Rentals are permitted for a minimum period of 7 nights and a maximum of 40 nights. Vehicles cannot be driven on non-public or unpaved roads, underground (due to propane regulations), into Manhattan, or into Death Valley during summer months. Travel into mainland Mexico is not recommended, and an additional insurance is payable. Travel into Alaska is at your own risk. Failure to comply will invalidate your insurance.
Drivers must be 21 years or older and possess a valid driver's licence. A major credit card and passport are required for identification prior to rental. There are no charges for additional, qualified drivers but all must be listed on, and sign, the rental contract. El Monte cannot provide child or infant seats.
Depot hours are generally 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday; however they can vary by location and season. All depots are closed on public holidays. Motorhomes cannot be collected on arrival following an international or long domestic flight into the USA; an overnight prior to pick up is compulsory. Except in respect of Priority AM Departure and the additional supplement paid for the morning departure privilege, vehicles can be collected between 1pm and 4pm. Vehicles may be returned between 8am and 11am. Any late returns will be subject to a late return fee.
A tour of the vehicle and its working parts or video demonstration is required to acquaint you with the operation of the vehicle before departure.
El Monte offers the option of pre-booking GPS/satellite navigation (subject to availability). We highly recommend that you include it in your rental or, should you have your own with U.S. mapping, we suggest you take it with you when you travel.
Campground Resort Pass:
The Campground Resort Pass allows unlimited camping for the length of your rental at a choice of over 170 Thousand Trails and Encore RV Resorts across the USA. Allowing you to pre-plan and pre-book your overnight stays or stop when and where you choose, this pass can save time, money and hassle. Please let us know if you would like a Resort Pass included in your rental.
Mileage can be pre-purchased in order to save you money. It is advised that you estimate the mileage you are likely to cover and pre-book a ‘block’ before you travel or select an unlimited mileage package for the greatest flexibility. Unused mileage is non-refundable.
