More On Collision Damage Waiver Insurance

Collision Damage won't cover you for any damage to the windscreen, tyres, roof or under body of your car; it also won't include any damage caused by fire, vandalism or theft. These are all areas easily damaged in even a minor accident and repair costs may be high. We feel these are pretty important aspects of your car, after all is a car even a car if it doesn't have wheels, a roof, a windscreen or an under body? Our Gold policy includes Loss Damage Waiver which is a more comprehensive form of cover and covers ALL parts of your vehicle should anything happen to it including damage caused by fire, theft or vandalism.
