What is included ?

For individuals or parties of two we use a large saloon (sedan). For three to four people a medium sized People Carrier (Mini-Van) or for four to seven people a large People Carrier. All vehicles have air-conditioning. All costs relating to the vehicle are included – fuel, insurance, etc. All rates quoted relate to the vehicle with driver/guide – not per person.

The services of your driver/guide throughout, and where relevant, there overnight expenses are included in any quote. You are not obliged to cover any other costs in relation to your driver/guide, i.e. lunch, etc. On extended trips this service will  generally be available to you for up to nine hours per day (not hard and fast), and when required your driver/guide will stay overnight close to your chosen accommodation.

The vehicle is fully insured for hire and reward through Royal Sun Alliance, and we carry additional public liability insurance provided by Towergate Underwriting. We will be happy to provide evidence of this insurance cover on request.
