Britz Explorer 4 Berth Motorhome

The Explorer is without a doubt a home away from home and is the ultimate freedom for mum and dad and the kids or two couples setting off out on adventure across Australia.

Also, a popular choice for couples who like a bit of extra space, and keep the rear bed made up while you’re on the road. There is also a seating area near the front of the vehicle for relaxing while rear bed stays made up.

There is a good amount of storage in this vehicle and a second double bed above the cab, which makes this vehicle popular with families and friends travelling together too. Only a few Explorers have the angled rear bed left in the fleet, we cannot guarantee which one you will get.

Perfect for:
  • A couple that would like a rear bed that can be left made up from a second seating area
  • Two couples or family that want to keep both double beds made up permanently and will still have a seating area
  • Suitable for 2 child/booster seats

Liability Reduction and the Terms

Britz rentals require a bond. A credit card can only be used to provide the bond, and the credit card holder must be present on pick up as they are jointly liable. The standard liability and refundable Bond is AU$5,000 for the Britz Hi-Top and Voyager Campervans, and AU$7,500 for all other 2WD campervans and AU$8,000 for the 4WD vehicles. This is charged to the hirer’s credit card when they pick up. This is a fairly standard rate for the entire motorhome hire industry. Britz understands that this may be a lot of money, so they offer liability reduction options to reduce the bond and your liability in the event of an incident. Please see terms and conditions for exclusions.

For vehicle hire 01 April 2018 to 31 March 2020

Liability Reduction 2WD:
Liability/Bond reduced to AU$0 at a charge of $45 per day (travel from 01 April 2020 is AU$46 per day) for 2WD vehicles and includes under body and overhead damage (does not include single vehicle rollover), plus cover for accidental damage to unlimited tyres and windscreen.

We strongly recommend our customers take the Britz Inclusive Package for travel with peace of mind which extends your cover to included single vehicle rollover plus useful extras.

Liability Reduction 4WD:
Liability/Bond reduced to AU$500 at a charge of $49 per day for 4WD.
When the vehicle hired is a 4WD, you will be responsible for the first AU$500 of the cost of damage to third party property or the rented vehicle. This includes single vehicle accident, windscreen and tyre damage, towing and recovery costs, theft, fire, break-in or vandalism with the exception of the exclusions. Customers hiring a 4WD, who have not purchased 4WD Max Cover, will be responsible for up to AU$8,000 for towing on ‘restricted’ roads where permission was provided from Britz – a list of these specific roads is in the terms and conditions. Please also note, for overhead and underbody damage in the 4WD to be covered, you will need to take the 4WD Max cover, see Terms & Conditions for details.

Inclusive Pack:
Liability/Bond reduced to AU$0 at a charge of AU$55 per day (travel from 01 April 2020 is AU$58 per day) for 2WD vehicles and AU$59 per day (travel from 01 April 2020 is AU$64 per day) for 4WD’s.

4WD Max Cover:
For an additional cover of AU$199 (travel from 01 April 2020 is AU$249) we strongly recommend our customers take the Britz Inclusive Pack with 4WD Max Cover for travel with peace of mind.
