Pick Up generally starts at 9am, but we can usually accommodate just about anything with notice. Vans must be returned by noon after the last night of renting.  Please return your rental on time, so we can prepare it for the next renter.  This is very important.   A late fee of $50 for each hour late will be assessed. 


99% of the time you will receive the van you reserved.  In the rare case their is a mechanical malfunction, or delay, we reserve the right to place you into another van with no discount.


We are not responsible for travel times, suggested routes, general happiness, full campgrounds, weather, etc. Camping trips require a lot of planning so please show up prepared !  Having been immersed in the travel by van culture for many years, I can say that the jump in the car, and figure out from there attitude, can often lead to frustration and disappointment.


Outwesty rental Vans have 24 hour towing/ roadside assistance. Please beware that getting stuck is not part of roadside assistance. If you travel off the main roads you are responsible for all recovery, towing fees at that point . If a van is not repairable within 24 hours, we will get you a replacement van if one is available. The remainder of your trip will be refunded if we are unable to get another van at that time.


Insurance is purchased when booking and is on top of the daily rental fee shown.

Cleaning Fee

We do not charge a cleaning fee if the van is returned in the condition you found it in.  Pets are no longer allowed.  $100 is charged for excessively dirty vans.
