17-  CORONAVIRUS: NEW DISPOSAL

Due to the Covid-19, all the rental vehicles will follow the new disinfection procedure:

  • Upon motorhome delivery, after filling the vehicle check-in form with the Booking Camper staff, the RV will be treated with ozone.  The treatment can last up 15 minutes so motorhome delivery will be completed in about 30/40 minutes. The client is asked to show up on the day and time established in the rental agreement – by appointment only.
 
  • The client must return the vehicle on the date and time as established on the rental agreement. Once the vehicle has been dropped off, it will be treated with ozone. Booking Camper staff will proceed to check-out the RV and to its internal and external cleaning only after the ozone treatment is completed. Please note that internal cleaning will be carried out with products containing alcohol or chlorine, as required by italian law. Once Booking Camper team has finished the cleaning operations, the vehicle will be treated again with ozone. The new disinfection procedures have longer times than standard treatments, therefore the deposit cannot be returned immediately as usual, but in the following days, however within 7 days from the return of the vehicle.
 
The client will be asked to sign a self-certification stating that:
  • he is not positive for Covid-19
  • he has not accused acute respiratory infection in the last 21 days
  • he has not been subjected to the quarantine measure
  • that he has not been in contact with people who tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 21 days.
The declaration is personal therefore each person traveling on the motorhome will be required to sign it.
For minors, the self-certification must be signed by those who exercises parental authority.
 
Unfortunately, as it is not possible to keep the interpersonal safety distance of at least one metre into the vehicle itself, the rental motorhome explanation procedure cannot be performed. In order to replace the rental motorhome explanation procedure, the client will be provided with videos, already available during the booking process so you will still be instructed on the use of the rental vehicle. Anyway the 24/7 assistance service is still guaranteed.
 
Starting from 15/03/2020, the client will be asked to pay the balance at least 30 days before the departure date.
If the client does not pay the balance, the vehicle reservation will not be confirmed with the consequence that the 20% initial payment will be deducted as penalty.
