Coverage
LOSS DAMAGE WAIVER (LDW)
Renting a vehicle at National Car Rental means you are held responsible for returning it in the same conditions as you received it. The LDW is not a coverage, yet it releases you from any payment obligations in case of theft, vandalism, collision, and damages to the vehicle’s exterior, regardless of the culprit, provided you comply with the terms established in the lease.

Once the LDW is accepted, the lessee shall only be liable for the first $800 - $1500 of the total damage expenses (depending on the type of vehicle).

Lessees may reject the LDW if the credit card they are paying with was issued in the United States or in Canada, offers coverage and can be verified by a National Car Rental employee in Costa Rica. There may be car types for which the LDW is mandatory. If the LDW is rejected, the lessee will be held responsible for the total damages expenses and the SLI policy will be mandatory. This coverage does not include roadside assistance required as a result of the client’s negligence or assistance in the event of lost keys, flat tires, etc.

SUPPLEMENTAL LIABILITY COVERAGE (SLC)
This insurance policy releases you from any third party liability. If you are involved in an accident while you are driving a rental and any damages are cause to third party property, the SLI will cover up to ¢10.000.000.00 in third party property damages.

National Car Rental “guarantees that all policyholders or any insured parties under this insurance policy shall be covered

This insurance policy covers up to ¢40 million PER PERSON and up to ¢100 million PER ACCIDENT in which the rental vehicle is involved. This policy covers “all sums for which the insured party, or any other parties covered by such policy, are held liable by a final judgement, in relation to such accident and any personal or property damages caused by it.” This coverage excludes the driver and any family member thereof, any person residing in the driver’s household, or any family member of the latter.

Under this insurance policy, the lessee will be liable for 20% of all damages, which under no circumstance will be less than $250.

In the case of corporate clients or individuals using the vehicle for labor related matters, the applicable insurance policy is not the SLI but their respective company’s póliza de riesgos de trabajo (worker’s compensation policy).

This coverage becomes mandatory when the LDW is declined.

$0.00 DEDUCTIBLE
When you rent a vehicle at National Car Rental and you accept any of our coverages, you become responsible for a specific deductible amount for each of them.

The $0.00 deductible option allows you to reduce your payment obligations under any of the previously accepted coverages, provided you agree to the terms and conditions of the rental agreement in relation to the deductibles of the accepted insurance policies.

Any damages caused by driving on sand, in water or under the influence -as stated in the rental agreement- are not covered. Should you decline this option, you will be responsible for paying the deductibles of the accepted coverages, as stated in the rental agreement.
