Rental Terms, Conditions & Indemnity

The hirer must be in possession of a valid motorcycle license, acceptable by South African authorities, for the duration of the rental period. Please carry your license at all times.

The hirer is covered by CTVR’s Public Indemnity Insurance for any harm you should cause, accrue, or be caused to a third party. The hirer is NOT covered by CTVR’s insurance for any personal injury, theft, or damage to our Vespas unless comprehensive insurance is taken.
 CTVR does not accept responsibility for any damages you may cause to yourself or other vehicles.

The rental of each scooter is subject to an R8000.00 deposit, either by credit card or cash, which is fully refundable on the return of the Vespa and helmet(s) in the same condition as received by the hirer.
 We will require a copy of a valid credit card in addition.

Loss or Damage

The hirer shall be responsible for any loss or damage incurred to the Vespa, whether by accident or theft. This assessed loss shall be offset by any deposit held by CTVR, under this agreement, and the balance shall be payable to the hirer on the return of the Vespa. Should the hirer select CTVR’s Fully Comprehensive Insurance (R75 p/day), he/she will only be responsible for R4500.00 as the first amount payable (excess) should any damage to the Vespa be incurred and R8000 as the first amount payable (excess) in the case of theft.

The Vespa must be parked off-street overnight for theft under CTVR’s Fully Comprehensive Insurance Coverage. Furthermore, a police case number is required should the hirer require CTVR to claim from insurance. The hirer will be liable for the complete loss should a police case number not be reported correctly, nor the case number supplied.

Daily rental charges and surcharges

All daily rental charges exclude petrol. Vespas are delivered full and the hirer shall return the Vespa full. If the Vespa is not filled on return, the hirer shall be charged R300.
