General Business and Rental Terms

1. Signing of contract and execution of the journey
The lease agreement is concluded exclusively with the "Camper-Rent-24"

GM-Leasing & Fuhrparkmanagement GmbH,
represented by the executive Director Frank Sacher,
Mittenwalderstr. 49, D-82431 Kochel am See.

The local service provision and transfer of the vehicles is done via one of the indicated service stations.

The basis for the rent of a camper is a rent contract for the respective vehicle and not a total of travel services of a travel operator.

The lessee plans and executes his journey by him/herself and uses the vehicle in his own responsibility - therefore regulations of the Travel Contract Law are not applying. Also, the takeover and return protocol, which has to be filled in entirely and signed by the person renting the vehicle and the service station, is a part of the rental contract.

2. Minimum age
The minimum age of the lessee and the driver has to be 21 years. The driving license of the (old) class 3 respectively the class B has to be owned by the persons renting the vehicle and the driver or at least one year. At collection of the vehicle the lessee and / or the driver have to deposit a copy of the driving license and also have to assure that at collection they neither are forbidden to drive a vehicle nor that the driving license has been withdrawn.

3. Rental prices
The prices of the price list valid at contract close are valid. The rental prices include the following:

  • Fully comprehensive cover with an excess of Euro 1,000.- per incident
  • Partially comprehensive cover with an excess of Euro 1,000.- per incident
  • Third party insurance with unlimited cover (100 Mil. general for personal damages, damages to property and asset damages, Euro 8 Mil. per injured person)
  • Maintenance services and repairs for wear and tear

In case of damage we will charge a handling fee for the processing costs (Damage Processing Fee) in the amount of € 25.00. The tenant is free to prove that no damage was incurred or is significantly lower than the flat rate levied.

The staff of our service station will offer to do additional provisioning trips for Euro 25.- per started hour. These fees are to be paid directly to our staff at the service station.

Expenses for fuel and costs of operation are at the responsibility of the lessee. The vehicles will be handed over fully fueled and have to be fully fuelled when they are returned. Missing fuel will be noted in the return protocol, filled up by the service station and an additional fee of Euro 25.- will be charged.

The rental prices are always valid from station until return to the station. One-way rentals are offered on request. The respective season's prices will be charged respective to the utilization by the lessee.

If the vehicle is returned after the time agreed on in writing, we will charge Euro 25.- additionally per started hour (but at most one total day's price for each late day) and will relay any compensation claims claimed by the succeeding lessee or other persons because of late collection of the vehicle.

In the case of continued use of the vehicle after the return date agreed on there is generally no agreement with the renter to the automatic change to a rental contract for an unlimited time. We already disagree with a further usage.

If a vehicle is returned before the end of the rental period agreed on the fully rental price agreed on in the contract is payable, except when the vehicle can be rented out otherwise. There is also a rental minimum period according to the currently valid price list for specific travel periods. We will charge a one-time service fee for each rental. The lessee is responsible for any fees, taxes and fines caused by usage of the vehicle, which are charged to the lessor, except if they have been caused by fault of the lessor.

The confirmed reservation can rebooked by the lessee until latest 3 days before the agreed start date of the rent, as long as there are other capacities available. For such a rebooking Camper-Rent-24 is charging a handling fee of Euro 50.- per rebooking.
