You will receive your deposit from your renter in advance by bank transfer or in cash when you handover the camper. Make sure you receive your deposit in time to avoid any problems during handover.
You retain the money during the rental period and pay it back to the renter in full if your vehicle is returned to you damage free. The repayment will also be recorded in the handover report.
If there is damage to your vehicle, as the owner, you are entitled to initially retain the full deposit. When the claim is settled by the insurance, the excess will be covered by the deposit. If the cost of the damage is less than the excess, the repairs will be paid for from the deposit. Any remaining money from the deposit should be reimbursed to the renter in good time.
