Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) is Optional
Purchase of LDW reduces the customer liability depending on car group rented. When purchased the amounts will be lowered in the event of an accident, theft or if the Budget vehicle is turned over. The amounts are as follows:
Counter Sale Only
Deductible Reduction Option (DRO) - Check with location for details and cost.
Theft Protection (TP) is included in LDW.
Note: The liability amount will be held on the charge card. A charge card hold will apply whether LDW is accepted or declined. The charge card hold will not cover car turnover.
If you require additional insurance coverage you may purchase locally to reduce/remove the insurance excess. Just ask at the Avis rental desk when you collect your car.
Global insurance coverages are always subject to change. Please verify at time of rental.

The customer must place the Reservation at least 7 working days prior to the pick-up date. When doing so, they must request the authorization to cross borders into the chosen country. These reservations are not automatically confirmed, since our locations must check and acknowledge that the requested border crossing can be honored, therefore if said authorization cannot be granted, the car will be rented without the border crossing permit. If the request is confirmed, the customer must provide their credit card information (number, expiration date, security code) to secure the permit.
Cross border fees will be paid at the moment of pick up.
Should the customer cancel the Reservation less than 48 working hours prior to the pick-up date and time, an administrative fee will be charged to their credit card, of the same amount as the cross border fee.
