Damage Waiver (DW) reduces the liability of the renter in the event of damage to or theft of the vehicle. If DW is not included in the reservation, the renter has full liability for the vehicle. DW is available for purchase and reduces the applicable excess to zero for all cars and SUVs. For Small Cargo Vans the excess can be reduced to 250 EUR, for Medium and Intermediate Cargo Vans to 300 EUR and for Luton Cargo Vans with Tail Lift to 350 EUR.
If included in the reservation, the excess amount is 1500 EUR for Mini, Economy, Compact and Intermediate Cars and Compact SUVs. Standard vehicles, Minivans with up to 7 seats and all other SUVs have an excess of 2500 EUR. Elite, Premium and Luxury vehicles and 9-seater Passenger Vans have an excess of 3500 EUR.
Small Cargo Vans have an excess of 1500 EUR, Medium and Intermediate Cargo Vans 2500 EUR and Luton Cargo Vans with Tail Lift 3500 EUR.
Before purchasing DW it is advised to determine, if a personal coverage is adequate to cover damage, theft, loss of revenue, administration fees, diminishment of value, and any towing, storage or impound fees. If DW is declined, the renter will be required to pay these charges and seek compensation through their carrier of personal coverage. DW is not insurance.
