Please note we recommend you take out an insurance to cover the damage deposit risk. There is a link on our bookings section to connect you to a comparison website used widely in this industry. Costs vary but it is around £10 oer night to reduce your risk to as low as £350.
The owner will ask the customer for a bond or damage deposit, of £1500 or that equal to the excess required by the insurance company. This is payable at the latest on the day of collection and only by bank transfer.
This is refundable if hire is cancelled. The refundable amount will be the security bond minus any charges or damages that may occur during the period of hire. We advise payment of the damage deposit before you arrive to collect as we cannot be responsible for any failure or delay in connectivity that may prohibit speedy access to telephone banking resulting in a delay to your onward journey. We will advise you of the bank details to proceed with this.
Bunty’s Motorhome Hire will not let the van go out until all the monies have cleared into our bank account. If the funds have not cleared we will not be liable for any fees for late check in to sites, missed ferries or any other costs associated with a late departure.

The van and all its equipment must be returned in good condition, with no damage to it, its contents or any third-party property.
Your damage/security deposit will normally be refunded within 2 days of the end of the rental period. This delay allows us time to thoroughly check the van and contents or any damage not reported to us or identified at the time of return.
The security deposit is refundable upon safe return of the van, in the condition in which it left our depot subject to an inspection completed by and satisfactory to us. Should there be any damage or requirement for any repair, replacement or special cleaning, the costs will deducted from the security deposit before the balance is returned to you. You irrevocably authorise us to deduct from the Security Deposit any amounts due to us arising out of this Agreement. In the event that there is a claim we reserve the right to retain the security deposit for as long as is a reasonable period necessary to quantify the charges incurred which are to be deducted from the deposit. You should be aware that the security deposit will be used towards funding any loss or damage whatsoever to the van or its equipment, fixtures and fittings as well as payment for the insurance excess. You also agree that your damage deposit may be used to compensate the follow on hirer if they are adversley affected by any failure on your part to notify us of any issues as written in our terms and conditions.
Where the security deposit is insufficient to cover the costs, you agree to pay any additional amounts due. These will be invoiced as appropriate to you for payment.
