Damage Waiver (DW) reduces the liability of the renter in the event of damage or theft of the vehicle. If DW is not included in the reservation, the renter has full liability for the vehicle. DW is available for purchase and reduces the applicable excess. If included in the reservation, the excess amount is 1600 EUR for Mini and Economy cars and Small Vans. For all other vehicles an excess of 2500 EUR applies. Before purchasing DW it is advised to determine, if a personal coverage is adequate to cover damage, theft, loss of revenue, administration fees, diminishment of value, and any towing, storage or impound fees. If DW is declined, the renter will be required to pay these charges and seek compensation through their carrier of personal coverage. DW is not insurance.
