RVshare makes paying for your RV rental safe and simple: transactions are automated, secure, and guaranteed up to $10,000.
Depending on when you book your reservation and the RV owner’s payment policies, when the automated payments take place can vary. If you are booking your reservation more than 30 days before the start date, then the owner will have the option to allow you to either split your payments in two, or simply have you pay for the entire rental at the time of booking. If you’re booking your RV within 30 days of pick-up, 100% of payment will be due at the time of booking.
By default, if your reservation is being split into two payments, then your Payment 1 of 2 will occur at booking and will cover half of the rental price and fees and your Payment 2 of 2 will be processed 30 days prior to the reservation beginning. However, each owner has the ability to customize the amount due at booking, so if you are unsure of what will be due and when, you can always ask the owner for clarification.
If your rental is covered by RVshare Insurance and you’ve signed the rental agreement, the Insurance payment (billed separately) will also take place 30 days before the reservation begins.
Regardless of booking date, the security deposit for booked rentals will be authorized two days prior to pick-up. This is an authorization and will appear on your bank statement as such or as a “pending transaction.” At minimum, this authorization will be held for the duration of the rental and also an additional three days after the rental has ended. This allows the owner of the RV to inspect for damages and overages, if applicable.
If you have questions about when payments will be processed, you can always check your RVshare Dashboard. Access your Inbox conversation with the owner of the RV, select “+View Details” under your booked reservation, and at the bottom you will see the Traveler Payment information. Here you will be able to view all scheduled and completed payments.
