Understanding Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) for Your Next Vehicle Hire

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) for your vehicle hire.

**What is CDW?**

Collision Damage Waiver, or CDW, is an optional service we offer to give you peace of mind while on the road. It’s not exactly insurance (You are already insured), but it acts a lot like it. Here’s the gist: for just £10 per day, CDW reduces your financial liability in case of damage to the vehicle.

**How Does it Work?**

Think of CDW as a shield. Our standard vehicle hire comes with an insurance excess of £250. This means in the event of damage, you’re responsible for costs up to £250. But, if you opt for CDW, this excess drops to zero! Yes, you read that right – £0!

**What’s the Catch?**

Well, we believe in transparency, so here it is. While CDW covers most parts of the vehicle, there are a couple of exceptions – door mirrors and windscreens. Why? These parts are more prone to damage and often require full replacement.

**Why Consider CDW?**

1. **Peace of Mind**: With CDW, you can drive with an extra layer of comfort, knowing that an accidental scratch won’t scratch your wallet.
2. **Simplicity**: Accidents happen. With CDW, the post-incident process is smoother and less stressful.
3. **Cost-Effective**: For just £10 a day, you’re saving yourself from potential hefty costs.

**Is CDW Right for You?**

This depends on your comfort level. Even if you consider yourself a highly competent driver you cannot know what other people on the road are going to do. Also, when the vehicle is parked damage can occur.

Remember, our goal is to make your vehicle hire experience as enjoyable and hassle-free as possible. Whether you choose CDW or not, we’re here to support you in any way we can.
