Terms & Conditions

The subject of this contract is exclusively the rental of a camping vehicle (camper van, mobile home, etc.) with standard interior fittings, as well as any additional accessories booked by LionCamper GmbH to the renting person. The statutory provisions on the package tour contract, in particular §§ 651 a-m BGB, do not apply to the contractual relationship. The renting person uses the corresponding rental vehicle independently and arranges the trip himself during the entire rental period. The lessor, LionCamper GmbH, does not owe any travel services, not even a set of travel services.

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies exclusively to the rental agreement 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 specifically object to their validity in individual cases.

The contracts are concluded in German and in writing. All agreements between the landlord and the renting person must also be made in writing; verbal ancillary 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 renting person, unless approved by LionCamper GmbH in individual cases, travel to all other non-EU countries is permitted.

As part of the rental agreement, 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-letting, 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 agreement 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, however, does not count as commercial use and is therefore permitted.
