Limited Damage Waiver (LDW)

LDW covers you from financial responsibility if you experience any loss or damage to the truck or towing equipment except if the vehicle or equipment is used in any manner that violates the rental agreement terms. LDW does not cover your personal vehicle.

Why is LDW recommended?

  • Without Penske's Limited Damage Waiver, you will be liable for any damage to your rental truck regardless of who is at fault.
  • Most major credit card companies do not cover rental truck damage.
  • Your automobile insurance company may not cover rental truck damage and even if they do, you face a deductible and higher premiums.
  • Even though you may be a good driver, others around you on the highway may not be.

Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI)**

SLI protects the renter and any listed authorized drivers against claims made by a third party for bodily and/or property damage sustained as a result of an accident while you are operating your Penske truck. This coverage is excess over the underlying insurance specified within your signed rental agreement up to $1,000,000. Renter and all authorized drivers must be 21 years of age to purchase.

Cargo Insurance (CAI)

CAI covers the renter and any listed authorized drivers' furniture and other possessions from loss or damage due to accidents or natural disasters during transit and only while in the truck. Furniture and possessions damage while loading or unloading is not covered. Cargo coverage for the entire rental is limited to $15,000 (deductible per occurrence $100).

Personal Accident Insurance (PAI)

PAI offers accidental death and accident medical coverage for the renter of the truck and their passenger(s). Passenger coverage is provided within the enclosed portion of the rental vehicle only. This insurance pays in addition to other available insurance.

Additional Coverage Additional Coverage

Towing Insurance (TWI)

TWI is recommended for drivers who are towing their own vehicle. If you choose not to get a bundle, this insurance bundle can still be selected and added separately.

TWI provides protection against collision damage for a vehicle while attached to, towed by or detached from your rented Penske truck. It also covers a vehicle while being loaded onto, transported by or unloaded from a Penske tow dolly or carrier. TWI does not cover the Penske truck or towing equipment.
