Insurances and Coverages

Though OPTIONAL, this coverage for damage to the vehicle is included in the rates posted on this website. In the case of damages to the vehicle, the customer is liable for the full amount of the Avis vehicle if Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is not taken. If CDW is purchased, the renter's responsibility (deductible or liability) is reduced to an amount ranging between EUR 750.00 and EUR 1,250.00 according to the car group rented, in the case of an accident or damage to the car.

• Theft Protection (TP)

• Super CDW-TP
The client has the possibility of eliminating the deductible of the CDW - TP coverages, by purchasing Super CDW - TP at the time of the opening of the contract. Some rates include this coverage. Please ask for further information at the Avis rental location at time of pick-up.

• PAI - Personal Accident Insurance
Avis PAI covers medical assistance and expenses in case of illness and/or accident, and a compensation for death or permanent disability of the renter and occupants of the Avis vehicle.
