Yes, you cannot claim deductions against the travel allowance unless you keep a detailed logbook.

Not sure I completely understand. It's a fixed travel allowance that is paid out each month and is taxed at 80% there are no further deductions made against this.
Does this still require a detailed logbook?

When you complete your ITR12income tax return you can enter in actual expenses covered by yourself for the car as well as the total mileage driven including business and personal travel. In order to do this though, you must have kept a full logbook detailing all travels. SARS then uses a formula to calculate which portion of all these expenses and travel are business expenses and reduces the taxable portion of your travel allowance accordingly resulting in less tax paid.
