What are my insurance options?
Rest assured, we have two insurnace options. Choosing one of our two options is mandatory to rent from us:
What does the damage deposit cover?
Renters will be responsible for any damage to the vehicle, both exterior (tires and body) and the interior contents while the vehicle is in their possession. It is the renter’s responsibility to thoroughly check the campervan prior to leaving the premises of Nomad HC, for any damage not recorded on the “vehicle condition report”. The report will be reviewed with the customer during the van tour and then emailed to the customer shortly after check-in. We also highly recommend that Renters take time stamped photos as well. Renters authorize Nomad HC to charge the credit card on file for the full cost of damages plus applicable service or potential loss of revenue fees.
What happens in the event of an accident or breakdown?
If it's an emergency, call 911 immediately.
If an accident occurs, please refer to your Rental Agreement and contact us as soon as possible. If the campervan breaks down or requires a tow, please call roadside assistance. If you purchased roadside assistance for your reservation, then you are covered. If you did not purchase roadside assistance, you must still call roadside assistance are cover the cost of the service.
If there is a mechanical failure of an internal component of the campervan, we will do our best to repair the problem via phone support and get you on your way as quickly as possible. We may send someone if we can fix the problem on site and you are within 200 kms of the office.
If there is a catastrophic failure which is no fault of the customer we will re-book the customer free of charge. If a customer does not wish to be re-booked, we will refund the remainder of your trip. If the failure is a result of the customers actions or negligence, the damages will be taken from the customers damage deposit. If the damages are major, the customer will not be permitted another van.
If the issue is a minor inconvenience and the van still operates safely (water leak, electrical issue, heat or AC failure) customers can choose to continue their reservation and Nomad HC will offer a discount for the inconvenience and lack of amenities.
Cancellation and rebooking policy
Nomad HC understands that plans change and unexpected emergencies happen. If you need to cancel, we follow the guidlines of our booking provider (RVezy):
If cancelled by the Renter more than 30 days from the date of rental: The renter will receive a full refund of the deposit that was paid minus the RVezy service fee and its tax applied to the rental amount. The owner's calendar will be unblocked for those dates and they are free to accept another rental.
In response to COVID-19 protocols, owner cancellations for the bookings falling under the COVID-19 policy highlighted in Italics below will be treated the same as any other cancellation and the renter will be refunded in travel credits to be used at a future date.
The above applies as long as the time of cancellation is more than 24 hours from the trip start date.
Please note that the 24-hour timeline is strict to the exact time of the first payment.
Can I bring a pet?
Yes! we allow dogs. Since we clean and sanitize each campervan from top to bottom after each use, there’s a small $25 cleaning fee to account for the extra hair, dirt, dander, drool and odor. Any damage such as chewing, scratching, pooping or peeing inside the van or scratching outside of the van is considered damage and will be taken from the damage deposit in addition to the $25 cleaning fee. Dogs are not to be left unattending in the van.
