Your favorites allow you to save ads you might want to book. You can save ads by clicking the ‘heart’ in the upper right corner of the picture, in the overview, or by clicking the button ‘Save in favorites’ when you’ve opened an ad. To delete an ad from your favorites, simply do the same.
Your favorites can be accessed by clicking your name in the top right, then select favorites. Here you will find an overview of all your favorites.
You can find out whether a camper is available by inserting your travel dates. The ads appearing in the search results are all available during the period selected.
Besides, you can check availability by clicking ‘View Calendar’ in any ad. The available dates will be green.
Advertisers have the possibility to state their pet-policy in the house rules. In case this is not clearly defined, please contact the advertiser.
The house rules state what is and isn’t allowed in the camper. These regulations describe everything of importance for the travellers. This could be a smoking or pet prohibition.
The house rules are listed at every page of an ad, allowing travellers to read them before reserving. After reservation is accepted, the house rules will be send along to the guest, and can be found in the travel schedule.

To contact the advertiser please browse to a camper belonging to the advertiser you would like to contact. At the bottom of the page you will find the button ‘Send a Message’ (in order to do this you need to be logged in).

Payment methodsCan I pay via creditcard?
Goboony accepts the most commonly used credit cards, like Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Payments are guaranteed to be secure. Goboony uses a recognized Payment Service Provider to ensure this. You can enter your credit card information safely via their secured SLL procedure after which they (together with your credit card company) will settle payment. Goboony will not store your credit card information.
Your credit card will be charged with the rental amount owed, shown in the payment request. This amount can include the security bond when applicable.
In case you have extra costs after a trip (like extra kilometers driven, fines, tolls, and deductibles) we will send a seperate payment request. In case you payed a bond these costs will be deducted and you will receive a refund on your credit card for the remaining part.
Depending on your bank, the refund will show up anywhere between 5-15 business days later. We will send you an e-mail once we have refunded you.
Goboony accepts payments via iDEAL, Mister Cash and all major credit cards: Visa, Mastercard and Amercian Express.
Prices & FeesWhat is the required payment amount for reservation?
Placing a reservation is free. When you place a reservation the exact rent-amount is listed. This is the amount you will eventually pay if you rent the camper.
The Goboony payment system has been designed to transfer money from travellers to advertisers safely and easily. It works like this:
As soon as the advertiser accepts the booking request, a payment request will be sent to the traveller. The traveller is given up to 72 hours to pay. Payments are made via credit card at the moment. We will be introducing a debit card payment soon.
The booking is confirmed as soon as the traveller pays. Just as Travellers, advertisers are allowed to cancel an accepted reservation within the 72 hours. Therefore it is wise to pay as soon as possible after the advertiser has accepted your request. This way you claim your camper.
The reservation will expire if payment is not completed within 72 hours. In case you decide to cancel your reservation, please do so via the website. This way, the advertiser can rent the camper to someone else as the dates you requested will be made available again.
Goboony releases payment to advertisers 24 hours after the trip has started.
It is required to use the Goboony payment system to book your camper. By paying, the Traveller will enter into the rental agreement with the advertiser. Our terms and conditions and cancelation terms are affective as soon as the traveller has completed the first payment. The payment system has been designed to protect both Traveller and advertiser. It is neither allowed nor safe to pay outside the Goboony payment system. We cannot provide the safety benefits and security of our site when reservations are paid for, outside of Goboony.
No. When the advertiser declines your booking request, or if you don’t receive confirmation, you will not be charged.
To view your planned trip, navigate to the menu, click: ‘My Trips’. Click ‘details’ to get access to a detailed overview of your booking. You will find useful information like the start and stop-date of your trip, the rental amount and information about the advertiser.
We charge fees to our travellers. We charge fees to cover the website management and services. Fees are calculated based on the rental amount, bonds excluded. The fees are usually around 15% of the total amount.
As soon as the advertiser accepts your reservation, you will receive an email with a payment request. If the camper is booked more than 3 months in advance, you can transfer only 25% of the rental fee to confirm the booking! You will be asked to transfer the next 25% of the rental fee 3 months prior to the rental period. The final 50% of the rental fee can be transfered up to 3 weeks prior to the rental period.
If the camper is booked 3 months or less before the rental period, you will be asked to transfer 50% of the rental fee to confirm the booking. After the booking is accepted you have 3 days to complete this transfer. The final 50% of the rental fee can be transfered up to 3 weeks prior to the rental period.
If the advertiser requires a deposit, you will be asked to transfer this 3 weeks prior to the rental period. The deposit will be transfered back to you a week after you return the camper, unless the advertiser makes a claim to it.
If the camper is booked within three weeks before the rental period, you will be asked to transfer the complete rental fee and deposit (if the advertiser requires a deposit) to confirm the booking."
The deposit is always held by Goboony in order to look after the interests of both parties. You should always get in contact if someone asks you to pay a deposit directly to them.
After you return the motorhome, we ask for the motorhome owner to release your deposit, or inform us of any necessary deductions. We ask all owners to respond in one way or another, however if they do not do so within 48 hours we begin the process of returning it to you.
If there is any reason why some of the deposit needs to be deducted, we will contact you to let you know, and follow up with an invoice of the costs/ repairs. When you are notified, we appreciate a prompt response to help us process the deposit. We allow 48 hours for you to respond (in case you dispute the deductions), before we take the next step. Following this we will proceed to process the deposit and send the money to the relevant parties.
When the deposit is ready to be returned, we release it from our account. It takes between 5-15 days to be fully processed depending on your bank or credit card provider. If you do not receive the money within this timeframe please get in touch.
