  • What Insurance is included?

    AUTO LIABILITY In both the United States and Canada, the company provides Auto Liability coverage for you on a secondary basis for bodily injury, property damage and personal injury protection (PIP) as required by the laws of the state or province in which an accident may occur, for claims made against you and/or authorized drivers. The liability coverage is void if the rental vehicle is not operated safely in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and in compliance with all Terms & Conditions of the Rental Agreement.

    In addition, USA and Canada rentals INCLUDE Supplemental Liability Insurance providing excess liability insurance up to $500,000, for your peace of mind.

    YOUR DAMAGE RESPONSIBILITY – As a result of including insurance in the pre-paid rate, Cruise America have been able to vastly improve both the coverage for you and the simplicity of the transaction. You only have responsibility for up to $2,500 deductible per incident regardless of fault for vehicle loss or damage per occurrence, provided you abide by the Terms & Conditions of the Rental Agreement, report promptly in case of an accident or vehicle damage, and avoid prohibited uses.

    Cruise America and Cruise Canada also offer a product to called “Zero Damage Plan.” Zero Damage Plan (ZDP) can be purchased at the rental counter and enables renters to reduce their responsibility for loss of or damage to the vehicle from $2,500 to zero ($0). ZDP provides peace of mind to many clients that have expressed an interest in an option for further reducing their damage responsibility while on rent. The current price is $19.95 per day up to a maximum of 30 days ($598.50). For longer rentals there is still coverage but no additional daily fee.
