Make sure your vehicle is the right fit for a specific Hipcamp
When going on any trip, we recommend that you be aware of your vehicle's limits and make sure not to drive anywhere that could result in damage to your car. You are solely responsible for damage that occurs to your car while driving.
Check the unit page and read the Host's rules in the checkout process carefully before you make a booking to understand if 4WD or high clearance is required to visit their property, and only proceed if your vehicle can meet any stated requirements. If you aren't sure, you can always ask the Host before making a booking.
What if my car is damaged while driving?
If you're driving to a Hipcamp or on a Hipcamp property and you get a flat tyre, body damage, or any other vehicular damage, we recommend that you work with your personal insurance to reach a resolution. As stated above, you are solely responsible for your vehicle while driving it, and we recommend you know your vehicle's limits. Please also note that Hipcamp's Host liability insurance does not cover anyone operating motor vehicles.
What if my car is damaged while parked?
Please use your own good judgment when deciding where to park your car, as you are solely responsible for your car and all items within it while it is parked.
Be aware of specific hazards that could damage your vehicle and avoid parking in these areas. Please also be aware of the risk of vandalism by a third party, you can ask your Host for their advice on the area you are parking in to better understand this risk.
For all of the above situations, we recommend that you work with your own insurance to reach a resolution.
