About campervan and motorhome rentals

From June 1, 2020 campervans rentals that are made through the platform will not be insured through Fat Llama.

You can still advertise your campervan to rent on the Fat Llama platform, and we will continue to facilitate payment made from renters. This rental, however, will not be covered by insurance for use by the renter using Fat Llama's guarantee. Fat Llama will continue to verify the identity and financial viability of renters, but any verified rental will not have insurance applied for use nor will the driving license of that renter be confirmed as valid for a campervan rental. It will be your responsibility to ensure that the renter is valid to drive the campervan.

We are able to make a few recommendations to help you feel secure with your rental.

Consider getting Self-drive Hire Insurance that allows Campervan owners to hire out their campervans to other people. Several companies offer policies such as Camperbug.

Ask the renter to send you a photo their driving license to confirm that the dates are valid.

Consider having the renter take out their own short-term insurance which sites such as TempCover or DayInsure offer.

Seasonality: Some owners may charge different prices depending on the time of year. Please note that if you're booking in the high season, you may be quoted more per day than the listed rate.

Renter responsibility: Any local authority penalties incurred during a rental (e.g. parking, congestion) are the sole responsibility of the borrower.
