Personal Injury
Personal Injury is not covered by vehicle insurance, personal travel insurance is strongly recommended.

Accidents
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. LIABLITY 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 drivable, 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 hirer’s 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.
Infringements
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
Valuables
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.

Safety
  • 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
Vehicle Handover
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.

Vehicle Condition
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.

Rental Duration
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.

Multiple Rentals
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

Season Change
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

Branch Hours for Pick Up and Drop Off
Branches are located in Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, Windhoek, Maun, Harare and Victoria Falls. Office hours are Monday – Friday from 08h00 – 16h30. Outside of office hours collections and returns are by arrangement only. All branches are closed on Christmas Day (25 December)..

Licence
A valid non-endorsed driver’s licence is required; an international licence is preferred.

Minimum Age
Drivers must be 21 years or older

Road Restrictions
Vehicles may be taken into South Africa’s neighbouring states but are not allowed into Angola or Malawi. All insurance cover is void if vehicles enter prohibited areas.

MAUI and BRITZ reserve the right, at its sole discretion, to restrict vehicle movements in certain areas due to adverse road or weather conditions, political situations or any other reason.

Repairs
Minor repairs up to the value of R/N$ 1 000 may be effected without authorisation and will be reimbursed upon presentation of receipts.

For Major repairs, over R/N$ 1 000 authorisation with an authorisation number must first be obtained from MAUI and BRITZ head office in Johannesburg.

Faults with the radio, air conditioning, refrigerator or microwave are not classified as breakdowns; no refunds will be made for repair time on these items.

Pets
No pets are permitted in any vehicles.

Payment
Full payment is required on the day of collection.

Excjange Rate/Currency Variations
All credit card transactions are conducted in South African Rand. Due to exchange rate fluctuations there could be some variance in any amount refunded compared to the amount initially charged. No liability is accepted for any variance in this regard.

If a credit card is presented as payment, the credit card holder will be jointly and severally liable as the hirer.

Refunds
In the unlikely event of a refund, this will be done according to the applicable agent rates and not the advertised per day rate.

Reservation / Vehicle Confirmation
Maui and Britz reserve the right to upgrade a client to another vehicle category without prior notice. This does not constitute a breach of contract or non-performance.
