The last thing you want to worry about while on vacation is having to pay for the cost of a dent or minor scratches left on your rental vehicle. If you’re not careful, minor damage such as these could add up. Rental car insurance helps cover the cost of such incidents and protects you from a potentially massive bill at the end of your trip.
At the rental desk or rental car depot, insurance is offered at an additional cost. At RentalCover.com, we offer insurance products that cover you for a range of situations such as damage to your roof, underbody, scratches and more. And the best part? We offer $0 deductible.
For only a few extra dollars a day you can get vehicle damage coverage with RentalCover.com. When you rent a car in most countries, the default insurance you’re offered will have an extremely high deductible, often in the thousands. You can be liable for this amount if any damage is done to the car (or they report that damage has been done to the car).
Some of the most popular rental car insurance companies can offer additional insurance anywhere between $19-$37 per day. Depending on the company, the coverage can vary wildly, often excluding important things like keys, windscreens, tires and underbody damage The standalone rental car insurance that we offer at RentalCover.com gives you much greater coverage for around $7-16 per day and has no excess depending on the country you are in.
Purchasing rental car insurance is optional, however in the event of something going wrong, the cost of repairs might leave you reaching into your pocket. In such cases, it pays to spend money upfront on CDW. This product effectively keeps the cost of damage to a manageable amount.
When you buy a policy from us, you pay a small non-refundable fee in exchange for us taking a big risk off your shoulders, and although luck is good, having insurance is better.
RentalCover.com policies insure you against the damage, such as:

CDW is an optional service sold by car rental companies that protects you in case you’re in an accident or any event that causes damage to your car rental. CDW may or may not include a deductible - the policy offered to US residents on RentalCover.com does not have a deductible! Typically, if you rent a car in the United States, your CDW covers you for all the costs related to damages to your car rental whereas if you’re traveling elsewhere, chances are that your CDW has a deductible, which may be up to a few thousand dollars.
Please keep in mind that CDW only covers car rental damage or theft. It does not cover you for damage to another vehicle or if the accident results in injuries.
