Traffic Infringements

We reserve the right to charge the customer for any traffic infringements. An administration fee applies. All accidents must be reported within 24 hours.

Bond Deposit

A deposit is required on all vehicles at time of collection. This is determined by the excess reduction option. Your security deposit can be paid by credit card. The credit card holder must be present and able to sign for the vehicle security deposit upon vehicle collection. The cardholder is jointly and severally liable for any damage to the rental vehicle. The security deposit is fully refundable provided the vehicle is returned on time undamaged in clean order, with a full fuel tank and to the right location. Failure to return the vehicle clean, undamaged or without a full tank or to the wrong location will incur a fee which will be advised upon return of the vehicle.

Vehicle Excess

The hirer is responsible for the excess of the cost of damage to the rented vehicle or third party property, including single vehicle accidents, windscreen and tyre damage, towing and recovery costs, theft, fire, break-in or vandalism. This also includes the cost of the daily rentals for the period the vehicle is off road for accident repairs. The excess is applicable regardless of who is at fault and must be paid at the time the accident report is completed, not at the completion of the rental. The excess will be refunded if we are successful in recovering the cost of the damages from the third party. Please note that insurance claims can take months to resolve. The excess applies in respect of each claim, not rental. All damage covered is forfeited if the terms and conditions of the rental agreement are breached.

All insurance cover will be made void if any of the following exclusions are breached:

Insurance does not cover

submersion in water

contact with salt water

creek or river crossings

driving through flooded areas
