Collision Damage Waiver with Theft Protection (CDWTP) reduces the excess in the event of damage or theft of the vehicle, when no responsible third party is identified. If CDWTP is not included in the reservation, it is available for purchase at the rental counter. If purchased or included in the reservation, the car categories Mini and Economy have a €1200 excess; Compact and Compact SUVs have a €1500 excess; for Intermediate SUVs, Premium, Luxury and Passenger Vans, the excess is €2000.
Before purchasing CDWTP, it is advisable to determine if the renter's personal coverage is adequate to cover damage, theft, loss of revenue, administration fees, diminishment of value, and any towing, storage or impound fees. If CDWTP is declined, the renter will be required to pay these charges and seek compensation through their carrier of personal coverage. CDWTP is not insurance.
