This cannot be done with cash, a debit card or prepaid travel money card. It can only be on a credit card owned by the primary driver who is present in the office at the time of pickup. This authorization will be cancelled upon the return of the vehicle if it is deemed undamaged, clean, all equipment is returned and in the same condition as when rented, and the vehicle is returned with a full tank of gas, as per the terms of this Rental Agreement. A credit card in the driver’s name is required to rent a Lost Campers vehicle.

If you DO NOT have a major credit, you must speak with a rental associate BEFORE sending a reservation request.

Lost Campers’ vehicles are designed for two or five-person travel. The rental cost includes two drivers. Lost Campers does not charge any additional fees for the second driver.

Vehicle Pick Up and Drop Off:

Lost Campers reserves the right to adjust pick up times according to availability. We stagger pick up times to avoid long wait times. If an adjustment is required, we do try to keep the amended time as close to the original request as possible. We ask that you try to be on time for your scheduled pickup. If a delay arises please contact us to assist you with rescheduling. We take our first pick up of the day no earlier than 9 AM and the last pick up of the day no later than 5:30 PM. Any delay past 5:30 PM will be subject to a rescheduling of the van pick up to the following business day.

Lost Campers rental rates are based on a 24 hour period which begins at the time of pick up. Vehicles are available for pick up at the designated time on the first day of the rental. Vehicles must be returned by the agreed time on the drop-off date. A one-hour grace period will be given for the late return of a vehicle. A full-day rental charge will be applied once the vehicle is more than 2 hours late. No refunds will be granted for late pickups or early return of vehicles.

Minimum/Maximum Rental Period:

The minimum rental period is 3 days in LOW season, 4 days in MID seasons and 5-7 days in HIGH season. Exceptions may apply. The minimum rental period may be longer over busy periods (usually last half of July and early August or around festival dates). We are able to rent our Campers for up to 4-6 months at a time. Special conditions apply. For lengthy rentals please email us for details, so we can provide you with the best possible quote and further information.

Lost Campers USA Terms on Mileage:

Daily Rental Rates include 100 free miles per day. Extra miles will be charged at 25c per mile upon return. The following mileage packages can be pre-selected and purchased at a daily mileage rate for additional miles.

  • Double the included mileage for $19 a day which gives you a total of 200 miles per day cumulatively.
  • Unlimited miles can be purchased for $25 per day for Sierra and Hotel Sierra only.  
  • Wanderer class rentals can request a 300 mile per day included mileage package for $25 per day. This van class is not eligible for unlimited miles.

*We do not offer mileage packages for lengthy rentals exceeding 26 days or more. 100 free miles per day will be included in the daily rate to average out over the course of the rental and any excess mileage is 25 cents per mile paid upon return. This is typically more cost-effective than a daily mileage rate on a long rental.
