Wheels, Tires, Undercarriage and Glass Coverage


EconomyCarRentals Wheels, Tires, Undercarriage and Glass Coverage

With zero excess your liability is protected by the rental car provider in case of damages and theft, with the exception of wheels/ tires/ glass /mirror & undercarriage. It is standard practice for the vast majority of car rental companies not to extend cover to include these parts due to car rental companies considering this type of damage as negligence by the renter, hence Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) does not cover these parts. By purchasing our additional coverage, EconomyCarRentals will provide protection for damages to wheels, rims, tires, undercarriage, windshield, back/ side windows/windscreen and mirror glass.

The rental car provider may withhold the estimated charge as an additional deposit along with the rental cost against your credit card until the vehicle is returned.
In the unfortunate event that any of this type of damage to wheels, rims, tires, undercarriage, windshield, back/ side windows/
windscreen and mirror glass happens, which is not covered by the rental car provider, you will be charged with the appropriate amount corresponding to the damage.

EconomyCarRentals will refund you these charges.
*All claims must be reported to EconomyCarRentals within 90 days after the rental period.

  • Wheels/tires: up to 60 EUR (71 USD) per wheel/ tire

  • Underside: up to 250 EUR (296 USD)

  • Glass / Mirror: up to 350 EUR (415 USD)

  • NOTE For each and every claim, the maximum amount that will be paid out is a total of 500 EUR. All reimbursements will be made in EUR.
