Standard Excess Policy

A standard excess of ZAR 45,000.00 applies in the event of any damage to either our vehicle or third party property. The renter will also be fully liable for replacing or repairing damaged windscreens and tires. A security bond of ZAR 45,000.00 will be taken on vehicle collection. The security bond can be paid by credit card. Should the bond be paid by credit card the amount will be blocked/placed on hold and will be returned subject to the return of the vehicle to the agreed location, on the agreed date, with no damage incurred to the THR SA vehicle or third party property and the toilet cassette has been emptied and no items are lost or damaged. THR SA are not responsible for any currency fluctuations that may occur in the above transaction.

THR SA offer the following two (2) options to reduce or waive the Standard Excess:

Excess Reduction 1

Excess Reduction 1 at ZAR 180.00 per day will reduce the excess for any damage to either vehicle or third party property to a maximum of ZAR 20,000.00. The renter, however, will be fully liable for replacing or repairing damaged windscreens, radio theft, Recovery costs, Replacement costs, clutch damage and tires. The bond of ZAR 20,000.00 can be paid by credit card. Should the bond be paid by credit card the amount will be withheld and returned to the client upon the return of the vehicle to the agreed location, on the agreed date, with no damage incurred to the THR SA or third party property and the toilet cassette has been emptied and no items are lost or damaged.

Excess Reduction 2

An excess Reduction rate at ZAR 280.00 per day will waive the excess for any vehicle and third party property damage and the cost of replacing or repairing of windscreens and tires (including repairs), radio theft, overhead damage and recovery costs. A security deposit of ZAR 2,500.00 is payable at the time of pickup to ensure that the vehicle is returned to the agreed location, on the agreed date in clean condition and with the toilet cassette and waste water tank has been emptied and no items are lost or damaged.

Clutch replacement or damage due to client negligence is not covered with any of the waiver options. THR SA allows an allowance of up to three days after vehicle collection whereafter the costs are the responsibility of the hirer.

Claim Handling Fee

A handling fee of ZAR 500.00 is charged on all claims irrespective of the waiver option taken.


All vehicles are supplied with equipment (unless otherwise agreed upon). Our waiver options do not cover any equipment supplied to you. Any loss or damage to the equipment including items such as fridges, compressors, tents etc. will be charged to your credit card.


The renter is fully liable for any damage to the THR SA vehicle or third party property if:

  • The terms of the rental contract are breached.
  • Damages sustained whilst the renter/driver is in breach of any traffic laws or ordinances. • Damage to the vehicle which is caused by careless, willful or reckless driving.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Driving on restricted roads.

Please Note: A replacement vehicle will only be dispatched once payment of all damages / recovery costs to the first vehicle is made. THR SA reserves the right to withhold a replacement vehicle; this does not entitle the client to any claims against THR SA.


By law all accidents must be reported to THR SA and the Local Police within 24 hours. Failing to report accidents may void all excess reduction and the Hirer becomes fully liable for all costs.

  • If the hirer requires a replacement vehicle to be delivered, then these charges will be for the hirers account.
  • The hirer is responsible for the recovery of the damaged vehicle to the original rental branch depending on the excess option taken.
  • If the hirer is unable to take a replacement vehicle, no refunds for early termination of the contract will be considered.
  • Should the hirer continue with a replacement vehicle then a new rental contract and Standard excess options will apply.
  • Should a replacement be needed due to a fault on THR SA’s side we will replace the vehicle within 24 hours in South Africa and 48 hrs outside of South Africa.
