Price Calculation
In order to be flexible and able to react quickly to supply and demand, Cruise America offers you flex-rates. The rate for the first rental day will be the same for up to 35 days. For longer rentals, the flex rate is recalculated after every 35 days. These rates are calculated new every week, once the occupancy rates of the respective vehicles for the different rental locations have been determined.

CAUTION! Any changes to your reservation have to be requested and approved by the tour operator. This may result in a new calculation of the Flex-Rate which can lead to a change in the rental amount. This also applies to name changes, date of vehicle pick-up, location of vehicle pick-up, and/or change of vehicle type.
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

9-7 days before pick-up: 75%

Insurance
A CDW/VIP insurance (deductible of USD 1.000 per claim) and a supplemental liability insurance up to max. USD 10 million are already included in the rental price; therefore the need for an additional supplemental insurance is void. Coverage includes the following items with a deductible of USD 1.000 per claim: Damages from accidents (including on campgrounds, parking lots, and gas stations), theft of the vehicle, fire, vandalism, damages incurred without the involvement of a second vehicle, (e.g. damages from backing up the vehicle, damages to the undercarriage or roof extension), damages to the wheels (tires and rims). NOT covered are damages caused due to disregard of the rental terms & conditions of the rental company (e.g. driving on gravel, forest, and other non public roads, trips into Death Valley between May and September, etc.), damages caused due to gross negligence-, unauthorized usage of the vehicle-, or driving of the vehicle by an unauthorized driver, and damages resulting from the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medications.
If you book the Super-Saver-PLUS and Super-Inclusive-PLUS packages, HanseMerkur Reiseversicherung AG will reimburse you for the deductible withheld from you once you return home!

This is also applicable up to the maximum amount of the deductible for the following damages:
  • Damages to glass
  • Damages to the undercarriage & roof extension
  • Damages to wheels (tires, rims)
  • Damages caused due to backing up the vehicle
Course of Action in Case of an Accident:
In case of damages these steps must be followed:
  • Immediate notification of the police and the creation of a police report if any third party is involved, or vandalism occurred
  • Immediate notification of the rental company
  • Creation of a signed damage report by the rental company upon return of the vehicle
  • Request of a final bill of the claims settlement (which might not be created until after your departure)

To receive reimbursement of your deductible, please send the following documents in their entirety to this address:
HanseMerkur Reiseversicherung

  • Copy of the rental agreement
  • Proof of payment of the security deposit (payment receipt or credit card print-out showing the charge)
  • Final bill of the claims settlement
  • FTI reservation number and booking confirmation
Under the following circumstances the reimbursement of the deductible is not possible:
  • Damages caused due to disregard of the rental terms & conditions
  • Damages caused due to improper handling of the rental vehicle
  • Damages caused due to gross negligence or being under the influence of alcohol/medications/drugs
  • If the vehicle key is lost or damaged

  • Follow-up costs such as for hotel stays, telephone, or towing
  • Damages which have been excluded from the vehicle insurance by the rental company
Security Deposit
The security deposit of USD 500 (For renting from 22.08. - 27.08.2018 in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland or Salt Lake City the deposit is USD 1000) is applicable per occurrence or incident and can ONLY be rendered with a valid credit card. "Prepaid cards" are not accepted! The security deposit will be charged to your credit card at the time of pick-up and will be refunded when the vehicle is returned. Due to exchange rate fluctuations, it is possible that a slight (non-refundable) difference between the security deposit rendered and the refund will occur; this amount cannot be requested for refund from the intermediary, tour operator, and/or travel agency. Please make sure you have a sufficient credit line available on your credit card. The security deposit is payable per occurrence or incident. In case of further damages to the rental vehicle or property of a third party, a subsequent security deposit will be charged to you for the remaining rental days, in order to cover any deductible that may arise from any additional future accidents.
Deductible
The deductible is applicable independent from the question of fault and will be owed to the rental company by the renter. The deductible will be charged per occurrence or incident.
Further Notices
All credit card charges are conducted in the American dollar. Due to exchange rate fluctuations it is possible that a slight (non-refundable) difference between the security deposit rendered and the refund will occur; this amount cannot be requested for refund from the intermediary, tour operator, and/or travel agency. The renter is responsible for all fees, duties, fines, and penalties which are incurred due to the usage of the rental vehicle, unless they arise from the rental company's actions. If you incur monetary fines for speeding, parking tickets, and/or undisclosed accidents/damages to the rental vehicle, the rental company will charge these costs plus a fee of USD 250 to your credit card.
The insurances offered by the rental company do not include any carefree personal protection for bodily injuries and luggage; therefore it is strongly recommended that you purchase a travel accident, travel health, and baggage insurance.
Driver License
A valid, national driver license (in Germany class 3 i.e. EU-driver license class B) is required and sufficient. An international driving permit is recommended, but is only valid in conjunction with a valid national driver license and will not be accepted on its own.
Minimum Age
Minimum age requirement of the driver is 21 years of age.
Additional Driver
Additional drivers can be registered at the rental location without extra charges. All persons, who will drive the rental vehicle, will have to be entered into the rental agreement.
Required Documents for Vehicle Pick-up
In order to pick-up your vehicle, you will need the respective valid national driver license, your passport, a credit card, and the voucher from FTI.

Or, unlimited usage may be prepaid or purchased at departure at a rate of USD 7 per rental day. The generator is not required for normal vehicle operation. (Applicable for all vehicle models)

Camping Chairs
Camping chairs are available for USD 9 per RENTAL. However, due to the cyclical nature of the business, availability of camping chairs cannot be guaranteed 100% of the time. During high volume rental periods, we may be unable to provide chairs. In this case, we will provide clients with instructions on where to find reasonably priced alternatives. Additional extras, such as camping tables, bicycles, etc., may not be available at all locations.
Child Safety Seats
Child Safety Seats for children up to 8 years of age, i.e. under 40 lbs (ca. 18 kg), are mandatory in the USA. Cruise America does not offer any child safety seats or infant car seats for rent.
Driving Restrictions
Generally not allowed are:
  • Driving on gravel, forest, and other non-public roads
  • Driving into Manhattan (New York City)
  • Driving into Mexico
Driving into Death Valley is allowed, but between the months of May and September, this is done at your own risk due to extreme high temperatures. There will be no insurance coverage during those months! You are allowed to drive into Canada, but you will have to return the vehicle to the booked drop-off location in the USA. Driving in Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Newfoundland is only allowed on all public/numbered roads (e.g. Taylor Hwy. No. 5, Top of the World Hwy. No. 9 from Tok to Dawson City). Back roads as, e.g. Dalton Highway or the road from Chitna to Kennicot McCarthy, are generally not allowed to be driven on.
Winter Notices
Please note that 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. Should temperatures below the freezing point be expected, all pipes, water and chemical tanks will have to be emptied. If freezing temperatures are expected, the rental company will already "winterize" the vehicle before your departure, to prevent freezing of pipes and tanks, by emptying them. "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. 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.

Model Guarantee - Vehicle Type
You may find the model reserved to be inadequate for your party. Where possible, upgrades to a larger sized model will be allowed at a charge determined from local posted rates. Cruise America'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 Cruise America. 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.
Final Cleaning
You agree to return the vehicle in the same condition as it was received, excluding normal wear and tear. Depending on local conditions, a cleaning fee, for vehicles which are heavily soiled inside, and/or waste tank evacuation fee, may be assessed at vehicle return up to USD 150; fuel & propane gas tanks will also have to be filled. You will pay for damages or loss of equipment. There are no refunds for early returns.
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 free 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. 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 Cruise even if the damage is only minimal. IMPORTANT: If the renter omits the immediately 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 75 can be done without the rental company's permission and will be reimbursed once the vehicle is returned. Repairs and expenditures above USD 75 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 & the subsequent necessary repairs - through no fault of the renter (mechanical breakdown*, no accident) - Cruise will reimburse costs up to USD 30 per person per day for lodging and transport (maximum up to USD 3.000).

*mechanical breakdown - damages that will not be eligible for reimbursement are: Problems with the radio/cassette player/CD, TV, video, microwave, A/C, fridge, all appliances such as stove, grill, etc., water pump, shower and toilets, generator, automated stairs, cruise control, and GPS.
Pets
Please indicate at the time of booking if you want to bring a pet. The renter is responsible for the final cleaning of the vehicle, otherwise a fee of USD 250 will be charged; in addition, the renter assumes all liability for damages caused by pets.
Ferry Bookings
We suggest that you book any ferry rides well in advance and always for a 30ft. vehicle, in case you will be provided with a bigger vehicle than you reserved. We will be happy to place reservations for the Inside Passage on board the BC Ferries for you.
Important Notice
All provisions listed have been compiled in good faith for your information. This is an excerpt of the provisions provided by the rental company and further terms & regulations will become part of the rental agreement between you and the rental company. You will receive a comprehensive version of the rental terms & conditions of the rental company at the time of pick-up. We cannot take responsibility for any variances from this text to the latest updated version of the rental company's rental terms & conditions.
Tolls
Some roads in the USA are Toll roads. These roads are subject to a Toll fee. For many Toll roads, cash is no longer accepted as form of payment and can only be paid for through an electronic device.
Cruise America now offers a payment solution when you are driving on parts of the Golden Gate Bridge in California, or the Homestead Extension of the Florida Turnpike. Cameras will automatically take a picture of the license tag from the vehicle passing through a Toll station. The bill will be sent to Cruise America. In some cases, the bill will be forwarded to you. You would receive a bill directly from the Toll Authority including their billing information. If the bill is send directly to your address, please pay the amount due directly to the Golden Gate Bridge or the Miami Homestead.
In some cases, it is not possible to bill you directly. If this occurs, you will receive the bill from Cruise America. A service charge of USD 10 applies if billing is handled through Cruise America.
Cruise America will automatically bill the credit card on file that was used at vehicle pick-up.

5 Simple Steps to Booking a Motorhome

1. Select a Motorhome Rental Company Pfeil

There are four major motorhome rental providers in the United States. You have the choice between Cruise America, El Monte RV, Road Bear, and Britz. These are all well established, renowned business with many years of experience in the motorhome rental industry.

2. Select your Travel Season Pfeil

The various packages and rates offered by the rental car company are divided into two rental seasons – Summer and Winter. In order to best research the motorhome possibilities, you need to select in which timeframe you would like to travel. Hint: There are several Early-Bird discounts! This means that the earlier you book, the better the specials (and availability).

3. Choosing your MotorhomePfeil

After you have decided on a rental company and travel season, it is time to select a vehicle. Choosing the right motorhome size is the most important part of a motorhome vacation! 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!
