Purchase of LDW reduces the liability to zero in the event of an accident, fire, or theft to the Avis vehicle provided the customer complies with the terms and conditions of the rental agreement. Theft Protection is included in the LDW. If LDW is declined, the rental incurs a loss due to damage or theft; the renter may be liable for up to the full replacement value of the vehicle.
*Exception: LDW is mandatory on 12 passenger vans, pickups and premium SUVs. Deductible on these car groups ranges between 800.00 USD to 1,000.00 USD.
Thefts that occur due to customer negligence (not locking vehicle or securing keys) is not covered.
