The child seat will have to be placed on the bench at the dining table. Please let us know if you bring your own or if you would like to rent a baby/child or booster seat.
Is it possible to purchase more than one km package in the hire?
You can purchase as many km packages as you wish before the start of your trip, but we recommend not to drive more than 200 km per day. Your motorhome trip is supposed to be a vacation and not a highway chase, right?
Is there any refund if part of a mileage package is not used?
We have two kilometer packages available (500 km for $190 and 1000 km for $370). Km packages can be purchased at the time of booking and/or at the time of pick up. Please note that there is no refund for unused kilometers. Extra km are calculated at $0.41 per km upon return of the motorhome.
