General Information:

Vehicle Type: The supplier will make every effort to provide you with the booked model, but reserves the right, in unforeseeable circumstances, to provide an equivalent or higher value vehicle at no extra cost if the booked model is unavailable for any reason. Any resulting additional costs such as fuel, ferry crossings etc will not be covered by us, nor the supplier. This does not entitle the renter to cancel the booking and there is no entitlement to compensation. Although all vehicles have comparable equipment, vehicle designs may have slight variations.

Fines and offenses: The supplier will charge the customer for fines for traffic offenses recieved during the duration of the booking. 

Peace of Mind Service : This will cover the costs of emergency tow service (first 50Km), jump-start, tire replacement (without tire costs), fuel delivery (up to 20 liters of fuel, fuel surcharge) and lock-out service.

Valet service : This includes cleaning the outside, cleaning the inside, last dishes, emptying tanks, waste disposal and recycling.

Animals: Service animals may travel in our RV with prior permission and proof of service certification, but pets are not allowed. Pets within the RV will be fined $500.00 to cover the costs of disinfection and cleaning.

Smoking: Smoking is not permitted in  mobile homes. A $500 sanction will be imposed in the RV to cover the costs of disinfection and cleaning.

Fuel: CanaDream does pay for fuel consumption. Vehicles are supplied with a tank that is at least 1/4 full. If the guest returns with less fuel level received at pick-up, they  will be charged for this amount of fuel. There is no refund if the customer returns with more fuel than at pick-up.

Cleaning fees: RVs must be returned to the station cleaned upon return, the interior cleaned and the waste tank containers emptied. The exterior of the RV does not require cleaning unless it is covered with excessive dirt or mud. Customers can purchase a cleaning service upon check-in to reduce the final cleaning charge if desired. Charges apply if the mobile home is not returned in the required condition.

Winterization:All motorhomes may not be driven in winter under freezing conditions, except for the unique MHA-Winter motorhome unit (2650) by CanaDream, which was built especially for winter conditions and allows the use of water, toilet and shower in freezing conditions. As the weather in Canada can be unpredictable, CanaDream will winterize the vehicles as soon as the temperatures fall into the freezing zone. Once the motorhome is winterized, no water can be filled into the fresh water tank and it can not be connected to the water supply. Therefore, no water is available in the motorhome. It is the responsibility of the guests to winterize the motorhome at their own expense during the trip if weather conditions require it. The guest is also financially responsible that the camper will be winterized again on the return journey, if the camper was winterized at the time of collection. If the RV is not returned winter-proof at -5 degrees Celsius or below, a hibernation fee of US$150 will be charged. The guest is fully liable for damage to the water pipes and water systems caused by freezing while driving.
