Security Deposits, Liability Reduction Options & Additional Drivers
At Bunk Campers, (as with most hire companies), we require a security deposit for the purposes set out in our Terms and Conditions. The amount for the security deposit will be pre-authorised from your credit or debit card at check-in.
You are required to have the funds available in your account at check-in to cover the security deposit. The vehicle cannot be released until the funds are pre-authorised.
What is a motorhome hire security deposit?
The security deposit covers the cost of any loss or damage from any one incident that has occurred to the vehicle whilst it has been on hire. It is authorised at check-in and will be released providing your vehicle is returned in the condition it was received in. At Bunk Campers, security deposits are authorised in the currency of the hire depot.
Please note, it can take up to 28 days for the security deposit to return to your account
Liability Reduction Options
Just like travel insurance is an important purchase for your holiday, it is important for you to get the right level of cover when you hire a campervan or motorhome. For many, it is a new experience driving on the opposite side of the road or in a vehicle that you are not used to. That is why we provide a number of different options for your peace of mind on your campervan road trip. We recommend that all guests are comfortable with their level of liability in the event of damage.
You can purchase liability reduction options at the time of booking, during online check-in or when you come to collect your campervan. Have a look at some of the various additional protection options available from Bunk Campers:
*Please note liability cover options are not available for young drivers and apply to one incident only. Terms & Conditions apply

The High Road- Reduce your liability to £250/€250
This cover is our highest liability reduction option for peace of mind on the road.
Charged daily, it allows you to reduce your liability to £250/€250 in the event of any damage to the camper.
It is popular with customers looking the highest protection and those not experienced in driving campervans and motorhomes or driving on the left hand side of road.
The Middle Road – Reduce your liability by 50%
Meet in the middle by reducing your liability by 50%.
This liability reduction option, charged daily, allows you to reduce your security deposit by 50%. That means your liability in the event of damage to the vehicle, will only be 50% of the standard security deposit. For example, if the standard security deposit and liability on your chosen camper is £1500, this will be halved to just £750.
The 50% liability reduction is popular with anyone who wants additional protection on the road.
The Low Road – Basic option
The basic option. This keeps the security deposit or liability as standard for your vehicle and ranges from £1,500-£2,000/€1,500-€2,000.
Windscreen, Mirror and Tyre Cover
Get on the road with our cover for windscreen, mirrors & tyre damage. Chips and cracks to the windscreen and mirror, as well as tyre punctures can occur to even the most careful driver. At Bunk Campers we don’t want the unavoidable to cost you, that’s why we offer this option so that you can drive with confidence.
Additional Drivers – Share the Driving Seat!
Having an additional driver can ease the pressure on the main driver. Share the driving, share the responsibility and take your time to enjoy the open road. With an additional driver you can;
- Take fewer breaks – Get to your destination faster!
- Travel further – See more of the land!
- Share the experience of the open road!
You can add up to three additional drivers to your trip.
