LOSS DAMAGE WAIVER (LDW)

Once the LDW is accepted, the lessee shall only be liable for the first $800 - $1500 of the total damage expenses (depending on the type of vehicle). 

 
Lessees may reject the LDW if the credit card they are paying with was issued in the United States or in Canada, offers coverage and can be verified by a National Car Rental employee in Costa Rica. There may be car types for which the LDW is mandatory. If the LDW is rejected, the lessee will be held responsible for the total damages expenses and the SLI policy will be mandatory. This coverage does not include roadside assistance required as a result of the client’s negligence or assistance in the event of lost keys, flat tires, etc.

National Car Rental guarantees that all policyholders or any insured parties under this insurance policy shall be covered 

 
This insurance policy covers up to ¢40 million PER PERSON and up to ¢100 million PER ACCIDENT in which the rental vehicle is involved. This policy covers “all sums for which the insured party, or any other parties covered by such policy, are held liable by a final judgment, in relation to such accident and any personal or property damages caused by it.” This coverage excludes the driver and any family member thereof, any person residing in the driver’s household, or any family member of the latter. 

 
Under this insurance policy, the lessee will be liable for 20% of all damages, which under no circumstance will be less than $250 USD. 

 
This coverage becomes mandatory when the LDW is declined.
