Escape Campervans are very popular, especially over summer (November to March). You can secure your camper with just a $300 deposit, so go for it!

And for more info, click on the title bar below:

Deposits and Payment

  • When you make a reservation with Escape Rentals, a deposit of NZ$300 is required to secure the booking. This is a secure payment made online via credit card. You then simply pay the balance and any other costs when you collect your vehicle (extra insurance, optional accessories etc.). Escape Rentals accepts Mastercard and Visa credit and debit cards and NZ currency. There is a 2% surcharge when you pay by credit card (on the balance -not the $300 deposit), but we’ll waive this if you take additional vehicle insurance with us.
  • Speaking of insurance, check out the three options available here. If you choose option A (‘Roll the dice’) you will need to ensure you have sufficient funds available on your credit card to enable us to freeze your bond ($3,000). This is transacted when you collect your vehicle and unfrozen again at the end of your journey when the van is returned as per our agreement.

Rate Calculations

Escape Campervans operate with seasonal pricing. If your intended travel dates cross over two different rate periods, your rental will be charged based on the number of days of campervan hire incurred in each period and will take into account the long term hire discounts. Remember, rates are based on a per calendar day basis, NOT on a 24 hour basis. Use our online ‘Instant quotes and bookings’ calculator to work out how much you’ll have to pay.

Cancellations

Once Escape Campers has confirmed a booking and the hirer has paid a deposit, that booking is subject to the following cancellation policy:

  • If you cancel your confirmed Escape reservation more than 22 days before your scheduled pick up date, we will refund your deposit in full.
  • If you cancel your confirmed Escape reservation within 7 to 21 days before your scheduled pick up date, you will be charged a cancellation fee of $300 (lose your deposit) or 20% of your total hire cost, whichever is higher.
  • If you cancel your confirmed Escape reservation within 1 to 6 days before your scheduled pick up date, you will be charged a cancellation fee of 50% of your total gross rental cost.
  • If you cancel your confirmed Escape reservation on day of pick up, or you ‘no-show’, then you will be charged 100% of your gross rental cost.
  • If you return your Escape Campervan early for any reason whatsoever after travel has commenced, then no refund is available.

  • If you collect your Escape Campervan later than your booked/scheduled pick up date, there is no refund for any used unused days and any unused days cannot be transferred to the end of the hire

Hire Period

As mentioned above, Escape Campervans rates are charged on a calendar day basis. If you pick up your camper at midday on Saturday and drop it off at midday on Sunday, this hire would be calculated as two days hire, not 24 hours.  This is because campervans take some time to groom and prepare. This is standard within the wider New Zealand campervan industry.

Minimum Hire Periods

Escape campervans have minimum hire periods as follows:

  • Summer (Travelling 01 October to 30 April):  7 Days
  • Winter (Travelling 01 May to 30 September):  7 Days if insurance is purchased, 10 Days if no insurance is purchased
  • Minimum one way hire between Auckland and Christchurch (or Christchurch and Auckland) is 14 Days – Be safe. Don’t rush! :)

What else do I need to pay for?

Other than general costs associated with your trip (like your daily hire, petrol, food, entertainment, attractions and activities, campgrounds etc) there are a couple of optional costs you need to be aware of:

  • Optional insurance excess reduction options – Click here to see all our available insurance options.
  • Optional accessory items (picnic table, BBQ, self contained van option etc) – Click here to see all our available accessory items.
  • One way hire fees and remote depot fees (subject to hire type)
  • And that’s about it! See, there really are no hidden costs.
