If you would like to rent the car with a lower than standard excess, an additional daily fee will be calculated.
For example, it is possible to reduce the standard excess with 50% or to have the minimum excess (N$1,500.-).
The exact fees are depending on the vehicle of your choice and the number of passengers. It is for example possible to reduce the standard excess with 50% for a fee of about Euro 10.- per day. It is also possible to have the minimum excess for an extra daily fee of about Euro 33.-. The exact details are mentioned in the itinerary.
