Waiver and Protection Options
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)
Purchase of CDW is optional. CDW reduces the renter’s financial responsibility (NWE) in case of damage due to collision or theft provided that the customer complies with the rental agreement terms and conditions. Damages due to vandalism, fire, partial theft and other occurrences clearly stated under the terms and conditions of the rental agreement are not covered and the customer is fully liable for the Avis vehicle in such events. Theft Protection Waiver is included in CDW.
If LDW is declined, the renter is fully responsible for the full value of the Avis vehicle, in addition to stolen accessories, repairs and loss of use during repairs. An additional credit card hold will apply.
Other coverages may be available at the counter, check upon arrival for information.

Public Liability covers injury or death to a third party (persons outside the Avis vehicle). Property Damage covers damage to property other than the Avis vehicle and the renter’s, driver’s or passenger’s property.

When PDW or CDW are declined and ALI is purchased, this protection will only cover Third Party Disability up to 10,000.00 USD.
