Clutch replacement or damage due to client negligence is not covered with any of the insurance options. A handling fee of R500.00 is charged on all accident damages irrespective of the insurance option taken.
KEA Campers offer the following two (2) options to reduce or waive the Standard Excess:
Excess Reduction 1
Excess Reduction 1 at R 150.00 per day will reduce the excess for any damage to either vehicle or third party property to a maximum of R 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 tyres. The bond of R 20,000.00 can be paid by traveller's cheque or credit card. Should the bond be paid by credit card the amount will be authorized with the bank, and will not be available until the return of the vehicle to the agreed location, on the agreed date, with no damage incurred to the KEA Campers vehicle or third party property and the toilet cassette has been emptied and no items are lost or damaged.
In case of any damage to the KEA Campers vehicle or third party property a second bond will be collected to cover the excess for any subsequent damage.
Excess Reduction 2
Excess Reduction 2 at R 300.00 per day will waive the excess for any vehicle and third party property damage and the cost of replacing or repairing of windscreens, Max 1 tyre replacement, radio theft and recovery costs. A security deposit of R 1250.00 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.

- If the hirer requires a replacement vehicle to be delivered, then these charges will be for the hirers account.

- If the hirer is unable to take a replacement vehicle, no refunds for early termination of the contract will be considered.
- No refund of rental days lost will be considered during the period in which a replacement vehicle is being replaced.
- Should the hirer continue with a replacement vehicle then a new rental contract and insurance conditions will apply.
- Should a replacement be needed due to a fault on KEA’S side we will replace the vehicle within 24hrs in South Africa and 48 hrs outside of South Africa.
