Collision Damage Waiver:

All our vehicles are fully insured, but drivers not purchasing one of our CDW options are liable for a minimum of US$1,750.00 in the event of an accident.  To reduce this liability, or to eliminate it completely, we offer 3 options of CDW (see below).  It must be noted that CDW is NOT insurance.  Vehicle tyres, upholstery, radios and electronic equipment are not covered by CDW.

BASIC CDW: Current daily rate US$11.75 or weekly US$58.75 reduces driver liability to US$750.00

STANDARD CDW: Current daily rate US$14.69 or weekly US$73/$45 reduces driver liability to US$500.00.
