Insurance Cover

These Terms of Insurance form part of the Terms and Conditions of Booking and Hire. It shall be a condition of hire that these Terms of Insurance have been read, understood and accepted in their entirety and without any change or modification at the time that a booking is made and repeated at the time that the hire commences when entering into the Vehicle Rental Agreement.

In these Terms of Insurance the words shall have the same meaning as in the Terms and Conditions of Booking and Hire.
The Insurance is with Liverpool Victoria (LV). New Forest Safari is the insured party and the Hirer is provided with the following insurance cover:

  1. Fully Comprehensive motor insurance to drive only the Vehicle subject to a £500.00 excess (such excess is recoverable from the Hirer);
  2. Theft of the Vehicle subject to an excess amounting to 25% of the claim (such excess is recoverable from the Hirer); and
  3. Damage to or destruction of the Vehicle arising from conversion of or caused by any cooking and/or heating equipment (gas heating or hob, barbecue etc.) subject to an excess amounting to 25% of the claim (such excess is recoverable from the Hirer).

The Insurance does not include The Hirer’s personal property or the Living Equipment. No claim for loss of or damage to these items may be claimed under the Insurance and, in consequence, the Hirer shall remain responsible for the full cost of any loss of or damage to the Living Equipment.

Driving the Vehicle is restricted solely to persons (the Hirer and the Driver) shown on the Booking Form and the Vehicle Rental Agreement. Generally, the following persons are not permitted to drive the Vehicle:
