Insurance Coverage

The Premium Package includes the following coverage:

Lost Damage Waiver (LDW) waives the renter's and authorized driver(s) responsibility for loss or damage to the rental vehicle up to the full value of the vehicle including administrative and loss of use fees. LDW does not cover unauthorized drivers and is void if the renter or authorized driver(s) engage in any of the Prohibited Uses and Violations as described in the Terms and Conditions. See the Terms and Conditions for additional Exclusions.

Note: National may elect not to repair a vehicle in which case the renter or authorized driver(s) is responsible for the retail value of the vehicle before it was damaged, less any salvage amount that National collects.

Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI) provides primary protection for liability claims against the Renter and authorized drivers for injury/death or property damage. National provides the renter and authorized drivers with third party liability protection in an amount equal to the minimum financial responsibility limits applicable to the vehicle (the Primary Protection). SLI also provides third party liability protection, through an excess liability policy, with limits of the difference between the Primary Protection and a combined single limit of $1 million per accident for bodily injury, death and/or property damage to others arising out of the use or operation of the National rental vehicle by the (renter) or an authorized driver, subject to the terms and conditions of the policy. SLI also provides Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist (collectively UM/UIM) for bodily injury and property damage, for the difference between the statutory minimum underlying limits and $100,000 (or state mandated UM/UIM limits, whichever is greater)* to the (renter) and any family member related by blood, marriage or adoption, who while occupying the National rental car sustained bodily injury or death caused by a negligent uninsured/underinsured motorist. SLI does not include any additional UM/UIM coverage above $100,000 (unless mandated by law).
