All packages include basic insurance cover with an excess of AUD 8,000. You are able to reduce this excess by purchasing additional insurance when picking up the vehicle. Details of these costs will be included in our offer.

Alternatively you can book the Premium Package which includes the comprehensive insurance cover and additional included items. Only the Premium Package covers single vehicle accidents, towing/rescue costs and damage to windscreen and tyres.

As a another alternative, we also offer our Standard Plus Package, which is coverage from a German insurance policy. Information on this "Exclusion Policy" can be found within our offer or on our website.

Damage to the roof structure and the underbody will be charged up to $8,000, even if additional insurance is purchased.

Insurance will not cover damage caused by negligence; salt water or driving through flooded areas; using wrong or contaminated fuel; awnings; or personal belongings.

Combined Rentals:

Multiple rentals can be combined within 3 months to receive long term discounts for all rentals, providing all bookings are made at the same time.

Price Calculation:

Rental days are calculated on a calendar day basis. When calculating the number of days the Vehicle is rented, the day of pick up is counted as day one of the Rental Period, regardless of pick up time. The day of the Vehicle’s return is counted as the final day of the Rental Period regardless of the return time.

Driving Locations:

The Vehicle is not permitted to be driven below the high tide mark, on any unformed track, the Canning Stock Route, Fraser Island and the Old Telegraph Track section of Cape York. RedSands may restrict vehicle movements in certain areas due to adverse road or weather conditions, and the distance to nominated destinations in relation to the length of the Rental Period.

Pick up and drop off of the vehicle is possible at the specified depot within the depot hours, which you are able to find on our website. Transfers are not included.

General Information:

The rental company reserves to the right to provide a similar sized or larger vehicle with all the same features and inclusions should circumstances deem this necessary (eg, if the allocated vehicle was damaged immdiately before you hire). Any additional costs regarding a larger vehicle such as fuel and ferry costs are at your expense.

The rental company reserves the right to charge administration fees for the handling of any traffic fines issued during your hire. All fines must be settled directly with the issuing authority.

You are required to monitor oil and water levels of the vehicle. Please keep the receipt should you be required to purchase engine oil and this will be refunded to you at the end of your hire.

The 4WD Camper must be returned in a clean condition. This includes the kitchen (all plates and utensils must be washed and in clean condition), roof top tents and vehicle. Clients can opt to pay a minimum cleaning fee of $250 should they wish to return the vehicle dirty. This fee may be increased if the vehicle is deemed to be returned in exceptionally poor condition. This will be determined by the check in staff upon return.

All RedSands Campers vehicles are fitted with vehicle tracking equipment that captures data such as location, kilometres travelled and speed of travel. This information is collected and used for fleet management purposes and client safety.
