cheaper deals. Always check the small print for full to empty rentals as the refuelling and admin charges associated with full to empty fuel policies always make it more expensive than full to full fuel policies.

CDW (Collision damage waiver)

It covers the campervan for accident damage in the same way the insurance cover you have on your personal campervan does. CDW includes an excess amount which you can cover with an additional policy (See Excess reimbursement insurance). Stress Free Campervan Rental also include rental campervans that include CDW with no excess amount

Excess Insurance

Purchasing essential cover means you'll be refunded for the excess that's held on your credit card by the rental campervan company when you drop off the campervan.

This insurance also tends to cover other potential costs, like cleaning, towing, admin fees and misfuelling fees.

Top tips to find the best cheap Campervan hire

Mileage and fuel policy:

When you're shopping around for your rental on other websites, be careful to check the mileage allowance and fuel policy. Many other websites hide this away in the terms and conditions. If you go over your mileage allowance or rent a Campervan with a full to empty fuel policy, you might end up with some unexpected fees when you return the car. We only compare full to full rentals and we always clearly display the mileage allowance.

Security deposit and excess:

Be sure to compare the amount you'll have to pay as a security deposit on your card. Often, for cheaper Campervan rentals, you will be required to pay a more expensive security deposit, which is held on your card when you collect the car. You'll always see the security deposit amount clearly displayed throughout our website.

Child Seats and other extras:

You can see the cost of these on our extras page. Quite often we have special promotions, including additional drivers in the price. Where free additional drivers are available, you can find them clearly listed on the search results page of website.

One-way fees and border crossing:

If you plan to drive the Campervan over a border into a different country, extra fees are usually charged by the car rental company. Be sure to check the terms and conditions for these before you book as it can be quite expensive. If you don't see them on our website, please get in touch with one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

Campervan Hire including a Free Additional Driver

Look out for deals on our website which include a free additional driver bundled into the price. Use the filters on the search results page to find bundled extra driver deals. It's also possible to add an additional driver on the extras page before you enter your driver details.

Renting a Campervan with One Way Fees included

Most of the campervan rental providers we work with permit you to collect the vehicle in one location and drop off the campervan at a different location. If you have selected a different drop off location for your rental, the prices you'll see displayed on our website will include any additional charges for this. You'll also find a breakdown of the additional fees on the payment page.

Campervan Hire with no Excess Held on Your Credit Card

The insurance excess is the total amount you'd be required to pay if the campervan is stolen, written off or severely damaged. However, the excess on hire campervans can be very expensive. It's normally between £850 to £2,100. If you return the campervan damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you'll have to pay up to the total amount of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the rental campervan, the excess is held on your card as a 'pre-auth' transaction. This means that the amount isn't charged to your credit card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending payment until you return the campervan. You won't usually have to pay currency fees on credit cards for pre authorised transactions, so provided the campervan is dropped off in the same condition as when you collected it, the excess amount is fully refunded to your card with nothing further to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the excess amount will be taken from your bank account and fully refunded when the vehicle is dropped off. If you intend to use a debit card on collection, as the excess amount is often high, we recommend to either buy Premium Cover on our website or to pay for top up insurance at the rental desk.

If you'd like to hire a campervan with a £0 or reduced insurance excess check out our Premium Cover rental options.

How to Hire a Campervan with Child Seats or booster seats

You're allowed to take along your own child seats for your vehicle rental, as long as they meet all of the legal safety requirements for use in your campervan hire location.

You will also have the option to add them to your rental when making a booking on the website. Child seats are paid in local currency when collecting the campervan. Although it's highly unusual for them to be unavailable, their availability is not guaranteed by most campervan rental companies

How to Rent a Campervan with Unlimited Mileage

Our website offers both limited and unlimited mileage rentals.

Limited mileage rentals can often be less expensive than unlimited. For limited mileage rentals, the daily mileage allowance is always clearly displayed. If you choose a rental with limited mileage, you will be liable to pay an additional fee if you exceed the daily allowance. The total mileage allowance for the whole rental is calculated as (the number of rental days multiplied by the daily allowance). You don't have to remain within the daily limit on every day, as long as the total miles used during the rental doesn't exceed the number of days X the daily allowance.

If you choose a limited mileage car hire, we recommend checking the charges for excess mileage. You can find these in our T&Cs section. You can also use the search filters on our website to find car hire including unlimited mileage which can save you money if you're planning a longer trip

Campervan Hire and Cross Border Fees

If you want to pick up your vehicle and take it across the border into a different country, you should always review the terms and conditions. Almost all campervan rental brands insist that you inform them on collection; and will charge additional fees to top up your insurance. If you do not let them know, you might find that your rental will not be insured if you take the rental into a different country.

You can find the information relating to cross border policies by checking the Rental terms and viewing the Cross Border Rules section.

If you cant find the cross border terms and conditions for your car hire get in touch with one of our car rental advisors and they'll be happy to help.

How to hire a campervan without a credit card

We also compare campervan hire deals at 1000s of locations that accept a debit card on collection. You can quickly and easily find these by using the filters on the search results page or taking a look at our Premium Cover options on the extras page.

How to Rent a Campervan with a Low Security Deposit

When you collect the campervan, you will usually be required to leave a security deposit on your debit card or credit card. Deposits vary significantly subject to the make and model of the campervan and the insurance excess amount. Car rental Security deposits can vary between £0 and £2,000.

We compare all of the campervan hire options with a low security deposit and in some instances no deposit at all except for fuel. If you choose to book a rental with Premium Cover included, you can reduce your deposit to cover only the cost of a full tank of fuel (usually less than £100), this is refunded to your card when the rental is dropped off with a full tank.
