How do I communicate with potential Travellers?
When a Traveller views your vehicle when browsing through Goboony they are able to send you a message, giving them the opportunity to ask questions about your vehicle and to introduce themselves and of course, make a booking request. This is the way that bookings are initiated.
Do I need to have hire insurance before I list on Goboony?
Yes, hire insurance is required when your vehicle is used for what is called ‘hire and reward’. Breakdown cover that covers hiring out is also required.
What are my options regarding insurance for hiring out?When new to Goboony, you might be unsure about how much you will be hiring out your motorhome. We understand that this makes you hesitant to dive into a comprehensive self drive hire policy and its initial costs.
Goboony has a daily insurance that you can use to hire out your vehicle. The Goboony Day insurance is only paid for when your vehicle is actually being hired out and the costs are split between you and the hiring party. The insurance also comes with Breakdown cover included.
How can I start using the insurance?
When creating your listing, simply opt into the Goboony-Riverside day insurance. When someone books your vehicle, the policy automatically becomes active for the full duration of the booking. Nothing more, nothing less.
What will it cost?
For the use of this insurance, a fixed £15 per day will be deducted from your earnings as an advertiser. The hiring party then pays a variable rate depending on their driving history.
Is my motorhome eligible for this insurance?
Your motorhome is eligible if it weighs up to 3500kg, is under 20 years old and does not exceed a value of £65,000. The policy only covers right hand drive vehicles. You will also need to have an existing policy for your own personal use of the vehicle as this policy only covers it whilst on hire.
My vehicle is 20 years or older, where can I get insurance?
If you’ve got more of a vintage vehicle it would be worth getting in touch with our friends over at Just Kampers. They have 2 policies that can cover older vehicles and can either work as an annual policy or a pay as you go option.
You could also consider Alan Boswell for an annual policy.
What do I have to check when handing over my vehicle to the Traveller?
The GoForm states that you must check the motorhome for any preexisting damage together with the Traveller before they leave with the motorhome.
Make sure to check both the interior and exterior of the vehicle for a thorough check.
Check if the promised appliances and amenities are present in the vehicle and are in full working order.
I want to include a few rules when renting out my vehicle. Where do I state these rules?
As an advertiser you can specify rules and conditions for renting your vehicle. You can already specify such rules as smoking or pets under booking conditions It is therefore not necessary to also state this in your house rules. Anything else can be put in your house rules section by going to My motorhome then Booking in the left hand column and typing in the text box.
☑️ On Goboony you get to set rules on how your motorhome is hired
Can I really earn money by renting out my vehicle?
Yes, it is possible to both offset the annual costs of your vehicle and even earn money on it long term. How much you earn will naturally depend on how often you rent out the motorhome.
This does not only depend on the number of rentals per year, but also on the type of camper you rent.
