years of history.
The Vehicles - Support
What If I Have A Breakdown
Breakdowns and Accident Assistance
All vehicles are fully maintained, serviced at scheduled
kilometer or time frames to supplier's standard and detailed
between rentals by experienced staff. However, minor problems
can occur. If advice or assistance for breakdown is required,
support is available to every renter throughout Australia
by telephoning the telephone number displayed on the vehicle
or calling into any of the supplier's head office or branches.
Accidents must be reported immediately and within 24 hours.
The renter must not admit liability to other parties or make
any offer of settlement.
What If I Have Problems During My Rental
Problems with the vehicle - what do I do?
Any problems associated with the vehicle, including equipment
failure, minor accidents or loss of vehicle property must
be reported to supplier (rental agreement as soon as possible
and within twenty four hours in order to give the supplier
the opportunity to rectify the problem during the rental.
Repairs can be made with only the authorisation from supplier.
Repairs will be approved provided the hirer was not directly
responsible for the damage. Formal receipts must be collected
and submitted for any repair or the claim may not be paid.
What if we have an accident in our campervan?
Any accident must be reported within immediately and within
24 hours. An accident report has to be completed as soon as
possible. It is important to note that you are liable for
all damage costs as a result of any accident, up to the applicable
excess. The applicable excess will be processed at the time
of an accident. Remember, if you have an accident, regardless
of who is at fault, you have to pay the applicable excess.
In Australia, an accident must be reported to the supplier's
Motor Claims Department
What If We Drop Off the Vehicle Early
There will be no refund for early termination of a rental
or Hire Agreement.
Cancellations, Amendments and Terms
All suppliers have different cancellation fees:
Therefore we use that suppliers cancellation policy when
quoting the same suppliers rental vehicles. The agents security
deposit is not refundable though it can be credited to another
security deposit that Goholi or A4WDR books for you in 6 months
with the same supplier. As it can take on average around 8-12
hours to quote, book, ticket and supply constant feedback
on a booking.
An example only of an Suppliers
Cancellation Fees that apply as is as follows:
If cancelled before 21 days - Deposit paid forfeited
If cancelled from 20 to 7 days prior to pick up - Deposit
forfeited plus an additional 20% of Gross Rental (minimum
If cancelled less than 7 days prior to pick up - Deposit forfeited
plus an additional 50% of Gross Rental
If cancelled on day of pick up or No Show - Deposit forfeited
including 100% of Gross Rental
If vehicle is returned early for any reason whatsoever - No
refund available Please note some companies such as Apollo
and have $250 cancellations fees no matter what and amendment
fees. This is clearly stated on your quote.
We at Australia 4 Wheel Drive Rentals do have an amendment
fee for changes. Though simply put if it's easy and your patient
we don't charge. Please note though some supplier companies
such as Apollo may have have amendment fees which is out of
our control and we must collect payment for them. This is
clearly stated on your quote.
Please Tell Me About Travel insurance
We strongly recommend that you take
out your own Personal Injury Travel Insurance (Including cancellation
insurance for all reasons).
The insurance options to reduce the
Excess/Liability on the rental vehicle do not include cover
for personal injury or loss of personal belongings.
Therefore we strongly recommend that
clients ensure they take out the highest level of Travel Insurance,
regardless of if they take out Excess Reduction.
The security bond required for the
standard insurance will be debited in full to a credit card
account at the time of collection of the vehicle with most
suppliers unless specified in your quote.
Some clients may wish to use their
own travel insurance (for example, through their credit card
company) to cover the Excess/Liability on the rental vehicle.
In regards to using insurance from
another source, the rental companies will still require you
to cover their $5000 to $7,500 Excess/Liability up front.
This is because the insurance
cover is between you and the independent source, not the rental
company and the insurer.
company the supplier will only accept payment of the Bond
with a credit card (and your card will be debited immediately).
If the vehicle is returned safely, this money will be refunded
back to you. If the vehicle is damaged in any way (regardless
of whom is at fault), you will be liable for the first $5000,
$6000 or $7,500 worth of damage. If this occurred you
as the 'hirer' would then have to claim these said expenses
back from your credit card (insurance broker independently).
Please check the finer details with your credit card company
and insurance broker to ensure that they cover which vehicle
is applicable to your rental such as 4WD campers, 4WD Cars,
2WD Cars, 4WD Camper Trailers, Campervans and Motorhomes.
Please also note if your providinga bond of let's say $7,500
on a overseas credit card and it's a long rental and during
this time the Australian dollars fluctuates then this will
be reflects when your bond is returned and this clause is
standard in terms.
