Camperman: Campervan Hire Australia


May 2024



Your rental contract to hire a campervan from Camperman Australia is the following:

  1. The rental agreement form you have signed to hire a campervan from us.

  2. The rental terms and conditions agreement form.

  3. The vehicle condition report that has been signed.


Your rental contract is governed by the laws of the state in which the rental station you have hired the campervan from and have agreed that courts in that state have non-exclusive jurisdiction to determine any dispute that arises between you and Camperman Australia.


By signing the rental agreement contract, the hirer accepts that the terms and conditions make this an Australian contract, and that the hirer will be bound by the Australian state law in which state this agreement is contracted.

This contract overrides any other contract form or contract taken in any other country. Any changes made to this contract may only be in writing and signed by the hirer and an authorised agent of Camperman. Camperman makes no express or implied warranty in relation to this agreement.


You have consumer rights conferred by the Australian consumer law and neither this clause nor any other provision of the rental contracts excludes, restricts, or modifies any implied terms, guarantees, or rights you may have under those laws or any other federal, state or territory legislation.


We may use electronic signatures as a means of entry into the rental contract. When you insert an electronic signature, it must be your own genuine signature. By signing the form, you fully consent to the use of this means of acknowledgment and acceptance of Camperman Australia’s terms and conditions and your obligations under the rental agreement.


Who may drive the campervan?


A breach of any part of clause 2.1 is a major breach of your rental contract.

Only the main hirer or any authorized drivers are allowed to drive the campervan, allowing anyone who is not an authorized driver to drive the campervan constitutes a major breach of your rental contract that excludes you and any authorized driver from all entitlement to damage cover indemnity under clause 14.4 and 14.5 of these terms and conditions, subject to the damage cover exclusions in clause 14.7.

To become an authorised driver, you must sign the rental agreement online and sign the agreement in person at a depot. If you are unable to make it on the day of collection, notify the depot and we can arrange to get the form signed at another Camperman depot.


There is a minimum and maximum age limit for those renting from Camperman Australia. You and any authorized driver must be at least 18 and not over 85 years of age and have no less than 12 months driving experience unless a representative from Camperman Australia has agreed to a variation of that restriction before the start of the rental and it must be shown in the rental agreement.


You and any authorized drivers can drive the campervan if you have the following:

  1. A valid driver’s license issued in an Australian state or territory.

  2. An international driving permit.

  3. An approved translation into English if the license is not issued in English.

  4. If you are not subjected to any restrictions or conditions

This information must be provided before or upon collection, and any additional drivers must sign the rental contract before they are allowed to drive the vehicle.

Leaner drivers and probationary license holders are not acceptable and must not drive the campervan.

Provisional drivers are accepted and are welcome to drive the van but must display the correct provisional plates and follow all the road rules while driving.


The campervan must not be driven:

  1. Whilst your driver’s license is cancelled or suspended as a result of an accumulation of demerit points.

  2. If your license has been cancelled or suspended within three (3) years of the beginning date of the rental agreement.

Rates and conditions quoted on Camperman Australia website and/or documentation are subject to change without notice. However, (subject to changes in legislation or errors) Camperman Australia will not alter rates or conditions applicable to the hirer’s rental once the booking has been confirmed by Camperman Australia. Please note all prices are quoted and payable in Australian dollars, and all refunds (if applicable) will be applied in Australian dollars. Camperman Australia accepts no responsibility for exchange rate fluctuations, positive or negative.


Rental days are charged per calendar day. The day of pick-up is calculated as the first day of rental and the day of return is calculated as the last day of rental. This calculation is based within depot hours for pick-up and drop-offs. This is regardless of the time of day that the vehicle is collected.


Transport to and from Camperman are not included in the rental price. It is the responsibility of the hirer to arrange transport to and from Camperman depots.


It is mandatory for any upcoming bookings, to complete the online check-in at least 7 days prior to your collection and ensure the pick-up time is correct.


Customers must allow adequate time to complete the required paperwork when collecting or returning the vehicle. All vehicles must be collected from and returned to a Camperman Australia branch.

If you are unable to make it to your collection on the date stated on your booking confirmation, you must inform the head office at the earliest opportunity.


The pick-up times are between the hours of 10:00 am and 3:00 pm weekdays or between 8:30 am and 11:00 am on Saturdays for all depots.

If you do not confirm your collection time with the head office prior to your pick-up date, a time will be allocated for you.

We can at any point delay the campervan collection time for repairs, maintenance and/or cleaning, most hires return past there required drop-off time and each vehicle requires a mechanical inspection and clean before we can release it to hire.


The drop-off times for the campervan are between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm Monday to Friday and on Saturdays between the hours of 8:00 am to 11:00 am. After-hours drop-offs are available on Saturday subject to prior arrangement using the key drop-boxes at our depot locations.


After-hours and unattended pick-ups must be confirmed verbally with our head office in cairns at least two weeks prior to your collection to ensure everything is organised prior to your collection.

Please contact Camperman head office on 1800 216 223 or send an email to [email protected] for prior written arrangement and confirmation.

The cost of an unattended, after-hours, Sunday or public holiday pick-up is $80.00. This fee cannot be waived under any circumstances.


Campervans returned one day later than the arranged date on the contract will be charged the day rate applicable to the contract plus a $150.00 late fee. Thereafter, the contracted daily rate will be charged for each day the campervan is late in addition to any revenue lost or costs incurred because of the campervan being returned late. This is not negotiable and will be deducted from your security deposit.


Any change to your drop-off location after pick-up must be authorised by our friendly reservations team, from our Cairns head office, who will be happy to help. Our team will advise if the change is possible and the applicable fee. The new drop-off location is not approved unless Camperman have advised, and your rental agreement has been updated.


An unauthorised drop-off to any depot other than the contracted depot (as stated on the rental agreement) will result in a relocation fee being charged to you of $1500 in addition to the daily rate for each day the campervan is delayed.


There is no refund or credit available for the unused portion of the rental should the campervan be returned earlier than contractually agreed on the rental agreement. The hirer will be charged for the time they have booked the vehicle for, not just for the time used.


We are not open on public holidays (national or local), Christmas day, boxing day, new year’s day, and good Friday to Easter Monday (or public holidays declared for those days). You must arrange your pick-up with the head office at least 2 weeks prior to your collection.

There is a location fee for all pick-up and drop-offs of $250.00 at Airlie beach. In the case of both picking up and dropping off at Airlie Beach only one charge of $250.00 will apply for the rental. This fee is included in the final price and cannot be waived.


Two or more rentals may be combined to qualify for the longer-term rental rates. For example, a 12-day rental plus one 10-day rental qualifies for the 22-day rate, subject to the time between rentals not exceeding one calendar month.

Any extension is not approved unless Camperman have advised, and your rental agreement has been updated.

Rental period extensions are subject to future demand and availability and at sole discretion of Camperman staff.

Camperman does not allow the carriage of pets or any animals in their vehicles whilst on hire unless this has been arranged prior to collection. Carriage of unauthorised pets or animals will render the contract void, and the rental bond will be retained and used for cleaning and fumigating the vehicle.

What is CTP insurance?

Compulsory third-party insurance. All campervans have (CTP) insurance cover. CTP is mandatory in all states and territories and provides compensation for bodily injuries caused by vehicles.

CTP does not provide cover for any damage to the campervan.


Standard damage cover is included in the rental charges. Subject to these terms and conditions, we will indemnify you and any authorised driver for theft of the campervan, any damage (excluding tyre and windscreen damage) or third-party loss but you must pay up to the damage excess of $500 shown on the rental agreement for each accident or theft claim unless:

  1. We agree you were not at fault.

  2. The other party was insured, and their insurance company accepts liability.

The damage excess payable under clause 16.2 will be charged to your credit card:

  1. For single vehicle accidents

  2. If the campervan has been stolen, after we have made reasonable enquiries and, in our opinion, it is unlikely the campervan will be recovered.

  3. For accidents in which there is also third-party loss, after:

  4. A reasonable estimate of the third-party loss has been made.

  5. A repairer's estimate or tax invoice verifying the amount charged for damage has been obtained; and

  6. All documents verifying the third-party loss and damage have been sent to you.


All accident, attempted theft and theft claims will incur a claims administration fee in addition to the damage excess liability. This fee is to compensate Camperman for the labour and associated costs with processing your claim.


What is not covered:

  1. There is no damage cover, you and any authorised driver are liable for

  2. Damage or third-party loss arising from:

  3. A major breach of the rental contract

  4. The use of the campervan by any driver who is not an authorised driver or who is less than 18 or more than 85 years of age.

  5. A single vehicle accident

  6. Overhead damage

  7. Underbody damage

  8. Damage caused by immersion of the campervan in water.

There is also no damage cover for:

The full cost of replacing or repairing any accessories supplied by Camperman including, but not limited to, lost or broken keys, keyless start, and lost or broken remote-control devices.

Camperman assumes no liability for valuables left in or stolen from the vehicle or for loss or damage to property belonging to or in the custody of:

  1. Any relative, friend or associate of yours ordinarily residing with you or with whom you ordinarily reside.

  2. Any relative, friend or associate of an authorised driver

  3. Your employees

Please note: insurance on personal property is the hirer’s responsibility.

*we strongly recommend that you take out a travel insurance policy*


This is an additional package available for purchase. A $100 once off fee applies prior to or on pickup of the vehicle and covers the renter for any accidental damage to the windscreen and tyres. Please note only the front windscreen and the vehicles tyres are covered, everything else is excluded from damage cover.

Please take care of the campervans tyres as you are responsible for all tyre and windscreen damage not caused by reasonable wear and tear, up to $500 if you do not have tyre and windscreen cover.

The average cost to repair a windscreen chip is $150.00, and the average cost to fit a new windscreen is $480. The average cost for tyre replacement is $230.00. This information can vary depending on where in Australia you are located and has been provided as an example for your reference. We recommend taking out the tyre and windscreen cover.


At the start of rental, we will supply:

  • One LPG gas bottle

  • One 2kg fire extinguisher

The LPG gas bottle is not supplied full on pick-up. A refill can be purchased from Camperman for $25.00 from the following Camperman depots – cairns, Sydney, and Melbourne. The LPG gas bottle may be returned empty at the end of the rental.

The LPG gas bottle must not be used in conjunction with any appliances (lamps, BBQs etc.) Not provided by us. You are responsible for any damage to Camperman property, including to the campervan, caused by incorrect usage of the LPG gas bottle and gas fittings.


At the end of rental, you will be charged the replacement cost, plus an administrative fee, if the fire extinguisher has been used in a non-emergency situation. If the extinguisher was used in an emergency, you will not be charged.


Twenty-four-hour roadside assistance by major roadside assist organisations is provided free of charge for breakdowns (but not for accidents) and whilst we provide you with a campervan of acceptable quality and in good working order breakdowns do occur. 

Please note that hirers will be liable for fees in the event of human error – for example:

  1. Locked keys in the vehicle

  2. Flat battery

  3. Tyre changes

  4. Non-mechanical issues

  5. Use outside of contracted area of use, or damage caused by negligence.

If the campervan breaks down during the rental period, you are legally required to contact Camperman on the free helpline 1800 216 223 immediately.

You are not to leave the vehicle unless approved by Camperman, you are liable for the vehicle and must not abandon it regardless of if the vehicle was to breakdown and/or you were involved in an accident. You must contact Camperman and follow our instructions.

Subject to the Australian consumer law, in cases where the breakdown is our responsibility, our liability is limited to refunding the downtime that the campervan is in a repair shop and the time lost through not being able to drive the campervan.

No alternative accommodation or food items will be paid for during such down time. However, you may choose between Camperman refunding for the lost time or paying for accommodation with a maximum of $80 per night.

If you experience any issues during your hire, the issues must be reported to Camperman Australia as soon as possible and within 24 hours to give Camperman Australia the opportunity to rectify the problem during the rental period. Failure to notify Camperman Australia will compromise any claims for compensation. We do not accept liability for any claims submitted after this period. If Camperman is either not contacted or the hirer does not allow Camperman the opportunity to rectify the problem during the rental period, the hirer agrees that the problem is of such a minor nature that the hirer makes no claim for loss of time in respect of the rental period.


Any refund for on-road problems will be made at the end of the rental only. Down time will be calculated in hours, not days, the repair time will be calculated, and the downtime will be offered via email and credited to the credit card on file once the compensation document has been returned completed.

Complaints are discussed via email only and at the end of the rental.

If you wish to make a complaint, please send an email through to the head office within five business days of returning the vehicle. Please provide in writing exact details of the issues experienced along with any relevant evidence. The email will be discussed between management and the complaints team to provide a response to you within ten business days of receiving your complaint. There will be no additional offers of compensation for any delays in email replies.

Refunds of any kind and/or compensation offers can only be processed once we have received the signed refund document back completed.


Camperman’s vehicles are always fully maintained and serviced. However, we recognise that occasional breakdowns and small problems will occur. Camperman Australia has a 27/7 agreement on breakdown with all the major roadside service organisations. Should serious problems be encountered, the hirer must inform Camperman at the first possible opportunity and follow Camperman’s instructions. There is a free call helpline specifically for any problems – 1800 216 223.

Malfunction of radio/cassette players, DVD, GPS, stoves, air-conditioning units, refrigerator, water pumps are not considered a mechanical breakdown as the vehicle is still able to continue driving during your holiday. No alternative accommodation or food items will be paid for during the duration of these malfunctions. If one of these items does not function as it should, please contact Camperman immediately and we will organise for it to be inspected at one of our authorized regional depots and/or a repair shop where you are located/travelling to.


Minor repairs to mechanical items and oil consumption up to $50 will be reimbursed but you must keep and provide Camperman with the original tax invoices and receipts. Any entitlement to reimbursement is subject to there being no major breach of the rental contract.

You must inform Camperman before purchasing anything mechanical as we must note the file and advised if a follow inspection is required.

Please note: it can often be difficult to carry out repairs during weekends and holiday periods and/or in remote areas due to limited opening times and/or spare parts and Camperman will not provide refunds due to delays in obtaining parts for repairs.


Should you request roadside assistance, and it is detected that the cause was due to user error or damage through your own fault, you will be responsible for the $110 callout fee incurred by the roadside assistance, and any resulting repairs. If the fault with the vehicle is due to mechanical problems, or an issue not caused there will be no charge.


In the event of the campervan motor overheating and being driven continually until it can no longer function, or any damage to the campervan caused recklessly by you or an authorised driver, we have the right to terminate the rental contract immediately and to finalise and cancel further use of the campervan at your expense, including all towing, transport, and repairs.


Subject to the Australian consumer law, we are not responsible for:

  1. Replacing or compensating for spoiled food caused by a fridge malfunction or meals purchased due to the lack of food storage.

  2. Damage to your property caused by water leaks.

  3. Pre-organised tours you have missed due to campervan repairs or breakdowns, and we will not reimburse any non-refundable deposits or other associated costs incurred by you as a result.

*extra charges will apply if any of these services are provided at your request*

Failure to allow Camperman to rectify any on road issues including breakdowns, leaking vans, faulty/broken parts on the van will result in no refunds. This will make Camperman not liable for refunding the hirer.

A breach of any part of this clause 16.1 is a major breach of the rental contract. See clause 17.1 for further details.
