If my credit card offers me the necessary coverage’s, how can I make use of them?

LDW (CDW) - Loss and Damage Waiver is available at $33.65USD per day for all types of vehicles. The LDW (CDW) is optional and is typically purchased by customers that are not covered for vehicle damage or loss by their Credit Card Company (or insurance linked to a credit card). For your own protection we prefer that all customers present a valid letter or proof of coverage from his credit card issuing institution with a verifiable phone number and/or email address for confirmation, stating that LDW (CDW) coverage is provided by his/her credit card. All credit cards issuing institutions must be regulated by the Mexican CNSF (Comisión Nacional de Seguros y Fianzas) the official Government Institution that regulates Insurance companies in Mexico.

If customer does have the appropriate approval and coverage from its credit card institution they will have to sign a "statement of personal responsibility for the total value of the car" for refusing to purchase the CDW insurance with Europcar Mexico (FLEET CAR COMPANY MX, S.A. de C.V.) and will therefore, in the event of an accident, be fully responsible for all damage and/or repairs." The following Rental deposit will be held on the customer credit card. If the customer cannot guarantee the rental deposit the LDW (CDW) will become mandatory.
