2. Hire Period and Extensions
2.1 Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Wicked Campers agrees to hire the Vehicle to You and You agree to hire the Vehicle from Wicked Campers for the Hire Period. You may only use the Vehicle for the duration of the Hire Period. If Wicked Campers grants its consent to an extension of the Hire Period, the Return Date shall be extended (‘The Extended Return Date’) and the extension fee must be paid for immediately via credit or debit card if your hire has already started. If the vehicle is not available for the extended period, it must be returned at the original time and date specified on the Rental Agreement otherwise this will result in a lapse of insurance cover. Wicked Campers reserves the right to charge the authorised additional time at the full daily hire rate. For info concerning unauthorised extension costs see 3.4. During the Hire Period, You shall keep the vehicle and its accessories in your (or any approved driver’s) possession and shall not allow a third party to take possession of the vehicle or its accessories and when not in use You shall keep the vehicle and its accessories adequately protected and secured.
3. Picking up and Returning the van
3.1 When you collect the Vehicle you are required to bring your drivers license, credit/debit card and a Wicked sense of adventure! Your drivers licence must be a full National driving licence from your country of residence held for at least one year. Licences issued overseas must be clearly identifiable as a driving licence, otherwise an International driving licence will be required. It is the driver's responsibility to ensure that he/she has the appropriate driving licence for the countries they intend to travel to. No refunds will be given for rentals rejected due to non-production of a driving licence or non-disclosed endorsements. All drivers must be present on collecting the van unless we have authorised this beforehand.
3.2 Collection of the Vehicle should be within 30 minutes of your arranged pick-up time as shown on the Booking confirmation unless we are advised otherwise, in advance, by You. You acknowledge and agree that the Vehicle is delivered to you in good operating and roadworthy condition, without any damage or defects (mechanical or otherwise) other than those noted on the Condition Diagram on the Rental Agreement (which you also acknowledge accurately reflects the condition and cleanliness of the vehicle at the time you take possession of it).
3.3 You must return the Vehicle to the Return Location on the Return Date in the same condition as it is in at the Commencement Date, fair wear and tear excepted (other than windscreen or tyre damage). You must also return the Vehicle in a clean and presentable state for the next hire including all cutlery, utensils and van equipment. Failure to do so will result in a minimum £50 charge. If Wicked Campers have agreed that you may return the vehicle outside of business hours, you will remain responsible for the vehicle, its accessories, and its condition until it is re-inspected by a member of staff on the next working day. Despite anything herein to the contrary, however, and without the prejudice to its other rights, Wicked Campers may retake Possession of the Vehicle without prior demand and at your expense if you breach this agreement, or if the Vehicle is illegally parked, used in violation of any law or is, in Wicked Camper’s opinion, apparently abandoned. If Possession is retaken, any unexpired part of the Hire Period will thereupon be extinguished without any refund to you.
3.4 Additionally, if you fail to return the Vehicle on the Return Date without prior consent of Wicked Campers, Wicked Campers may treat the Vehicle as stolen and may report this to the authorities. If you do not bring back the vehicle on time or drop it at the wrong location you are breaking the conditions of this agreement. Wicked Campers may charge you for each additional day at the minimum rate of £75 per day until the vehicle is returned. You may be charged for any additional costs that Wicked Campers incurs as a result of the vehicle not being returned in time or any additional costs Wicked Campers incur as a result of aiding your onward travel. If the vehicle is considered to be abandoned by Wicked Campers then Wicked Campers reserve the right to charge you £75 per day until the vehicle is returned, intact, with all keys returned to Wicked Campers. If you return the Vehicle to any other location than the agreed location, repatriation costs will be charged to you.
4. Insurance and Damage
4.1 All vans come with Third Party Insurance for one driver. Each additional driver must also be covered/named on the Rental agreement. You are responsible for any damage that occurs to the vehicle during the period of your hire including tyre and Windscreen/window damage*. The only exception to this is if the damage is a Third parties fault and you have provided their full details to us and it is proven, by our insurers that the Third party is to blame. In incidents that involve a Third Party it may be necessary for Wicked Campers to take and hold the excess, bond, or exclusion amount temporarily until a firm resolution is decided by the insurers. If the Third party involved is proven to be fully liable by Wicked Campers Insurers this payment will be returned to you.Wicked Campers will replace tyres that are due, through wear and tear, to be changed. All other tyre wear/damage is the customers responsibility.*
* - Unless you booked on or after 1 May 2012 and chose Liability Reduction B which includes 2 tyres and 1 windscreen in the cover. Or unless you have chosen the All inclusive insurance option, in which case you have zero liability.
4.2(a) For bookings made before 1/May/2012 the Standard Vehicle Damage Excess is £750 (GBP) for Multiple Vehicle Incidents and £1000 (GBP) for Single Vehicle Incidents for which you are liable. Break-ins, attempted break-ins, windscreen and tyre damage are classed as Single Vehicle Incidents, as is any damage that occurs to the vehicle where no other vehicle is involved. The excess applies in respect of each claim, not rental.
4.2(b) For bookings made on or after 1/May/2012 see 4.4. Again the liability/bond applies in respect of each claim, not rental.4.3 Any insurance cover chosen is automatically voided and customers are fully liable for all damage/loss costs if any of the following scenarios occur:
- If the Vehicle has been driven off-road and/or has been driven on un-tarmacked roads and/or has been driven without due care and attention and/or has been driven negligently.
- Where the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Where the driver(s) has not been named on the Rental Agreement.
- Where the vehicle is loaded with more passengers than their stated capacity by Wicked Campers.
- When damage is caused by the rental vehicle being towed away by any unauthorized third party.
- Where the vehicle has not been adequately secured/locked during the period of hire.
- If the terms of this agreement have been breached.
In these circumstances, your liability to pay for any damage will not be waived and you may be liable for the full cost up to and exceeding the excess.
4.4 For bookings made on or after 1/May/2012 the Damage cover here is available subject to the terms of our Vehicle Rental Agreement. This means that we indemnify renters against loss and damage that renters sustain as a result of a single or multiple vehicle accident whilst a permitted driver is driving the rented Wicked vehicle. However, we will only do this if you have complied with the terms of our Vehicle Rental Agreement and you have paid the applicable amounts set out in the table below. Should you choose to take 'Standard Liability' or 'Liability Reduction A' Cover, your credit card will be charged for the total amount of the bond shown 7 days before your pick up date. Liability Reduction B entitles 2 x Tyres, 1 x Windscreen. Damage incurred on unsealed roads will not be covered. The All Inclusive cover covers all damage scenarios. Credit card fees apply as outlined in section 10 to the hire charges but not to the bond. Applicable bonds are to be paid in full before your hire commences. When you book a van with us you agree that Wicked can take this bond from your card details within 24 hours of your hire commencing if you have not submitted an alternative payment method.
4.4.1 Please note the following exclusions apply to the Liability Reduction A & B damage cover option:
- Any damage incurred whilst the vehicle is stationary is not covered, unless there is another vehicle involved that has been identified and reported to the police and is ultimately found to be wholly responsible by our insurers. Customers are liable for up to £1000 per incident.
- Reversing vehicles are not covered by this damage cover. Any damage incurred whilst reversing is to be at the hirers expense. Customers are liable for up to £1000 per incident.
- Any breakdown costs if the breakdown is deemed to be the hirers fault (i.e. wrong fuel/not checking oil & water/locked in or lost keys/tyre changes/flat batteries as a result of hirer negligence etc). Hirers are also responsible for any recovery fees on unsealed roads.
- Damage or loss costs of up to £1000 per incident as a result of any break-ins and/or theft of or to the vehicle. Wicked Campers does not cover theft, fire or break-ins – this is the responsibility of your travel insurer.
- Any missing/lost/damaged items belonging to the vehicle when the van is checked back in and any cleaning fees if not returned clean.
Note that all insurance options refer to the motor vehicle only. They do not cover the van additions - including Safari tents, beds, kitchen, keys etc. Any damage or loss to the customised interior, keys or the tent are excluded from the insurance cover. If the van is brought back dirty cleaning fees will still apply under all insurance options and any fines/late fees incurred are also valid. We recommend having good travel insurance to protect your own belongings and cover any additional expenses.
4.4.2 & 4.4.3
4.5 If you choose Standard Liability, Liability Reduction A or B, you are responsible and liable for any damage, fire, break-in or vandalism to the Vehicle that may occur during the hire period. All incidents here are deemed as an exclusion and therefore it is your responsibility to pay for all costs up to £1000 if the vehicle is broken into/vandalised or damaged by fire. This may also include postage costs to send parts out to you. You are also responsible for compensating Wicked Campers in full for any loss in revenue that it suffers as a result of any damage, fire or theft to or of the vehicle whilst it is being repaired. Personal injury and personal effects are NOT covered, however, these are normally covered by your own travel insurance policy. You should ensure you have full personal travel insurance to cover all eventualities.
4.6 If a collision or single vehicle accident occurs, a Police report and case number must be provided along with the Third parties details. You must contact Wicked Campers in the event of any damage and an accident report form should be completed by the end of the hire period. If this procedure is not followed,the insurance cover could become invalidated, leaving clients liable for all damage. You should retain copies of all rental documentation in the event that an insurance company is involved. Where damage is caused to the Vehicle on seperate occasions, each incident will be considered as a seperate claim for which you are liable for the excess.
4.7 If you have a non-fault accident, as deemed by our insurers, and the vehicle is no longer driveable, Wicked Campers will either replace your vehicle with a similar one or refund the hire charges for any days you lose the total use of the vehicle. Note that this is at the discretion of wicked Campers depending on the circumstances of the accident.
4.8 Wicked Campers Ltd will endeavour to notify you of any outstanding charges/excess payment you are liable for within 4 weeks of your drop off date. However, insurance claims can take several months to process and penalty charge administrating is also outwith our control so be aware that delays can occur and that ultimately you are liable for any incidents/penalties that occur during your hire.
4.9 Wicked Campers Ltd will endeavour to refund any bond paid (for bookings from 1 May 2012 onwards) within 7 days of your return date. Note that cash is unacceptable to pay the bond and that all bonds will be refunded less any merchant fees as per section 10. Alternatively you can transfer your bond via bank transfer and this will returned the same way less any bank fees which are borne by the hirer.
5. Theft and Loss
5.1 You must look after the vehicle and the keys to the vehicle. Loss of keys will result in a charge of £100 plus any courier/postage costs. Wicked Campers will post you replacement keys but will not be liable for reimbursing any loss of hire days due to this. You must always lock the vehicle when you are not using it.
5.2 If you intend to leave the vehicle unattended for any extended period of time you must make sure it is in a secure parking area. In the event of the Vehicle being stolen or lost during the hire period you are liable for £1000 unless you have chosen the All Inclusive insurance option. If it is discovered that you are negligent for the theft/loss Wicked Campers will demand the full cost of a replacement vehicle and the Rental Agreement will be terminated immediately. Negligence includes parking the vehicle in any Unsecure area for any length of time. If you are not at fault then you are still responsible for the £1000 excess, however, Wicked Campers will provide you with a replacement vehicle, if available, within 2 weeks of the incident once the excess payment has been received. You will be required to travel to the closest Wicked Campers depot that has an available replacement Vehicle at your own cost. Wicked Campers will not cover the loss of any hire days in these circumstances.
5.3 Personal effects should be covered under your own personal Travel Insurance policy. We strongly recommend that all customers obtain the highest level of travel insurance to cover any eventualities.
6. Maintenance and Responsibility
6.1 You must always protect the vehicle against bad weather which can cause damage. You must make sure that you use the correct fuel. You are responsible for damage and expenses incurred as a result of using incorrect fuel.
6.2 It is your own responsibility to maintain oil and water levels, by checking and maintaining to full. It is advisable to do this at every fuel top-up. Failure to maintain appropriate fluid levels may result in engine damage, and will constitute a breach of your obligations under this Rental Agreement. Any damage incurred to the engine will be charged up to and exceeding the Single vehicle Incident excess amount (for bookings made before 1 May 2012) and up to and exceeding £1000 (for bookings made on or after 1 May 2012) if you are discovered to be negligent.
6.3 The Vehicle is provided to you with a full set of tyres in good condition. In the event that any of them is damaged for any reason other than normal wear and tear, you undertake to replace it immediately at your own expense with a tyre of the same dimensions, type and wear characteristics. Unless you have booked on or after 1 May 2012 and chosen Liability Reduction B where 2 tyres are included in the cover, or have the All Inclusive cover. In the Winter months Wicked Campers are not obliged to fit winter tyres to rental vehicles that will be taken to countries where they are a legal requirement. The responsibility for fitting special tyres to a vehicle, and for equipping it with any other motoring accessories required in a foreign country, rests with the driver.
6.4 You must stop the Vehicle if any of the instrument panel warning lights, which are intended to indicate the existence of a mechanical problem, light up, or if you become aware of anything else which may indicate the presence of a mechanical problem with the Vehicle.
6.5 You must bring the van back in a clean and presentable state and ready for the next customer to hire, a £50 cleaning fee will be charged if this is not adhered to. An additional £150 cleaning fee will be charged if it is discovered that a pet has traveled in the vehicle without Wicked Campers prior consent and/or if the vehicle is returned in an unclean state after a pet has traveled in the vehicle.
7. Roadside assistance
7.1 All Wicked Campers Vehicles come with Roadside assistance throughout the UK and Europe. Fees may apply for callouts for human error, eg. Lockout or lights left on, use outside of contracted area of use, or damage caused by negligence. Fees for excess towing and recovery may also apply at Wicked Camper's discretion.
7.2 In the event of any mechanical difficulties, or any problems whatsoever with your Wicked Camper, it is important that you report this to Wicked Campers within 24 hours. Repairs can only be made after written or oral confirmation from and instructions given by Wicked Campers as well as prior acceptation by Wicked Campers of the estimation of costs. The fees and expenses of any repair undertaken without the authorisation of Wicked Campers will not be reimbursed to you.
7.3 If your vehicle is unavailable overnight due to being held in a mechanical repair shop you will be refunded for that nights hire. This only applies if the breakdown is through no fault of your own and Wicked Campers have been fully informed. For all out of pocket expenses, we recommend you take the highest level of travel insurance. We do not/cannot guarantee our vans and cannot guarantee a replacement vehicle. In the unlikely event that the vehicle cannot be fixed or replaced and the hire is cancelled we will refund the remaining days hire and assist you in reaching the nearest onward travel point. Again, this only applies if the breakdown is through no fault of your own.
8.1 Accessories are defined as any optional extras you hire in addition to your Wicked Campervan. These currently include Sat navs, mobile broadband, power, heaters , bikes and bike racks. Any charges relating to damage or failure of this equipment is completely independent of the Vehicle Damage Liability or excesses which refer to the vehicle only. All equipment is checked prior to despatch. The Hirer is to inspect the equipment upon pick up and notify Wicked Campers Ltd immediately of any defect. If no such notification is given then it will be presumed that the equipment is in good working order and fit for its purpose as required.
8.2 The hirer will observe and adhere to all the instructions relating to the correct use of the equipment and keep it in a good condition. The hirer will be held entirely responsible for any subsequent loss or damage to the equipment resulting in failure to observe such instructions or failure to use the equipment in a proper manner. The hirer is responsible for the equipment until it has been received and checked back in by Wicked Campers Ltd. The hirer will be responsible for the replacement cost of any stolen, damaged or lost components of the unit or any repair. Wicked Campers Ltd accept no liability or responsibility for any damage to our failure of operation of the equipment due to any incompatibility with any other equipment used by the hirer and the hirer will be liable in this instance. Hirers should use the contact details given to them with the equipment for any help/assistance with the equipment.
8.3 If any of the parts are lost, stolen or damaged the following replacement charges will be applied and will be exclusive of the Vehicle Damage and Vehicle Loss Excesses listed in section 4:

Sucker Pad - £19.99/ Charger - £12.99

8.4 In the event of any failure of the equipment the hirer shall immediately notify Wicked Campers Ltd. Should the equipment failure prove to be due to the misuse or the fault of the hirer in any way, Wicked Campers Ltd reserve the right to pass on the costs of repair charges to the hirer.
8.5 The hirer will be responsible for the safe return of the equipment and all its component parts. The hirer will be responsible for the hire cost until such time as the unit and/or any missing components are returned.
8.6 If you decide to cancel your accessory hire prior to picking up your Wicked Camper, you must notify Wicked Campers Ltd at least 7 days before your pick up date in order to avoid charges. Any cancellations within 7 days of your pick up date will incur the full cost of the equipment hire. Any cancellations or early drop offs once your hire has commenced will not be eligible for refunds.
9. Price match guarantee and Specials
9.1 If you find the same vehicle offered by any other independent camper van rental company at a cheaper rate prior to booking, we will do our very best to match it. Our price match guarantee only applies to quotes made with operators within the same country. Your collection point will affect your quote. You cannot compare prices for an airport pick up and a non-airport pick up. Our price match guarantee does not apply to promotional offers. From time to time we will offer low priced specials, often at the last minute. These specials are bound by the same Terms and conditions as all other hires. These specials are also for new bookings only.
10. Charges and Bond
10.1(a) For bookings made before 1 May 2012 - When booking, and before taking Possession of the Vehicle valid credit or debit card details are required by Wicked Campers in place of a bond. Not withstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Wicked Campers is hereby irrevocably authorized to use these details in lieu of any moneys that become payable by You pursuant to this Agreement. We can do this without prior demand.
10.1(b) For bookings made on or after 1 May 2012 – From this date we will be taking bonds as per tables B & C in section 4.4.2 and 4.4.3.

Amex incurs a 3% surcharge, which you agree to pay. Surcharges do not apply to the bond payment unless you use an AMEX card, in which case a £15 surcharge applies to the bond.
*The excess or liability amount in respect of each incident resulting in damage to or loss of the vehicle, its accessories or any property left stored or transported in or upon the Vehicle, save to the extent that such damage or loss arises from the actions of Wicked Campers.
*You are liable for all fees, taxes, fines and penalties incurred in connection with the use of the Vehicle and for which Wicked Campers is charged. You agree to pay all charges, tolls, border crossing fees and court costs incurred in relation to the Vehicle by You or Wicked Campers from the commencement of the rental until the vehicle is returned to Wicked Campers. You must pay the appropriate authority any fines and costs if and when the authority demands this payment. If you do not, you will also be responsible for paying Wicked Campers reasonable administration charges.

If a 3rd party is involved and is then proven to be fully liable by Wicked Campers Insurers your excess payment will be returned. If the incident comes under the exclusions listed in 4.4.1 then the liability amount stated there will be taken and held until a resolution is reached.
11.1 Wicked Campers aim to resolve any complaints within 28 days of receipt. Complaints must be made in writing to: Wicked Campers Ltd, 196 Carlisle Lane, London, SE1 7LH. Complaints will only be handled if received within 28 days of the hire period ending.

12. You acknowledge that:

The Company shall not be liable for damages arising from defects or mechanical failures which are not attributable to any breach of the manufacturer’s warranty implied by law to take reasonable care or exercise reasonable skill.

If travel outside of the UK has been pre-approved by Wicked Campers you acknowledge that the vehicle must only be driven in permitted European countries as determined by Wicked Campers and their Insurers. Taking the vehicle outside of these listed countries is at your own risk and you will therefore be liable for all costs associated. For Eastern European travel, Wicked Campers recommend purchasing a VOH certificate to facilitate crossing these borders with ease. Note that the VOH certificate must be pre-ordered from Wicked Campers as we require several days notice to produce one (times vary dependent on your pick up location). Wicked Campers are not liable for any costs incurred if you are refused entry to any of the approved countries.
You must not sell, rent or dispose of the vehicle or any of its parts. You must not give anyone any legal rights over the vehicle.
14. You and any driver specifically approved shall:
Inform Wicked Campers of any loss, damage or fault developing in the vehicle as soon as You become aware of the loss, damage or fault.
Indemnify Wicked Campers against loss as is recoverable at law where that loss is incurred by reason of a breach of this Agreement by You or any approved driver.
Ensure that maximum payload and individual axle plated weights are not exceeded and that height restrictions are observed.
15. You and any driver specifically approved shall not:
Without prior consent of Wicked Campers incur any liability for repairs to the Vehicle. If Wicked Campers authorise someone to work on the Vehicle for specified repairs then Wicked Campers will only refund the cost of this pre-authorised amount with a valid receipt.

16. General Provisions
You release and hold harmless Wicked Campers (and its agents and employees) from all claims for loss or damage to your personal property, or that of any other person whose property is left in the Vehicle, or which is received, handled or stored by Wicked Campers at any time before, during or after the Entire Period, whether due to Wicked Campers negligence or otherwise.
All rental transactions are in British Pounds (£) GBP. If the need should arise for a refund, it will be applied in British Pounds (£). Wicked Campers accepts no responsibility for exchange rate fluctuations, positive or negative.
Except as provided by law, and then only to the extent that any such obligation cannot be excluded: no part of any moneys paid or payable by You pursuant to this Agreement is refundable
Wicked Campers can refuse to provide a vehicle to any customer who is, in their opinion, unfit to drive or does not meet eligibility requirements. In such circumstances no refund will be due.
Wicked Campers reserves the right to remove any discounts applied to a booking if the customer chooses to shorten or change their hire from the original specification.
Wicked Campers will allocate vehicles ahead of time depending on many factors from availability to mechanical/servicing requirements. All vans within your specified category (i.e. 2 seater or Multi seater) are laid out the same and drive exactly the same. Wicked cannot guarantee a specific camper (colour/name) on pick up. Wicked reserves the right to conduct modification to the layout of the vans at any time.
Sometimes due to unforseen circumstances (crash, vehicle theft, etc.) we are unable to supply the vehicle requested. Wicked Campers will take no responsibility if the booked vehicle is not physically present in the depot and therefore not available due to external conditions beyond our control. We will always endeavour to supply a vehicle of similar quality and characteristics.
Wicked Campers is not responsible for any insect infestation such as but not limited to ants, flies, cockroaches, fleas, bedbugs and mosquitoes. No refunds will be provided for any infestations mentioned above or that could have happened during the rental time.
The exercise of any of Wicked Campers rights hereunder shall in no way limit, restrict or prejudice Wicked Campers ability to exercise any of its other rights, remedies and powers whether contractual, statutory or common law in nature, and whether legal or equitable. No right of Wicked Campers under this Agreement nor any of Your obligations hereunder may be waived except in writing by a director or solicitor of Wicked Campers.
These Terms and conditions are subject to revision and by using our website (www.wickedcampers.co.uk) you agree to be bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit the Policy page to determine the current terms and conditions to which you are bound.
Where any dispute arises between Wicked Campers and the Hirer as to any date or amount or the existence of any fact (including any breach) for the purposes of any provision of this Agreement, a certificate signed by any one of the directors, attorneys, solicitors or secretary for the time being of Wicked Campers stipulating the same shall be conclusive evidence thereof unless You prove the contrary.
Should any term, covenant, condition, provision, stipulation or restriction herein contained be or become illegal or unenforceable then in such case this Agreement shall be read and construed as if such term, covenant, condition, provision, stipulation or restriction as the case may be had been severed from the beginning and the remaining part of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
This agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with the Laws of England. All disputes arising out of or in connection with the agreement shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
