CAR HIRE EXCESS INSURANCE
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is a term used to describe protection that you can buy to reduce or remove charges payable by you if your hire car is damaged.
Although most car hire companies sell CDW, it is usually much more expensive than Bettersafe's CDW. It may also be more limited than the Bettersafe cover.
Bettersafe's CDW provides cover for any amount you become liable for over and above the car hire company's own policy up to US $100,000 CDW for damage to the rental vehicle and US $1,000,000 SLI for third party bodily injury and damage to material property.
This policy also covers you for the insurance excess, which is the amount you are responsible to pay towards repair costs if the rental vehicle suffers any damage.
The Bettersafe Collision Damage Waiver is combined with Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI) which covers third party injury or damage to third party property.
There are some places in the world that cannot be covered by a Bettersafe CDW & SLI policy including but not necessarily exclusive to Afghanistan, Belarus, Cuba, Congo, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Liberia, North Korea, Myanmar, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria and Zimbabwe.
