Terms & Conditions – Motorhome and Van Rentals
Rates: All rates are subject to state and local tax rates; a 3% local tax applies. All motorhome rentals require a 4 night minimum rental period. A $100 preparation fee is required for all rentals that are less than 7 nights. RV rental reservations of less than 7 nights cannot be made more than 60 days in advance.
Reservation Deposits: Amazing Accommodations Alaska requires a $500 reservation deposit at the time of booking. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your arrival. (We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover Card, and wire transfers). Upon arrival, the $500 reservation deposit is converted into a damage deposit and held during the rental period. If the motorhome rental is returned without damage and no additional charges are due, the deposit will be returned to your account right away. It will take 3 to 5 business days for the credit card company to process.
Cancellations: Our reservation deposit of $500 is non-refundable. Cancellations resulting from emergencies such as the death of a family member or hospitalization will result in a full refund of the $500 deposit up to 30 days prior to departure and if written proof is provided.
Rental Insurance: All rentals from Amazing Accommodations Alaska are insured by our rental insurance, which is included in the rates.
Collision Damage Waiver: For all international customers, we require a CDW purchase of $20 per day to reduce the deductible from $2500 to $500. All U.S. customers also have the option to purchase the $20 per day CDW if desired.
Fuel: All motor home rentals begin with full tanks of gasoline and propane, and must be returned full as well. If not full upon return, the rental customer will be charged a $100 fee, plus the cost of the gasoline and/or propane needed to fill each tank.

We do offer an optional glass protection for $9 per day covering all glass damage for any window on the RV rental. All glass would be 100% covered and this protection has a cap of $180. Charges for stone chips are $70. If the windshield does have cracks and we need to replace it, this is a $500 charge.
Gravel Roads: We only have minor restrictions on gravel roads.
Allowed Travel: Vans are allowed all the way to Deadhorse. Driving to Hatcher Pass from our Wasilla site and back is possible for all our rentals. Roads like Denali Highway, McCarthy Road, and Top of the World Highway into Canada are also allowed.
Restricted travel: The road from Hatcher Pass to Willow is not allowed for any of our rentals as this road requires 4×4 vehicles. Motorhomes can only travel the “Arctic Circle” on the Dalton Highway.

Any expenses incurred because of bad road condition are the sole responsibility of the renter. There will be no compensation for down time, towing, or mechanical failures.
