Many motorhome rental companies advertise a lower daily hire rate to get your attention then charge you for all the extras such as camping tables and chairs, child seats, and snow chains. In fact, some go as far as charging extra for motorhome cleaning, compulsory insurance, additional drivers, a full gas bottle, linen and bedding, motorhome registration, paying by credit card, travelling one way plus many other creative ways of extracting money from you. If you’re not prepared for the extra fees you may be charged when you pick up your motorhome rental, you can start your holiday feeling ripped off.
You may also find motorhome rental companies that offer an “all-inclusive” rate as well as a standard rate. The all-inclusive rate is a higher daily rate which usually includes many of the extras that are otherwise add-ons such as zero motorhome insurance excess (deductible), camping table and chairs, child seats and snow chains. It may also include a full gas bottle, and one-way fee. This may sound like a good deal but beware, it may not be. It pays to do the maths based on your planned length of travel as the all-inclusive motorhome rental rate may be more expensive than opting for the standard rate plus additional extras.
We don't bother with all-inclusive rates because most of the items other motorhome rental companies call 'additional extras' come standard with your Wilderness motorhome rental.
Tip: When comparing motorhome rental companies, be sure to check all hidden costs first.
