Campervan hire insurance

Because accidents do happen

At Bonfire Vans (as with most hire companies) we require a security deposit to cover our beautiful vans as set out in our Terms and Conditions. The amount is determined by the insurance package you choose to book with us.

This amount must be secure before the vehicle can be taken and in no circumstances, can we release the vehicle without it.

The security deposit covers any damage or loss to our hire vehicles and any third parties involved in any one incident whilst on hire and will be refunded when we are happy the vehicle is returned in the condition it was rented in, pretty fair really.

The security deposit is the amount you are required to leave upon collection of the hire vehicle. The security deposit is also your liability amount, meaning the maximum you can be charge in a single accident.

Check out the packages on offer and choose what’s best for you.

Questions and answers on campervan hire and insurance

What is liability?

Accident liability is the total amount per accident the hirer can be charged in the case of damage to the hire vehicle or other third party property. The accident can be reduced by selecting one of our insurance packages to suit your requirements.

What is excess?

Excess is the total amount per accident the hirer is responsible to pay if there should be an accident whilst on hire. This amount includes damage to the Bonfire rental and any third parties’ property that is involved.

The security deposit is the amount your are required to leave upon collection of the hire vehicle. The security deposit is taken either by cash, bank transfer or cheque prior to the rental.

The amount is determined by the accident liability reduction the hirer chooses when booking as seen below.

Bonfire Vans combine your insurance excess and the security deposit into one deposit payment.

The security deposit is fully refundable if the hire vehicle and contents are returned at the end of the hire period on time, to the correct location, fuelled, clean and undamaged.
