All the Apollo vehicles have a gasoline engine,
automatic transmission, dash (i.e. engine-powered) and roof (i.e. 110 V, 60 Hz) air conditioning,
stove burners, microwave oven, sink,
refrigerator, freezer, furnace, toilet, shower, and 110 V hook-up.
Included in the preparation fee are the first tank of propane,
the first supply of toilet chemicals,
and the final cleaning of the outside of the vehicle. (All Apollo motorhomes should nevertheless be returned
in a reasonable state of cleanliness, completely free of mud, lest the client be charged a cleaning fee.
Of course Apollo will deliver the motorhome in a clean condition both the inside and outside.)
The following items are also included by default at no extra charge:
All Apollo's USA rentals also include 24/7 nationwide roadside assistance via a toll-free helpline.
The IdeaMerge-generated total price also includes the tax and any other fees that might apply
(i.e. the vendor's vehicle preparation fee, charges for optional extras, any applicable one-way fee, etc).
There is no charge for additional drivers.
Apollo USA rentals include no default miles per day.
Rather, miles can be pre-booked in blocks of 500 miles (800 kilometers)
costing US$ 156 each.
Extra miles are charged upon return at US$ 0.40 per mile.
Unlimited miles are available only in terms of the inclusive package described below.
The included liability (i.e. third party), collision and
comprehensive insurance inheres a deductible (a.k.a. excess; applicable no
matter who is at fault) of US$ 1500.
Important: In addition to the deductible, Apollo will charge
an administration fee of US$ 75 per insurance claim and per
speeding ticket, parking fine, traffic ticket, or toll-road fine.
Clients must arrive at the rental depot by their own means, e.g. by taxi.
Clients cannot park a car on the rental depot grounds for the duration of their motorhome rental.
Which if any portable GPS navigation option on the open market is best?
IdeaMerge's analysis of portable GPS navigation solutions.
If you intend to travel to the Burning Man festival with the Apollo rental vehicle (including the Cheapa Campa brand), Apollo
will charge you a special US$ 700 surcharge upon the pick-up occasion.
If a client travels to the Burning Man festival with the vehicle and does not advise Apollo/Cheapa Campa of this beforehand,
Apollo would consider such travel a breach of their rental agreement and as such the client would be held responsible
for any and all loss of or damage to the vehicle from any cause, regardless of fault, and for all related expenses,
this is in addition to the US$ 700 Burning Man surcharge.
If you want your Apollo USA motorhome or campervan rental to include
any of the following, you should order such items upon placing the reservation.
Of course the IdeaMerge online order software will prompt you in these regards.
Moreover the IdeaMerge software will calculate whether the better deal for
you in these respects is to (a) buy Apollo's inclusive package which for
US$ 90 per night (minimum cost US$ 800, maximum cost US$ 3200),
decreasing to US$ 80 per night (minimum cost US$ 800, maximum cost US$ 3200)
for pick-ups occurring after March 2013, includes all the items
below (except the possible cost of the first-aid kit and generator use), as well as
Apollo's prep fee, unlimited miles, any one-way fee (except with the Cheapa Campa brand vehicles),
Apollo's duty/tax/administration fee, the security deposit admin fee,
and any administration fees that might otherwise upon the return
or else (b) to pay for said items and fees individually and to pay upon the return occasion for any miles beyond
the default included miles noted above.
Again, don't worry about this decision, for the IdeaMerge software will figure
it out for you based on the information you enter.
Sorry but Apollo USA does not offer bicycles for hire, nor do they offer bicycle racks for hire.
Bicycles can be transported in the motorhome, but the motorhomes less than 22 feet long are not very suitable in this respect.
