Wheels, Tires, Undercarriage and Glass Coverage

Wheels, Tires, Undercarriage and Glass Coverage

Your liability is protected against damages and theft, (ZERO excess) by the car rental provider, except for wheels/ tires/ glass & undercarriage. It is common for the vast majority of car rental companies not to extend cover to include these parts because car rental companies consider these types of damages as negligence by the renter, so Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) does not cover these parts. Our Coverage provides protection for damages to wheels, rims, tires, undercarriage, windscreen, back/ side windows and mirror glass.
Upon collection, the car rental provider might withhold the estimated charge from the deposit and rental cost against your credit card until the vehicle is returned.
In the event that any of this type of damage to wheels, rims, tires, undercarriage, windscreen, back/ side windows and mirror glass occurs, which is not covered by the car rental provider, you will be charged with the amount corresponding to the damage.

Economy Car Rentals will refund you these charges.
*Claims must be reported to EconomyCarRentals within 90 days after the rental end.
