A rental agreement will be required to be signed on collection of the vehicle. By signing the rental agreement, the hirer acknowledges that he has read and understands these terms and conditions. We offer limited or unlimited kilometre rental plans. The selected rental plan cannot be changed after collection of the vehicle (e.g. at the end of the rental). The rental period includes the pickup and drop-off days. Extra kilometres on a limited kilometre plan are charged at the applicable rate. The minimum hire period is 3 days within South
Africa and 14 days in, or going to, Namibia or Botswana. Rates are as per the rate chart published on our website at the time of booking.
No refund of the rental fee will be made if the vehicle is returned for any reason prior to the end of the rental period. If, for any reason beyond our control, the reserved vehicle is not available, we reserve the right to substitute a comparable or superior vehicle at no extra cost to the hirer. This shall not constitute a breach of contract and does not entitle the hirer to any form of refund.
A credit card debit voucher imprint will be taken by us on collection of the vehicle for the excess co-payment option taken by the hirer (if applicable to the option) and returned without delay on return of the vehicle, after deductions for breakages and/or damage as per the level of excess waiver agreed to. We reserves the right to use credit card details, after informing the card holder thereof, to charge the hirer after completion of the rental for any traffic fines and /or any incidental or accident damage which we not aware of on return of the vehicle. A cleaning fee of R300.00 will be charged if the toilet bowl has not been emptied or the vehicle is returned in an excessively dirty condition.
DRIVERS LICENCE :
An international driving licence, or a licence with a photograph and wording in English and which is approved by the South African traffic authorities, or a valid South African driver's licence, is required for all drivers. Drivers' age limits are 23-75 and no leaner drivers allowed. If licence is under 2 years old a 5% surcharge will apply in the event of a claim. Copies of all drivers' licenses are to be submitted to us by email on confirmation of the hire. All drivers must sign the Rental Agreement.
FRIDGE AND STOVE OPERATION
Fridges and stoves are tested before rental and are handed over in working condition. We cannot held responsible for their possible failure. Please remember this is not a normal domestic fridge and may not be as effective in very hot conditions. For proper operation of the fridge, especially vehicles with convection units, the vehicle must preferably be parked level.
GENERAL REPAIRS - Vehicles are covered by AA Fleetcare from the Automobile Association of SA (see AA instructions in vehicle)
While every vehicle is thoroughly serviced and checked, breakdowns can occur unexpectedly. The hirer is authorised to have repairs carried out to a limit of RIOOO per instance. Please settle directly with the supplier. Refunds will only be made if invoices are produced and if repairs are not as a result of driver or hirer negligence. Any problems with the vehicle or equipment must be reported to us as soon as possible. Larger repairs will be arranged, at the discretion of us, upon the hirer reporting the problem to us. We will not be responsible for accommodation costs due to immobilization during repairs or accident damage repairs but will, at their discretion, refund the daily hire rental rate for the days lost. We should be allowed up to 24 hours to solve any problem before compensation for lost time will be made. (See also clause 13 Immobilization).
Take note at all times of all gauges while driving. The hirer is responsible for the vehicle for the full period of the hire and must maintain the vehicle during this period.
Hirers are required to make periodic checks (at least every 1000 km) of:
Oil and Water levels - must be maintained within limits (preferably check when vehicle is cold, or when petrol /diesel is filled up)
Tyre Pressures - must be maintained within limits specified in the owner's manual.
NB: Turbo Diesel engines must idle for not less than 60 seconds after starting and 60 seconds before switching off.
Engine Damage: Should the vehicle be driven with the engine in an overheated condition or low on oil and the engine be damaged as a result thereof, the hirer will be held responsible for the total costs of repairs.
Clutch: The hirer will be held responsible for damage to the clutch due to improper use.
Diesel engines may need to have the oil changed during a hire period. Should you exceed the required service interval distance on your travels, please have a service station / garage change the oil (only Delvac 15W50 Diesel oil, or equivalent, is to be used) and oil filter (provided in rear locker as not always available in small towns) and pay for the oil and service. We will refund the costs to you on return of the vehicle.
IMMOBILIZATION - We will, at their discretion, be responsible for accommodation costs due to immobilization during minor repairs and/or minor accident repairs if not caused by the fault of the driver or hirer or will, if deemed necessary by HCH, refund the daily hire rental rate for the days lost.
TYRE DAMAGE - Please check tyre pressures regularly
We are not responsible for any punctures or damage to tyres (such as blow outs etc.) during the hire period and repair costs are for the hirers account. If the driver wishes to be reimbursed for new tyres, the damaged tyre must be returned to us for inspection and evaluation by the tyre manufacturer.
Tyre replacement costs will only be reimbursed if the manufacturer accepts a warranty claim on the faulty tyre. When replacing a tyre, please ensure that it is of the same size and ply rating, is Commercial weight, i.e. "C" rated and, if possible, of the same brand. NO retread or reconditioned tyre is acceptable and total insurance cover will become the responsibility of the hirer should the incorrect type of tyre be fitted.
ROAD & AREA RESTRICTIONS and SPEEDS - See CLAUSE 12 below
Motorhomes are large and heavy vehicles and are affected by speed, road conditions and wind. Crosswinds and buffeting caused by passing large trucks etc can be dangerous, especially at high speeds. The hirer acknowledges that he /she is aware of the care and attention required when driving a motorhome /camper and of all safety and maintenance requirements of the vehicle.
Safe speeds are 80 to 90 km per hour, but must be adjusted to suit road and wind conditions. At no time may a speed of 100 km per hour be exceeded.
Two-wheel drive vehicles can only be driven on tar/bitumen (paved) roads - with the exception of recognised hard roads and in game parks where the maximum speed limit of 5Okph must not be exceeded. Any damage caused to the vehicle resulting from travel on unauthorized, unpaved roads will be for the account of the hirer. We reserves the right at its sole discretion to restrict vehicle movement in certain areas at any time due to adverse road or weather conditions, or for any reasonable cause.
NB: Campers are not allowed to travel in the Kalahari Park (Kgalagadi Park), Okavango Delta & on all gravel road passes including Swartberg,Sani, Bloukrans, Baviaanskloof & Marakele passes. Travel is prohibited on all "D" roads in Namibia, Sossusvlei to Walvis Bay, Fish River Canyon, van Zyl's Pass, Skeleton Coast, Kaokoland, Brandberg and Sandwich Harbour. Travel is not permitted in Zimbabwe (other than Vic Falls), Zambia (other than Livingstone), Malawi, Angola or Mozambique without prior permission from HCH. NO off-road driving whatsoever is permitted with 2 wheel drive vehicles. Please confirm with HCH before your trip if planning to go to these areas.
INSURANCE All vehicles are comprehensively insured through Zurich Insurance Company and include Collision Damage, Third Party and Theft cover.
Hirers have three co-payment waiver options - see below.
OPTIONS: (See also Clause 13)
a. Basic Cover: Hirer will be responsible, whether at fault or not, for the first R 29 000.00 of costs in the event of any damage to either the vehicle or a Third Party vehicle or property. The hirer is responsible for all "off-road", wilful, undercarriage, overhead or tyre damage. Holding deposit is required
b. W1: The rate is R135 per day. Hirer will be responsible, whether at fault or not, for the first R 17 500.00 of costs in the event of any damage to either the vehicle or a Third Party vehicle or property. The hirer is responsible for all "off-road", wilful, undercarriage, overhead or tyre damage. No holding deposit required.
c. W2: The rate is R200 per day. Hirer will be responsible, whether at fault or not, for the first R 5 000.00 of costs in the event of any damage to either the vehicle or a Third Party vehicle or property. Hirer is responsible for all glass, radio, "offroad", wilful, undercarriage, and overhead or tyre damage. NO holding deposit required.
d. W3: The rate is R270 per day. Full cover - no co-payment is required for collision damage. The hirer is responsible for "off-road", under-body, overhead, tyre and wilful damage. NO holding deposit required. Tyre damage is excluded in all insurance options - excluding factory faults or fair wear and tear.
The hirer shall be responsible for the full amount of damage or replacement costs if:
vehicle is abused in any way, such as incorrect use of the clutch, brakes or gearbox
the driver is found to have been reckless, negligent or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
the hirer permits unlisted, underage or unlicensed driving of the vehicle
under-body or overhead damage is caused by water or seawater immersion, sitting on roof or bonnet
the vehicle is taken into unauthorized areas or onto restricted roads
theft occurs as a result of keys being left in the vehicle
rental agreement is violated or details are found to have been misrepresented
any damage is deemed to have been caused wilfully by hirer or a person/s in his party
Note 1: Insurance co-payment options do not cover "Off-Road" damage or overhead and/or under-body and/or water damage or any damage sustained due to negligence of the hirer or his/her designated driver in a collision with a fixed stationary object or tyre damage. Hirer will therefore be responsible if this type of damage is found on return of the vehicle.
Note 2: CO-PAYMENTS - The co-payments (where applicable) can be paid in cash, traveller's cheques or credit card (a manual imprint of the credit card will be taken prior to commencement of the hire). Please be aware that not all vehicles on the roads in Southern Africa are insured and that it is not compulsory to be insured against damage to 3rd party property. It is therefore often very difficult to recover money from the drivers of other vehicles whether they are the guilty party or not. The co-payment, as and when applicable, is payable, regardless of who is at fault, unless recovered by our insurers. The co-payment amount as per the option taken by the hirer, is payable immediately upon return of the vehicle to us or, at our sole discretion, on demand from the hirer after an assessment has been done by the necessary repairers and a quotation obtained. If payment is to be delayed, the necessary authorization form is to be signed by the hirer on return of the vehicle. Any adjustment by our insurers will be returned to the hirer at the earliest convenience of us.
Note 3: Holding deposit - If no insurance cover is taken, a holding deposit equal to the co-payment will be required.
Note 4: DRIVING: Campers / Motorhomes are built on a commercial vehicle chassis and must be driven as such.
Most accidents occur as a result of:
a. driving too fast,
b. driving when tired
c. driving at night.
Please consider the weather conditions and the condition and width of the roads you drive on. Animals and pedestrians crossing roads in Africa are a serious hazard, especially after dark.
ACCIDENTS & INCIDENTAL DAMAGE:
In the event of an accident the following conditions apply:
a. Hirer is entirely responsible for all costs of repairs and/or replacement as per the co-payment option chosen.
b. Hirer is responsible for the return of the damaged vehicle to the original collection depot.
c. If hirer requires a replacement vehicle to be delivered, a drop-off charge will be levied.
d. No refund for rental days lost will be allowed for the period during which the vehicle is being replaced.
e. If hirer is unwilling or unable to accept, or we are unwilling or unable to provide, a replacement vehicle, no refund for early termination of the contract will apply.
All accidents, no matter how minor, must be reported to the nearest police station within 24 hours and police case reference numbers communicated immediately to us. Hirers may be required to complete a detailed insurance claim form at the end of the hire period. In the event of an accident the hirer is still entirely responsible for the full rental fee together with the payment of the relevant vehicle co-payment. Failure to report an accident to the nearest police station may result in the claim not being accepted by the insurers and the hirer being responsible for all own vehicle and third party damage If the vehicle is involved in an accident a replacement vehicle, if available, will be arranged at the sole discretion of us. Insurance does not cover damage to the interior of the vehicle or loss or breakage of equipment unless as a result of an accident. All equipment and accessories supplied shall be returned (fair wear and tear excluded) upon completion of the hire.
Damage, as a result of negligence, to the suspension or any undercarriage fittings and / or exhaust system, other than fair wear and tear, will also be for the hirers account. Roof vents of the campers are handed over in good working order. Please be aware of these when driving or parking under restricted overhead clearance. If damaged in any way, the replacement costs are R 4550 per vent and/or R18000 for a roof-top air conditioner, and will be for the hirer's account as they are not covered by insurance. When reversing the camper, it is essential to have a person outside directing the driver.
Water leakage in heavy rain is an unavoidable problem in campers. We reserve the right to charge the hirer for any incidental damage found on the vehicle and not notified to us on return of the vehicle.
If you wish to visit neighbouring countries agreed to by us, please advise us when booking as surcharges apply and additional insurance cover as well as travel documents for the vehicle, have to be arranged.
Valuables. Please do not leave valuables in the vehicle, especially where visible from outside. In the cities, it is advisable to leave the vehicle in a caravan park and take a taxi/public transport to the inner city. Hirers are to secure the vehicle at all times. Wild animals (e.g. baboons) will enter through windows or doors left open, looking for food.
Personal property Insurance for all persons accompanying the hirer is the responsibility of the hirer.
Personal injury to the hirer or anyone accompanying the hirer or anyone travelling in the vehicle who is deemed by their presence in the vehicle to have the permission of the hirer is not covered by the vehicle insurance and we strongly recommend that you take out Personal Travel Insurance.
The hirer shall have no claim of any nature against us, it's members or the owner of the vehicle, for any injury, loss or damage suffered or sustained by the hirer, or anyone accompanying the hirer, arising from any cause, including, without limitations, the use of the camper and provisions thereof.
Operation of all equipment within the vehicle is demonstrated to the hirer and is in working condition at the commencement of the rental. We accept no responsibility for any malfunctioning of this equipment during the rental period. Gas bottles are to be filled if necessary and may not be exchanged.
Traffic fines are the hirer's responsibility. We reserve the right to charge the hirer after completion of their hire for any fines received later plus an admin fee of R250.00. Automatic toll gate fees will be charged to the hirer when received. All fines and fees can sometimes be received only months after the hire and hirer will then be informed of costs and HCH reserves the right to debit these to the hirer.
A fee of R450 will be charged if the chemical toilet has not been emptied or if the camper is returned in an excessively dirty condition. The rental conditions are constructed and governed by the laws of the Republic of South Africa.
The Camper Van Company is indemnified by the hirer against all claims that may arise from the vehicle hire contract or use of the camper, its equipment or fittings. We shall not be liable for any damage, injury or loss whatsoever suffered by the hirer, his/her dependants or any occupants arising from this agreement or from use of the camper, its equipment or fittings.
