Rental Terms and Conditions for VanLife MTL and JeepLife MTL

Valid from December 1, 2020 to December 31, 2021

COVID-19: CLEANING AND DISINFECTION PROTOCOL

Thorough cleaning of our vehicles has always been part of our basic practices. It is important for VanLife MTL to ensure that our vans and equipment are clean at all times.

And although these practices are already well established, we are aware that more than ever we must pay special attention to the cleanliness and sanitation of our rental spaces and products.

Thus, we have put in place additional measures to clean and disinfect everything in accordance with the directives of the health authorities. These measures include cleaning the interiors and exteriors of our vans with a multi-surface disinfectant. We are also focusing even more specifically on all areas that are frequently touched by travelers, including the driving section. Bedding and dishes are also washed in hot water.

We hope that these measures will reassure you and allow you to have a pleasant stay in one of our vans.

  • If you must change your departure time, you must contact and advise VanLife MTL no later than 24 hours before departure.
  • There may be a waiting period upon your departure. The VanLife MTL team will try to respect the established schedule as rigorously as possible, however, in the event of a delay caused by situations beyond our control (e.g., a client who does not show up at the scheduled time), the team will operate on a first-come, first-serve basis. Note: NO departures before 9 AM for logistics reasons.
  • Please note that the time required to sign the documents and provide all rental instructions during a departure will take approximately 30 minutes. Ensure that you have viewed our explanatory video before arriving at VanLife MTL to simplify and accelerate the process.

RENTAL PERIOD

  • The minimum rental period is four days. (The Ski In Ski Out package, offered in winter, is the only exception to this rule)
  • There is no maximum rental period. However, you must contact us for any reservation of more than 120 days.

VEHICLE RETURN

WINTER

  • Our vans are equipped for winter: winter tires, snow brushes, scraper, shovel, steel traction and tow cable.
  • However, although our fleet is equipped with winter tires, we ask that you use your judgment before venturing into parks, smaller roads and other high-risk areas.
  • To avoid damage to the van and its equipment in winter, we ask that you keep the heating on at all times at a minimum temperature of 15°C.
    * Clients who do not respect this instruction could seriously damage the campervan and be charged for repairs.
  • The heater exhaust duct is located near the rear tire (driver’s side). It is important to ensure that it is kept clear of snow at all times to prevent gasoline emissions into the van. Please note: our vans are all equipped with carbon monoxide detectors.
  • We recommend that you clear the snow from the solar panel frequently so that it continues to recharge the batteries.

UPGRADE

  • We reserve the right to upgrade or assign a similar or higher category of vehicle to your reservation. We will not issue a refund if we assign you a similar vehicle.

INSURANCE

  • We offer three insurance packages to suit your needs.  Click here to choose the ideal plan for your reservation.
