(1) The cardholder must present the card.
(2) Cards that do not include a chip are to be drawn through the reading device (e.g. POS terminal), (“magnetic strip transactions”). Cards that are furnished with a chip are firstly to be placed in the chip reading device of a POS terminal that is certified for chip card transactions: the terminal shows whether the cardholder must provide a signature for the transaction (a “chip with signature transaction”) or whether he or she must enter his or her PIN (a “chip and PIN transaction“). Insofar as you do not have access to an EMV-enabled terminal, for a transaction with a card which is furnished with a chip, you are to adhere to all the conditions for a magnetic strip transaction.
a) For a chip and PIN transaction, ask the cardholder to enter his or her PIN into the electronic PIN pad (customer operated unit). You must obtain our authorisation in accordance with Number 10. Insofar as a chip and PIN transaction cannot be carried out due to a technical problem (in this case the POS terminal displays an error message), the transaction must take place in accordance with the instructions for magnetic strip transactions. If the chip and PIN transaction is rejected by us, the transaction may not be carried out and the cardholder must immediately be informed of this by you.
b) In the case of a magnetic strip transaction or a chip with signature transaction, you are to get the cardholder to sign the billing charge slip which is printed out by the POS terminal. You must obtain our authorisation in accordance with Number 10. If a transaction is rejected by us, you may not carry out the transaction and the cardholder must immediately be informed of this.
c) Insofar as the terminal cannot read the magnetic strip of the card and the chip is unreadable, you must
• manually enter the transaction information and the expiry date of the card into the POS terminal in order to obtain our authorisation and
• get the cardholder to sign the billing charge slip which the POS terminal has printed out, and
• generate an impression of the card on a manual billing charge slip with the imprinting machine as proof of the presentation of the card.
(3) The card, in particular the signature area, may not be visibly altered or damaged.
(4) You must adhere to all the conditions of this contract and the other technical instructions, of which we inform you at our discretion.
(5) If your POS terminal authorised by American Express malfunctions, you must also
a) obtain telephone authorisation in accordance with Number 10 (1), sentence 3;
b) check whether the card is being used within the valid dates given on the front of the card (excluded are Prepaid Cards, on which the expiry date is not given), and
c) generate an impression of the card on a manual billing charge slip with the imprinting machine as proof of the presentation of the card.
(6) Insofar as you have access to a POS terminal authorised by American Express (or another POS solution), you are obliged to carry out the handling of the billing charge, regardless of the amount of the transaction (“nil limit”), electronically and online.
(7) The card must be presented up to and including the expiry date imprinted on the front of the card. Decisive is the end of the month which corresponds to the first of the two numbers given in the expiry date (example: the detail 11.10or 11/10 corresponds to the expiry date 30.11.2010).
(8) Insofar as you have to obtain the signature of the cardholder in accordance with the above conditions, the signature on the billing charge slip must correspond to the name imprinted on the front of the card and with the signature on the back of the card. Excepted from this are Prepaid Cards, on which no name is imprinted on the card; in respect of these Prepaid Cards, the signature on the billing charge slip must only correspond to that on the card.
(9) The person who presents the card must be the person whose name is imprinted on the front of the card.
(10) The number imprinted on the front of the card must correspond to the number printed on the back of the card and the number on the electronically generated billing charge slip.
(11) You may not be notified of a blocking of the card.
(12) If a suspicion arises, according to the circumstances, that a case of credit card misuse is involved (see Number 8 (7)), you are obliged to notify the American Express authorisation service by telephone and to only accept the card if American Express issues you with the relevant instruction.
8. What to Do in the Event of an Accident
8.1 After an accident, theft or damage by fire or collision with a wild animal, the police must be informed immediately and also the rental station (for Telephone Number see rental contract), at the latest immediately after the working day following the day of the accident/incident. It is not permitted to accept any third-party claims as valid.
8.2 Even in the case of very slight damage, the Hirer must prepare a detailed written report for the Rental Firm, including a sketch. If, for whatever reason, the renter fails to draw up such report and if, because of that, the insurance company refuses to pay the damage, the renter shall be obliged to pay full compensation for the damage.
8.3 The accident report must, in particular, include the names and addresses of anyone involved and any witnesses, together with the license numbers of all vehicles involved and has to be over handed filled out and signed by drop off latest towards Rental Firm.

10.1 Any claims to compensation by the Hirer on the basis of defects for which the Rental Firm is not responsible are hereby excluded.
10.2 Any defects in the motorhome or its fittings/equipment which are discovered after the commencement of the hire must be reported to the Rental Firm in writing by the Hirer by returning of the vehicle. Claims for damages based on subsequently notified defects shall be excluded unless the claim is based on a defect which is not patent.
11. Repairs, substitute vehicle
11.1 Repairs which are necessary in order to maintain the vehicle in a good working and roadworthy condition during the rental period may be ordered by the Hirer up to € 150.00 without consultation. Repairs going beyond this may only be ordered with the consent of the Rental Firm. The Rental Firm will bear repair costs on production of the original invoices and the parts replaced, as long as the Hirer is not liable for the damage pursuant to Section 12 below. This does not apply to tyre damage.
11.2 If a defect for which the Rental Firm is responsible makes such a repair necessary, and if the Hirer does not rectify the defect on his own initiative, the Hirer must notify the Rental Firm of the defect immediately and set a reasonable deadline for its repair. Any circumstances specific to a particular country (e.g. infrastructure) which delay the repair must be taken into account here to avoid disadvantage to the Rental Firm.
11.3 If the motorhome is destroyed without any fault on the part of the Hirer or if it appears likely that its use will be prevented or withdrawn for an unreasonably long time, the Rental Firm will be entitled to supply the Hirer with an equivalent substitute vehicle within a reasonable period. If the Rental Firm supplies an equivalent substitute vehicle, any termination by the Hirer pursuant to § 543 Para. II No. 1 German Civil Code [BGB]) is excluded. If in such a case the Rental Firm offers a motorhome from a lower price class and this is accepted by the Hirer, the Rental Firm will reimburse to the Hirer the difference between this and the price already paid in advance by the Hirer.
11.4 If the motorhome is destroyed due to the renter’s fault or if it is foreseeable that its use will be prevented or made impossible for an unreasonably long period due to the renter’s fault, the rental firm may refuse to make a replacement vehicle available. In such a case, termination of the contract by the renter is excluded according to § 543 Subsec. II No.1 BGB. If the rental firm provides a replacement vehicle, it can charge the renter with the transfer costs incurred.
12. Hirer‘s liability, insurance
12.1 In line with the principles of the comprehensive insurance, the lessor exempts the renter from all responsibilities under civil law in exchange for a security deposit to be provided by the renter in the amount of € 1,500.00 for each event of damage or loss. There shall not be a possibility to exclude the deposit. The deposit must be paid upon collection of the vehicle and will be reimbursed as soon as the vehicle has been returned unless damage has been done for which the renter is responsible pursuant to the regulations of section 12.3. In the case of theft the rental station reserves itself the right to calculate 10% of the value of the vehicle up to a maximum of € 5.000.
12.2 The indemnity against liability described in Subsection 12.1 will not apply if the Hirer causes a loss/damage deliberately or by gross negligence.
12.3 If the Hirer causes loss/damage culpably, he will additionally be liable in the following cases:
- if loss/damage was caused by impaired ability to drive due to drugs or alcohol
- if the Hirer or a driver to whom the Hirer has supplied the vehicle leaves the site of an accident without justification
- if the Hirer fails to call the police to an accident, contrary to the obligation imposed by Section 8, unless this breach of obligation does not affect either the establishment of the cause of the loss/damage or of its amount
- if the Hirer breaches any other obligations imposed by Section 8, unless this breach of obligation does not affect either the establishment of the cause of the loss/damage or of its amount
- if loss/damage is due to usage prohibited by Subsection 7.1
- if loss/damage is due to a breach of an obligation imposed by Subsection 7.2
- if loss/damage is caused by an unauthorised driver to whom the Hirer has supplied the vehicle
- if loss/damage is due to a failure to take account of the vehicle’s dimensions (height German Road Traffic Regulations [StvO] Signal 265, with German Road Traffic Regulations [StvO] Signal 264 or equivalent country signs.
- if loss/damage is due to a failure to comply with load regulations
12.4 To avoid increasing costs due to expenses incurred to establish the amount of the damage suffered, the Rental Firm will in the event of accident damage initially supply the Hirer on request with sample invoices for the type of case concerned.
12.5 The Hirer is liable for all fees, charges, fines, and penalties imposed upon the Rental Firm in connection with the use of the vehicle unless these are incurred due to the fault of the Rental Firm.
12.6 More than one Hirer will be generally and severally liable.
13. Rental Firm‘s liability, expiry by limitation
13.1 The Rental Firm bears unlimited liability for deliberate action and gross negligence. In the case of simple negligence the Rental Firm is only liable for foreseeable loss/damage typical of the type of contract concerned where there is a breach of an obligation the meeting of which is of particular importance for the achievement of the purpose of the contract (cardinal obligation). This standard of liability also applies in cases of obstacles to performance at the time of the conclusion of the contract.
13.2 The above limitations and exclusions of liability do not apply to claims under the terms of the German Product Liability Act or to claims based on injury to life, limb or health or infringements of liberty.
13.3 Claims which are not excluded according to paragraph 13.1 but were only limited in scope shall become statute-barred within a year of the end of the year of the claim being created and the circumstances justifying the claim and the debtor’s identity being disclosed to the creditor or the creditor, without gross negligence, being considered to be aware of such circumstances or identity. With the exception of claims for damages which are based on loss of life, physical injury, health hazards or the loss of freedom and claims based on the product liability act, claims for damages shall become statute-barred - with no consideration being given as to whether the creditor was aware of the circumstances and identity or, without gross negligence, should have been aware of such circumstances and identity - within five years of the end of the year in which the claim was created.
13.4 The Supplier's booking conditions apply. These are provided at the rental depot during pick-up.
14. Legal venue
For all disputes associated with validity, interpretation, implementation and termination of the rental agreement, the place of jurisdiction of the respective hiring station or the registered office of the Supplier shall be exclusively competent.Terms of booking on this website

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 supplier's 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.
In booking on this website you acknowledge that we disclose your information to your selected Supplier in order to provide the requested rental services.
Please note that some suppliers 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 supplier. In addition to the alteration policy of the supplier stated in their terms, the following charges will apply:
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 vehicle supplier 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.
We are committed to providing a quality service and aim for complete customer satisfaction. In the event of cancellation, any refunds or penalties are detailed in the terms and conditions of your selected vehicle that you are asked to read and accept at time of booking. In the event you are unsatisfied with our 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 operator of the vehicle.
