This coverage, LDW (Loss Damage Waiver), is optional and may be declined providing you can supply valid coverage.
There are several options available. Many credit cards today provide car rental insurance at no charge. Your own automobile policy from your personal automobile may also cover car rentals. It is wise to call these institutions and inquire if you have car rental insurance for non-owned automobiles.
If you do have this insurance, then you do not not have to purchase Loss Damage Waiver from Affinity.
If you have a debit or bank card, these cards DO NOT cover LDW for car rentals. 12 passenger vans, commercial vans, full size SUVs, and some sports cars are NOT covered by any credit cards. If you rent one of the above vehicles and do not supply your own insurance, you will be required to purchase LDW coverage in order to reduce your exposure to extreme potential losses.
Loss Damage Deductibles may increase if you are unable to provide proof that you are an experienced driver. Providing a copy of your current ownership and/or automobile policy will ensure the lowest Loss Damage Deductible available for the vehicle you are renting.
NOTE: If you cannot prove your driving experience, Affinity has the right to decline the rental of a specific vehicle.
If you need further explanation, we will gladly discuss it with you.
