6. PREPAID CAR INSURANCE: Third-party insurance is included. However, this means that in the event of an accident, the other car is covered. Yours is not. To cover this eventuality, we recommend that you purchase additional CDW insurance (Collision). You should prepay your car insurance. It is cheaper here. Please see CDW rates in the car chart below. There is a deductible of $1500-$2800 per rental. If you do not purchase insurance, you may be required to leave a credit card for the value of your car upon arrival. You may purchase Super CDW on arrival which significantly reduces the deductible. However, we do NOT recommend this.

usually does not cover the cost of replacing each day's rental income, if the
rental car you damaged (or the car is stolen while you are responsible for the
car) prevents that car from being hired while it is in repair, to cover the
lost revenue the company has while a car in their fleet is not available for
Renters are responsible for tires that have been damaged due to neglect, carelessness or in an accident during rental. This includes punctures, tires that have been run flat and tires with sidewall cuts and bulges. Make sure you check your tires at the time of rental!

You can have CDW coverage offered "free" by your credit card company but it often may only cover property damage (and that after a deductible), but it may not cover the loss of rental revenue for the company until the rental car is back in the fleet due to down time caused by whatever reason, damage or theft.|
