Any damage or excessive cleaning will be charged at cost. We have installed an economical solar powered electrical system to help reduce costs.
Insurance waiver option. This is a fee of $50 per night (Luxury and Prestige Houseboats) or $20 per night (River Cruiser, River Explorer, Camping Boat) which can help you in the case of an insurable incident. For significant damage/loss, you will be liable for the insurance excess of $3500 (Luxury and Prestige Houseboats) or $1000 (River Cruiser, River Explorer, Camping Boat). The insurance waiver reduces this liability to $350 (Luxury and Prestige Houseboats) or $100 (River Cruiser, River Explorer, Camping Boat). The nightly insurance waiver fee is non-refundable once the hire has commenced. Once a hire has commenced, requesting to take out the insurance waiver is not permitted and the relevant excess applies. If the damage has been a result of illegal or prohibited use such as being over .05 whilst driving or ignoring NSW Maritime laws, then the hirer becomes responsible for the full excess.
