What are the collision damage waiver options?
CDW IS NOT INSURANCE. THE PURCHASE OF CDW IS OPTIONAL AND NOT REQUIRED IN ORDER TO RENT A VEHICLE.
Renter may purchase optional CDW from Owner for an additional fee. If Renter purchases CDW, Owner agrees, subject to the actions that invalidate CDW listed below, to contractually waive Renter's responsibility for all or part of the cost of damage to, loss or theft of, Vehicle or any part or accessory and related costs regardless of fault or negligence, depending on the CDW plan chosen. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary and unless prohibited by law, CDW DOES NOT PROVIDE PROTECTION FOR LOST KEYS, KEY FOBS, TRANSPONDERS OR OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES. CDW does not apply to damage occurring in Mexico. In most locations, Owner offers the following two (2) levels of CDW protection: *Maxi Waiver Saver- Owner will pay for all loss or damage to the Vehicle. *Waiver Saver 3000- Owner will pay the first $3,000 of loss or damage. Renter will pay for all loss or damage over $3,000. When deciding whether or not to purchase CDW, you may wish to check with your insurance representative or credit card company to determine whether, in the event of damage to, or theft of, Vehicle, you have coverage or protection for such damage or theft and the amount of your deductible or out-of-pocket risk.

A. IF VEHICLE IS DAMAGED WHEN USED OR DRIVEN: (1) BY ANY PERSON OTHER THAN RENTER OR AAD(S) WITHOUT OWNERS PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT; (2) BY ANY PERSON IF THERE IS REASONABLE EVIDENCE THE DRIVER WAS IMPAIRED BY THE USE OF ALCOHOL, NARCOTICS, INTOXICANTS, OR DRUGS, USED WITH OR WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION; (3) BY ANY PERSON COMMITTING A FELONY OR OTHERWISE ENGAGED IN A CRIMINAL ACT; (4) IN A RACE OR SPEED CONTEST; (5) TO TOW OR PUSH ANYTHING; (6) OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA; (7) UNDER AUTHORITY OF ANY LICENSE THAT IS SUSPENDED, REVOKED, INVALID OR DOES NOT BELONG TO THE DRIVER; (8) TO TRANSPORT PERSONS OR PROPERTY FOR HIRE; (9) IN A WANTON OR RECKLESS MANNER OR IF VEHICLE IS DELIBERATELY DAMAGED; (10) ON AN UNPAVED ROAD OR OFF ROAD; (11) TO TRANSPORT EXPLOSIVES, CHEMICALS, CORROSIVES OR OTHER HAZARDOUS MATERIALS OR POLLUTANTS OF ANY KIND; OR
