2017 - 2018 Flex Rates
Valid from 01 April 2017 - 31 March 2018


Flex Rates give you the very best available price for the motorhome you want to rent. If you book early and there are plenty of motorhomes available, you will pay a much lower price. If you book closer to departure date or book for a high demand period then the rate will be higher.
 
However, once booked, should you need to amend the dates, the prevailing rates will apply. We get advised of new flex rates each week. Therefore each quote only valid until the end of each week.

Please Contact us for this weeks Great Flex Rates


Available Vehicles for Hire


Rates are calculated per calendar day.

The flex rate for the entire duration of the rental is determined by the date of pick-up, location and date of booking. The daily rate will not change within one booking.

Amendments prior to the vehicle collection date will be re-calculated at the flex rate applicable on the date of amendment. This applies to changing the vehicle type, reducing the number of rental days, changing pick-up dates and/or changing the pick-up or drop-off location. Where the number of rental days is being extended prior to pick-up (days are being added on at the end of the rental with no change to the original pick up date), or the bonus pack is being added to or removed from the booking, the original flex rate, which applied at the time of the original booking, will apply.

Standard Rate Includes:

  • Unlimited kilometres
  • 15% GST*
  • Kitchen equipment
  • General equipment

Rental Duration:

  • Minimum and maximum rental periods apply and are subject to change.
  • Late pick-up or early return of vehicle does not entitle the customer to any refund of the unused portion of the rental.

  • If a customer wishes to extend the rental whilst on hire, they must first obtain authorisation from Mighty (call 0800 422 267). The rental extension is subject to vehicle availability. The cost of an extended rental must be paid by credit card over the telephone on confirmation of the rental extension. The rate charged may not reflect the original rate booked. Failure to obtain authorisation will result in a daily fee of NZD $150 in addition to the daily rate.


Delivery and Return:
The hirer acknowledges having received the Vehicle in a clean condition, with a full fuel tank and a full bottle of gas (if applicable).

Mighty reserves the right to charge the Customer a cleaning fee in the amount of NZD $250 if the Vehicle is not returned in a clean condition (at Mighty's sole discretion acting reasonably). This includes smoking related cleaning, as smoking is not permitted at any time in the Vehicle or animal related cleaning as animals are not permitted in the Vehicle (with the exception of registered guide dogs).

For Your Protection:
New Zealand legislation provides limited coverage for personal injury. Mighty does not accept any liability for personal injuries sustained during the rental, nor for any loss or damage to personal belongings or property of the Customer (or any person or entity related to the hirer). Mighty strongly recommends the hirer takes out personal travel insurance to cover any injury or loss.

Vehicle Liabilty :

Mighty does not accept any liability for personal injuries sustained during the rental, nor for any loss or damage to any personal belongings or property of the customer (or any person or entity related to the hirerr). Mighty strongly recommend that all people travelling in New Zealand take out personal travel insurance.

In the USA a liability is referred to as the "deductible".

All vehicles are insured for the damage to the vehicle or to the property of a third party. The customer is responsible for the first NZD $3,500 ("the liability") for the Jackpot and the Double Down campervans and NZD $5,000 ("the liability") for all other campervans of cost of any damage to third party property or to the rented vehicle, including single vehicle accident (does not include single vehicle roll over), windscreen and tyre damage, towing and recovery costs, theft, fire, break-in or vandalism with the exception of the 'Exclusions'. This also includes the cost of the daily rental for the period the vehicle is being repaired. In addition to these costs, an administration fee of NZD $60 may apply, per claim. The liability applies in respect of each claim, not rental. The NZD $3,500 or NZD $5,000 liability can be reduced by purchasing the Liability Reduction Option or the Mighty Inclusive Pack.

Liabilty Reduction Option:
NZD $29 (maximum charge NZD $1,450) for the Jackpot and the Double Down NIL
NZD $39 (maximum charge NZD $1,950) for all other campervans NIL

When the Liability Reduction Option has been purchased, the hirer will have no liability at all with the exception of the 'exclusions'.
