Personal Injury is not covered by vehicle insurance, personal travel insurance is strongly recommended.
Not all Southern African vehicles are insured and it is also NOT compulsory to be insured against third party property. It is therefore at times impossible to recover from these drivers, even through the legal system. LIABILITY MUST NOT BE ADMITTED NOR ANY OF SETTLEMENT MADE.
Accidents must be reported within 24 hours to the head office of MAUI and BRITZ and to the police and an accident report must be given to the return branch
If the rental vehicle is involved in an accident and is not driveable, a replacement vehicle, if available, may be collected from the closest branch
If the hirer requires a replacement vehicle to be delivered due to an accident, then these charges will be for the hirers account (R/N$ 5 000). If the hirer is unable or unwilling to take a replacement vehicle, no refunds for early termination will apply
No refund of rental days lost will be considered during the period in which a replacement vehicle is being organised
Should there be no replacement vehicle available, no refund for lost rental days will be considered
Should the hirer continue with a replacement vehicle then a new rental agreement needs to be entered into where payment of another CDW and bond conditions will apply. Your first CDW 3 contract through your agent cannot be renewed.
Damage costs are established by a quotation of repair from MAUI and BRITZ panel beaters and are substantiated by a report from a duly accredited Loss Assessor. No negotiation will be entered into in relation to these costs
MAUI and BRITZ reserve the right to apply the above conditions as they deem fit.
MAUI and BRITZ reserve the right to charge the hirer after the term of the rental for
Any traffic or parking fines. An additional amount of R 350 for administration purposes will be added to the amount of the fine
Any damages and accidents that we have not been made aware of on the return of the vehicle
The hirer is responsible for insurance of personal property. To avoid possible theft, valuables should not be left in the vehicle. In major cities, it is advisable to leave the vehicle in a caravan park and utilise public transport or tours to visit the inner city.
Vehicles are built on light truck chassis and do not have the road handling abilities of a car. The following caution must be taken
Consideration for the condition of the road and the weather conditions; it is more difficult to control a vehicle on unsealed roads. Please note a Maui motorhome is not designed to drive on unsealed roads and damages (interior and exterior) may occur.
Keep within the speed limit, not exceeding 100 km/h on sealed roads and 60 80 km/h on unsealed roads
It is strongly recommended that driving at night be avoided; wandering animals often stray onto the roads
Your vehicle is handed over to you without fuel unless you have requested it. Upon return no refund for excess fuel will be authorized. Should your vehicle be changed over at any time no refund for fuel will be given.
A pre-rental vehicle inspection will be required to be made by the hirer on collection of the vehicle. The vehicle shall be deemed to be in good order, condition and repair and properly filled with oil and water, unless otherwise indicated in the vehicle condition report.
Minimum rental is 5 days and 15 days for collection/return in Botswana, Zimbabwe or Zambia. When calculating the number of days, the day of collection is counted as day one regardless of collection time. The day of return is counted as the final day.
Motorhome and car rentals with MAUI and BRITZ in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa can be combined to qualify for long-term rates, if the rental is within a three month period, i.e. one 14 day rental plus one 7 day rental qualifies for 21+ day rate.
The daily rental rate that applies on the date of pick up will be the applicable rate for the duration of the rental regardless of any season change during the term of the rental.
CHANGE OF VEHICLE
MAUI and BRITZ reserve the right to substitute a comparable or superior vehicle should the requested vehicle not be available due to unforeseen circumstances. This shall not constitute a breach of contract and does not entitle the hirer to any refund.
