Explorent requires that you have full and comprehensive insurance on your vehicle. This would ensure that no matter what may happen while your caravan is out on hire, you will be covered. It is strongly advised that before you rent out your vehicle that you contact your insurer and inform them that it will be hired out. They can then advise you as to whether you are covered on your current policy or if any additional changes need to be made.
Just imagine that in the unlikely event of something going wrong you find that you are not covered buy some or other small print clause.
If your vehicle is in anyway damaged during the rental period it is essential that the damage is reported to Explorent immediately on discovery of the damage. We will then start the claim process and assist you in getting the damage repaired/replaced. You are entitled to deduct the sum incurred in damages from the deposit of the renter.
If the amount exceeds the value of the deposit you should then institute an insurance claim with your insurer. The excess payable on that claim will then be deducted from the renters deposit. This point is why it is essential to have full and comprehensive insurance.
We understand that your caravan may be your pride and joy and it is 100% acceptable to insist that you tow the vehicle yourself.

Before you accept the request, take a little time to get to know about the renter. If they are going to be towing the vehicle then it is important that you ask them for the documents and information about the towing vehicle. Also try to get to know them as much as you can to see if they are the perfect fit for your vehicle.
