VWFS Rent-a-Car Insurance & Options
Retail prices are all inclusive of VAT and the collision damage waiver (CDW), meaning your standard excess will be £500. What's more, for an additional £10 per day, you can reduce the standard excess even further to £250 on both car and van rental with the Enhanced Collision Damage Waiver.
What’s included in your collision damage waiver:
Available across the UK – 24/7 phone number to call for assistance for a breakdown, or an accident.
Windscreen and Glass damage
These are covered, but you will be liable for the applicable excess.
This is covered under fair wear and tear, anything outside of this you will be liable for the applicable excess.
Applicable excess to pay on any new damage that is on the vehicle when you bring it back. This could be of your own fault or that of a third party (somebody else damages the rental car whilst in your care). If the damage is less than your applicable excess you will just be charged for the cost of the repair not the full excess.
Spread the cost of your rental, from the date you book to the date you collect your car.4
You can now book a car and pay later with Rent a Car. Choose to pay a small amount at point of booking and pay the full amount later. The full amount must be paid before the car is released at pick up.
This option will allow you to choose to pay their rental cost over a period of time rather than full payment upfront when making the booking. Pay later doesn’t inflate the price, it allows you to choose how much you pay and provides the flexibility to choose how often you make a payment.
Now available when booking with VWFS Rent-a-Car online.
