This Agreement is made on the date specified on the Rental Agreement between Travellers Autobarn and the Hirer whose name and address appears on the Rental Agreement. Travellers Autobarn and the Hirer agree as follows:
You are obliged to read this document thoroughly and ask for clarification of any points you do not understand.
1 Definitions 1.1 “Agreement” means the Rental Agreement and these Terms and Conditions. “New Zealand Consumer Law”
means the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 and Fair Trading Act (where applicable). “Consumer” means a consumer within the meaning of section 2 of the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993. “Hirer” means the person or persons nominated as the hirer, additional drivers and any person whose credit card is presented for payment or who is otherwise responsible for any payment associated with the rental or the security bond. “Travellers Autobarn” means Travellers Autobarn Limited. “Vehicle” means the initial Vehicle and any replacement Vehicle hired by the Hirer and includes all equipment, accessories, tyres, tools or any additional hire items. “We” means Travellers Autobarn and “our” has a corresponding meaning. “You” means the Hirer under this Agreement and “your” has a corresponding meaning.
2 Vehicle Condition, Pick-up and Drop-off 2.1 The Vehicle is delivered to you in good operating condition. Subject to your rights under this Agreement, you
agree to return the Vehicle in the same condition (except for ordinary wear and tear, not including windscreen or tyre damage) together with all tools, tyres, accessories and equipment to the location specified on the Rental Agreement and on the date there specified (or sooner, if demanded by Travellers Autobarn).
2.2 Vehicle pick ups are available anytime between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm Monday to Friday, and between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm on Saturdays. Vehicle drop offs must be before 3:00 pm Monday to Friday and before 12:30 pm Saturday. No pick ups or drop offs are provided on Sundays and public holidays.
2.3 Please note that our branches are subject to shortened low season opening hours. These hours are 9:00 am to 4:00 pm weekdays and closed Saturday and Sunday. Low season is from 1st May to 31st August.
2.4 There is no refund for late pick up or early return of a Vehicle. Hirers are charged for the length of time booked, not the actual time used. We strongly recommend that all Hirers take out their own premium travel insurance in respect of the risk that a Hirer, for reasons of their own, may need to return a Vehicle earlier than expected.
2.5 A 59 minute grace period after the return time stated on the Rental Agreement applies to all rentals, should the Vehicle not be returned within the grace period a $250 fee applies. Vehicles overdue may also incur an additional $250 fee per day and be reported to the police as stolen.
3 Change of Drop off Location 3.1 Any change of return location can only be authorised by Travellers Autobarn Central Reservations and depends
solely on future bookings and availability. The change of drop off location is not confirmed as approved until after the change of location fee has been accepted, paid and you have received written confirmation. Please note; a casual conversation with a Travellers Autobarn staff member does not constitute authorisation. An approved change of location may attract a fee to a maximum of $500. Please communicate all change of Drop off location requests by calling Central Reservations on the 0800 348 348 Customer Assistance Line at the earliest possible opportunity as all requests are subject to availability.
3.2 Any unauthorised change/s of location drop off will see the Hirer responsible for the entire cost of relocating the Vehicle to its intended location plus any hire fees that are foregone by Travellers Autobarn by reason of the Vehicle being unavailable for subsequent hire at the agreed drop off location.
4 Rental Duration, Kilometres and One Way Fees 4.1 For all Vehicles, day one of the rental period is the day of pick up, regardless of the time, and the day the Vehicle
is returned is counted as the final day also regardless of the time. 4.2 The minimum rental period is 5 days for all Vehicles (same city return). One way rentals have different minimum
rental periods between 10 and 35 days. 4.3 A one way fee may apply; this fee may vary according to location, seasonality and length of booking. 4.4 All Vehicles have unlimited kilometres included in the price. 4.5 Rates are in New Zealand Dollars and are inclusive of GST.
5 Multiple Rentals 5.1 Consecutive rentals can be combined to qualify for a long term discount rate provided travel is within a three
month period. If drop off of a Vehicle and pick up of a new Vehicle occurs on the same day then each will be charged separately per respective rental. Multiple rentals are treated as separate rentals under the one way fee and minimum rental period conditions.
6 Rental Extensions and Amendments 6.1 If you, the Hirer, wish to extend the rental whilst the Vehicle is on hire, you must first obtain written authorisation
from Travellers Autobarn’s Central Reservations. A casual conversation on the topic with a Travellers Autobarn staff branch member does not constitute authorisation. Your requested extension is not authorised until it is expressly approved and confirmed in writing, and you have nominated a specific date and the extension has been paid in full. Calling a day or two before you are due to drop off and requesting an extension may result in
your request being rejected owing to future bookings of your Vehicle. Please communicate all extension requests by calling Central Reservations on the 0800 348 348 Customer Assistance Line at the earliest possible opportunity as all requests are subject to availability.
6.2 No refunds will be given for any booking amendments to the rental dates within 28 days of collection (if the length of hire is shortened) and the rental will be charged at the number of days originally booked. A relocation fee may apply if the collection or return location is amended within 28 days of Vehicle pick up.

circumstances dictate. This shall not constitute a breach of contract and shall not entitle you to any refund. 7.2 Should you decide to downgrade your Vehicle from that originally booked you will not be entitled to any refund.

21 Road Restrictions and Island Trips 21.1 Vehicles may only be driven on sealed roads/bitumen roads or well maintained access roads less than 500 metres
long to recognised campgrounds and parking areas. Travel on unsealed roads voids any waiver of liability under clause 26 of this Agreement and renders the Hirer liable in accordance with clause 27.1.2 of this Agreement for the total cost of any Damage that is caused or contributed to by reason of travelling, or having travelled, on unsealed roads.
21.2 The Hirer releases and indemnifies Travellers Autobarn in accordance with clause 27.2 of this Agreement from and against all actions, claims, demands, losses, damages, costs, expenses, harm or other misadventure which the Hirer may suffer or incur or for which the Hirer may become liable as a consequence of any use of the Vehicle on unsealed roads.

Vehicles are also not permitted on all ski field access roads between 1st June and 31st October. (Unauthorised travel will void any waiver of liability under clause 26 of this Agreement and renders the Hirer liable in accordance with clause 27.1.2 of this Agreement. The Hirer will also be responsible for all costs associated with the rental, including servicing, breakdown and recovery as well as loss of bond).
21.5 If Travellers Autobarn has reason to believe that your Vehicle may have been driven on unsealed roads the Vehicle bond will be retained until a complete inspection of the Vehicle determines whether any damage has occurred. The Hirer will be liable for any damage found. If it is determined that the Vehicle has been off-road but no damage is evident you will still be charged $250 for breach of duty.

22.2 TRAVELLERS AUTOBARN ON-ROAD ASSISTANCE. Travellers Autobarn provides a Customer Assistance Line contact number, 0800 348 348.
22.3 TRAVELLERS AUTOBARN CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE LINE is available If you have any questions at all during your rental. This service operates 09:00 to 18:00 Monday to Saturday and 11:00 to 15:00 on Sundays and Public Holidays.
22.4 WEEKEND & PUBLIC HOLIDAY LIMITED SERVICE - The Travellers Autobarn CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE TELEPHONE LINE is offered as a courtesy to Hirers who may find themselves in desperate need of our support. On weekends, most support services such as mechanical garages, etc are closed and therefore limited help is available, in any case.
22.5 Please restrict weekend calls to the CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE LINE to EMERGENCY CALLS ONLY. 22.6 If your call relates to administration, extensions, accounts enquiries, etc or minor mechanical issues please call
Monday to Friday 09:00 to 17:00. 22.7 Travellers Autobarn does not offer a 24/7 customer assistance line.
23 Repairs 23.1 Travellers Autobarn Vehicles are maintained and serviced to a high standard, however this does not prevent the
occasional mechanical malfunction. Minor repairs of a mechanical nature costing less than $100 may be effected
without our authorisation and will be reimbursed upon completion of the rental if tax invoices are produced. 23.2 If you experience any problems, even minor, you must ring the 0800 348 348 Customer Assistance Line for further assistance and advice. For amounts over $100, Travellers Autobarn must be informed and our approval must be sought and obtained before undertaking repairs. We will usually approve repairs provided the Hirer was not directly responsible for the damage, but reserve the right to approve or decline repairs on a case by
case basis. Tax invoices must be submitted or the claim will not be paid.
23.3 In all cases the responsibility of Travellers Autobarn is limited to refunding the time that the Vehicle was actually in repair. This can be in the form of a rental extension or refund of hire fees. No alternative accommodation, travel costs, or food items will be paid during downtime. Replacement Vehicles will not be supplied.
23.4 Our responsibility to provide a rental extension or refund of hire fees is conditional on any problems associated with the Vehicle, including equipment failure, being reported to Travellers Autobarn as soon as possible and within 24hrs in order to give Travellers Autobarn the opportunity to rectify the problem.
23.5 Malfunctions of stereo systems, cabin lights, air-conditioning, fridges, microwaves, sink water pumps etc., are not considered mechanical breakdowns and downtime will not be paid.
23.6 Travellers Autobarn does not accept responsibility for towing and retrieval of accident damaged Vehicles.
24 Fuel and Fluids 24.1 For your convenience the fuel tank is full on pick up and should be returned full by the Hirer. The charge for re-
filling is $2 per litre plus $50. This covers the additional labour time taken to refill the Vehicle. Fuel receipts must be produced on return of the Vehicle to show that you have refilled the Vehicle within 10KMs of return location.
24.2 IMPORTANT – OIL & WATER LEVELS
The Hirer is responsible to check, at least daily, and to maintain all fluid levels and immediately to rectify and report to Travellers Autobarn by calling the 0800 348 348 Customer Assistance Line any defect of which you become aware, however slight. Topping up a Vehicle that is losing water somehow is not rectifying the problem. Rectification means a fit and proper diagnosis and repair. Travellers Autobarn cannot stress enough your responsibility in this regard. Continued operation of the Vehicle after a defect has occurred may lead to serious consequential damage to the engine for which you may be held responsible under clause 27.1 of this Agreement.
****If you are adding more than 1⁄2 litre of water to your car every day YOU HAVE A PROBLEM AND NEED TO CALL US IMMEDIATELY (Immediately = NOW, not 2 days time) ***********************
24.3 IMPORTANT – AVOIDANCE of OVERHEATING
I have read, understood and agree to this clause Hirer’s Initials X_____
I have read, understood and agree to this clause Hirer’s Initials X_____
We cannot stress enough the risks of continued driving if your car begins to overheat, or if it has a known cooling system problem of any kind. If your temperature gauge moves in a direction that is a departure from normal, stop immediately, investigate and call Travellers Autobarn on the 0800 348 348 Customer Assistance Line. Do NOT wait for it to cool and drive again as you may cause further catastrophic damage to your engine, for which you WILL be liable. Driving with an inoperative temperature gauge voids any waiver of liability by Travellers Autobarn and may result in the Hirer being held liable if overheating occurs.
24.4 IMPORTANT – WATER CROSSING & CHARGES
Do not drive across flooded roadways. Regardless of any agreed waiver of liability by Travellers Autobarn, the Hirer remains fully responsible for any damage caused as a result of driving or immersing the Vehicle in water.
I have read, understood and agree to this clause Hirer’s Initials X_____
25 Property Damage 25.1 The Hirer acknowledges that Travellers Autobarn holds a contract of insurance (“Our Policy”) for accidental
damage to the Vehicle or legal liability for loss and damage to property belonging to others caused by or arising
out of the use of the Vehicle (“Damage”). 25.2 Subject to clause 27 of this Agreement, the Hirer is responsible for, and liable to pay:
25.2.1 the amount of any applicable bond that is payable by Travellers Autobarn in respect of any Damage that is incurred while the Vehicle is in the Hirer’s possession, and for which Travellers Autobarn has not agreed to waive the Hirer’s responsibility.
25.2.2 notwithstanding any waiver of liability under clause 26 of this Agreement, the entire cost of: 184.108.40.206. any Damage that falls within any of the exclusions in clause 27.1 of this Agreement; or 220.127.116.11. any Damage that is incurred while the Vehicle is in the Hirer’s possession if the Hirer breaches
any term of this Agreement and the breach is the cause of, or contributes to, the Damage. 25.2.3 subject to clause 27.3 of this Agreement, administration costs and the cost of demurrage for any period
in which the Vehicle is unavailable due to repairs. 25.3 A VALID VISA OR MASTERCARD CREDIT CARD IS REQUIRED FOR THE SECURITY BOND. If you do not
have a valid Visa Card or Mastercard please contact us so that we can email you a credit card authorisation form
which allows you to use the credit card of a family member/guarantor. 25.4 A security bond is required upon pick-up of the Vehicle. The amount of the security bond is determined by the
applicable liability option you have chosen. Payment of the bond is only accepted by a signed credit card pre- authorisation (sufficient funds must be available). The amount of the bond will not be debited from your account at this time.
25.5 If there is damage to the Vehicle on its return, the bond will be used to cover the cost of such damage up to the amount of the Hirer’s liability. If the damage is a consequence of a breach of any term of this Agreement and the bond is insufficient to cover the damage, then any extra cost will be charged.
25.6 Reminder: It is one bond per accident/damage and not per rental, therefore once you report the accident to Travellers Autobarn, another bond will need to be pre authorised, otherwise you cannot continue with the rental.
25.7 Accidents and any other damage must be reported to the 0800 348 348 Customer Assistance Line within 24 hours of the occurrence or all liability limitations and coverages are void.
26 Security Bond / Liability Options
