• Do you have access to a color printer and scanner?
• Are you able to get all requested documents and information to us within 5 days after your booking request?
• Do you agree to the $75 fee for an after-hours pick up?
• Do you have your own insurance that covers both Collision (our van) and Liability/Third Party (damage done to another person, their property and their vehicle)?
• If you don’t have your own insurance, do you agree to take ours so that you have full insurance during your trip?
• Are you able to pay the full balance of your rental in the 5 days following your booking request?
• Are you able to get to our depot from Mon-Sat 6am-9am or 5pm-9pm, or on Sun from 6am-9pm PST. (We are unable to offer after-hours pick ups outside of these hours.)
• Can you have a $1000 security deposit held on a major credit or debit card with the primary driver’s name on it? (Amex, Mastercard, Visa or Discover only.)
• Do you agree to our general rental terms?
• Is your pick up date at least 7 days from today?
If you answered, “yes,” to all of these questions, an after-hours pick up is a great fit for you.
If you answered, “no,” to any of these questions, we’d be happy to get you on the road for an in-office pick up during business hours.
After reading through the above information, submit your after-hours pick up booking request through our website. If you have already submitted a booking request, we may have already emailed you.
If we have a van available for your requested dates, we’ll charge you the 25% non-refundable booking deposit and email you. (This does not confirm your booking.)
If we do not have a van available for your request, we will email you with alternatives before taking any payments.
NOTE: once we have emailed your booking confirmation to you, you have 5 days to get the requested documentation back to us. If you are not able to do this we can move your pick up to during office hours and remove the after-hours pick up fee.
Scan and email the following to us. Please note we cannot accept photos. Everything must be scanned:
Scanned, color photocopy of the front and back. One for each driver. Max 2 drivers per contract.
Scanned, color photocopy of the front cover and the photo page inside. For any driver whose driver’s license was not issued in the USA. One for each driver.
International Driving Permit (IDP) or Certified Translation of driver’s license
For any driver’s license not written in English. Please send our Reservation’s Team a photo of the front and back of your license and they’ll tell you if we can accept it without a translation. Reservations@lostcampersusa.com
If sending IDP, we need a scanned copy of the outside cover and inside page with photo and applicable stamps. We need to see the date of issue and the date of expiration.
Proof of insurance
If you are using your own insurance that covers both Collision (our van) and Liability/Third Party (damage done to another person, their property and their vehicle) you need to send us a copy of your insurance policy showing that you are covered during the rental. Please highlight the section in your insurance that shows this proof, and tell us what page to look at, especially if your insurance is in another language.
If you have proof of either Collision or Liability insurance, but not proof of the other, you will need to purchase the other insurance from us.
We will accept an auto policy, traveller’s insurance and credit card insurance for either or both.
If you are purchasing our CDW or SLI, this is considered proof of either. If you are purchasing both our CDW & SLI, this is considered proof of full insurance.
