Please read these Terms of Service carefully as they contain important information that affects your rights, remedies, and obligations. They include an agreement to arbitrate (unless you opt out). There terms also include a prohibition of class and representative actions and non-individualized relief for all matters in either court or arbitration, various limitations and Exclusions, a clause that governs the jurisdiction, venue, and governing law of disputes, except where prohibited, and obligations to comply with applicable laws and regulations.
GoCamp AL, LLC (“GoCamp,” “we,” or “us”) provides an online platform that connects “Owners” of camper vans, campers, motor homes, and other recreational vehicles (“Vehicles”) listed on our website (www.GoCamp.com (the “Site”)) with “Renters” seeking to book those Vehicles. The Site, mobile applications, and associated services are collectively referred to as “the Services”. Owners may use the Services to publish a listing (“Listing”) with information about their Vehicle and optional additional services or products (“Add-Ons”) offered, and Renters may use the Services to book a Vehicle (a “Booking”).
Owners submit information to GoCamp about their Vehicles. GoCamp creates Listings on behalf of Owners, and facilitates all Booking inquiries on behalf of Owners. Renters may learn about and book Vehicles using our Services. Once a connection has been facilitated by GoCamp, the rental takes place directly between the Owner and Renter.
GoCamp does not own, rent, re-rent, or otherwise control the Vehicles listed on the Site. GoCamp simply connects Owners and Renters. Accordingly, you understand and agree that GoCamp is not a party to any agreements entered into between Owners and Renters, nor is GoCamp an insurer. GoCamp has no control over the conduct of Owners, Renters, or third-party service providers and disclaims all liability for claims or damages arising from or related to Owner, Renter, or third-party service providers’ conduct.
GoCamp reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify the Services or to modify these Terms at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms, we will post the modification on the Site or otherwise provide you with notice of the modification. By accessing the Site or using the Services after we have posted a modification on the Site or have provided you with other notice of a modification, you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to stop accessing the Site and using the Services.
If the modified terms are not acceptable to you, your sole recourse is to stop using and accessing the Services and close your GoCamp Account within 30 days. If you choose to close your GoCamp Account, the previous effective version of these Terms will apply to you, unless you use the Services during the intervening 30 day period, in which case the new version of these Terms will apply to you.
The Services are intended solely for Renters and Owners who are at least age 25. Any use of the Services by anyone that does not meet these age requirements is expressly prohibited.
To access certain features of the Services, you must sign up for an account with us (a “GoCamp Account” or “Account”). You can create a GoCamp Account by providing us your first and last name, email address, and creating a password or connecting through an account with a third-party site or service (including, Facebook and Google). When you book a Vehicle as a Renter, you provide us with certain additional information about yourself. Similarly, when you list a vehicle as an Owner, you provide us with certain additional information about yourself and your Vehicle(s) (if applicable). You must provide accurate, current, and complete information during the registration, Booking, and/or Listing process. You must keep your GoCamp Account up to date at all times. Based on information you provide, GoCamp may impose additional requirements for you to book a trip (e.g., providing a deposit, adding a second form of payment, buying a certain level of protection plan, or other requirements).
Where permitted, GoCamp has the right, but not the obligation, to undertake screenings, checks, and engage in processes designed to (1) help verify the identities or check the backgrounds of users, including driving history and driver’s license validity; (2) help verify insurability; and (3) verify Vehicle details. However, GoCamp does not endorse any vehicle, user, or a user’s background, or commit to undertake any specific screening process.
By using the Services, you authorize us, directly or through third parties, to:
GoCamp may permit or refuse your request to book or list a Vehicle in our sole and absolute discretion. GoCamp may, but does not commit to, undertake efforts to ensure the safety of Vehicles shared through the Services. We do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse the safety, roadworthiness, or legal status of any Vehicles beyond our policies that require Owners to ensure their Vehicles are in safe and operable condition; legally registered to be driven on public roads; have a clean title (e.g., non-washed/non-written off); not subject to any applicable safety recalls; and otherwise satisfy our eligibility requirements. Although these Terms require users to provide accurate information, GoCamp does not attempt to confirm, and does not confirm, any user’s purported identity or other information provided by the user.
Additional Requirements for Renters and Permitted Drivers: To make a Booking via the Services or to qualify as an additional permitted driver (“Permitted Driver”), you must demonstrate to GoCamp’s satisfaction that you:
If you fail the motor vehicle records verification, you will receive a full refund from GoCamp.
Each Vehicle listed must meet the requirements described in these Terms and in the Owner policies, which GoCamp may update from time to time with or without notice. Owners may only use the Services in connection with Vehicles that the Owner owns or otherwise is entitled to List and share or rent to others for compensation. By listing a Vehicle via the Services, Owner: (1) represents that the information provided about that Vehicle is truthful and accurate, including, the value, location, age, size, features, availability, pricing, and optional add-ons (“Add-Ons”) offered; and (2) understands that Renters will rely on the information in an Owner’s Listing when Booking and using a Vehicle via the Site and Services.
Owners are responsible for all Listings they post and all related content. Accordingly, each Owner represents and warrants that any Listing, and any Booking or use by a Renter, of a Vehicle: (1) is complete and accurate, including with respect to the characteristics of the Vehicle; (2) will not breach any agreements Owner has entered into with any third parties; and (3) will (a) comply with all applicable laws, tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Vehicle Listed, including insurance requirements for Vehicle owners, Department of Motor Vehicle regulations, zoning laws, and laws governing the rental, sharing, and/or equipment of Vehicles and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties.
Owner understands that Owner’s Listings may be made publicly available on the Site. By creating a Listing, Owner grants GoCamp a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use, display, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, store, and prepare derivative works of Owner’s Listing content in connection with the Services and to promote GoCamp, Owner’s Listing, or the Services in general, in any formats and through any channels, including across any GoCamp or third-party website or advertising medium. GoCamp claim no ownership rights in your content.
When you (as Renter) request a Booking of a Listing, you are agreeing to pay all fees related to your Booking and any other charges for services and items identified during checkout (collectively “Fees”) plus applicable taxes and other government charges. When you receive the Booking confirmation, a contract is formed (a “Booking”) directly between you (as Renter) and the Owner, and GoCamp is not a party to the Booking. In addition to these Terms, you (as Renter) agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules, standards, policies, requirements, and restrictions identified in the Listing or during checkout that apply to the Booking. It is the Renter’s responsibility to read and understand these terms, conditions, rules, standards, policies, requirements, and restrictions before requesting a booking of a Listing.
The Owners, not GoCamp, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed Bookings and making available any Vehicles reserved through the Services. If you, as a Renter, choose to enter into a transaction with an Owner for the Booking, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into a vehicle rental agreement (“Rental Agreement”) with the Owner, and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules, and restrictions in the associated Listing. You agree that you, not GoCamp, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that GoCamp is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of our obligations to process payment of Fees to the applicable Owner, GoCamp disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You also agree that, although we are not a party to the Rental Agreement between you and the Owner, GoCamp acts as the Owner’s payment agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Owner.
If, as a Renter, you wish to cancel a confirmed Booking made via the Services, GoCamp’s Renter Policies regarding cancellations and refunds will apply. If an Owner cancels a confirmed Booking made via the Services, GoCamp will refund all payments received for the Booking to the applicable Renter and will attempt to find a comparable replacement rental.
GoCamp is not responsible for the loss of vacation, personal or business time, or any incidental expenses (to include hotel, airline or other transportation, or food expenses) incurred by a Renter as a result of a Vehicle breakdown or any problem(s) with the Vehicle, or other reason that a Vehicle becomes unavailable.
Fees and Billing Policies. You agree to the fees charges, terms of sale, and sale, and payment and billing policies applicable to your use of the Services as described in these Terms, Renter Policies, Owner Policies, a Rental Agreement or GoCamp may add new services for additional fees and charges, or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time. All fees and charges for your use of the Service are non-refundable, except as may be expressly stated elsewhere in this Agreement or at the time of Listing or Booking a Vehicle.
For Renters: If you are a Renter, the total price you will be charged to your payment card on file for your use of a Vehicle booked via the Service includes: (1) the initial Booking price; (2) the fee for GoCamp’s Services, including the Protection Plan; (3) the cost of any trip extensions; (4) any additional fees applicable to your trip, such as extra mileage fees, refueling fees, extra cleaning fees, tolls and violations, and other fees described on the applicable Listing and Booking confirmation; and (5) any applicable taxes or surcharges. A percentage of the initial Booking price and trip extensions is paid to Owners, which GoCamp collects on behalf of Owners as limited agent of Owners, as further specified in these Terms and the Owner Policies. The remaining percentage of the initial Booking price and trip extensions is paid directly to GoCamp by the Renter for facilitating trips and providing the Services.
For Owners: If you are an Owner, you hereby appoint GoCamp as your payment collection agent solely for the limited purpose of accepting funds from a Renter on your behalf in connection with a Booking. Payment from GoCamp will be considered the same as payment made directly to you by the Renter, and you will fulfill the Booking with the Renter in accordance with your agreement to do so as if you received the payment directly from the Renter. Upon the Renter’s payment of the funds to GoCamp, the Renter’s payment obligation to you for the agreed-upon amount is terminated, and GoCamp is instead responsible for remitting the funds to you in the manner described in this Agreement. You have recourse against only GoCamp if we fail to remit funds received from a Renter pursuant to the Renter’s obligations to you.
If you are an Owner, you understand and agree that GoCamp will adjudicate the Booking fee on your behalf, which means processing the Renter’s credit card, retaining a commission as set forth in the Owner Policies and remitting such funds to you as provided in this section. GoCamp will remit payments due to you for a Booking within 2 business days after you submit the post-trip details. However, if GoCamp has not received post-trip details from an Owner within 7 days following the completion of a Booking, Go Camp will remit the payment at that time. GoCamp reserves the right to withhold payment or charge back to your Account any amounts otherwise due to us under this Agreement, or any amounts due as a result of a breach of this Agreement by you, pending GoCamp’s reasonable investigation of that breach.
GoCamp will remit all payments to you by ACH payment to the bank account designated in your GoCamp Account information. To ensure proper payment, you are solely responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information associated with your Account, which includes, applicable tax information. If we believe that we are obligated to obtain tax information and you do not provide this information to us after we have requested it, we may withhold your payments until you provide this information or otherwise satisfy us that you are not a person or entity from whom we are required to obtain tax information. Any bank fees related to payment information error or omission may be deducted from the newly issued payment. If you dispute any payment made under this Agreement, you must notify GoCamp in writing within thirty (30) days of any such payment; failure to so notify GoCamp will result in the waiver by you of any claim relating to any such disputed payment. Payment will be calculated solely based on records maintained by GoCamp.
Collections. In addition to the amount due, delinquent Accounts and/or chargebacks will be charged with fees and/or charges that are incidental to the collection of delinquent Accounts and/or chargebacks including, collection fees and/or convenience fees and/or other third parties charges. If we need to contact you to service your account or to collect amounts you owe, you authorize us and our subcontractors, including debt collection agencies, to contact you at any phone number or email address you provide, from which you contact us, or at which we believe we can reach you. You consent to be contacted in any way, such as calling, texting, emailing, sending mobile application push notifications, or using any other method of communication permitted by law and to contact you on a mobile, wireless, or similar device, even if you are charged for it. You consent to be contacted using an automated dialer or prerecorded messages. You certify that any email address you provide is a personal email address and not a work email address. If you change your email address, phone number, or home address, it is your obligation to update us.
Owners may choose to include a security deposit requirement in their Listings as further described in the Owner Policies. GoCamp will obtain pre-authorization of the Renter’s credit card according to GoCamp’s terms. GoCamp does not administer or accept claims by Owners related to security deposits and disclaims any and all liability in this regard.
If the Owner requires a security deposit, the Renter must pay the applicable amount at least four days before pick up of the Vehicle, and it will be refunded when all charges and fees have been paid under the terms of the applicable Rental Agreement and these Terms.
You are solely responsible for determining your applicable tax collection, remittance, and reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors, including any applicable taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable taxes in your listing(s). GoCamp does not offer tax-related advice. GoCamp may facilitate the collection and remittance of certain taxes from or on behalf of Renters or Owner, based on existing and future tax regulations, including marketplace facilitator or vehicle rental and sharing regulations. The amount of taxes, if any, collected and remitted by GoCamp will be visible, and separately stated, to both Renters and Owners on their respective Booking related documents and invoices. If GoCamp facilitates the collection and remittance of taxes, Owners are not permitted to collect the same taxes on the Services in relation to their Listing in that jurisdiction. Owners may only collect taxes that are legally required in the relevant jurisdiction, and no other taxes, optional tax-like fees, or purported taxes.
GoCamp’s Protection Plan provides insurance coverage for GoCamp, the Renter and the Owner during the sharing period. GoCamp is not an insurer and does not sell insurance. To be eligible for the benefits of a Protection Plan, Renter and Owner must comply with these Terms. GoCamp maintains an insurance policy that is written by an insurance company and issued to GoCamp that provides the following coverage for the Vehicle, Renter and Owner during the sharing period:
The protection under GoCamp’s Protection Policy is a contractual obligation of GoCamp provided solely to the Renter and Owner under the Terms and does not confer third party beneficiary status on any other person. GoCamp shall not be liable for any liability arising from the actions or omissions of any Renter or Owner unless covered by the Protection Plan during the sharing period. The “sharing period” is defined as the period between the start time and the stop time for the rental of the Vehicle as reflected in the Booking Details. The Renter and Owner shall not modify the sharing period unless they provide GoCamp notice of the modification and GoCamp confirms the change in an amendment to the Booking Details.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, GoCamp or its insurer may defend and indemnify Renter and Owner under the Protection Plan (subject to any exclusions or limitations in the insurance policy contained within the Protection Plan) for your liability for damages for bodily injury and property damage to third parties and underinsured motorist or personal injury protection losses in an amount not exceeding the greater of either (i) Go Camp’s available insurance coverage or (ii) the minimum insurance coverage requirements in the applicable jurisdiction.
Renters and Owners agree to cooperate and coordinate with GoCamp and each other generally and to take any actions GoCamp reasonably requests in connection with (i) the pickup, use and return of a Vehicle, and (ii) any disputes, actions proceedings, suits, and investigations related to a Vehicle or a Renter’s use of the Vehicle, including, execution and delivery of any documents GoCamp reasonably requests, giving testimony under oath, and taking any other actions GoCamp reasonably requests related to a Vehicle or a rental transaction.
You agree that you will always use your GoCamp Account and the Services in compliance with these Terms, applicable law, and any other policies and standards provided to you by GoCamp.
You are solely responsible for all of the activity that occurs through your GoCamp Account. Keep your GoCamp Account information, including your password, secure. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your GoCamp Account, whether or not you have authorized those activities or actions. You must immediately notify GoCamp of any actual or suspected unauthorized use of your GoCamp Account. We are not responsible for your failure to comply with this clause nor are we responsible for any delay in shutting down or protecting your GoCamp Account if you have not reported unauthorized access to us.
In connection with your use of or access to the Services, you agree that you will not (nor will you advocate, encourage, request, or assist any third party to):
Renter Commitments. As a Renter, you commit that you will be a legally licensed driver and provide proof to the Owner or via the Services of a current, valid driver’s license. You will treat the Vehicle and any applicable Add-Ons well and will take all reasonable measures to return the Vehicle and any applicable Add-Ons on time and in essentially the same condition as received. You will not allow anyone other than a person listed in the Booking Details as an “Additional Permitted Driver” to drive the Vehicle you booked.
Who May Drive and Proper Operation of Vehicles. Only the Renter who completes the Booking (the “Primary Driver”) and qualifies as a “Permitted Driver,” and other Permitted Drivers who are designated and identified as additional drivers at the time of Booking and verified by GoCamp (each an “Additional Permitted Drivers”) may drive and operate Vehicles. Permitted Drivers may only drive and operate a Vehicle with the express prior permission from Renter, and Renter shall be fully responsible for any and all damages, incidents, tolls, tickets, and other acts and omissions involving the Permitted Drivers while operating or driving a Vehicle, or caused by or involving the Permitted Drivers. Renters represent to GoCamp and Owners that Renter and other Permitted Drivers are capable and validly licensed drivers, and will remain capable and validly licensed drivers during the Rental Period. Renters further acknowledge and agree that no person will be allowed to drive a Vehicle if they: (1) are under the age of 25; and/or (2) are not a holder of a valid driver’s license (in his or her actual possession); and/or (3) have not been approved through GoCamp’s verification process.
Owners understand that they alone make the ultimate decision on whether a Renter or Additional Permitted Driver or anyone else requesting possession of the Vehicle pursuant to a Booking is trustworthy and whether to transfer possession of the Vehicle at the pick-up time.This includes the Owner’s responsibility to confirm that the Renter and Additional Permitted Driver is properly licensed for the class of vehicle, vehicle or towing length, or towing weight, and meets any other restrictions or qualifications that may be required (such as, CDL or other special licensure requirements).The Renter and Owner each understands that providing possession to anyone other than an Additional Permitted Driver may void or limit protection and coverages for damage and other liabilities.
By entering into a confirmed booking, Renter expressly authorizes GoCamp to process a charge to the credit card(s) listed on file for all rental and claim-related charges due under these Terms, the Renter Policies, the Booking Details, and the applicable Rental Agreement. All rental fees, security deposits, and other charges (except variable fees and charges that are incurred during or after the rental, such as excess mileage fees, refueling fees, late fees, excess cleaning fees, tolls/violations, damage charges, etc.) must be paid before Vehicle pickup. Failure to pay all rental fees and other charges, including security deposit, may result in the cancellation of the Vehicle and forfeiture of Vehicle fees previously paid.
You understand that third parties own the Vehicles and Add-Ons offered through the Services. Each Owner is responsible for complying with all legal requirements (including ensuring the Vehicle is registered and insured) and maintaining their vehicle(s) in safe and roadworthy condition. Please complete a visual inspection before you begin your use of the Vehicle. If you find damage in your initial inspection, you should upload photos of the pre-existing damage at the start of the “Rental Period” to ensure you are not held responsible for pre-existing damage. (A “Rental Period” is defined as the period between the start time and the stop time for the rental of the Vehicle as reflected in the Booking Details. The Renter and Owner shall not modify the sharing period unless they provide GoCamp notice of the modification and GoCamp confirms the change in an amendment to the Booking Details.) If you find damage on your initial inspection and fail to report it, GoCamp, third-party administrators, or insurance partners, may assume that the damage occurred during your Rental Period. If, after your initial inspection, you believe that the Vehicle is not safe to drive, please do not use the Vehicle; instead, please contact GoCamp Customer Support immediately at 503-327-8512.
You acknowledge that GoCamp is not responsible and will not be liable for the safety, roadworthiness, or legal status (e.g., whether the Vehicle is legally registered or the subject of a stolen vehicle report) of any Vehicles Booked via the Services beyond our policies that require Owners to ensure their vehicles are in safe and operable condition, legally registered to be driven on public roads, not subject to a missing or stolen vehicle report, have a clean title (e.g., non-washed/non-written off), not subject to any applicable safety recalls, and otherwise satisfy our eligibility requirements.
Safety. Renters acknowledge that camper vans, motor homes, and other recreational vehicles can be very large and handle differently from passenger cars. Vehicles booked via the Services require more skill and expertise to operate safely than a passenger car. For example, the Vehicles may require more clearance above, in front of, behind, and beside them to safely operate, and the use of mirrors and direct visual verification are always required to maintain knowledge of the location of adjacent vehicles and obstacles on the roadway. Spotters are recommended to assist the driver in backing Vehicles. Owners acknowledge that it is their responsibility to inform Renters of the limitations of their Vehicle(s), including clearance heights and widths and other operating instructions. Renters also acknowledge that Owner has no control over the number of passengers a Renter may allow into the Vehicle or the conduct of those occupants while the Vehicle is being operated. Therefore, Renter acknowledges they are solely responsible for the passengers on board the Vehicle as well as the conduct of those passengers. Renters also acknowledge they will confirm that both driver and passengers are properly using seat belts (or child safety passenger restraint systems if applicable) while a Vehicle is in motion.
Renters agree to only operate a Vehicle Booked via the Services on public roadways with sufficient width and height clearance to allow the Vehicle to be operated safely and without damage. Under no circumstances may a Vehicle Booked via the Services be operated and used for off-road purposes. If a Vehicle is operated on a private road, Roadside Assistance may be unavailable or voided.
Prohibited Uses. Renters and Additional Permitted Drivers shall not drive in a careless, negligent, reckless or unlawful manner. Certain uses of a Vehicle and other actions Renters or Additional Permitted Drivers may take, or fail to take, are prohibited and will violate these Terms.
Each of the following is a prohibited use (“Prohibited Use”):
A PROHIBITED USE IS A VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS AND MAY:
Regardless of fault, Renter is responsible for any loss or damage to the Vehicle (including physical, exterior, and interior damage and missing equipment) that occurs during a Rental Period due to any cause, including collision, rollover, theft, vandalism, seizure, fire, flood, wind, hail or other acts of nature or God; and (2) is required to pay any damage or loss not covered by the Protection Plan, including without limitation, any applicable deductible. Renter’s responsibility for damage includes: (a) all physical damage to the Vehicle measured as follows: (i) if determined that the Vehicle is a total loss, the actual cash value of the Vehicle; (ii) if determined that the Vehicle is repairable: (A) the difference between the value of the Vehicle immediately before the damage and the value immediately after the damage; or (B) the reasonable estimated retail value or actual cost of repair plus diminished value (which, subject to state law and policy terms and conditions, is measured by calculating the actual cash value of the Vehicle just prior to damage less the value of the Vehicle after repair); (b) loss of use and/or lost profits; (c) a reasonable administrative fee; (d) towing, storage, and impound charges and other reasonable incidental and consequential damages. Renters and Owners should complete a walk-through of the Vehicle, noting any and all defects or damage prior to Renter’s pick-up and drop-off.
Any motor vehicle liability policy issued to Renter or Owner does not provide a defense or indemnification for any claims asserted by GoCamp.
You must immediately (and in any case, within 48 hours) report any damage to the Vehicle you are using to the Owner and to GoCamp via the Services. If there has been a collision or damage as a result of suspected criminal conduct, you must also make a report to the police. You will need to use all reasonable efforts to secure evidence from any available witnesses and to provide GoCamp or third-party claims administrators with a written description of the incident and any other information requested, including identity and insurance information of any parties involved in the incident. You are also required to cooperate in any loss investigation conducted by GoCamp, third-party claims administrators, or insurers. After an incident, you may not continue to use the Vehicle unless you have the explicit written permission from the Owner. Failure to timely report an incident or cooperate in an investigation may reduce or invalidate any protection plan received via the Services.
Protection Packages provided through GoCamp do not include 24-hour roadside assistance. If the Renter does not have 24-hour roadside assistance, Renter is either responsible for all costs associated with not having this service or can purchase a 24-hour roadside assistance package through GoCamp. Renter acknowledges that the 24-hour roadside assistance package provided through GoCamp does not including towing in the case of an accident, irrespective of whether the Renter was at fault. Renter acknowledges that the 24-hour roadside assistance package provided through GoCamp allows for necessary towing of the Vehicle due to mechanical issues. Roadside assistance services are provided for an additional daily fee by a third party and are subject to the third-party’s terms and conditions, which are provided by the third party to you if you elect to purchase roadside assistance at the time of Booking.
You agree that an Owner shall always have a superior right of possession of their Vehicle over a Renter. In the event that an Owner, in its sole and absolute discretion, determines that their Vehicle is at risk of damage or loss, the Owner is entitled to recover the Vehicle from the Renter regardless of the amount of time remaining in the Rental Period. If the Owner recovers a Vehicle from Renter, in addition to those costs payable pursuant to other parts of this Agreement and the applicable Rental Agreement, the Renter shall pay all costs associated with such recovery including employee wages, travel costs, fuel and repairs. The Renter will be wholly responsible for these charges, and the Owner will hold GoCamp harmless.
Tolls, Fines, Expenses, Costs and Administrative Fees.A Renter must report to the Owner and pay for all tolls and tickets (including for parking and moving or stationary traffic violations) incurred during the Rental Period. The Renter must pay or reimburse GoCamp and the Owner for all fines, penalties, interest, and court costs for parking, traffic, toll and other violations, including storage liens and charges incurred during the Rental Period plus a reasonable administrative fee. GoCamp or an Owner may, in their sole discretion, pay all tickets, citations, fines, penalties and interest on a Renter’s behalf directly to the appropriate authority, and the Renter will pay GoCamp or Owner what was paid to the appropriate authority or their designated agents plus a reasonable administrative fee and any attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred. In addition, you (as a Renter) agree and acknowledge that GoCamp and the Owner may cooperate with all federal, state/provincial, municipal and local officials charged with enforcing these infractions to provide any information necessary as they may request or may otherwise be required. You (as a Renter) authorize GoCamp to release credit/debit card and other information regarding your Booking(s) to any agent GoCamp may authorize to act on its behalf for the purpose of processing and billing Renter for any tickets, citations, fines and penalties incurred by you or assessed against GoCamp, an Owner or a Vehicle during a Rental Period plus a reasonable administrative fee. You authorize GoCamp’s agent to: (1) bill you directly to the credit/debit card used to book the Vehicle; and (2) contact you directly regarding any tickets, citations, fines and penalties incurred by you or assessed against GoCamp, the Owner or to a Vehicle while its was rented to you.
Certain toll roads do not accept cash. To avoid toll violations and associated fines, fees, and taxes (and GoCamp’s or the Owner’s administrative fees), you must pay all Tolls with a personal transponder that is accepted on the road; use only cash lanes and pay cash; plan a route to avoid Tolls; or consult local authorities for other payment methods.
Property in the Vehicle. GoCamp and Owner are not responsible for loss of, theft, or damage to any property in or on a Vehicle, in any service vehicle, such as a transit van or bus, on GoCamp’s or Owner’s premises, or received or handled by them, regardless of who is at fault. Renter will be responsible to GoCamp and Owner for claims by others for loss or damage caused by Renter’s property.
As an Owner, you commit that you will:
Owner is responsible for checking all fluid levels (e.g., oil and coolant), air tire pressure, lug nuts and wheels immediately prior to trip departure and must complete a safety inspection within 90 days prior to each Rental Period. Should a breakdown or tire blowout occur due to lack of maintenance, wear and tear or manufacturer defect, Owner acknowledges their claim may be denied. GoCamp reserves the right to request inspection and maintenance records dated within 90 days of the start of the booking and performed by a certified mechanic. Owner acknowledges that a claim or dispute may be denied if there are missing or insufficient maintenance records.
You will have the ability to set and revise the Vehicle’s pricing as you choose. GoCamp will pay you the amount collected from Renters that book your Vehicle, less the applicable fees payable to GoCamp. A description of fees can be found in the Owner Policies. To the extent you owe GoCamp money for any reason, GoCamp also reserves the right to deduct those amounts from your earnings payment, debit your bank account, charge any of your payment methods on file, and/or send you an invoice.
If you believe that a Renter has caused any damage to your Vehicle, you must report that damage as soon as you become aware of it (no more than 48 hours after the scheduled end of the Rental Period) and provide reasonable cooperation in the investigation of the damage so that it can be eligible for coverage. Based on the investigation, GoCamp or third-party claims administrators will reasonably determine whether the damage occurred during the Rental Period and is eligible for coverage. If it was, you will be reimbursed for the loss as described in the sections below. If GoCamp is not given prompt notice as described in this paragraph, or if you do not provide reasonable cooperation in the investigation by GoCamp or third-party claims administrators, we may not be able to determine the cause. In that case, you agree that we may decline any reimbursement or coverage for such damage.
Your personal motor vehicle liability insurance policy may or may not provide coverage for shared or rented vehicles, such as those Listed on the Services, and you should confirm whether renting or sharing your Vehicle(s) is a violation of your personal motor vehicle insurance policy. The insurance maintained by GoCamp under the Protection Plan only applies to Listed Vehicles during the sharing period. Any motor vehicle liability policy issued to you does not provide a defense or indemnification for any claims asserted by GoCamp.
At the time that the Renter accepts the Vehicle, Renter and Owner, or authorized representative of Owner, will complete and sign the Departure Form for the Vehicle, noting in writing and/or time stamped photos, digitally or electronically, any and all defects or damage to the Vehicle before Renter’s acceptance of same.
The Renter is responsible for any minor damage that might occur during the Rental Period (dings to the windshield, minor dents and scratches, flat tires, etc.). The Renter is also responsible for covering the costs of any major damage due to accidents, collisions, theft, or other non-mechanical issues that might arise. Major damage during the sharing period is typically covered by GoCamp’s insurance policy as provided under the Protection Plan. GoCamp’s comprehensive and collision insurance policy has a $2,500 deductible that is the renter’s responsibility.
Subject to applicable law, the parties agree that any disputes or claims between us relating in any way to, or arising out of, this or previous versions of these Terms, your use of or access to the Services, or any breach, enforcement, or termination of Agreement will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Dispute Resolution provision.
Should a dispute, claim, or controversy arise between us, you and GoCamp agree to notify the other party of the nature of the dispute or claim before initiating arbitration, and the parties will attempt to negotiate an informal resolution to it first. We will contact you at the email address you have provided to us; you can contact us by email at email@example.com. If you have a dispute, please provide your name, phone number, email, mailing address, and briefly describe both the nature of your dispute and the relief you would like from GoCamp. If the parties are unable to resolve the claims described in the notice within 30 days after the notice is sent, then the parties are in agreement to arbitrate. The party desiring to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email of such desire and intent to initiate an arbitration. To initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) as set forth below, pursuant to the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. A Demand for Arbitration form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on AAA’s website (https://www.adr.org/consumer). Any settlement offer made by you or GoCamp shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. For purposes of this agreement to arbitrate, “disputes,” “claims,” and “controversies” have the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced and includes any and all disputes and/or claims that arise out of or in any way relate to your relationship with GoCamp, including: (1) your use of the Services, (2) the Agreement, these Terms and/or this agreement to arbitrate, including the interpretation, validity, enforceability, or scope of this agreement to arbitrate, (3) your use of, or access to the Services, and anything sold, offered, or purchased through the Services (such as booking, listing, or renting or sharing a Vehicle), or (4) the agreement to arbitrate itself. Through this agreement to arbitrate, and subject to the below exceptions, the parties intend to arbitrate all disputes or claims regardless of whether they are based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory and regardless of whether they arose or accrued before the parties entered into this agreement to arbitrate.
This agreement to arbitrate evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and is therefore governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and the applicable procedural rules of AAA, as applicable (see “Arbitration Procedures” below). To the extent state law is applicable to the agreement to arbitrate, the Parties agree that the substantive law of the State of Alabama will apply, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
The only exceptions to this Agreement to Arbitrate are as follows:
The arbitration will be conducted by AAA in accordance with its Consumer Arbitration Rules in effect at the time a claim is made. Where permitted, the Parties agree that all communications, evidence, and rulings in the arbitration will remain confidential, except as reasonably necessary to enforce or implement such rulings or this agreement to arbitrate.
The party initiating the arbitration will be responsible for the initial filing fee, and each party will pay its own arbitration fees consistent with the rules set by AAA.
With the exception of the provisions in the below section “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief,” if an arbitrator or court decides that any part of the agreement to arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of the agreement to arbitrate will still apply. If an arbitrator or court decides that any of the provisions in the section “Prohibition of class and representative actions and non-individualized relief” is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of the Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of the Agreement, these Terms, and dispute resolution section will continue to apply.
IF YOU ARE A NEW GOCAMP USER, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO OPT-OUT OF THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE BY EMAILING US AN OPT-OUT NOTICE TO ARBITRATIONOPTOUT@GOCAMP.COM (“OPT-OUT NOTICE”). THE OPT-OUT NOTICE MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN 30 DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS FOR THE FIRST TIME OR THE COMMENCEMENT OF YOUR FIRST TRIP ON GOCAMP AS A RENTER OR OWNER, WHICHEVER DATE IS EARLIEST.
In order to opt-out, you must email your full name, address (including street address, city, state, and zip/postal code), and email address(es) associated with your GoCamp Account to firstname.lastname@example.org. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the agreement to arbitrate. If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, all other provisions of the Agreement will continue to apply to you, including the below forum selection clause specifying Jefferson County, Alabama.
Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, the Parties agree that if GoCamp makes any amendment to the agreement to arbitrate in the future, that amendment will not apply to any claim that you filed against GoCamp before the effective date of the amendment. The amendment will apply to all other disputes or claims governed by the agreement to arbitrate that have arisen or may arise between the parties. If you do not agree to the amended terms, you may close your account within 30 days after our posting or notification, and you will not be bound by the amended terms. However, you and GoCamp will arbitrate any dispute in accordance with the provisions of the agreement to arbitrate as of the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms). Once you have submitted a valid Opt-Out Notice to GoCamp, you do NOT need to submit another one when these Terms are subsequently updated. Your first Opt-Out Notice will serve as a valid Opt-Out Notice as to future versions of these Terms.
Unless the parties agree otherwise, if the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute, whether (1) as a result of your decision to opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, (2) as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, or (3) if one of the above exceptions to the agreement to arbitrate applies, you agree that any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between the Parties will be resolved exclusively by a state, federal, or small claims court located in Jefferson County, Alabama. The parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Jefferson County, Alabama or a United States District Court for the District of Alabama located in Jefferson County, Alabama. The parties agree that the substantive law of the state of Alabama will apply to any such claim or dispute without regard to conflict of law provisions.
THE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING, WHETHER IN COURT OR ARBITRATION. UNLESS THE PARTIES AGREE OTHERWISE, THE COURT OR ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE COURT OR ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS, SUBJECT TO THE ABOVE EXCEPTION ALLOWING PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF TO BE SOUGHT IN COURT BUT ONLY IF THAT EXCEPTION IS FOUND TO APPLY.
