Understanding all of your options when it comes to insurance, liability and security bonds when hiring a motorhome in New Zealand is important.  This page is a summary of each motorhome Companies Liability (deductible) and options to reduce it.


Standard Liability

Standard Liability is the amount you will be liable to pay in the event of an accident or damage to the vehicle, regardless of who is at fault. The liability applies in respect of each claim, not rental. If no reduction option is taken the full amount is charged on pickup of vehicle (Bond)
