Terms and Conditions

The hirer has requested, and R2D has agreed, that R2D will provide the Vehicle to the hirer under the terms of the Agreement.

The hirer has a need for a replacement vehicle. R2D will make the Vehicle available to the hirer for the Hire Period. On expiry of the Hire Period the hirer will be obliged to return the Vehicle to R2D forthwith.

R2D agrees to provide the Vehicle to the hirer for the Hire Period as shown on R2D's Tax Invoice at the contract rate set out in the RA, on credit for the Credit Period.

R2D will use its best endeavours during the Credit Period to recover the Hire Charges from the TP. On condition that the hirer fulfils their obligations under the Agreement and Authority to Act, the hirer will be released from liability for the Hire Charges except for the Additional Charges as defined for which the hirer shall remain liable.

The hirer authorises R2D, its nominated agents, representatives and solicitors to bank relevant cheques made payable to the hirer into their or R2D's nominated Trust Account. The hirer irrevocably appoints R2D (and/or its nominated Debt Recovery Agent) as the hirer's agent, representative and attorney, to recover the Hire Charges by whatever means including, in R2D's absolute discretion, the commencement and carrying-on of legal proceedings in the name of the hirer. R2D may retain and apply all such recovered Hire Charges and recovery costs (in whole or in part) to the Hire Charges and Recovery Costs. The hirer understands and accepts that R2D shall appoint and give instructions on behalf of the hirer to legal advisers in respect of the recovery process.

The hirer warrants to R2D that he or she has not relied on any promise, representation, inducement or conduct material to the entry by the hirer into the Agreement or the RA other than as expressly set out in the Agreement with respect to any aspect of the hire, the Hire Charges or recovery process, and is aware that R2D is relying on this warranty in agreeing to provide a hire car to the hirer on credit and in agreeing to the obligations in the Agreement and in committing to the recovery process.

As at the date of the Agreement, the Hire Charges are estimated because the hirer is unable to advise the duration of the repairs to or the replacement of the Damaged Vehicle. The final Hire Charges will not be known until expiry of the Hire Period.

If you are registered for GST and may claim an Input Tax Credit for the GST component of the Hire Charges then you must pay the GST to R2D and then claim it back in your next GST Return.

Obligations & Termination

The hirer is obliged to do the following:

  1. The hirer must act in the best interests of R2D;
  2. The hirer must not delay or hold up the timely recovery of the Hire Charges from the TP;
  3. The hirer must promptly provide all documents reasonably required by the TP;
  4. The hirer must be open and frank with R2D in anyway;
  5. The hirer must not breach any of the terms of the Agreement;
  6. The hirer must not release or purport to release, by signing a form of release or otherwise, the TP from any of the hirer's rights in respect to the accident;
  7. The hirer must provide all reasonable assistance to R2D in respect to the implementation and conduct of the recovery process which the hirer acknowledges may require the hirer to provide statements, documents, and appear in court as a witness; and
  8. The hirer must promptly inform R2D when the repairs to the Damaged Vehicle are complete or when the hirer has received notice of a total loss settlement. 


If in the reasonable opinion of R2D the hirer is in breach of any of these obligations, R2D may at any time terminate the Agreement.
R2D may also terminate the Agreement at any time if R2D is of the reasonable opinion that:

i. The hirer has made any admission of liability in respect to the accident; or

j. The Hire Charges will not be fully recoverable from the TP.

If the Agreement is terminated for any of the reasons stated in points (a) to (g) or (i) above, then the Hire Charges, the Additional Charges and the Recovery Costs will become immediately due and payable, by the hirer, to R2D. If the Agreement is terminated for the reason stated in point (h), then the Hire Charges for any day or days after the repairs were completed or after the hirer received notification of a total loss settlement, the Additional Charges and the Recovery Costs will become immediately due and payable, by the hirer, to R2D.
