Wicked Campers Liability Reduction Options offer customers the opportunity to minimise the Bond required to hire a vehicle. Please Note that all Bond Refunds can take up to 14 Working Days to Process.
What is a Bond? A Bond is a security deposit payable at time of vehicle pickup. It is the same as a Bond when renting an Apartment, if the vehicle is returned in good order, the Bond is refunded to the hirer’s account.
Is the Bond actually deducted from my account? Yes, the full Bond amount will be deducted from your account at the collection depot on day of pickup.
How long does it take to refund my Bond? If you return your vehicle on-time and in good condition (& clean), then your Bond will be refunded back onto the same card within 14 Working Days.
Why does Standard Liability Reduction incur a $100 Fee? This $100 fee applies to any hirer paying a $3000 or $5000 Bond. It is non-refundable and covers the costs we have to absorb from currency fluctuations and International Transaction Fees.
I don’t have a Credit Card, only a Debit Card? If you decide to take Liability Reduction B, you will be required to provide a valid credit card at time of pickup. This is for the Pre-Authorisation and a security imprint (in case the vehicle is stolen). If you do not have a Credit Card, then you will need to pay a $500 Bond from your Debit Card at time of collecting the vehicle.
