General Terms of Rental Agreement
1. When we rent you a canoe you should be able to prove your
paddling ability and experience. Proof includes the word or recommendation
of an experienced paddler or your own previous experience with
2. In the event that you have never paddled a boat before, you
may still rent from us, but we may designate certain rivers or
parts of rivers that you may not use. Consider whether you may
not benefit from the services of a qualified guide.
3. We must confirm your intended paddling route. You must not
deviate from this route without our agreement.
4. Each item of equipment that you rent from us will require
a certain security deposit. The amount and terms of that deposit
will be decided by the manager of the rental office, taking into
consideration your route, previous experience, other guarantees,
recommendations and qualifications.
5. We may refuse to rent a canoe without transportation if you
are unable to provide suitable means for the transportation of
the canoe (see canoe transportation).
You are fully responsible for maintaining the condition and value
of the equipment from the moment you receive it from the rental office
until you return it to us. In order to avoid unnecessary problems,
do not overestimate your own abilities and do not take unnecessary
risks. Our rental terms are user-friendly to the extent that you
are careful with our equipment. Boats and paddles are subject to
mechanical stress and wear and tear. This is perfectly normal and
we will not ask you to compensate us for this. However, if you return
the canoe with a broken yoke or thwart, a hull burnt in a campfire
or an end broken against a dam, you will be held responsible. Remember,
other people will want to use this equipment after you.
Needless to say, paddling is a heavy physical activity and you must
be sure of your own physical fitness and strength. Campo cannot be
responsible for the possible consequences of overestimating your
own capabilities, or of the use of alcohol before or during paddling.
If you intend to take a child with you, it is your responsibility
to ensure that the child has an adequate personal floatation device.
You may rent children's personal floatation devices from us, as well
as special child seats for canoes.
During your trip, please respect private property, including, if
necessary, the bushes on private land…you may, of course use the
public river banks.
Please stay away from National Nature Reserves. See our route guides
for more information and possible surprises.
Please leave camp-sites cleaner than you found them. Use gas stoves
to prepare food - they are convenient and produce less smoke than
riverside wood. Stay at camp-sites recommended by us.
Rental rates and periods
The minimum rental period is one day (00-24:00). At the same time,
we will not make an additional charge if you collect your gear on
the previous day (between 17.00-19.00) or return it the following
day (between 09.00-12.00). We are unable to compensate you for unused
Our rate plan is based on the "first day" and "each
additional day" principle. With each successive day of your
trip, your experience increases and our risk decreases. Take a look
at our rates to help you save money when planning your trip.
Check out our suggested routes - if you find something suitable,
we guarantee to provide you with the best rates and service.
We do not rent small individual items of equipment. Basic rentals
must include a boat, or at least a tent. There may be exceptions
for established customers.
Be sure to book your trip ahead of time. In the event that the success
of your trip is dependent upon rented equipment, we strongly suggest
you make reservations to avoid any unpleasant surprises on the morning
of your trip. Reservations made a week or two in advance are best
for you and us.
We hope to hear from you soon - call us on 922 2339.
We wish you an enjoyable trip!
