Features
    Two burner cooker
    Dual battery system
    Lockable rear storage
    21 litre fridge/freezer
    Seat-belted seating for 4
    CD/DVD player and ipod connector
    Large double bed (use fully inside or extended out the back with an attachable rear awning)

Sleeping Option 1 - Internal sleeping option
    Ideal for use on colder nights
    A comfortable full size double bed set up in under 10 seconds set up
    A well insulated vehicle - just like a car
    The innovative design means you do not need to rearrange the interior to get to your gear
    Bed is 1.92m long and 1.4m wide fully set up inside
Only Spaceships campervan rentals Australia have two sleeping options allowing you to sleep inside with the back door closed or sleep outside by extending the bed into the rear awning for 30% more space and ventilation. To set up: Simply turn the rear seat around to face the back door, set up the internal bed legs (provided for free) then sit the bed extension and mattress on top. This takes under 10 seconds and is a great option for the winter months.

Sleeping Option 2 - Extend the bed for 30% more space and ventilation
    30% more space and ventilation
    A great option for those hot summer nights
    A comfortable full size double bed in less than 10 seconds set up
    Rear bed extension acts as a great table or seat
    Waterproof rear awning provided
    Bed is 1.92m long and 1.4m wide fully extended out the back
This is a great sleeping option and is unique to Spaceships. It is better suited to the summer months. All you have to do is extend the bed out the back by using the same bed extension as the internal option then fit the rear awning. This takes 30 seconds and provides a fully enclosed waterproof sleeping option providing 30% more space and ventilation. A large insect screened window is included which can be zipped up or left down for increased ventilation.

Portable Two Element Cooker
    Means you can have a pot and pan going at the same time
    Comes with one free gas canister
A customised cooker stand is provided that sets up in seconds. This provides an external platform to cook from. Alternatively you can set your portable cooker up on picnic tables in campgrounds. A complete cooking kit is provided along with utensils and a 20 litre water container.

Special dual battery system
    Charges automatically as you drive
    Powers the stereo, DVD player, Fridge and internal lights
    Means you do not need to pay for a powered campsite each night
All Spaceships are set up with two batteries forming a dual battery system. One battery starts the engine and the second battery powers the accessories. This allows you to operate the fridge/freezer and watch a DVD while the engine is not running - this will run the auxiliary battery down but the Spaceship will always start on the other battery, and then self-charge as you drive.
This means you save money as you do not have to pay for powered sites each night like you would in an ordinary campervan or motorhome to charge your vehicle.

Seat-belted seating for 3-4
    Room for two adults in the front and the back
There is seat-belted seating for four people. The back seat has a tilt adjustment to recline the seat to watch a movie or have a snooze whilst on the road. It is also on a runner in the floor so it can be adjusted depending on the leg-room required.

DVD/CD player, AM/FM radio and iPod cord
    4 speaker surround sound speaker system
    DVD exchange with any other Spaceships
    Swap DVDs at any of our Space Stations
Your Spaceship comes fitted with a quality CD/DVD/MP3 player with an 18cm screen. There is a surround sound system with 4 speakers plus an ipod/Mp3 cord fitted so you can cruise and listen to your favourite music.
The DVD player is very popular - other campers will be very envious when they see you curled up, watching a DVD! You can exchange your DVDs at any of our Space Stations plus with other Space Travellers as well - if you see another Spaceship just go up and say hi and swap DVDs (you never know you might meet some new travelling buddies!)

 Large secure storage area
    Space for two soft backpacks
    Easy access with rear awning up via a new awning design
    Separate internal storage accessible from the side doors
    Space for cooking gear, dry foods and daypacks
The main storage is accessed from the back and can securely store two large soft backpacks. We have improved the rear awning by including a large zip down area so you can access the rear storage compartment with the awning still on. The internal storage area is where the cookers, cutlery and cooking equipment are stored and offers space for dry food storage. Once again you do not have to re arrange the interior for day and night time use.

Quality fridge/freezer
     Enough room for a 6 pack of beers (or a carton of milk/bottle of wine) and some food
A quality fridge/freezer is provided. This unit is highly reliable and will actually keep your food chilled like a normal fridge.

Unique 2 in 1 swivel seat design for internal seating, and sleeping
The middle seat in a Spaceship performs three unique functions:
1. Driving mode: The seat can face forward in the driving position and seat one person with a shoulder belt. This enables a child seat or booster seat to be fitted if required. We cannot cater for babies under the age of one.
2. Sleeping mode: You can swivel the seat to face the back door and extend the bed internally for sleeping with the back door shut (bed legs are included for free, and they only take about 10 seconds to set up).

Automatic transmission (easy to drive)
    Very easy to drive
    Big windscreen for great driving experience
    Great fuel economy
The Alpha Spaceship is like a good car to drive. They are well suited to Australian roads, hills and cities. Features include two cup holders, single slide door, electric windows, mirrors and power steering. In keeping with all Spaceships they are fun, safe and easy to drive.

Please note: The shown motorhomes are only example vehicles of the different groups. Relevant for your booking is the vehicle data - number of seats and beds, layout - shown on the availability screen and on the reservation screen.
***Please note floor plans and interior shots are indicative only***

8.2 Oil and water levels
The hirer/driver is responsible to check and maintain all fluid levels and must immediately rectify and report to Spaceships any defect of which you become aware however slight. Rectification means a fit and proper diagnosis and repair. Continued operation of the vehicle after a defect has occurred may lead to serious consequential damage to the engine for which you the renter will be held responsible and liable for full repair costs.
The risks of continued driving if your car begins to overheat, or if it has a known cooling system problem of any kind can be severe. If your temperature gauge moves in a direction that is a departure from normal, stop immediately, investigate and call Spaceships . Do not wait for it to cool and drive again as you may cause further catastrophic damage to your engine, for which you will be held liable. Driving with an inoperative temperature gauge voids all insurance coverage and may result in the hirer being held liable if overheating occurs.

9.­­­ Vehicle Availability

9.3 Should the hirer decide to take a lesser vehicle than booked they will not be entitled to any refund.
9.4 Where the owner cannot provide a vehicle for a confirmed reservation, the owner’s liability is limited to a refund of the unused portion of the rental fee only.

While we will make reasonable efforts to ensure we are representing only reputable suppliers, we make no warranty about the fitness or suitability of any third party (supplier) product or service and will not accept responsibility for the quality or fitness of any vehicle. We welcome feedback from our customers on their experience with our suppliers. We may, at our discretion, provide you with reasonable assistance in resolving any dispute you may have with a supplier.

Our total liability to you in relation to your use of this website and the information contained on this website will not exceed the dollar amount of the deposit we have received from you in relation to your booking/rental. Refunds will not be made for bookings cancelled due to inclement weather. Again, we strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance. Your use of this website is governed by the laws of New Zealand and the jurisdiction of the New Zealand courts.

Booking information
To make a booking you must complete our booking form which is easy to follow and secured with the latest encryption technology. Once we receive your form, we will, subject to availability, confirm your booking by emailing you a confirmation voucher and invoice. The deposit required to secure your vehicle (as shown on the secure booking page) will only be processed on your credit card when your booking is confirmed. Please note that a 1.95% credit card or debit card surcharge will be added when your payment is processed.

A booking is confirmed when you have been emailed a confirmation voucher and at this stage the deposit is processed on your card and becomes non-refundable and any cancellation fees stated in the supplier's terms apply. Upon receipt of your confirmation, please check your details carefully and notify us immediately if there are any incorrect details, as it may not be possible to make changes at a later date.

If you are booking via phone, please make sure you have read the terms and conditions of the vehicle you wish to rent first. Our reservations consultant will ask you if you have read the terms and agree to them before proceeding. The onus is always on the renter to ensure they make themselves fully aware of the terms displayed on our website.

Information disclosure
In booking on this website you acknowledge that we disclose your information to your selected Supplier in order to provide the requested rental services.

Amendments
Please note that some suppliers treat an amendment as a new booking and apply the rate current at the time the amendment is made to recalculate the entire booking amount (not just the days changed). If the rental period is increased, an additional deposit may be required. If the rental period is shortened which results in a reduction of the rental charges, the deposit amount will remain unchanged, and the difference between the original and revised deposit is forfeited (it cannot be used towards remaining rental charges). To request a change to a confirmed booking, please use the alterations request link on your confirmation. Any alterations are subject to availability and the approval of the supplier. In addition to the alteration policy of the supplier stated in their terms, the following charges will apply:
Motorhome rental alterations (all charges stated in local currency): 25.00
The alteration fee will not be charged if your alteration request is not possible.

Vehicle Capacity and fitness to drive
Under no circumstances are you permitted to carry more passengers than the vehicle you rent is legally registered to carry, and if you do your insurance may be invalidated. The number of seatbelts (and passengers) is indicated next to each vehicle on this website. Luggage capacity where shown is an indication only and we will not be responsible should you be unable to fit your entire luggage into a vehicle. It is your responsibility to choose a journey that is within your capabilities. A vehicle supplier can refuse to rent a vehicle to any person who is in their opinion unfit to drive or does not meet eligibility requirements. In such circumstances we will have no further liability to you.

Refund Policy
We are committed to providing a quality service and aim for complete customer satisfaction. In the event of cancellation, any refunds or penalties are detailed in the terms and conditions of your selected vehicle that you are asked to read and accept at time of booking. In the event you are unsatisfied with our service, please contact us within 48 hours of placing your booking or request and we will work to resolve any issues and determine if compensation is due. In the event you have completed your rental and are unhappy with your vehicle, we are happy to assist you in seeking compensation from the operator of the vehicle.


This website is owned and operated by Motorhome Republic Ltd, a global leader in motorhome rental distribution. Our financial centre and marketing office is based at Level 4 Excelsior House, 6 Commerce St , Auckland, New Zealand. Thank you for booking with us.


Spaceships AU Insurance

1. Bond
1.1 Credit card details must be provided to us by you at the commencement of the Rental Period for the purposes of paying the Bond.
1.2 You authorise us to hold a bond in the amount of $3000 (“Bond”) on your credit card at the commencement of the Rental Period. You authorise us to use the Bond to cover insurance excess costs (and any incidental costs) as a result of any accident during the Rental Period. The bond amount will be deducted from your credit card if you are involved in an accident whilst using the Vehicle. The bond will be released when the Vehicle is returned provided no damage has occurred.  The excess is applicable regardless of who is at fault and must be paid at the time the accident report is completed, not at the completion of the rental. The excess will be refunded to you if we are successful in recovering the costs of the damages from the third party.  You acknowledge that you must pay for anything not covered by insurance or the Bond.

2.  Insurance Options
2.1 For additional non-refundable fees, you may purchase from us All Inclusive Insurance.  This will reduce the Bond payable by you on a per incident basis unless the loss or damage is not fully covered by insurance.  If an accident occurs before the expiry of the Rental Period you must pay additional fees for the remaining days of your hire if you still wish to obtain the benefit of All inclusive insurance for the remainder of the Rental Period. The insurance options, cost per day, Bond & maximum collectable insurance options are set out as follows:
  Cost per day Bond/Liability Maximum Collectable*
Standard liability Included $3000 Not Applicable
Liability Reduction Option 1 $20 $1500 Not Applicable
All inclusive Reduction Option $30 No bond $1200 ($1500 if <25 years)

Single Vehicle Accidents Yes Yes
Windscreen Cover  No Yes

2.2 You acknowledge that cover may be denied All inclusive insurance if:
   (a) there is any water related damage such as vehicle submersion, creek or river crossing, beach driving or driving through low plain flooded areas;
   (b) you breach the terms of this Agreement;
   (c) you drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
   (d) damage is caused by careless or wilful conduct;
   (e) you drive on restricted, closed, dirt of unsealed roads;
   (f) the articles damaged are appliances or fixtures inside the Vehicle unless in the case of a motor accident.
   (g) DAMAGE CAUSED BY SINGLE VEHICLE ROLL OVER. A single vehicle roll over is considered a breach of our terms and conditions and you will be liable for full recovery and replacement costs.

2.3 In the event of any accident you must immediately complete, in full, the accident claim form provided to you at pick up as part of your rental papers. You acknowledge that failure to provide complete and accurate details related to the accident will result in administrative fees of $330, and, where applicable, police report fees of $100.00 regardless of your liability reduction.
