(a) at or before the time the Vehicle is delivered to the Traveller under the Rental Agreement, or, if the Vehicle is already in the possession of the Traveller, at the time the Rental Agreement is extended, in which cases the amount of the Service Fee is 15% (inclusive of GST) of the Rental Charges for the Agreed Rental Period or any agreed extended period, as applicable; and
(b) if the Vehicle is not returned on or before the expiry of the Agreed Rental Period or any agreed extended period, at the time of the Vehicle's return or other termination of the Rental Agreement, in which case the amount of the Service Fee for that period is 15% (inclusive of GST) of the Late Rental Charges.
(c) if the Rental Agreement is terminated or cancelled by the Owner due to a willful or grossly negligent default (e.g. mix up of pick-up location or dates, sale of Vehicle, etc.) before the Vehicle is delivered to the Traveller, at the time of termination or cancellation, in which case the amount of the Service Fee is calculated in accordance with clause 10.1(a) up to a maximum of the Cancellation Cap.
10.2 The Owner may, but is on no way obliged to, offer the Traveller discounted Rental Charges based on the lengths of the Rental Period. Any discount agreed to does not affect the Service Fee the Owner is liable to pay to SHAREaCAMPER (15% will be calculated based on the non-discounted Rental Charges).
10.3 If the Owner does not hold the required Licences to rent out motor vehicles in New Zealand:
(a) SHAREaCAMPER will be paid the Service Fee in respect of a Rental Agreement by retaining the amount of the Service Fees from the Rental Charges or other fees collected by SHAREaCAMPER.
(b) Both parties agree that SHAREaCAMPER will be the only party to issue an invoice in relation to the supply. SHAREaCAMPER will issue the Owner with a buyer created tax invoice as approved by Inland Revenue as SHAREaCAMPER takes the booking for the amount of days required and charges any incidentals ordered via the Site and is therefore in a position to determine the value of the supply. Both the Owner and SHAREaCAMPER will retain a copy of the invoice.
10.4 If the Owner does hold the required Licences to rent out motor vehicles in New Zealand:
(a) Each Owner authorises SHAREaCAMPER to collect payment of Service Fees in respect of a Rental Agreement by retaining the amount of the Service Fees from the Rental Charges or other fees collected by SHAREaCAMPER on behalf of the Owner.
11.1 This section 11 with clauses 11.2 to 11.3 is only applicable if the Owner does not hold the required Licences to rent out their motor vehicles in New Zealand.
11.2 The Rental Charges and the Cleaning Fee the Owner receives from SHAREaCAMPER are calculated GST exclusive. In the event that the supply of the Vehicle to SHAREaCAMPER is a taxable supply on which the Owner is required to account for GST:
(a) SHAREaCAMPER agrees to pay an additional amount equal to the amount of the GST the owner needs to account for a particular booking, provided the Owner provides SHAREaCAMPER with a tax invoice in relation to the taxable supply or a Buyer Created Tax Invoice is prepared by SHAREaCAMPER,
(b) The Owner agrees that if the amount of the Rental Charge is adjusted, the Owner provide SHAREaCAMPER (or SHAREaCAMPER provides to the Owner if a Buyer Created Tax Invoice is prepared) with a debit or credit note, as applicable, reflecting the adjustment that has been made.
11.3 The terms 'taxable supply', 'tax invoice', 'credit note', 'debit note', and 'supply' have the meanings set out in the Goods and Services Tax Act 1985.
12. INVESTMENT AND COMMINGLING
12.1 Each Owner agrees that the Rental Charges and the Cleaning Fee held by SHAREaCAMPER under clause 7 and the Security Bond held by SHAREaCAMPER under clause 8:
(a) need not be invested, or, if invested, that the proceeds of such investment may be retained by SHAREaCAMPER; and
(b) may be commingled with other Rental Charges and Security Bond amounts held by SHAREaCAMPER on behalf of other Owners or in respect of other Rental Agreements.
13.1 The Traveller and the Owner may cancel or amend (for example shorten the rental period) a Rental Agreement before delivery of the Vehicle to the Traveller in the circumstances set out in the Booking Details.
13.2 If a Rental Agreement is cancelled or amended by the Traveller before the Vehicle is delivered to the Traveller:

(b) SHAREaCAMPER will refund to the Traveller any Rental Charges it holds, less
(i) any Cancellation Fee calculated in accordance with the table in clause 13.5;
(ii) the booking fee as indicated on the Traveller’s tax invoice (non-refundable); and
(iii) the Credit Card Fee as indicated on the Traveller’s tax invoice (non-refundable).
(c) The Traveller expressly and irrevocably authorises SHAREaCAMPER to charge to the Credit Cards all amounts payable by the Traveller under these Terms. These payments can be recurring and will be advised by SHAREaCAMPER to the Traveller via email notification or tax invoice uploaded in the User profile.
13.3 If a Rental Agreement is cancelled by the Owner before the Vehicle is delivered to the Traveller:
(a) the Owner is liable to pay SHAREaCAMPER
(i) the Standard Cancellation Fee in accordance to clause 13.7;
(ii) the Extra Cancellation Fee in the case of a booking being cancelled by the Owner, due to a willful or grossly negligent default (e.g. mix up of pick-up location or dates, sale of Vehicle, etc.) in accordance with clause 13.7. This fee is in addition to the Standard Cancellation Fee under clause 13.7; and
(iii) the Booking Fee initially charged to the Traveller and as set out in the Traveller’s Tax Invoice in the case of a booking being cancelled by the Owner, due to a willful or grossly negligent default (e.g. mix up of pick-up location or dates, sale of Vehicle, etc.).
The charges will be deducted from the next Owner payout or SHAREaCAMPER can invoice the Owner separately for any outstanding amount.
(b) SHAREaCAMPER will refund to the Traveller the invoiced amount, as shown on the Traveller’s Tax Invoice, less the Credit Card Fee;
(c) SHAREaCAMPER will credit the Traveller the Extra Cancellation Fee in form of a credit that can be used for future bookings with SHAREaCAMPER, given according receipts for a replacement vehicle for the same rental period and place as the cancelled booking with SHAREaCAMPER are handed in by the Traveller to SHAREaCAMPER;
(d) SHAREaCAMPER will credit the Standard Cancellation Fee in the form of a credit that can be used by the Traveller for future bookings with SHAREaCAMPER within the next twelve (12) months of the initial Pick Up date. The Standard Cancellation Fee cannot be paid out in cash to the Traveller; and
(e) the Owner Cancellation Fee is calculated in accordance with the table in clause 13.7.
Extenuating Circumstances for Owner Cancellations
13.4 In the rare instance where extenuating circumstances arise, an Owner may need to cancel a confirmed booking. In such cases SHAREaCAMPER may at its own discretion forgo to apply the Standard and Extra Cancellation Fee. Instances may include, but are not limited to, any of the following that happened shortly prior a planned pick up:
(a) unforeseeable, verified maintenance requirements of the Vehicle;
(b) verified accident damage that cannot be repaired or repaired in time;
(c) late drop off by immediately previous Traveller.
Usage of the Vehicle by a family member for own use after accepting a booking does not qualify as extenuating circumstances.

|Cancellation Fee |
to be paid by the Traveller
|31 to 90||Booking fee plus 25% of the Rental Charges|
