Car Hire Jargon. What does Super CDW, Deductable or Non Waiver mean?

We unpick so of the more confusing terms of car hire, including Non Waiver agreements, Super CDW and Deductables.

The expressions Super CDW, Deductable or Non Waiver are used by different companies in different parts of the world, but actually mean the same thing.

When a car is hired the insurance that comes with it, whether packaged in or bought separately, has an 'excess' which leaves the hirer with the responsibility for the first few hundred (or few thousand) pounds of a claim. This excess is also called the Super CDW, Deductable or Non Waiver.

It is this excess, along with parts of the car that are excluded from any standard car hire insurance policy, such as windows, wheels, tyres or the underside of the vehicle, that are covered by the excess insurance offered by companies on the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance comparison service
