Driver’s Licence and Minimum Age
A valid, non-provisional, state or overseas driver’s licence is required. If the driver’s licence is not in the English language (e.g. German, French, Chinese, etc) then an international driver’s licence is also required. For travel in the Northern Territory, an International Driving Permit is required along with the foreign driver licence. We do not accept Digital Driver licences.
Note: UK driver licences that have had approved extensions by the UK DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency) can still travel for up to 11 months past the licence expiry. This extension only applies to full GB driving licence holders. It does not apply to provisional driving licence entitlement.
The driver’s licence must be valid for the whole length of the rental. The original driver’s licence must be shown at time of pick-up when the driver is present.
The minimum age to drive the vehicle is 18 years.


Booking Amendments
If you wish to make any changes to your booking (including voluntary downgrade) the booking will be calculated by using either the original flex rate or the flex rate that is valid at the time of the booking change, depending on whichever rate is higher. There are no exceptions to this rule. The following situations are classified as booking alterations: 
- Change of name
- Change to pick-up or drop-off  dates
- Change pick-up or drop-off branch location
- Change of RV category
- Change of rate scheme including special rates
If the rate scheme or RV category is changed, this is considered a new booking and cancellation fees may apply to the original booking.

If there are any last-minute alternations made within 14 days of pick-up we will be happy to accommodate these, however due to the short notice if the holiday is shortened the number of days originally booked will be charged.
If the pick-up or drop-off location is altered within 14 days of pick up, a relocation fee may also apply.
If cancelled on day of pick-up or no show - 100% of rental including any applicable fees e.g. One Way.

Multiple Rentals
Consecutive Apollo Motorhome/Campervan rentals can be combined to qualify for a long-term discount rate. Rentals in the United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Ireland on Star RV, Apollo, Cheapa Campa and Hippie Camper can be combined to obtain a long-term discount rate, providing travel is within a 3 month period. If drop off of a vehicle and pick up of a new vehicle occurs on the same day then a day each will be charged per respective vehicle. Multiple rentals are treated as separate rentals under the one way fee and minimum rental period conditions. This discount does not apply to completed bookings.

Change of Drop Off Destination after Pick-Up

If the renter wishes to change the drop off destination after the rental has commenced, they first must obtain authorisation from the Hippie Camper Reservations. Subject to the change being approved, a minimum additional charge of minimum AU$750 will apply. 


Rental Extension

If the guest wishes to extend the rental whilst on hire, they must first obtain authorisation from Hippie Camper Reservations who will advise of the additional costs. Rental extension is subject to fleet availability. The extra cost (calculated on the current rate of the day) of an extended rental must be paid by credit card over the telephone or at an Hippie Camper Branch immediately on confirmation of the rental extension.

Failure to obtain authorisation will result in the renter being charged double the daily gross rental rate.


Change Of Vehicle
Should the vehicle booked be unavailable through unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to substitute an alternative vehicle without prior notification and at no extra cost. This shall not constitute a breach of contract and does not entitle the renter to a refund. 


Vehicle Category

Vehicles cannot be requested by make or model, only by vehicle category.

Voluntary Downgrade

Should the renter decide to take a lesser vehicle than booked within 14 days of pick up or during the rental then they will not be entitled to any refund.

Travel Insurance
We strongly recommend that renters ensure they take out the highest level of Travel Insurance.


Personal Injury
The RV has third party insurance cover and It is likely that any other vehicle involved in an accident also has third party insurance. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the renter may be entitled to claim for their personal injury against the third party insurance of the party responsible for the accident. The extent of such third party insurance varies in different States and Territories and Apollo strongly recommends that all passengers take out their own Personal Injury Travel Insurance.

Property Damage
The RV is insured for damage to it or damage to the property of a third party. However the guest is responsible up to the amount of the applicable Liability for damage to third party property, or to the RV. The guest is also responsible for the cost of the daily rate for the period the vehicle is being repaired. There is no refund for unused portion of the rental period. The Liability applies to each claim, not RV.
The Liability is applicable regardless of who is at fault and must be paid at the time the accident is reported to Apollo, not at the completion of the rental Period. Apollo reserves the right to charge the renter for any vehicle damage including Third Party property damage not reported on return of the RV.

Standard Liability - 'The Low Road'
The below Reduction Option does not include windscreen and tyre damage (renter is responsible for windscreen and tyre damage at all times).
Hippie rental charge includes a Standard Liability of AU$3,000. A Bond of AU$3,000 will be collected at the time of entering into the Rental Contract. Payment of this Bond is only accepted by credit card. The AU$3,000 will be debited to the credit card account immediately. An administration fee equal to the merchant surcharge applies. 

The Standard Liability can be reduced by purchasing the Reduction Option - 'The High Road':

Liability Reduction Option - The High Road
A Bond of AU$100 applies. This Option can be purchased by paying to Hippie AU$22 per day. The maximum amount payable for this Option per rental is AU$1100 – i.e. 50 days rental.

Single Vehicle Rollover
This Option can be purchased by paying to Apollo AU$5.5 per day. Minimum AU$50 per rental. Available to be booked only when Value Pack is purchased.

For security purposes, only a credit/debit card can be used to provide a Bond. With the Standard Liability the bond will be debited to the credit card account immediately. With Liability Reduction Option the Bond is payable to Hippie Camper by an open signed credit card imprint with an authorisation obtained (sufficient funds must be available) for AU$100. The credit card holder must be present and able to sign for the Bond upon vehicle collection. The credit card holder is jointly and severally liable for any damage to the rental vehicle.

The Bond is fully refundable when the vehicle is returned to the correct location on time, is full of fuel and all other terms of the Rental Contract have been complied with. If there is damage to the vehicle on its return, the Bond will be used to cover the cost of such damage up to the amount of the relevant Liability. However, if the terms of the Rental Contract are breached and the Bond is insufficient to cover the damage then any extra cost will be charged. Refunds by credit card including bond refunds can take up to 14 working days depending on the renter’s Financial institution. Bond Roll Overs are permitted for Apollo multi hires only within the same country when the bond is banked.
