Rental period: 01.04.2018 to 31.03.2019

Price Calculation
The price calculation is determined by the applicable flex-rate for your pick-up date at the time of booking. The effective price on your pick-up date is decisive for the first 21 days of your rental period. For longer rentals, the flex rate is recalculated after every 21 days. The pick-up and drop-off day are calculated as one day (i.g. only the rental nights are counted just like with hotel bookings). Which flex-rate will be applicable for your desired vehicle model can be determined by means of a computation for your planned rental duration. The flex-rate depends on supply and demand and is re-calculated and updated weekly by the rental company.

IMPORTANT for bookings with flex-rates: Any changes to the booking will result in the cancellation of the existing booking and a placement of a new booking with current prices. The following changes will require a new booking:
  • Date change of the pick-up or drop-off day
  • Change of the pick-up or drop-off location
  • Change of the vehicle type
  • Name change
Cancellation Fees
Cancelling a confirmed motorhome reservation results in a cancellation fee. All motorhome bookings are subject to the cancellation fees outlined in the terms and conditions found here: GTC


TRANSLATION OF THE TOUR OPERATORS CANCELLATION FEES:
Cancellation Fees are determined by the number of days prior to vehicle pick up that a cancellation is made.
30+ days before pick-up: 25%

9-7 days before pick-up: 75%
6-3 days before pick-up: 80%

Winter Notices
Every vehicle will have to be "winterized" between the months of November and April (this time frame can vary depending on the weather conditions) in order to prevent freezing and frost damage. This is applicable for water pipes, waste water tanks, fresh water tanks, warm water heater and -tank, sinks, showers, and toilets. "Winterized" means that all water is drained from tanks and no more water is allowed to be added to the fresh-water tank as also no water hook-ups are allowed to be used. There is NO more water available in the vehicle. The renter will have to use water from bought water bottles at his/her own cost for e.g. drinking water. Sinks, showers and toilets cannot be used anymore. The toilet, however, can partially be used as long as it is flushed with a windshield antifreeze; in the case of a deep freeze, even this is not possible anymore and public bathrooms will have to be used. It is the sole responsibility of the renter to "winterize" the vehicle i.g. return the vehicle in "winterized" condition, in the event that the vehicle was not "winterized" when picked-up due to a warmer climate or if the "winterization" was reversed during the trip. In case of violation of this rule, regardless of the prevailing weather conditions at the time of return, a fee will be charged to the renter. The renter is responsible to the full extend for all damages caused to the vehicle due to under-cooling, frost, or freezing of tanks, warm water tank, and pipes. These costs are not covered by any insurance. Please bear in mind when planning your route, that in some areas camping sites close during the winter and some roads, especially in the mountains, could be impassable due to poor weather conditions.

The free-of-charge transfer bus will depart the rental location around 11:00 and will travel to the airport only (not hotels or other destinations). If you choose to use the free shuttle service, the motorhome has to be returned before 10:00 in order to allow sufficient time to complete the return process. With vehicle return in Vancouver/Seattle the transfer is only possible to the Vancouver airport. Please see notice for pick-up locations. If the rental vehicle is not returned at the contracted time & rental location, Best Time RV will charge a late fee of USD 30 per hour and the transfer to the airport will be void without reimbursement. There will be no refunds given for early returns of the vehicle. The vehicle has to have a full tank of fuel and be clean on the inside at the time it is returned. Waste water tanks have to be emptied, otherwise a fee will be charged. In case the vehicle is damaged at the time of return, the rental company will charge the renter additional fees accordingly.

Model Guarantee – Vehicle Type
Best Time RV's policy is to provide you with the model reserved. In some instances, circumstances may require an upgrade to a larger sized motor-home to accommodate an immediate departure. The upgrade will be provided at no charge to you and with no further liability to Best Time RV; any additional costs such as increased fuel consumption, ferry trips, or similar, are the responsibility of the renter and will not be reimbursed by Best Time RV. This does not entitle the renter to withdraw from the booking and also does not grant the right for compensation. Even though all vehicles are equipped in a comparable manner, slight differences among vehicles can occur. All measurements and sizing specifications are approximate values and are based on the information provided to us from the rental company; all information is subject to change.

Generally all vehicles are no more than 2 years old.
Final Cleaning
The rental company reserves the right to charge a cleaning fee for vehicles which are heavily soiled inside when they are returned (for the exterior there will only be a fee if the vehicle is extremely dirty). If the vehicle is equipped with toilets and waste water tanks, these will have to be emptied and fuel & propane tanks will have to be filled, otherwise a fee will incur.
Repairs – Breakdown Assistance
In case of accidents, problems, glitches or technical difficulties (even a flat tire!) you are required to immediately notify the rental company (they will provide you with more information and a toll fee hotline phone number at the time of booking). Contracted repair locations are made available to you nationwide.

Besides contacting the rental company (within 24 hrs), the renter is also responsible to notify the police immediately, once an accident, fire-, theft-, or wild game damage has happened. No third party claims may be recognized. The police report will have to indicate the names and addresses of all parties involved including any possible witnesses, and the license plate numbers of all vehicles affected. The renter has to present a detailed written report to Best Time RV even if the damage is only minimal.

IMPORTANT: If the renter omits the immediate notification, and the rental company does not have the opportunity to take any remedial action, the right to possible reimbursement will terminate. If accidents are not reported (see above), the insurance coverage will expire.

Small repairs and necessary expenditures up to USD 50 can be done without the rental company's permission and will be reimbursed once the vehicle is returned. Repairs and expenditures above USD 50, will have to be approved in advance by the rental company (otherwise no reimbursement is possible). All repairs are generally refundable only against receipts - the ground rule is: without a receipt, no refund!

Should the rental vehicle become inoperative for more than 12 hours, due to a breakdown and the subsequent necessary repairs, - through no fault of the renter (mechanical breakdown*, no accident), - Best Time RV will reimburse costs of up to USD 30 per person and day for lodging and transportation, up to a maximum of USD 3.000.

*Mechanical breakdown - damages that will not be eligible for reimbursement by Best Time RV are: Problems with the Radio/CD, TV, DVD-PLayer, microwave, A/C, fridge, all appliances such as stove, grill, etc., water pump, shower and toilets, generator, awning, automated stairs, cruise control, and GPS.

Remember that everyone needs their space. Packing the maximum number of people into a motorhome may spoil your dream vacation. We always recommend choosing a motorhome that sleeps more people than you are traveling with!

4. Choosing your Pick-Up and Drop-Off LocationsPfeil

When selecting your pick-up and drop-off locations it is always beneficial when they are the same. This increases the chances that the rental company will be able to confirm your reservation request and in addition they do not cary any extra fees.

Should you choose a pick-up and drop-off location that are not the same, please be aware that there will be an additional fee to be paid at the rental location known as a one-way fee. The further the locations are apart, the more costly this one-way fee becomes.

5. Choosing a Special Pfeil

Most rental companies offer special packages or discounts for certain rentals. Some of these include discounts for extended rentals of 21 days or more, others simply offer free extras like vehicle kits or navigational systems. Here its important too to book early, in order to save more!
