The university only provides insurance cover for vehicles rented from Bidvest Car Rental when:
the car will be used for official university business;
designated driver/s are all university staff members.
Bidvest Car Rental may be used to rent cars for official visitors to the university, although insurance cover must be taken out using Bidvest's Car Rental insurance.
The university will not take responsibility for vehicle losses or damages caused by visitors, and departments should ensure that the correct procedure is followed when renting vehicles on behalf of visitors. Failure to do so may result in the department concerned being liable for any losses or damages.
Note: all traffic fines incurred while on university business are for the driver's own personal account.
