Does A Collision Damage Waiver Have To Cover The Full Rental Period?

by Steve Dasseos on April 3, 2008

I am trying to find a Collision Damage Waiver for a UK car rental. The rental’s CDW is covered for the first 42 days of the trip through an expanded coverage option with Amex; however, the trip is for 49 days, so there is a period of 7 days with no CDW coverage. Is it possible to get coverage for only that period of time? Thanks for your help, Rachel

No, our Collision Damage Waiver plan only covers the entire rental period. And as far as I know, all other CDW plans have the same rules. Your only choice is to return the car after 42 days & rent it as a new rental for the other 7 days. That way you could insure your rental car because you’d be covering the entire rental period.
