Car rental insurance varies widely, so please review the information below prior to making your reservation. Regulations of the country where you rent the car will be in effect for the duration of your rental.
All our car rental rates include fire and third party liability insurance. Our inclusive rates also provide collision and theft coverage at an advance purchase discount. You may elect to decline collision and theft coverage. If you plan to take advantage of coverage offered by your credit card, please contact your card issuer directly for details. Specific insurance information for your reservation will be printed on your confirmation voucher.
The following guidelines apply to rentals commencing in Germany.
Fire and third party liability insurance is mandatory and is included in all rentals. Third party liability insurance offers US$6,480,000 in case of injury or death to people outside of the rental car and unlimited coverage for property damage outside the rental car. Fire insurance is also included in the rate.
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and theft protection are included in our inclusive rates at a discount. CDW, if purchased at the rental counter, costs approximately US$30 – US$42 per day. Theft protection, if purchased at the rental counter, costs approximately US$9 - US$14 per day. CDW and theft coverage reduce the deductible (responsibility of the client) to US$425 - US$1,500. Personal Accident Insurance (PAI) is available at the rental counter for approximately US$5 - US$9 per day. Super CDW may be offered locally to reduce the deductible as low as zero. Optional insurance coverage is available with select suppliers only, rates subject to change without notice.
