General Questions

Short for topography and terrain, TopoTerra was born out of the necessity to travel and the desire to explore the endless terrain right in our very own backyards. We truly believe that everyone should have the means to explore, become one with nature, and take advantage of beautiful surroundings. We specialize in off-grid adventure vehicle and camping rentals to help you do just that. Whether you’re looking to head up to the mountains with the family, for a quick weekend trip to Baja, or a full blown overlanding expedition, we’ve got the vehicles and equipment to get you where you want to go. Adventure is our specialty, and travel is our desire. Find your freedom today!

We currently offer off-road overland style trucks, trailers and rooftop tents. Soon we plan to offer camper vans and, OHV’s (side by sides, dirt bikes, etc).

You are renting by the night, not the day.

Departure times (pick up) are in the afternoon between 1-4pm, and return times are in the morning between 9-11am. Early departures and late returns can be accommodated for an additional fee depending on availability.

Yes, insurance is a mandatory component when renting in order to protect you the renter, as well as our vehicles.

Rental insurance can either be provided by your own personal auto insurance policy (if they will cover you) or through one of our 3rd party insurance providers. For more information on insurance, please contact a TopoTerra representative.

Mexico and Canada travels are permitted on certain vehicles with added rental insurance and a larger security deposit. Please consult a TopoTerra representative for a list of approved rental options.

Off-road travel is permitted with the understanding that in certain situations, insurance coverage may be voided. At no time is extreme off-roading (rock crawling, water crossings, mudding, etc.) allowed. Renter is acknowledging that they understand this when signing the contract, and are taking 100% financial responsibility for the rental, regardless if insurance covers the damage or loss.

There is a 20% or a $300-$500 down payment (which ever is greater) required at time of booking to reserve the rental. The balance will be charged 14-days prior to departure and the security deposit three days prior to departure.

From the date of reservation and up to 30 days before departure, TopoTerra will refund the down payment amount less a $50 processing fee. If canceled within 30 days of departure, but more than 14 days from departure, 50% of down payment amounts will be refunded. If canceled within 14 days of departure, no refunds will be given and full reservation amount will be due. Please allow seven days to process any refund.

The minimum age for rentals is 25 years old. With OHV’s rentals, the minimum driving age is 18 if accompanied by an adult 25 years or older. All renters must pass a basic DMV background check. International drivers are welcome with a valid passport, driver’s license from your country and an international driver’s permit (available online) if your native license is not in English.
