Additional charges and fees

Do you hate hidden charges and fees? We do, too. That's why RVezy is transparent about charges and fees upfront. When you rent an RV with RVezy, you'll see a breakdown of charges during the booking process, so you'll know what is — and isn't — included with your rental.

Here are the most common fees you’ll find on your booking:

  • Rental insurance.
  • Roadside assistance.
  • Mileage.
  • Security deposit.
  • Taxes.
  • Service fee.
  • Add-ons.

Want to know more? Jump to the sections below for a detailed explanation of RVezy's charges and fees. Prefer quick napkin math? Add approximately 30% to the nightly rate. Our charges and fees are there to ensure you and your guests feel comfortable, safe, and secure during every part of your journey.

If you're ever unsure of an add-on charge or fee, reach out to the host or contact our customer support team for help understanding any of the items on your booking.

Rental insurance

At RVezy, we include RV rental insurance on every rental. RV rental insurance picks up where private insurance leaves off and protects both the host and the guest during the rental.

Guests choose either a standard or a premium deductible during the booking process. The cost to insure the RV varies, and the price comes from a calculation using numerous factors such as the deductible, the RV's age, location, and value.

Roadside assistance

Roadside assistance coverage isn't mandatory, but it's an added expense every guest should consider. Unfortunately, no one can predict when a roadside event may happen. RVezy's 24/7 roadside assistance coverage is available throughout the U.S. and Canada.

How much does roadside assistance cost? Prices vary depending on what kind of RV you rent.

  • Motorized RVs cost $18 per night.
  • Towable RVs cost $9.50 per night.
We explain how everything works in our help center. Check out RVezy's 24/7 roadside assistance coverage for all of the details.

Mileage fees

Since RVezy hosts can customize their listings, it's up to the individual to decide what's included in the rental. Some hosts include unlimited miles, while others charge their guests by the mile. Depending on the type of RV, hosts may charge a hybrid mileage fee where guests will pay a fee if they drive over the set mileage allowance.

Security deposit

Every RV rental company collects a security deposit to help ensure the renters take care of the RV. When you rent an RV on RVezy, hosts calculate the security deposit amount based on the age and type of RV. After the rental, both parties will complete the closeout process, and guests will receive a refund of their deposit, minus any add-on or damage charges.

Taxes

Guests must pay tax just like they would for a hotel or other accommodation. RVezy charges a tax based on the guest's residence.

Service fees

Why do peer-to-peer RV rental companies like RVezy, charge service fees? Simple.

RVezy adds a service fee to the total cost of each rental. Service fees allow RVezy to provide our guests with our industry-best customer support team. Fees also go toward maintaining our RV rental platform, booking management, payment processing, and covering our verified services so that guests and hosts feel comfortable, safe, and secure throughout the entire rental process.

Add-on charges

What kind of add-ons do you want with your rental? RV hosts customize their offerings and set their own prices. Then, you get to pick what you want to include with your rental. Typical add-ons might include:

  • Outdoor equipment such as camping chairs or a grill.
  • Delivery or set-up.
  • Cleaning.
  • Generator use.
  • Pet deposit or pet fee.
  • Sewer or dumping.
  • Propane.
  • Toll road fees (if applicable).

Campground reservations and miscellaneous

Even though your campground reservations, fuel costs, and miscellaneous expenses for food and entertainment aren't included in your RV rental, you'll want to make sure you allow room for these necessities in your budget. Here is a list of some common RV expenses:

Tips for saving money

The price of RV rentals typically aligns with renter demand and camping seasonality. During peak-camping season, you can expect to pay premium prices for an RV rental.

Want to save some money during peak season? Talk to hosts about weekly or monthly discounts, which could save you between 5% and 20% off the base rate.

If you don't mind camping during the off-season, you may be able to find off-season pricing, seasonal discounts, and custom quotes. Each listing should show pricing specials, but if it doesn't, reach out to the host to find out more information.
