Owners determine rates for their rental. Factors that might determine rate include: type of RV, duration, amenities, location, or delivery options. Rates are subject to change by the owner and some will increase or decrease rates based on demand.
Additionally, Good Sam RV Rentals charges a booking fee for your reservation. The fee is 5% but may be adjusted or discounted. All fees will be clearly itemized before you confirm your booking request.
We want to ensure rentals are safe for everyone. Renters must be at least 25 years old and possess a valid driver's license. A driving background check is required from all renters and they must be verified prior to reservation. RV owners have the final authority on who rents their equipment.
Listings are available online with rvrentals.com. You can search through listings with a variety of different search criteria including location or type of RV. Check the calendar for that listing to see what days are open for rental. From there, you’ll be prompted to reserve your dates and contact the owners.
In the listing details, owners will specify if delivery is an option for their rental. An additional cost per mile is included with the option—determined by the owner—and we recommend discussing delivery details prior to rental. This might include towing capability and accessories if the rental is towable, or how far owners are willing to go to deliver a rental.
We know the unexpected occurs; we want to provide renters and owners alternatives in the event you have to cancel. Check out our cancellation policy for details.The sooner you can inform owners about a cancellation, the better.
We hope you never experience a situation like this. If an owner has to cancel for any reason following a reservation, a full refund will be issued to the renter.
Renters are required to pick from one of three insurance options with varying costs. These policies cover physical damage to the rented RV due to covered accidents, along with liability protection. Coverage limits and deductibles vary depending on which package you choose as renter. These details and prices will be clearly presented during the renting process, before you comit to a rental. Normal wear and tear, maintenance, personal affects, or mechanical issues are excluded. If you want to verify what coverage your personal insurance may cover on a rental, please check with your Insurance agent or carrier.
