As with most motorhome hires, there is a 'Security Deposit' to be paid when you collect your motorhome πŸ’³

Our Security Deposit is £1000, or £1500 when travelling with pets 🐢

We require the Security Deposit to by a traceable means i.e. bank transfer or paid by debit or credit card - we are NOT able to accept cash πŸ™…β€β™‚οΈπŸ’°πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ

In some cases, where a hire is 7 days or less, we can pre-authorise the deposit rather than take it in full but this is entirely dependant on your banking provider 🀞 

We have been finding some providers have been increasing their security measures (which isn't a bad thing!), so please be sure to know the PIN number of the card you expect to be using, as well as ensure your mobile and email addresses are up to date as you may be sent a One Time Passcode [OTP] that we'll require to complete the transction πŸ”

Some providers allow you to authorise transactions via their app, so again, please be sure to have the app downloaded and registered for the card you intend to use for your Security Deposit on the day πŸ“±

As part of your Vehicle Induction, paying your Security Deposit should only take 2-3 minutes if you have followed our advice above, but if you don't have the app or know the PIN etc, this can cause a potentially lengthy delay in you getting away on your holiday ⏳

The Security Deposit can only be paid by a named driver(s),

i.e. someone who's ID we have verified to allow them to drive πŸš—

Please keep that in mind as we are unable to take the Security Deposit from a passenger, friend, relative, dog etc πŸ™…β€β™‚οΈ 

The Security Deposit is refunded in full providing there has been no damage to the motorhome πŸ€•


There are insurance products on the market, such as Collision Damage Waiver Insurance, which we advise you to consider taking out when hiring as you are liable for repair costs up to the value of your Security Deposit amount, regardless of fault e.g. broken wing mirrors.  

If we do need to retain part of your Security Deposit to cover fees, then an additional 10% will be added to the cost to cover the transaction fees we are charged for not returning the original amount taken. 

Accidental Damages

First of all, accidents can happen! πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

When given advanced notice, we will always aim to source parts/replacements and charge these (where applicable) at cost price to you with free labour costs providing James can undertake the repair(s) himself;

he's become somewhat of an expert over the years πŸ˜‰

Small things like a missing spoon or broken curtain hook we have in stock and replace at no cost to you πŸ‘Œ

Please be sure to make us aware of any damage in advance so we know what we're dealing with when the motorhome returns, it's likely going back out the very same day and we'd hate to have to impact someone else getting away on time ⌚

Honesty is certainly the best policy 😁

Picking up & Dropping off

We've heard the internet 'horror stories' about not getting deposits back post-hire; that's not our style!

Albeit, that's largely based on your motorhome coming back in the same condition it went out in πŸ˜‰

When you come to collect your motorhome,

we'll run you through our Vehicle Condition Inspection [VCI] where we'll agree on any pre-existing defects/damage. 🀝

For your own piece of mind, we actively encourage you to take pictures/videos of the motorhome condition too, filter free!

When you return, we focus all our attention on how great your holiday was - 'cause we're nosy! 😜

Afterwards, we'll check over the motorhome and aim to agree it's return condition is 'As Let'

allowing us to refund your Security Deposit right there, on the spot!*

We'll invite you again to take pictures/videos before leaving GO Forth! HQ

as the motorhome will then be fully washed, cleaned and valeted (which may uncover damage).

We simply ask for your honesty upfront if you are aware of any damage

as having to repair/correct any defects may impact our next hire going out 😒

We have had instances of people not telling us about any damage until they return, which then puts us on the back-foot and can jeopardise the next customers holiday which is not a nice position to be in 😌 

We're now quite the experts on temporary fixes,

but please give us as much notice as possible if anything does go wrong πŸ‘Œ

*[PLEASE NOTE: We've done our best to keep the return procedure time down to a minimum to let you get on your way, so reserve the right to notify you of any damage we discover during our deep-clean/turnover.  Deposits can take 3-5 business days to reach your account again - that's outwith our control]
