Check out our variety of extras and insurance options that you can book with any campervan from Happy Campers
0 Self-risk / deductible on all of our insurances for maximum protection and peace-of-mind. Also includes free services such as vehicle lockout, incorrect fueling, and dead battery assistance.
Take all available insurance in one package and get a better price.
Gravel Protection covers damages to the entire front of the vehicle (including the windshield, headlights, and hood) caused by gravel hitting the car. This type of damage can occur when gravel is thrown into the air by the tires of another vehicle.
A 12V/230V inverter (Europe) will allow you to charge your electronic devices using the 12V “cigarette lighter” socket in the car. Be sure to bring a converter for your plugs if they are not South African.
A camping chair can make your trip a little extra special. You can sit in the perfect spot and watch one of our beautiful sunsets or bundle up and gaze at the stars. Be sure to check out our camping table for rent, too.
Renting a camping table gives you more options for leisure time. Enjoy a meal at the table, play games, tell stories… whatever makes you HAPPY.
Would you like to make your trip more relaxing by having more than one driver? It’s only fair that you get to enjoy the views from the passenger seat a bit, too. Just bring a valid driver’s license for all drivers and you’re all set.
We welcome all adventurers, big and small. We have child seats of all sizes available for rent. Be sure to reserve one when you book your camper van and feel free to email us if you have any questions.
Our coffee press/travel mug combo is perfect for coffee-drinking adventures. You can make your coffee and keep it warm in the same container. We also offer conventional travel mugs if you don’t need the coffee press feature.
Make your adventure easier by renting a GPS from us and never getting lost.
We’re the only camper rental that includes cooking gas for up to 12 days (4-5 canisters). Not only do you save money but more importantly, you don’t have to spend time shopping for it when you run out during your trip.
A Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is mandatory in Iceland and we included it for free with every booking. This means that we waive the right to hold you fully liable for damages. Your maximum liability, or deductible, would be €2,500 (~$3,000), even if you total a €60,000 van.
Safety always comes first, so we include a fire extinguisher and first aid kit in all camper rentals.
The Super Collision Damage Waiver covers the same things as the CDW, but lowers the deductible to ZAR 5000,-
Protects you from liability in case the van or other included items get stolen. This only covers Happy Campers rental items, not personal items. If you do not have this insurance, you will have to pay ZAR 25 000,-
If you damage a tire so that it needs to be replaced, you are not responsible for the cost.
Cook up some delicious meals with a braai grid.
The fee includes:
1) R25 000 Refundable Deposit (Returned when the vehicle is returned and inspected for damage)
2) R450 per day Premium Package Insurance (mandatory)
which covers the cost of preparing your campervan to cross the borders of South Africa into Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique.
Are you renting for a long time or planning on doing a lot of cooking? Then you might want to pick up an extra gas canister for your stove, in addition to the 4 canisters that are included in the rental price.
Renting a gazebo gives you more options for the pleasure time. Our collapsible gazebo is the perfect size to set up outside with our camping chairs or tables. Enjoy a meal under the gazebo, play games, tell stories… whatever makes you happy.
