If you book early and there are plenty of motorhomes available, you will pay a much lower price. If you book closer to departure date or book for a high demand period then the rate will be higher. This is a similar system to that used by airlines.

Ferry Restrictions:
Ferry reservations can be dificult to manage during high season. We recommend your clients make a reservation for at least a 30 foot vehicle on the ferry, irrespective as to the size of the motorhome reserved, to avoid problems due to possible upgrades.

Travel Restrictions:
Coverages are invalid if problems occur in the following areas and all recovery expenses are at your own cost. Violations of these restrictions void damage waivers and the client will be held liable for all vehicle damages including to tires, towing charges and other related expenses as a result of a break down associated with operating in these areas. Clients should consult the Renter Assistance Guide and the departure location personnel for complete information on travel restrictions and local circumstances at the time they collect their motorhome.

Travel on all public and/or numbered roads is permitted. Travel on non-public roads, unpaved back roads, trails and the like commonly called ‘logging roads’ or on any surface subjecting the vehicle to unreasonable damage or road hazard is prohibited. You may receive further information from Cruise America regarding seasonal travel restrictions as well. We reserve the right to restrict travel, dependent on current road conditions.

Death Valley:
Vehicles may be operated with EXTREME CARE in Death Valley and other desert areas during the months of July and August. In Summer, clients visit these areas at their own risk and Cruise America will not be held responsible for extraordinary vehicle recovery and other charges. During certain periods these areas are not habitable and could pose a danger to the driver and passengers.

Due to restrictions on vehicle heights, propane gas and parking, vehicles with propane are not permit ted in Manhattan and are not permitted to travel through any underground or underwater tunnels.

Travel across the United States border into Mexico in a Cruise America vehicle is strictly prohibited.
