CDW

-CDW
CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) is not insurance. It eliminates the renter and/or any authorized drivers from financial responsibility if the vehicle is involved in an accident. If the terms and conditions of the Rental Agreement are violated, CDW is void and the renter is fully responsible for all costs associated with the incident. If you decline CDW, you are responsible up to the full market value of the vehicle. CDW does not cover any third party`s or unauthorized driver’s. Theft, glass, tires, acts of God, and fees associated with the collection of the damages are not covered. Any incidents must be reported to local Police and a case number provided. Failure to do so will void CDW. CDW does not have a deductible. CDW cannot be purchased by underage renters, local renters, or those paying up front with debit cards. These renters must provide proof of full coverage insurance to rent a vehicle.

AFTERMARKET ACCESSORIES
Installation of any aftermarket accessories to a rental vehicle is prohibited and immediately voids CDW. This includes, but not limited to, snow chains and trailer hitches.

OTHER INSURANCE/CREDIT CARD COVERAGE
Online travel sites and Credit Cards offer their own version of CDW and/or Liability Coverage. If you choose to select one of these products, please bring confirmation or proof of coverage to show at the counter. Purchase of these products does not relieve you from primary responsibility of damage to the vehicle or any liability incurred. Any valid claims that are refused by the Insurance carrier will be your responsibility.

DECLINING COVERAGE
The renter will be solely responsible for the vehicle itself and any third party claims made against it. Please check with your insurance agent for more information regarding your policy coverage.
