Deposit, Cancellation and Refund Policy
Our policy for accepting deposits, cancellations and processing refunds varies branch by branch and by vehicle type. The policy will be detailed on the quote and confirmation email you receive and we recommend that you check with the branch you are hiring from if you have any queries.
Here is a general guide:
1. After the hire has commenced then as per the Terms and Conditions of Hire (the Rental Agreement). The following also applies and is to be read in conjunction with the Terms and Conditions of Hire and is detailed fully below:
(a) In the event of an accident there is NO OBLIGATION to either supply another vehicle or provide a refund for the balance of the hire term. Providing a replacement vehicle is entirely at the branches discretion, but if the accident is not the hirers' or nominated drivers' fault then we may provide a replacement (subject to availability), again this is at our discretion.
(b) In the event that the hirer wishes to terminate early, there is NO OBLIGATION to provide a refund for the balance of the hire period.
2. Some but not all locations require a minimum 10% deposit of the total hire value or a minimum of $100 including GST (whichever is the greatest). This may be taken at time of booking although not all locations require this. A 20% non-refundable deposit is required at time of booking for specialist vehicles (4WD’s, Minibus, Cargo Vans etc.), again not every location requires this, please check with the location chosen.
In the event that you cancel your reservation, a cancellation fee may apply as follows (however this policy does vary branch by branch and by vehicle type):
(a) Cancellation within seven (7) days of the hire commencing, 10% cancellation fee, ie. no refund of 10% deposit, or where a deposit was not charged then a fee equal to 10% of the hire value will be payable.
(b) Cancellation prior to seven (7) days of the hire commencing, FULL REFUND/NO CANCELLATION FEE.
(c) A full or partial refund may be granted solely at the branches discretion. "No Show" customers will receive No Refund - see below.
3. Cancellation advice or Refund request MUST be received by us in writing (includes emails). A response WILL be sent to you confirming cancellation of the hire and where applicable details of any charges made under this policy.
4. In the event of a "No-Show" following a confirmed booking being made, including bookings made through the website booking process or via telephone NO REFUND will be provided.
5. Van and Mini-Coach Bookings:
A deposit of 10-20% of the total hire value or a minimum of $200.00 including GST, WILL be taken on all Van and Mini-Coach Bookings.
