A ‘non-refundable’ deposit of £100.00 is payable
to confirm a booking. A booking is not confirmed until funds have cleared
into our bank account or cash has been received. The balance of any
rental payment is due four weeks (28 days) before the rental start
date. A booking made less than four weeks before the start date must
be paid in full by credit or debit card via paypal.co.uk or bank transfer. Confirmation of late booking by email (without booking form) reserves the van for your holiday, and makes you liable for payment in the event of cancellation, if we are unable to fill your cancelled slot.
All reasonable complaints about significant issues we receive are thoroughly investigated (Escape Campers regard reasonable cleanliness, Safety and Mechanical Reliability as significant) and customers are kept informed at each stage of the investigation. In order to bring matters to the attention of us at the earliest possible opportunity you should raise any matter that relates directly to your van as it arises so that matters can be dealt with there and then. Complaints should be intimated to Escape Campers as soon as possible to give us the opportunity to correct any deficiency. Should the matter remain unresolved after a reasonable time has been allowed for action, you should report the matter to us without delay and confirm the same in writing as soon as possible thereafter. We would consider 28 days to be a reasonable time to confirm the complaint to us and in the event of the complaint not being intimated in time, this may impede the future investigation and could affect your entitlement to compensation.
