Flex Rates:
Cruise America's Daily Rental Rates are know as 'Flex Rates' . These give you the very best available price for the motorhome you want to rent. If you book early and there are plenty of motorhomes available, you will pay a much lower price. If you book closer to departure date or book for a high demand period then the rate will be higher. This is a similar system to that used by airlines.

No mileage is included in the Flex rates. Choose from the available mileage options above. Once booked and confirmed, should you need to change, the rate will be re-calculated using the most current Flex rate and compared to the existing flex rate. The higher rate will prevail. Changing party size or adding pre-paid items does not consitute a change. Flex rate valid for 35 days and on day 36 a new Flex rate will apply.

Travelers Assistance Support
For concerns that clients may have, whether mechanical breakdowns, service problems, or holiday impairment, the client MUST call the (800) 334-4110 number. A call to the departure rental center is not recommended. Please note that availability of a toll-free number for Travelers Assistance on a 24-hour 7-day a week basis is unique to Cruise America. If the client calls Travelers Assistance they should have the Renter Assistance Guide in hand. The Travelers Assistance representative will refer to specific pages within the guide.

Vehicle Return Time
Beginning at 9:00 AM (09:00 hours) up to 11:00 AM (11:00 hours). With prepaid Early Bird Departure Special, return times beginning at 9:00 AM (09:00 hours) up to 3:00 PM (15:00 hours) unless you are returning on a Saturday. Please note Saturday times may vary, as some locations close earlier.

Driver Requirements:

Ferry Restrictions:
Ferry reservations can be dificult to manage during high season. We recommend your clients make a reservation for at least a 30 foot vehicle on the ferry, irrespective as to the size of the motorhome reserved, to avoid problems due to possible upgrades.

Travel Restrictions:
Coverages are invalid if problems occur in the following areas and all recovery expenses are at the client’s own cost. Violations of these restrictions void damage waivers and the client will be held liable for all vehicle damages including to tires, towing charges and other related expenses as a result of a breakdown associated with operating in these areas. Clients should consult the Renter Assistance Guide and the departure location personnel for complete information on travel restrictions and local circumstances at the time they collect their motorhome.

Alaska & Yukon and Northwest Territories & Newfoundland
Travel on all public and/or numbered roads is permitted. Travel on non-public roads, unpaved back roads, trails and the like – commonly called ‘logging roads’ or on any surface subjecting the vehicle to unreasonable damage or road hazard is prohibited. Clients may receive further information from Cruise America regarding seasonal travel restrictions as well. We reserve the right to restrict travel, dependent on current road conditions.
