You are over the limit if you have a breath al­co­hol con­tent of 0.24mg per 1 000ml, or a blood al­co­hol limit of 0.05g per 100ml. This is equal to two-thirds of a beer or spirit cooler with 5% al­co­hol vol­ume.

If you drink wine, 75ml of red or white wine per hour with an al­co­hol vol­ume of 12% to 14% is ac­cept­able. Whisky and brandy con­nois­seurs can drink up to one 25ml tot of al­co­hol an hour.

In Jo­han­nes­burg, a R320 fee in­cludes a 30% dis­count. It also cov­ers 50km, and ad­di­tional dis­tances are charged at R9/km. This fare is paid di­rectly to Europ As­sis­tance.

In all other ar­eas, a fee of R395 in­cludes a 20% dis­count. Up to five ad­di­tional pas­sen­gers can be trans­ported to the same point at no ad­di­tional cost.

Book­ings can be ar­ranged be­tween 8am and 2am, and must be ar­ranged at least 45 min­utes in ad­vance. Ser­vices for pub­lic hol­i­days must be booked by 5pm the day be­fore the pub­lic hol­i­day.

At the spec­i­fied time and lo­ca­tion, the call cen­tre will no­tify you that the driver has ar­rived, at which time you will have 15 min­utes to meet the driver.

If you do not meet the driver within 15 min­utes, the call cen­tre will no­tify you that the driver will be leav­ing and the trip will be can­celled. If you can­cel your re­quest two hours be­fore the booked col­lec­tion time, there are no con­se­quences, but if you can­cel your re­quest an hour be­fore the booked col­lec­tion time, you for­feit one of your trips for the year.

The ser­vice is avail­able within a 50km ra­dius of city cen­tres in Jo­han­nes­burg, Pre­to­ria, Nel­spruit, Polok­wane, Dur­ban, East Lon­don, Ge­orge, Cape Town and Bloem­fontein.

MiWay: If your car is in­sured with MiWay, and you have the MiHelp op­tion en­abled, you can book six free trips a year with WeDrive. Book­ings for WeDrive are only al­lowed if the trip is in your in­sured car and you, as the pol­i­cy­holder or reg­u­lar driver, are present. MiHelp re­quires you to en­sure that all calls for col­lec­tion are made be­fore 1am. The ear­li­est pickup will be done at 5.30am and the last will be at 3am.

Dur­ing peak times, you are re­quired to make a book­ing at least 48 hours in ad­vance. Peak times in­clude over week­ends, on pub­lic hol­i­days (the night be­fore and on the day) and, in some in­stances, ma­jor pub­lic events that hap­pen within the cov­ered ar­eas.

The WeDrive ser­vice is avail­able in Jo­han­nes­burg, Pre­to­ria, Cape Town, Dur­ban, Port El­iz­a­beth, East Lon­don and Ge­orge, sub­ject to avail­abil­ity of WeDrive teams.

DialDirect: Des­ig­nated Driver As­sist al­lows you to en­joy the free­dom of a night out at a cost of R49 a month, which in­cludes two trips a month. The first 50km is cov­ered for free and ad­di­tional kilo­me­tres are charged at R9/km. Two pas­sen­gers may join the pol­i­cy­holder if col­lected and dropped off at the same points.

Bud­get In­surance of­fers you the Des­ig­nated Driver As­sist with the same ben­e­fits and con­di­tions as the DialDirect of­fer­ing for R30 a month.
