Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI):  Provides the renter and authorized drivers with up to $1,000,000.00 combined single limit for third party liability claims. It is available for $19.99 USD plus tax per day.

Roadside Assistance: (RSA): It covers emergency towing, battery assistance, flat tire assistance, fuel and water delivery service, winching and lost key or lockout service. It is available for $2.99 USD plus tax per day.

Personal Accident Insurance / Personal Effects Coverage (PAI / PEI): It is offered at the time of rental for an additional daily charge of $2.99 USD plus tax per day. If accepted, the PAI contained in the policy provides renter and renter's passengers with accidental death, accident medical expenses and ambulance expense benefits. The PEI contained in the policy insures the personal effects of the renter, additional drivers, or any members of the renter's immediate family who permanently resides in the renter's household and who is traveling with the renter against risks of loss or damage. Benefits are payable in addition to any other insurance coverage the renter or passengers may have. PAI provides Accidental Death ($175,000 renter / $17,500 passenger), Accidental Medical Expense ($3,500) and Travel Assistance while the rentee is in, boarding or alighting the rental vehicle. PEI provides limited coverage from loss or damage to the rentee’s personal belongings caused by theft,damage or accident to your rental vehicle. $525 maximum per person. PAI/PEI is only available as a package.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW): CDW Insurance means the car rental company waives the right to collect a high deductible from you if the car is damaged, and most importantly it covers most of the car if you are in a collision. It is available for $24.99 USD plus tax per day, and significantly reduces the deductibles owed if you do have an accident or there is damage to the vehicle. Essentially, the rental company waivers their right to make you, the renter, pay for damages to the car. If you do have an accident, or the car is stolen, without CDW Insurance you will have to pay for all the repairs and recovery charges. With CDW insurance you only must pay an excess or deductible, which will be significantly less.

If the customer's auto insurance policy fails to provide collision and comprehensive insurance benefits for the rental vehicle, the rental agreement will not be processed unless the customer provides a major credit card with verifiable rental car damage coverage or purchases the optional coverage.
