Any vehicles bogged down in areas not covered by HEMA maps are at the cost of recovery and liability to the client.
If the customer wishes to extend the rental whilst on hire they must first obtain permission from CampaboutOZ reservations who will advise the additional costs. Rental extension is subject to fleet availability. The extra cost must be paid by credit card on the day the extension confirmed either at our office or over the phone- failure to do so will result in renter being charged double the gross daily rate.
We reserve the right to charge the renter for any traffic violations, parking fines, speeding tickets or road toll fines, an additional $60 per fine will be incurred to cover the processing fee. If one of our vehicles is confiscated under the Anti Hoon laws in WA then the renter is responsible for the costs i.e. off road 28 days, next rental lost, compensation, etc.
CHANGE OF VEHICLE
Should the vehicle booked be unavailable through unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to substitute to an alternative vehicle without prior notification and at no extra cost. This shall not constitute a breach of contract and does not entitle the renter to a refund.
LIMIT OF LIABILITY
In the event of no alternative vehicle being available to the renter our liability is limited to a refund of the hire charge or in the case of mechanical failure (unless caused by renter) the remainder of the hire period.
We reserve the right to refuse rental to a renter at our discretion without details or reasons.
In the unfortunate event of a mechanical breakdown, please ring our office in the 1st instance. If outside business hours please ring RAC breakdown assistance on 131111 quoting the vehicle rego. Please be aware, if the problem is not our liability eg, punctures ,tyre problems, flattened batteries etc, you will be responsible for all costs.

No refund for late pick up or early return. TRAVEL INSURANCE
We highly advise renters take out highest level of travel insurance available.
Personal injury- This vehicle has 3rd party insurance cover, it is likely that any other vehicle involved in an accident also has this same cover (3rd party). In the outcome of an accident, circumstances depending the renter may be entitled to claim for personal injury against the 3rd party insurance of the person responsible for the accident. The extent of the insurance differs from State to State and CampaboutOZ strongly recommends that all passengers take out their own personal travel insurance.
The vehicle is insured for damage to it or damage to the property of the 3rd party. However the renter is responsible: Up to the amount of the applicable liability for the cost of such damage to 3rd party property, or to the rented vehicle. The renters also responsible for the cost of demurrage for the period the vehicle is unavailable due to repairs. The liability applies in respect of each claim, not per rental. In addition to the liability: An administration fee of $75 will be charged per claim. The liability is applicable regardless of who is at fault and must be paid at the time the accident is reported to CampaboutOZ, not at the completion of the rental period. If a vehicle is damaged and undriveable, Campaboutoz are under no obligation to supply a replacement vehicle or refund any unused rental days.
‘CampaboutOZ’ rental charge includes a standard liability of $3500 per claim. A bond of $3500 will be collected at the time of entering into the rental contract. Payment of this bond is only accepted by credit card and unfortunately a 2% surcharge will apply. The $3500 will be debited to the credit card account immediately.
The standard Liability can be reduced by purchasing one of the following options:
REDUCTION OPTION 1
A Liability of $2000 per claim applies. This option can be purchased by paying to CampaboutOZ $20 per day. The maximum amount payable for this option per rental is $1000 – therefore 50 days rental.
A Bond of $2000 will be collected at the time of entering into the rental contract. Payment of this Bond is only accepted by credit card and again, a 2% surcharge will apply. The $2000 will be debited to the credit card account immediately.
REDUCTION OPTION 2
A $500 Liability per claim applies. This option can be purchased by paying CampaboutOZ $30 per day. The maximum amount payable for this option per rental is $1500- therefore 50 days rental. Under this option for rentals over 21 days one windscreen will be covered for accidental damage. Should these amounts be exceeded the cost to repair or replace the items will not be covered and will be the responsibility of the renter.
A bond of $1000 will be collected at the time of entering into the rental contract. This bond is payable to CampaboutOZ by an open signed credit card imprint with an authorisation obtained (sufficient funds must be available).
For security purposes, only a credit card can be used to provide a bond. The credit card holder must be present and able to sign for the Bond upon vehicle collection. The credit card holder is severally inclusively liable for any damage to the rental vehicle.
The bond is fully refundable when the vehicle is returned to the original location – or location as contractually states, full of fuel and all other terms of the Terms and Conditions been complied with. Should damage be present to the vehicle on its return, the bond will be used to cover the costs of repairs up to the amount of the liability. However is terms of the rental contract are breached and the bond not enough to cover damage than any other costs will apply.
The renter is responsible for the cost at all times for:
• Damage caused where terms of the Rental contract have been breached
• Any vehicles in unauthorised area
• Damage to the Awning, overhead, or under body of the vehicle
• Damage caused from the use of incorrect fuel or contaminated fuel
• Damage or loss to any personal possessions
• Damage caused to the vehicle when using the vehicle in contravention of any legislation or regulation controlling vehicular traffic
• Damage caused to the vehicle by the renters wilful conduct
• Damage caused due to a single vehicle rollover
• Damage caused to the vehicle in anyway by part or total water submersion or salt water
• Damage caused by negligence i.e. ignoring mechanical faults causing more severe damage
• Single vehicle accidents and accidents involving animals
• (Driving in darkness is incredibly dangerous in the Australian Outback)
