Some insurance coverage(s) require purchases, auto rentals, common carrier fares, hotel or motel and other trip costs to be charged to the card and be for business purposes to activate coverage Other conditions may also apply.

The full cost of the rental must be charged to the card and the rental agency's Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) or Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) must be declined. CLDI provides coverage up to the actual cash value (ACV) of the rental vehicle as defined in your insurance certificate.

Before declining the rental agency's CDW or LDW, you should read carefully and compare the terms of the rental agreement, the CLDI insurance certificate in your Card package and any other insurance you own to decide which coverage best meets your protection needs.

Certain RSA coverages are "excess insurance" (all other sources of insurance and recovery must be exhausted before coverage is available).
