Some classes of vehicles, such as exotics, large passenger or vans, and other specialty vehicles, may not be allowed to be driven outside of the United States.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is not insurance. Purchase of CDW is optional and not required to rent a vehicle.
You can optionally purchase CDW for an additional fee. If you purchase CDW, we contractually agree to waive your responsibility for all or part of the cost of damage, loss or theft of the vehicle, subject to the actions set out in the Rental Agreement that invalidate CDW. DW does not apply to damage occurring in Mexico.
In deciding whether or not to purchase CDW, you should check with your insurance agent or credit card company to determine whether you have coverage or protection for such damage or theft in the event of damage to or theft of the vehicle and the amount of your excess or excess risk.
*For rentals originating in California - CDW ranges from $10.99 to $500.00 per day depending on the type of vehicle rented.
For retail rentals covered only with extended protection within the cost of the rental (excluding any liability coverage or insurance coverage provided under a commercial contract):
Extended Protection (EP) (if available): Owner will provide Renter or any AAD with liability coverage equal to the minimum financial liability applicable to the Vehicle (the Primary Protection). EP also offers additional liability coverage through an excess policy with limits on the difference between primary insurance and a combined individual limit of $1 million per accident for personal injury and/or property damage to others resulting from the use or operation of the owner's rental vehicle by the renter or an AAD, subject to the terms of the policy. EP includes UM/UIM coverage for bodily injury and property damage (only where required by law for property damage) equal to the minimum financial liability applicable to the vehicle (the primary protection) and additional coverage through an excess with limits on the difference between the minimum statutory floors and $100,000 per accident (for rentals from New York the UM/UIM limits are $100,000 per person/$300,000 per accident; for rentals from Hawaii the UM/UIM limits are $1,000,000 combined single limit) or state-mandated UM /UIM limit, whichever is higher. OWNERS AND RENTERS DISCLAIM ANY ADDITIONAL UM/UIM COVERAGE TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. EP, including UM/UIM benefits, is only granted if the renter or an AAD is driving the vehicle. No claim for UM/UIM can be made due to negligence of the driver of the vehicle. EP coverage is only valid while another AAD or renter is driving the vehicle within the United States and Canada; Insurance coverage is not valid in Mexico.
