When you book an Avis rental car in Jersey the price you are quoted includes, by law, the basic insurance needed should you be involved in an accident. This includes legal liability, third party and public liability insurance.
In addition, the rental rates shown also INCLUDE theft protection and collision damage waiver (CDW) with a reduced excess. When CDW is not required please contact us for rates.
You can check your excess amount and choose an 'excess waiver' to suit your booked car at time of reserving your car or upon collecting your vehicle.
All Avis Jersey rental cars are insured under Polar Cars Ltd's policy in accordance with Jersey Law.
Each hirer is responsible for damage that occurs to the vehicle whilst on hire to them up to an amount. This amount is called the excess.
You may purchase Super CDW which will waiver this excess to Zero. The hirer will then NOT be liable for damages to the vehicle. If you purchase ‘Super CDW’ from our website or Polar Cars Ltd at check-out we will not require any further payments for damage. If you purchase waiver products from third parties then you will still remain liable for damage costs with us. It will be your responsibility to claim these damages from the waiver supplier.
