Collision Damage Waiver- Theft Protection (CDW-TP) is not insurance. The purchase of CDW-TP is optional and not required in order to rent a vehicle. You may purchase optional CDW - TP for an additional daily fee, which reduces your responsibility of damage or theft to the vehicle. This waiver is subject to compliance with the terms and conditions, listed on the rental agreement and/or jacket, which if breached will invalidate the coverage/waiver provided. The CDW – TP covers the rental vehicle in case of accident, fire, theft, robbery, total loss and damages with no deductible. It excludes theft and/or damage of the rims, tires and spare tires, and any interior damage such as cigarette burns, rips or stains to the upholstery or carpet and any missing accessories such as floor mats, jack and radio. If you purchase CDW-TP, you will be required to provide an additional deposit or credit card authorization at the time of the rental in the amount of $125.00 USD plus the cost of the rental.
If the renter cannot present written proof of existing collision and theft protection that is valid in Barbados and they do not purchase one of the available protection products, they will be required to provide an additional deposit or credit card authorization at the time of the rental in the amount of $2,000.00 USD plus the cost of the rental, and will be responsible for the full value of damage to, loss or theft of the rental vehicle. Please be aware that most auto insurance policies from outside Barbados do not provide coverage in Barbados. Damage waiver products purchased on third party travel websites are not an acceptable form of coverage. Employees of the local rental car company are not qualified to evaluate the adequacy of the customer's personal auto insurance coverage. You should contact your insurance company prior to arrival with any questions regarding their specific coverage. If CDW-TP is declined, renter is responsible for the full value of damage to the vehicle.
