You must be 30 years old to rent. You must be 21 with a valid drivers license to drive. A security / damage deposit is required, (run as a pre-authorization) on a major credit card, and you are responsible for all damage to the vehicle and other rented equipment. All renters, drivers and passengers are required to complete and sign the "Rental Contract & Liability Form" prior to rental. We reserve the right to refuse rental if we feel that a driver and/ or passenger's safety may come into question. You are encouraged to ask questions about the operation of the vehicle and YOU assume all responsibility for proper and safe operation of the rental vehicle and for the safety of yourself, passengers and others. No drugs or alcohol allowed.
WHAT METHODS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
All reservations and security / damage deposits require use of a credit card. We do have a small retail store where you can find gear, helmets, goggles, raingear, shirts, hats and stickers for sale. We do accept cash for these items.
We have a 30 day cancellation policy. If your reservation is cancelled 30 days prior to your rental date, your reservation deposit will be returned less a $50 administration / credit card processing fee that we have incurred, (Fee is per machine per day) , If you decide to cancel your reservation inside of the 30 days, your reservation deposit will be forfeited.
Inclement weather does not justify a refund for your reservation deposit. High country weather changes instantly. It is part of the experience. However, we will be glad to accommodate you by rescheduling your rental for another day that has availability.
Given the current climate and those concerns about Coronavirus, we have decided to offer our clients a way to recoup most of their payment of the reservation if they decide to cancel the reservation at a later date. If you would like, you can pay an additional $50 for this RESERVATION INSURANCE option. If you decide to cancel, we will refund your charges less the $50 RESERVATION INSURANCE PREMIUM and a $50 ADMINISTRATIVE FEE to cover administrative costs and credit card processing fees we have already incurred. Note that this applies to each rental machine reserved. Revised 3/13/2020
SECURITY / DAMAGE DEPOSIT REQUIRED
We require a damage deposit of $2,500. Before you leave with the rental machine this amount will be a pre-authorization on your credit card. Once the machine and all other rented equipment is returned on time, and without damage, the pre-authorization will be released. Please note that this can take up to 14 days.
This security / damage deposit is used to cover loss, damages and expenses associated with the operation of your rental. Charges could include, but are not limited to: repair or replacement due to damage of tires and rims, suspension, shocks, body of vehicle, seats, bumpers, roof, and accessories. The monies secured as a security / damage deposit will also be used to cover labor for repair, loss of rental income, any recovery fees or towing of the vehicle. It is also there to cover damage or loss of tools, fire extinguishers, spare tires, helmets, goggles, Go-Pro camera’s, GPS’s, Tablet mapping devices, and other gear whether it is rented or loaned.
DAMAGE TO THE MACHINE
If there is damage to the machine, we will assess the damage and give you a full description of repairs. Keep in mind that this may take days or weeks to get a complete estimate from a shop. A copy of the damage report will be emailed to your listed address. We will retain the entire amount of the Security / Damage Pre-authorization right away. Then once the total of cost of repairs is determined and it comes to less than the Damage Deposit, we will credit the difference to your card. If the cost of repairs exceeds the amount of this deposit, we reserve the right to turn in a claim with our insurance company. Repairs will be made as soon as the insurance company settles the claim. We repair damage with new parts. Minor repair is performed at our shop and any major damage will be repaired through a local dealer.
If the machine is returned late there is a $25 charge for every 15 minutes you are late. This equates to $100 for every hour you are late. After the 4th hour, we will assume you are stranded somewhere and we will notify the authorities. No pro-rated refunds are given for early returns.
VEHICLE RECOVERY FEES
In the unfortunate case that there is an accident, you get the vehicle stuck, or cannot return it to our place of business on time the renter will be responsible for the cost of vehicle recovery fees to return the vehicle to Loop SXS Adventure's place of business. These fees vary depending on the method of recovery but a good estimate is $175 / hour so that is what we charge.
Instances of mechanical breakdown that are the fault of Loop SXS Adventures Ltd. will be addressed on a case by case basis with safety as a priority.
