Damage to Vehicle Waiver - D.V.W. :

The Hirer is responsible for the full cost of damage or loss to the rented vehicle. This can be reduced or eliminated by the two options of D.V.W. listed below:

  • Option 1 - Limited Liability - The hirer can limit liability for loss/damage to the rented vehicle by paying Damage to Vehicle Waiver (D.V.W.). The D.V.W. charge per day and the liability amounts for each vehicle type is as follows:

  • - Cars/Suzuki Jimny = US$14.00 per day/US$750.00
  • - Hiace Bus/Suzuki Grand Vitara/Luxury cars = US$25.00 per day/US$1900.00
  • - Luxury SUVs = US$30.00 per day/US$1900.00 or US$46.00 per day/US$450.00

  • N.B. If option 1 is taken, the liability amounts applicable will be taken as deposits. These will be refunded if there is no loss or damage to the rented vehicle.

  • Option 2 - Nil Liability (With T.P.F.) - The Hirer can eliminate his/her liability from the full cost in case of damage/loss to the rented vehicle including road wheels by purchasing the D.V.W. with Tyre Protection Fee (T.P.F.) at a daily cost of US30.00 per day for some cars and jeeps, and US$46.00 per day for buses, Suzuki Vitaras and Luxury cars.

    N.B. If option 2 is taken, a nominal deposit of between US$250.00 and US$450.00 will be required. It will be used if the vehicle is kept overdue and therefore leaving a balance due to us. This deposit is refundable and can be paid by a major credit card.

Credit Card Auto Coverage:

Fully Covered Cards

Some credit cards offer Collision Damage Waiver for rentals in the island of Jamaica. Cardholders therefore have the option to decline to purchase our Collision Damage Waiver. However, it is the responsibility of the hirer to verify that this coverage is available in Jamaica before renting. Further verification by our representatives may be required on arrival. Verification checks should also be made before hand about the types of vehicles that are covered, although most are. Cardholders will be billed on the credit card for the full amount of the loss/damage. All supporting documentation will be provided for subsequent claims for reimbursement.

Island reserves the right to ask for a security deposit. This deposit is not a payment for CDW insurance.

Cards without Full Coverage and Other Payment Methods

The purchase of Collision Damage Vehicle Waiver (CDW) is not mandatory. Regardless of method of payment (cash or any credit card type) hirers can choose not to purchase any of our CDW options. Such hirers will be billed for the full amount of the loss/damage. Island reserves the right to ask for a security deposit as a guarantee. This deposit is not payment for CDW.

Personal Accident Insurance: This can be purchased at daily rate of US$6.00. It covers the Driver and passengers in the Hired vehicle.

Third Party Insurance: Full third party insurance is included in the rental charges.
