Insurances and Coverages

• Motor Liability Insurance
Basic coverage for Civil Liability and third-party property damage, within the limits established by insurance laws, is included in the rates.

• Loss Damage Waiver (LDW)
Coverage without deductible that partially releases the client from financial responsibility for loss, damage or theft of the rental vehicle. Coverage does not cover loss or theft of accessories.
With LDW, the renter will be responsible for a deductible of USD 500.00. The renter will be responsible for the full cost of the damage if the car is driven in violation of the rental agreement, is abused or driven recklessly or while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Renter will be fully responsible for value of car before theft if such event occurs due to customer's negligence (unable to produce carkeys, not securing doors, etc). Some rates include this coverage.
