Excess Reduction

JUCY Stress-free excess reduction of $30 per day reduces the excess to NIL, for all damage to the vehicle excluding single-vehicle rollover, underbody and overhead damage. No security bond is frozen from your credit card on pick up. Please read more about Jucy's excess reduction policies here before you hire your Jucy campervan.

If you choose to not have any excess reduction(Risk Taker), Jucy will pre-authorize (hold) the full amount of the excess (up to $5000) as a bond on the day of pick up and this amount is auto-released between 48 hours to 7 days from the pre-authorization date from our end. However, it may take  7-30 days for the funds to show back up (depending on the bank/card provider).

If you have Stress Free or Stress Free Plus and use a Credit card for the booking, then you have no excess and no security bond. However, if you are using a Debit card, Jucy will hold $300 as a security bond to cover any infringements and/or other charges (your vehicle excess will remain $0). This security bond will be pre-authorised on the debit card at the time of pickup.
