Collision Damage Waiver

CarHireExcess.com offers Collision Damage Waiver up to $100,000.
What is Collision Damage Waiver?

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is included in the Annual or Daily Worldwide Car Hire Excess Insurance policy and is applicable when travelling around the USA and Canada, as well as the Caribbean, South and Central America. It covers losses incurred deriving from damage to a rental vehicle caused by fire, vandalism, accident or volcanic ash cloud. It also provides cover for theft, even unrecoverable theft, which is sometimes called Loss Damage Waiver (LDW).

Do I Need Collision Damage Waiver?

Car hire insurance is sometimes dispensable in some states of the USA and Canada, as well as other countries in North, Central and South America as it's not required by law. However, it's beneficial to have appropriate Collision Damage Waiver cover in place. Otherwise, in case you get involved in a car accident, you will still be responsible for costly bills for certain damages and losses if the unexpected happens.

What does Collision Damage Waiver cover?

CarHireExcess.com provides cover up to the lowest of the following:

  • $100,000 (or the equivalent in local currency)
  • The value of the rental vehicle
  • The value of claim
  • Legal costs incurred with the defence of any claim (up to a limit)

Terms and conditions apply. Check the policy documents for full details.

Get a Worldwide policy with CDW included as standard from €3.99 per day* or €58.99 per annum.

*Per day based on 3 Day Cover


This works. I use them every trip. I claimed back once for a €90 charge for a scratch on an alloy. I'm sure the alloy was fixed with the money and presented to the next customer in tip top condition, what a racket! CarHireExcess, I recommend. 5 stars.
