A reservation is only binding once the booking is confirmed by TFT Campervan Hire by email, and a non-refundable deposit of £150 has been received. Settlement of the remaining balance will be due four weeks prior to departure. Payment is taken by bank transfer or PayPal (PayPal fees will apply). Vehicles will not be released without full payment being completed.

We advise all hirers to take out their own holiday insurance to cover any eventualities. There will be no refund in the event of early return e.g. illness, accident.
In the event of the van breaking down and being un-drive-able, we will provide you with details for contacting Volkswagen breakdown assistance, who will attempt to fix the vehicle or take you back to the camp/recovery back to us. Also contact us immediately and we will see what we can do. In the case of you being without the van you will be refunded on a pro-rata basis.
