CLIENT SERVICE CENTRE OPERATING HOURS
Daily (including weekends) 8.00am – 5.00pm
Client Service Centres are closed on Christmas Day (25 December)
Note: Clients must be at the Client Service Centre for vehicle pick ups & drop offs before 4.30pm. Where applicable, agents need to allow appropriate time for clients to get from airports, ferry terminals and hotels to meet this requirement.
VEHICLE SECURITY GUARANTEE
A credit card imprint is required on all rental agreements. The credit card must be valid for 28 days after the end of the hire. In the absence of a credit card, Pacific Horizon requires a cash vehicle security bond of NZ$4,500 (NZ$2,500 if Street Smart Excess Reduction is taken, or NZ$250 if Freedom Plus Excess Reduction is taken). This credit card imprint or cash will be held for 28 days after the return of the motorhome.
NOTE: The hirer is fully liable for any damage to the Pacific Horizon vehicle or third party property if:
• The terms of the rental contract are breached.
• Damage to the vehicle is caused by careless, wilful or reckless driving or breach of any New Zealand driving rules and regulations.
• Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
• Driving on restricted roads (as listed below).
• Water submersion or salt water damage caused through the hirer’s fault.
• Incorrect fuel is used
MINIMUM RENTAL DURATION AND COSTING
Minimum rental period is 7 days.
Minimum rental is extended to 14 days for the travel period from 16 December to 10 January and also for New Zealand / Australia school holiday dates.
Shorter rentals may be accepted entirely at the discretion of Pacific Horizon and special conditions may apply. Vehicle rentals are calculated on a per calendar day basis, i.e. day of pick up and drop off is always counted as a full day irrespective of what time the vehicle is collected or dropped off.
DRIVER’S LICENCE AND MINIMUM AGE
A valid full national driver’s licence is required. Non-English language national drivers’ licences must be presented in conjunction with an official translation or valid international driver’s licence.
The minimum age to drive a Pacific Horizon vehicle is 21 years.

2. Animals: No animals are permitted in vehicles, with the exception of guide dogs, subject to the approval of Pacific Horizon.

Minor repairs (when the hirer is not at fault) up to NZ$100 may be made without authorisation and will be reimbursed upon production of an itemised receipt. Amounts above NZ$100 require approval from Pacific Horizon On-Road Care, and clients must retain an itemised receipt.
All Pacific Horizon vehicles must be returned with a full fuel tank and be filled up within 3 kms of the drop off location.
