Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) reduces the liability of the renter in the event of damage to the bodywork, theft or attempted theft of the vehicle. If CDW is not included in the reservation, the renter has liability for up to the full market value of the vehicle. If not included in the booking, CDW is an optional coverage available for purchase.

If included in the reservation or purchased, the excess amount is 1000 EUR for all car classes. Excess will be charged every time a vehicle is damaged/stolen.

Before purchasing CDW it is advised to determine if personal coverage is adequate to cover damage, theft, loss of revenue, administration fees, diminishment of value, and any towing, storage or impound fees. If CDW is declined, the renter will be required to pay these charges and to seek compensation through their carrier of personal coverage. The Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is not insurance.
