Collision Damage Waiver

Collision damage waiver (also referred to as Super CDW) is an optional service that relieves the customer of responsibility for any damage to the vehicle. If declined, the customer will be responsible for any costs incurred.

Loss Damage Waiver

Renters may purchase loss damage waiver (LDW) that relieves them of all financial responsibility for loss or damage to the rental car as long as they comply with the terms of the rental agreement.

Personal accident insurance

Personal Accident Insurance covers the renter and passengers if they have an accident during the rental as a driver or passenger. It covers accidental death, some medical expenses and assistance and rescue.

Supplementary liability insurance / extended protection

The Supplemental Liability Insurance option covers the renter's liability to third parties, resulting from an automobile accident in a rental vehicle to a specified maximum value for each occurrence.

Theft protection

If the rental car is stolen, this will cover the cost of replacing it (or parts of it). Normally, however, the renter will have to pay an excess towards these costs.
