One Way Rentals

Responsibility for Rental Vehicle
AM holds the renter responsible for the safe return of the rental vehicle in the same condition as it was rented, except for normal wear and tear. Unless prohibited by law, a renter may be held responsible for all damages, including loss of use, should the vehicle be damaged in an accident, stolen or vandalized. This is the case regardless of fault. Whether who is at fault in the accident, the renter may be asked to pay for the damage up to and including the total cost of replacing the vehicle in case of a total wreck or loss. Be sure any estimated damage to the vehicle has been recorded properly before leaving the rental location.
Our Insurance Coverage Products
Collision Damage Waiver - CDW (Canada)
AM provides you, the renter and authorized drivers with a way to minimize your responsibility for loss or damage to the rental vehicle through the purchase of Collision Damage Waiver (CDW). If collision damage waiver is purchased, a standard $500.00 or $1000 deductible applies regardless of fault. CDW is NOT insurance. It is a waiver of AM’s right to collect from the renter or authorized driver for the loss or damage to the rental vehicle. The renter or authorized driver is responsible for any loss or damage to the rental vehicle, regardless of who is at fault. In addition, unless prohibited or limited by law, the renter or authorized driver (s) is responsible for administrative and loss of use fees.* If elected, CDW waives the renter's and authorized driver(s) responsibility for loss or damage to the rental vehicle up to the full value of the vehicle including administrative and loss of use fees less the applicable deductible, if any. CDW does not cover unauthorized drivers and is void if the Renter or Authorized Driver(s) engage in any of the Prohibited Uses and Violations as described in the Terms and Conditions. See the Terms and Conditions for additional Exclusions. *Note: AM may elect not to repair a vehicle in which case the renter or authorized driver(s) is responsible for the retail value of the vehicle before it was damaged, less any salvage amount that AM collects less the applicable deductible.
