FLEX RATES
Daily Flex Rates are in USD Dollars
Valid from 01 January 2010 to 31 March 2011

Flex Rates allows us to offer flexible pricing, which gives you the opportunity to secure the best possible rental rate. The Flex Rates are based on a very simple system of supply and demand. So when there are a large number of vehicles available for hire from a particular branch then the rental rate is lower. This way you can benefit from the lower rates offered. Generally, this means that the earlier you book the cheaper the rate! There will also be great Standby Rates!
 
However, once booked, should you need to amend the dates, the prevailing rates will apply. We get advised of new flex rates each week. Therefore each quote only valid until the end of each week.

PROTECTION PACKAGE

Public Liability Insurance:
The public liability insurance is included in the daily rental rate. Apollo is insured for damages to third parties and/or their property up to a limit of USD $1 million. The public liability insurance that covers the registered drivers is only up to the statutory limit as stipulated by law of the State you are in at the time. This insurance amount is normally very low.

Top Service Inclusion:
Apollo has included an additional SLI third party insurance policy in the rental rates which increases the driver’s public liability insurance level to USD $1 million – well above the statutory limits.

The maximum SLI insurance covers claims made by third parties against the rental company or the renter of the motorhome (for damage to third parties or their property). Passengers in the rented motorhome are not counted as third parties and the driver is therefore not insured for claims brought by them against him/herself.

Property Damage:
The renter is responsible up to the amount of USD $1,000 for the cost of damage to the rented Vehicle. The renter is also responsible for the cost of demurrage for the period the Vehicle is unavailable due to repairs. The Liability applies in respect of each claim, not per rental. The Liability is applicable regardless of who is at fault and must be paid at the time the accident is reported to Apollo, not at the completion of the rental Period.

Liability Reduction Option:
A USD $0 (zero) Liability applies. This Option can be purchased by paying to Apollo USD $15 per day. The maximum amount payable for this Option per rental is USD $375 – i.e. 25 days rental.

LRO protects against:

  • Accidental damages
  • Windscreen and other glass damage
  • Protection against theft and vandalism
  • Protection against uninsured motorists

Bond:
A Bond of USD $1,000 will be collected at the time of entering into the Rental Contract. The USD $1,000 will be debited to the credit card account immediately. An administration fee of USD $20 applies.

For security purposes, only a credit card can be used to provide a Bond. The credit card holder must be present and able to sign for the Bond upon vehicle collection. The credit card holder is jointly and severally liable for any damage to the rental vehicle.

The Bond is fully refundable when the vehicle is returned to the correct location on time, is full of fuel and all other terms of the Rental Contract have been complied with. If there is damage to the Apollo Motorhome vehicle on its return, the Bond will be used to cover the cost of such damage up to the amount of the relevant Liability. However, if the terms of the Rental Contract are breached and the Bond is insufficient to cover the damage then any extra cost will be charged.

Full Responsibility:
At all times the renter is responsible for:

  • Damage caused where the terms of Rental Contract have been breached.
  • Damage caused by negligence.
  • Damage caused to the Vehicle in any way by part or total water submersion or salt water.
  • Damage caused due to a single vehicle roll over.
  • Damage caused to the Vehicle by the renter’s wilful conduct.
  • Damage caused to the Vehicle when using the Vehicle in contravention of any legislation or regulation controlling vehicular traffic.
  • Damage or loss caused to any personal belongings.
  • Damage caused due to use of incorrect or contaminated fuel.
  • Damage to the awning, overhead or underbody of the Vehicle.

One Way Rentals:
One Way Rentals are available between all depots. A one way fee of USD $200 applies. Minimum 7 days for one way rentals.

Minimum Rental Period:

  • 01 April 2010 to 30 June 2010, and 01 October 2010 to 31 March 2011: 5 Days*
  • July 2010 to 30 September 2010: 7 Days
  • Minimum rental periods are subject to change during other peak periods
  • Minimum period for one way rentals is 7 days.

Transfers:
Vehicles must be collected and returned to our branches (no airport returns). Transfers to and from the Apollo depot are not included in the rental price. It is the renter’s responsibility to get to and from the branch.

Burning Man Festival:
An additional surcharge of USD $500 applies for travel to the Burning Man Festival.

Drivers Licence:
A valid, non-provisional, state or overseas driver's licence is required. If the driver's licence is not in the English language (e.g. German, French, Chinese, etc) then an international driver's licence is also required. The driver’s licence must have been held for at least two years and be valid for the whole length of the rental. The original driver's licence must be shown at time of pick-up when the driver is present.

Minimum and Maximum Age:
The minimum age to drive the vehicle is 21 years and the maximum age is 75 years.

Multiple Rentals:
Consecutive rentals can be combined to qualify for a long-term discount rate. Rentals in the United States of America, Australia and New Zealand can be combined to obtain a long-term discount rate, providing travel is within a 3 month period. If drop off of a vehicle and pick up of a new vehicle occurs on the same day then a day each will be charged per respective vehicle. Multiple rentals are treated as separate rentals under the one way fee and minimum rental period conditions.

Change of Drop Destination:
If the renter wishes to change the drop off destination after the rental has commenced, they first must obtain authorisation from the Apollo Head Office. Subject to the change being approved, a minimum additional charge of USD $500 will apply.

Repairs:
Although we run late model vehicles, it may happen that small repairs are required. Repairs up to USD $100 may be affected without authorisation and will be reimbursed unless the damage is caused by the renter. For amounts over USD $100, Apollo will need to be informed in advance. All vehicles are covered for 24hr emergency roadside assistance.

Traffic Infringements:
We reserve the right to charge the renter for any speeding or parking fines, traffic infringements or road toll fines. An additional administration fee of $75 per fine will apply to cover the costs of processing.

Limit of Liability:
In the event of no alternative vehicle being available to the renter our liability is limited to a refund of the hire charge or in the case of mechanical failure (unless caused by the renter) the remainder of the hire period.

Animals:
No animals are permitted in our vehicles, excluding guide dogs.

Smoking is not allowed in our vehicles.
