Super Full Damage Waiver (Super FDW) insurance is the affordable way to deal with the unexpected when you rent a car
Renting a car most of the times means driving a car you’re not familiar with, in unfamiliar places, maybe on narrow country roads with signs in a foreign language. Parking may be difficult and dealing with local driving habits can be challenging. If you have an accident and the car is damaged your rental agreement will cover the full cost minus a cost called EXCESS mentioned in your car rental policy. In this case you will be liable to pay this excess amount, which in many cases could be more than the amount you’ve paid for renting the car. This can ruin your trip and make you wish you hadn’t spared the few extra euros when you were booking the car. Next time you rent a car do it confidently without the fear of unplanned costs and enjoy worry-free holidays with the Super Full Damage Waiver insurance from our associated Insurance Company, a world leader in travel insurance and services.
