Liability coverage is the most basic protection that Sixt offers, however it is a must when you rent a car from any company. If purchased, Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI) protects the renter against claims made by a third party for bodily injury and/or property damages sustained as a result of an accident while the renter is operating a rental vehicle. This coverage supplies the renter with third-party liability protection up to a limit of $1,000,000 per accident.
The Partial Damage Waiver removes the renter's responsibility for the first $500 of damage to or loss of the vehicle. The customer will be held responsible for all other damage costs exceeding the amount of $500. PDW is not available in all states.
The Loss Damage Waiver (including Theft Protection) reduces the renter's responsibility to a part of the vehicle in the event of damage to or loss of the rental vehicle. If LDW is not accepted, the renter will be held liable for the full value of the car. (Loss Damage Waiver can also be referred to as LD)
If LDW is already included in the rates, the renter can choose the Super Top over LDW to further reduce the non-waiverable responsibility. (Super Top Cover LDW is also referred to as BF)
This policy covers nearly all windows in the vehicle, including the windshield, side windows, rear-window and mirror glass. GDW is not available within the USA (Glass Damage Waiver is also referred to as GT).
Personal Accident Protection covers bodily injury to occupants of the rental vehicle.
