Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)
Purchase of CDW is optional and reduces the customer's financial responsibility for damage to the vehicle. The customer's responsibility in case of accident or theft is a minimum of 1,800 USD, not to exceed 4,000 USD, in addition to a security deposit (see Security Deposit amounts below for amount). If the value of damages is less than the deductible the customer will pay for the vehicle repair. Theft, vandalism or damage to parts and accessories are not covered.
If CDW is declined, renter is fully responsible for loss or damage - paying true market value of the rented vehicle, including but not limited to towing, storage, impound, loss of use and administrative fees subject to the terms and conditions of the rental agreement and applicable laws.
AMAS: Asset Monitoring Activation Surcharge:
At the time of rental, the rental agreement will automatically be charged the AMAS Surcharge for rental transactions where CDW/LDW is declined.
The cost for AMAS varies from $8.00 USD per day to $12.00 USD per day, depending on car group.
Security Deposit Amounts
Security deposit amounts will be stated per each car category on the car selection. At the end of the rental, if there are no extra charges to make (due to possible damage and or other additional services), the location will release the funds immediately. Due to bank processing times, this could be delayed a couple of days, but we find that typically customers have their refund within 5 to 10 business days.

SLI will be 800 USD, CDW is accepted 600 USD, CDW is declined 2,000 USD Economy Car, Compact Car, Intermediate, Standard, Full Size
