Reduce the stress and financial worry of paying the higher insurance liability if you are involved in a collision. Our CDW cover reduces your liability if you have a collision whilst driving a hire vehicle, or damage that is caused to the vehicle whilst parked or unattended. Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) reduces the excess payable by the hirer in the event that the hired vehicle has been involved in a collision. This is a contractual waiver that must be taken at the start of the rental period rather than an insurance product. Typically, this will reduce the excess from between £1000-£1500 down to the deposit amount (£300 – £500). This depends on endorsements, driving experience, type of vehicle being hire and the intended use of the vehicle.
Our cover also removes the liability for LOU (Loss of use) following after a accident whereby you can be liable for up to two weeks LOU while the vehicle is in for repairs. CDW reduces this to zero.
The CDW option will be available during the checkout process.
