Excess and Travel Insurance advice to all our customers for hiring and driving our motorhomes
Damage Excess (often described as a security deposit with other companies)
At LMH Ltd as with other hire companies, we require a damage excess (often classed as a security deposit) to be authorised prior to your departure, as per our Terms and Conditions. The amount of damage excess will be pre-authorised from your credit or debit card on arrival at our location when collecting the motorhome.
This damage excess covers the cost of any loss or damage from any one incident that has occurred to the motorhome whilst it has been on hire and will clear providing our mo-torhome is received back to LMH Ltd in the condition it was received to you.
Please note you must have the funds available in your account at collection.
Warning…The motorhome cannot and will not be released until the funds are pre-authorised.
Travel/Holiday Insurance for extra Protection
As with any holiday, before travelling we always advise customers to take out their own holiday/travel insurance to provide the appropriate cover and level of protection for your family. Please note it is important you personally make sure you get the correct level of cover when you hire a motorhome. We ALWAYS advise customers to take out a holiday/travel insurance policy – covering motorhome hire.
For most customers, this is the first time of visiting Scotland, but more importantly, it is the first time some of you have ever driven on the opposite side of the road and/or in a larger vehicle than you are used to driving.
We recommend that ALL customers are fully aware of their liability i.e. you are liable for the first £1000 (£1500 for 21-24 years) of damage to the motorhome per incident in the event of an accident/any damage occurring (regardless of blame).
