Damage and/or Loss to the Vehicle
In the event of any loss or damage or loss to the vehicle, the renter will be responsible for the full value of the vehicle. However, the following options are available to reduce his/her liability:
- Option 1: Collision Damage Waiver (C.D.W.)
In order to reduce his/her liability in the event of loss or damage to the rented vehicle (any single event), the renter may purchase the Collision Damage Waiver (C.D.W.). The liability amount, along with the rental amount, is normally guaranteed by a major credit card. Please see the table below for cost and liability details.
- Option 2: Loss Damage Waiver (L.D.W.)
The Loss Damage Waiver (L.D.W.) allows the renter to reduce his/her liability to zero in the event of loss or damage to the vehicle (any single event). L.D.W. is only applicable to rentals three (3) days and over. Please refer to the table below for the relevant prices.
- Option 3: Participating Credit Cards
If the renter uses a credit card that offers Insurance Coverage, he/she may decline the options outlined above and have the vehicle fully covered under the credit card’s insurance feature. The only credit cards offering coverage are some Gold and Platinum MasterCards issued in Canada, and the World MasterCard from the United States. Please verify with your credit card company. Our rental agents will also obtain confirmation at the time of rental.
Basic Third party liability is already covered under the quoted rates.
