One Way Fees:
One way rentals have a standard fee of AUD $200. This is waived if taken for more then 21 days.

Drivers Licence and Age Limits:
A valid full Driver’s Licence issued in Australia or in the case of an international driver, a valid licence from the country of origin or an international driver’s permit must be produced prior to collection of the Vehicle. No driver under the age of 21 years shall drive the Vehicle at any time and drivers over the age of 80 years must also produce a recent doctor’s certificate verifying the holder’s ability to drive the Vehicle. No driver other than a person nominated by the Customer and approved by the Company is to drive the Vehicle. Under no circumstances is a person to drive the Vehicle while in excess of the Prescribed Concentration of Alcohol or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Bonds:
A deposit of AUD $2000 depending depending on Insurance option taken and is required at time of pick up. On return of the vehicle, and provided no accident or damage has occurred, the vehicle's interior is completely clean, with fuel and gas tanks full, the deposit will be returned to the hirer.

INSURANCE
The Vehicle is insured against damage but excluding damage to windscreens, under body, overhead and tyres which shall be replaced or repaired at the expense of the Customer. All insurance claims are subject to an excess and any excess must be paid by the Customer within seven days of any event giving rise to an insurance claim. The Customer is liable for any damage caused by abuse or misuse of the Vehicle or arising from any circumstances which could have been reasonably foreseen by the Customer, which causes damage to the Vehicle or the property of any third party.

The Customer indemnifies the Company against any loss arising from damage caused by third parties, which if caused by the Customer would be recoverable by the Company. Personal injury is insured under the statutory third party insurance and cover is limited to the terms of that insurance. The Customer shall reimburse the Company for any loss arising from a vitiation of any insurance policy due to the acts or omissions of the Customer. No property of the Customer is insured at any time by the Company and the Company shall not be liable for such loss, however incurred.

Security Deposit:
AUD $2000 Bond is fully refundable on return of vehicle, provided that vehicle returned clean and undamaged.

Upon the Customer signing the Rental Agreement, the Bond shall be pre- authorised by Credit Card only for the amount agreed by the customer. Provided the Customer is not in breach of the Rental Agreement and Vehicle is returned in a clean and undamaged condition, the Company, at its sole discretion, may retain any monies from the security deposit (bond) to compensate for any loss arising from a breach of the Rental Agreement by the Customer.

Single Vehicle accidents are defines as any damage that is done to the vehicle when no other vehicle is involved, or when the accident is with another vehicle, but the hirer cannot provide Calypso Campervans with the driver’s licence, name or the registration number of the other vehicle. Examples of single vehicle accidents include such things as running into trees, guideposts or animals, whether intentionally or not.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)

Insurance Excess :
Insurance options Standard excess is $2,000 can be reduced down to:
$1000 by paying an extra $15 per day maximum amount payable : $450/30 days OR $400 by paying an extra $30 per day maximum amount payable: $900/30 days.

Loss of Bond is paid where:

  • a) Vehicle is used on unsealed roads
  • b) Driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • c) Damage is above the drivers head line, underbody damage or damage caused while reversing.
  • d) Driving from Dusk till Dawn
  • e) Disobeying Road Rules

Damage caused in Single Vehicle accident and accidents involving animals carries an excess of AUD $2500. This cannot be removed.
An authorized credit card imprint will be taken at time of pick up, for whichever excess has been chosen.

We strongly recommend that passengers take out travel insurance when booking. Insurance is extended for fire, collision, and theft subject to the terms of our rental contract with the exception of windscreen, underbody and tyres which are always the hirers expense. All excess included in the hire bond.

Travel Restrictions:
In keeping with Calypso's approach that hirers should be able to travel widely in our vehicles, vehicles are to be used on all main highways and on all sealed roads. The vehicles must not be driven on unsealed roads unless Calypso has specifically authorized such use. All costs associated with breakdown or accident when a vehicle is used on unsealed roads will be at the hirer's expense. Automobile Associations membership does not extend into remote outback areas and breakdown recovery cost in these areas is at the hirer's expense. Calypso advises a planned itinerary. Night driving is dangerous in country and outback areas and should be avoided.

Traffic Infringments, Tolls and Unreported Damage:
All traffic infringement notices, fines, other statutory penalties, tolls and unreported damage to third party property incurred while the Vehicle is in the possession of the Customer shall be recoverable from the Customer upon coming to the notice of the Company and a AUD $66.00 administration fee per offence/notice will be payable by the Customer.

Care of Vehicles:
At all times the Customer is responsible for the reasonable care of the Vehicle and shall be liable for the cost of any damage arising from a breach of this duty of care. At no time is the Vehicle to be left unattended and unsecured and the Vehicle must not be driven on any unsealed road without the specific authority of the Company first obtained in writing. Animals are not permitted in the Vehicle at any time.

Mechanical Breakdown:
In the event of mechanical breakdown of the Vehicle, the Customer may authorise repairs not exceeding $100.00 which will be refunded by the Company upon return of the Vehicle with a Tax Invoice and receipt for payment. The Customer must not and does not have the authority of the Company to authorise any repair exceeding $100.00 without the express written consent of the Company prior to any repair being undertaken. You have 24 Hour Road Side Assistance. Be aware if you have left your lights on flattened your starting battery the call out fee is payable to you the customer.

Replacement of Vehicles:
In case a Vehicle requires major repair or has been involved in a severe accident with no likelihood of proceeding within a reasonable time through no fault of the Customer, the Company shall use its best endeavours to provide a similar replacement Vehicle. However, if it is impractical or not commercially expedient, the Company may elect, at its discretion, not provide a replacement Vehicle, but it shall refund any unused Rental to the Customer. Down time will be calculated in hours, not days, and credited to The Hirer’s credit card immediately.

If the breakdown is caused by any breach of this Rental Agreement by the Customer or the Customer’s abuse or misuse of the Vehicle, the Customer shall pay the cost of the repairs and will not be entitled to a replacement Vehicle or any refund.
