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 at the rental counter and reduces the applicable excess to zero.
If included in the reservation, the excess amount is 1500€ for all vehicles with the exception of People Carriers, Compact Elite, Premium and Luxury vehicles which have an excess of 2500€. Economy and Compact Vans have an excess of 1500€ and all larger Vans have a 2500€ excess.
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.
