If you purchase CDW-TP, the rental company agrees, subject to the actions listed on the rental agreement that invalidate CDW-TP, to contractually waive your responsibility for the cost of damage to or loss of the vehicle after the deductible of up to 5,000.00 USD, depending on car class. CDW-TP does not cover hail damage to the vehicle or damage to or loss of the windshield or tires. If CDW-TP is declined, the renter is responsible for the full cost of damage or the full value of the vehicle.
