Maui Motorhomes NZ (domestic) Rental Terms1. COLLECTION
Vehicle handover can take approx. 2-3 hours, depending on the questions asked and client feedback. This involves a thorough explanation and demonstration of the vehicle and its equipment. Kindly note that signing the vehicle condition report is an acceptance of the condition of the vehicle. THRSA must be notified within the first 24 hours of collection (clutch damage within the first 3 days of collection), should the renter experience any glitches, problems, malfunctions or discomfort. No consideration will be given to claims against such experiences, and no compensation or liability for lost time will be given, if issues are only reported on return of the vehicle. Rental days lost due to a vehicle that has been collected after the agreed date will not be credited.
When returning the vehicle, please set aside an hour for the vehicle and equipment to be checked. Although we request that the vehicle be returned with a full fuel tank, as a courtesy to the next renter our representatives will take the vehicle to our refuelling station to ensure that the vehicle is full. Should top-ups be required, the fuel amount will be deducted from the renter’s nominated credit card. Vehicles must be returned clean, in order for the vehicle check in to be done. Vehicles returned excessively dirty will be charged a cleaning fee of R/N$1,000.00. Toilet cassette in the motorhomes must be emptied and cleaned or a cleaning fee of R/N$ 1,000-00 will be charged. Any vehicles returned later than the agreed return date, or outside of normal office hours (without prior arrangement), will be charged a full day’s rental per calendar day. Rental days lost due to the vehicle being returned before the agreed return date will not be credited.
A valid EB or code 08 national or an ENGLISH international driver’s licence for vehicles less than 3500kg, is required.
4. MINIMUM AGE
The minimum age permitted to rent is 23 years and the maximum is 85 years. 5. eTOLL POLICY
For all rentals despatched from, departing and/or returning to our Johannesburg depot will be charged a fee of R500 per rental agreement. This fee will be included in your quotation when applicable. eToll tags are installed in all our vehicles. These tags are debited with gantry levies in Gauteng, and also open gates on debit at toll gates on the major roads in South Africa that bear the eToll logo.
6. LIABILITY OPTIONS
THRSA offers 2 liability cover options, namely, Standard Cover & Super Cover. This cover is NOT a personal liability cover, but cover for damage to our vehicles and/or 3rd party property. Details below:
This cover carries an excess of R/N$45,000.00 which is applicable in the event of any accident or damage to either our vehicle or third party property. This excess of R/N$45,000.00 is pre-authorised on the renter’s Visa or MasterCard credit card at the time of collection. Funds will only be deducted from this amount, should the renter return the vehicle and/or equipment in a damaged condition or for any 3rd party damage. If no claims exist, this excess is released within 21-30 working days from date of return, by the renter’s financial institution. Standard Cover does not include repair to or replacement of tyres and windscreens.
A daily rate is charged per day as per your quotation/rental agreement detailed as CER2. This cover is a NO EXCESS cover and is applicable to the vehicle and third party property damage and includes the cost of replacing or repairing of windscreens and tyres (in South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland), radio theft and recovery costs. A security deposit of R/N$ 3,000.00 is pre-authorised on the renter’s Visa or MasterCard credit card at the time of collection to ensure that the vehicle is returned to the agreed location, on the agreed date, in a clean condition and no items are lost or damaged. This security deposit is fully refunded within 21-30 working days, after date of return, should all the terms and conditions be adhered to.
7. CLAIMS HANDLING FEE
A handling fee of R/N$500.00 is charged on all damage/accident claims irrespective of the liability cover option taken.
Single vehicle accidents are included in all liability cover options, except in the case of roll-overs. In case of damage to the vehicle rented, the following will apply:
All accidents must be reported to THRSA, and by law, to the Local Police within 24 hours. An AR (accident report) number from the police must be obtained at the time of reporting the incident. This proves that the accident has been registered. Failing to report accidents may void all liability cover and the renter becomes fully liable for all costs. We advise that you take as many photographs of the accident scene and also obtain the third party details when applicable. These can be recorded on the reverse side of the rental pack envelope supplied to you on collection. We also suggest you take a photograph of the driver’s licences of the persons involved. An accident report which is provided in the RENTAL PACK, must also be completed. These documents and records of evidence will be submitted to THRSA in order to process the incident.
The renter is responsible for the recovery of the damaged vehicle to the original rental branch depending on the liability cover option taken. A replacement vehicle will only be dispatched once payment of all damages / recovery costs to the first vehicle is made. THRSA reserves the right to withhold a replacement vehicle; this does not entitle the client to any claims against THRSA.
If the renter requires a replacement vehicle to be delivered, charges will be levied according to the liability cover option taken on the rental.
If the renter is not able to take a replacement vehicle, no refunds for early termination of the contract will be made.
Should the renter continue with a replacement vehicle, this vehicle will be noted under the current rental contract and standard cover will be applicable. This includes a new R/N$ 45,000-00 pre-authorisation on the nominated credit card. Super Cover is not available on a replacement vehicle.
Should the applicable excess be charged, and should THRSA be successful in the reimbursement of that amount by the 3rd party, this amount will be refunded to the renter. This process could take up to three years. Exceptions & Conditions:
Exclusions of all cover options :
The renter is fully liable for any damage to the THRSA vehicle or third party property if:

The air-conditioning in the cabin of the vehicle, is designed to be used in South African weather conditions. In regions where the temperatures reach in excess of 30 degrees Celsius, or the humidity is higher than 60%, the unit may not work as effectively. This is normal and does not constitute grounds to request a replacement vehicle. Whenever the vehicle is stationery, or idling for prolonged periods, the cabin air-conditioner must be switched off to prevent damage. The air-conditioning in the living area of the motorhomes only works when it is plugged into a 220v power supply. This power supply can be found at most camp sites. The vehicle is supplied with an extension lead, which is plugged into the camp site power box, and then plugged into the motorhome in the socket labelled POWER INLET.
18. DUST INGRESS
It is not possible to make vehicles dust-proof and therefore refunds or claims for any dust ingress of any nature, will not be considered.
THRSA does not accept CASH or CHEQUE as payment in any way. Valid Visa/MasterCard credit cards, EFT or bank transfer payments are accepted for rentals. Pre-authorisation: THRSA only accepts valid Visa and MasterCard credit cards that are embossed, in order to place the preauthorisation for liability cover security deposits and excesses. The holder of the credit cards needs to be present at vehicle collection in order for the transaction to be processed. THRSA is not responsible for any currency fluctuations that may occur in any transactions. FULL PAYMENT must be received 14 working days prior to date of collection. 20. EQUIPMENT
All vehicles are supplied with equipment (unless otherwise agreed upon). Our liability cover options do not cover any equipment supplied with the vehicle. Any loss or damage to the equipment including items such as GPS, fridges, microwaves, etc. will be charged to your credit card. Should any of your equipment malfunction during the rental period, THRSA is not liable to provide a replacement vehicle. Repairs can be made according to clause 15 of this document, titled Vehicle Repairs.
21. ROAD RESTRICTIONS
Motorhomes can only be driven on sealed/tarred, bitumen and gravel roads in SOUTH AFRICA, SWAZILAND and LESOTHO. A onceoff cross border fee of R750.00 applies for cross border documentation into Lesotho and Swaziland. THRSA does not allow any motorhomes to enter the following countries under any circumstances: Kenya, Angola, Mozambique, Malawi, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia or Tanzania. It is highly recommended to avoid driving before sunrise or after sunset.

All cross border applications are to be accompanied by a clear copy of the renter’s passport & driver’s license to be received seven days prior to collection of the vehicle.
23. VEHICLE REPAIRS
It is possible that during your rental, small repairs may be required due to the nature of the terrain. Repairs of up to R/N$ 1,000.00 may be affected without prior authorisation from THRSA and such repairs will be reimbursed, on the submission of a claim with original receipts attached. Amounts above R/N$ 1,000.00 will require verbal/telephonic approval from THRSA on-road assistance. (The numbers are provided in your rental pack). Should approval not be obtained the claim may be disputed.
Should a call-out fee be charged by a supplier to replace a tyre, approval must be obtained from your collection branch. Should permission be granted by THRSA for an overnight stay in a lodge, due to repairs, a maximum allowance of R/N$950/US73 per night per vehicle is granted for a maximum of one night in South Africa, and two nights outside of South Africa.
Should a replacement vehicle be required due to a mechanical fault not due to negligence, THRSA will replace the vehicle within 24 hours in South Africa and 48 hrs outside of South Africa, at no extra cost to the renter.
THRSA must be informed of keys lost or locked inside a vehicle. The replacement or recovery of keys is for the renter’s account. THRSA cannot be held liable for any time/days lost and/or accommodation or any other costs incurred, due to the replacement or recovery of keys.
The renter is responsible for the repairing of flat or punctured tyres. The driver should not exceed the road traffic ordinance speed limits of 120km/h on tarred roads, and 80km/h on gravel/sealed or corrugated roads. For your safety, THRSA recommends a speed of 100km/h on tarred roads, and 60km/h on gravel/sealed or corrugated roads, and 40km/h in National Parks. Tyres get hot and pressures increase at higher speeds. Tyres are then susceptible to damage especially on uneven surfaces. When replacing a tyre, please ensure that it is a new tyre of the same brand, size and that is has a ply rating of 4mm or more. Reconditioned, second hand or re-treaded tyres are NOT acceptable. The renter is required to check the tyre pressure when the tyres are cold (i.e. not after travelling for more than 10km), at regular intervals. All tyres should be checked, including spares. The company’s minimum tread requirement is 4mm which is within the South African Road Ordinance limits of 3mm.
All THRSA vehicles are fitted with SABS approved tracking devices. Tracking is monitored in all Southern Africa destinations as allowed by THRSA. THRSA reserves the right to repossess the rental vehicle at any time if it is found illegally parked, being used to violate the law or appears to be abandoned and if the renter is in breach of any terms or conditions of the rental agreement.
The renter is liable for all fines and penalties incurred during the rental period plus an administration fee of ZAR/N$250 for each infringement or penalty notice that has been redirected by THRSA to the renter.

34. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED:
Rates and terms and conditions of rental may be subject to change. Terms of booking on this website
The rates on this website are often heavily discounted. This is due to our negotiated rates and bulk buying power. On very rare occasions, a rate may be displayed incorrectly due to our, or a vehicle supplier's error. In such a case, if you book with us at a quoted rate that is incorrect, we will notify you of any price change and give you the option to proceed or cancel. We make every effort to keep information on our site up to date, but we cannot guarantee this website is free of errors or omissions and retain the right to update or change the information published at any time.
To the extent permitted by law we/the owners of this website will not be liable to you or to any third party (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) for any direct, indirect or consequential loss or damage (including but not limited to any accident, injury, delay or loss of enjoyment) arising out of your reliance upon information contained on this website, including but not limited to your use (or inability to use) any products or services described or procured through this website.
When you pick up your vehicle, you will be required to sign a rental agreement with the supplier of the vehicle. Your rental and use of the vehicle will be governed by the terms of the rental agreement and any other documentation or information provided to you by the supplier at the time you pick up your vehicle. The rental agreement is between you and the supplier and we will not be liable to you or to any third party in relation to the terms of the supplier’s rental agreement or any other documentation provided to you by the supplier at the time of pick up.
While we will make reasonable efforts to ensure we are representing only reputable suppliers, we make no warranty about the fitness or suitability of any third party (supplier) product or service and will not accept responsibility for the quality or fitness of any vehicle. If you encounter issues with the vehicle whilst on hire, you MUST report these issues directly to the relevant supplier at the earliest possible time. This will allow the supplier to remedy any issues and minimise any inconvenience to you. If you fail to report any vehicle issues during your rental, it is likely that compensation will not be offered. We welcome feedback from our customers on their experience with our suppliers. We may, at our discretion, provide you with reasonable assistance in resolving any dispute you may have with a supplier.
Our total liability to you in relation to your use of this website and the information contained on this website will not exceed the dollar amount of the deposit we have received from you in relation to your booking/rental. Refunds will not be made for bookings cancelled due to inclement weather. Again, we strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance. Your use of this website is governed by the laws of New Zealand and the jurisdiction of the New Zealand courts.
To make a booking you must complete our booking form which is easy to follow and secured with the latest encryption technology. Once we receive your form, we will, subject to availability, confirm your booking by emailing you a confirmation voucher and invoice. The deposit required to secure your vehicle (as shown on the secure booking page) will only be processed on your credit card when your booking is confirmed. Please note that a 2% credit card or debit card surcharge will be added when your payment is processed.
A booking is confirmed when you have been emailed a confirmation voucher and at this stage the deposit is processed on your card and becomes non-refundable and any cancellation fees stated in the supplier's terms apply. Upon receipt of your confirmation, please check your details carefully and notify us immediately if there are any incorrect details, as it may not be possible to make changes at a later date.
If you are booking via phone, please make sure you have read the terms and conditions of the vehicle you wish to rent first. Our reservations consultant will ask you if you have read the terms and agree to them before proceeding. The onus is always on the renter to ensure they make themselves fully aware of the terms displayed on our website.
In booking on this website you acknowledge that we disclose your information to your selected Supplier in order to provide the requested rental services.
Please note that some suppliers treat an amendment as a new booking and apply the rate current at the time the amendment is made to recalculate the entire booking amount (not just the days changed). If the rental period is increased, an additional deposit may be required. If the rental period is shortened which results in a reduction of the rental charges, the deposit amount will remain unchanged, and the difference between the original and revised deposit is forfeited (it cannot be used towards remaining rental charges). To request a change to a confirmed booking, please use the alterations request link on your confirmation. Any alterations are subject to availability and the approval of the supplier. In addition to the alteration policy of the supplier stated in their terms, the following charges will apply:
Motorhome rental alterations (all charges stated in local currency): 25.00
The alteration fee will not be charged if your alteration request is not possible.
Vehicle Capacity and fitness to drive
Under no circumstances are you permitted to carry more passengers than the vehicle you rent is legally registered to carry, and if you do your insurance may be invalidated. The number of seatbelts (and passengers) is indicated next to each vehicle on this website. Luggage capacity where shown is an indication only and we will not be responsible should you be unable to fit your entire luggage into a vehicle. It is your responsibility to choose a journey that is within your capabilities. A vehicle supplier can refuse to rent a vehicle to any person who is in their opinion unfit to drive or does not meet eligibility requirements. In such circumstances we will have no further liability to you.
We are committed to providing a quality service and aim for complete customer satisfaction. In the event of cancellation, any refunds or penalties are detailed in the terms and conditions of your selected vehicle that you are asked to read and accept at time of booking. In the event you are unsatisfied with our service, please contact us within 48 hours of placing your booking or request and we will work to resolve any issues and determine if compensation is due.
