Why do I need extra cover in America? Across the pond, car hire companies won’t always include some insurance features you'd usually find in your rental agreement. Customers can be required to purchase additional Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) or Supplementary Liability Insurance (SLI) on top of the price of their hire car. Our USA & Canada policy, not only covers your excess worldwide, it includes CDW and SLI for car hire across America. Happy days. In a nutshell, a collision damage waiver (CDW) covers your liability for damage, loss or theft of the rental vehicle. If you’re hiring a car in Europe CDW is almost certainly included in the price of your rental. In the Americas however, it’s less common to find CDW included and you may be required to purchase this cover as an added extra. Similarly, supplementary liability insurance (SLI) (sometimes referred to as third party cover) may not be included as standard in the Americas. So at insurance4carhire, we've created our Worldwide Plus policy to insure your excess Worldwide + CDW and SLI cover, usually at a lesser cost than you will find at the rental desk. Find out more
