Terms and Conditions

  1. General provisions

The subject of this contract is exclusively the rental of a camping vehicle (camper, mobile home, etc.) with standard interior fittings, as well as any additional accessories booked by LionCamper GmbH to the renter. The statutory provisions on the package tour contract, in particular §§ 651 of the BGB, do not apply to the contractual relationship. The renter uses the corresponding rental vehicle independently and arranges his or her own journey during the entire rental period. The lessor, LionCamper GmbH, does not owe any travel services, including all travel services.

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies exclusively to the lease of LionCamper GmbH. However, if legally permissible, the general terms and conditions of LionCamper GmbH apply primarily.

Any terms and conditions of the tenant do not apply to the tenancy between the landlord and the tenant, even if the landlord does not separately object to their application in individual cases.

The contracts are concluded in German and in writing. All agreements between the landlord and the tenant must also be made in writing; verbal subsidiary agreements are ineffective.

The rental vehicle may only be used within the countries of the European Union as well as Great Britain, Norway, Iceland, Croatia, Andorra, Albania, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Switzerland. Excluded from the tenancy and therefore prohibited to the tenant, unless approved by LionCamper GmbH in individual cases, travel to all other non-EU countries is permitted.

As part of the lease, the camping vehicles are only to be used for private purposes (e.g. vacation trips, multi-day trips, trips to events, etc.). Any commercial use (e.g. subletting or re-leasing, use for taxi or shuttle trips, etc.), as well as use for moving apartments or generally as a transport vehicle (e.g. furniture, bicycles, explosive / flammable / toxic / radioactive substances) is prohibited. Violations entitle the landlord to terminate the rental contract without notice and, if necessary, to claim damages. Renting a camping vehicle for the purpose of a creative workplace or as a home office option does not count as commercial use and is therefore permitted.

Any delays (e.g. traffic jams, accidents, etc.) must be communicated to the landlord promptly and immediately.

In the case of a clear question of guilt (e.g. the other party involved in the accident touches the parked LionCamper rental vehicle during the unparking process), a police accident report can be dispensed with, provided that the renter and the other party involved in the accident have filled in the accident log completely and legibly, including the question of guilt signed by both parties. The waiver of a police accident record must be approved by the landlord beforehand after consultation. The renter is also obliged to photograph the accident site as a whole, both vehicles involved in the accident with visible license plates and the individual damage to both vehicles in detail.
