Can I purchase car rental insurance and other Protection Products from Enterprise for a rental car in South Africa?
Enterprise offers additional protection products that you can purchase along with your rental vehicle. Currently, we offer our customers Damage Waiver, Personal Effects Coverage, Supplemental Liability Protection and Roadside Assistance Protection.
Please see below for more information and the cost associated with our insurance and protection products:
Damage Waiver (DW)
Damage Waiver is not insurance. The purchase of DW is optional and not required in order to rent a vehicle.
You may purchase optional DW for an additional fee. If you purchase DW we agree, subject to the actions that invalidate DW listed on the rental agreement, to contractually waive your responsibility for all or part of the cost of damage to, loss or theft of, the vehicle.
When deciding whether or not to purchase DW, you may wish to check with your insurance broker or credit card company to determine whether, in the event of damage to, or theft of, vehicle, you have coverage or protection for such damage or theft and the amount of your deductible or out-of-pocket risk.
What Does Damage Waiver Cost?
The cost of Damage Waiver varies by location and vehicle type. You can find specific pricing by starting a reservation here.
Personal Effects Coverage (PEC)
Personal Effects Coverage (PEC) is offered at the time of rental for an additional daily charge. If accepted, the PEC contained in the policy insures the personal effects of the renter, additional drivers, or anyone who is traveling with the renter against risks of loss or damage. Benefits are payable in addition to any other insurance coverage the renter or passengers may have. This is a summary only.
The purchase of PEC is optional and not required to rent a car. The coverage provided by PEC may duplicate the renter's existing coverage.
Enterprise is not qualified to evaluate the adequacy of the renter's existing coverage; therefore, the renter should examine his or her personal insurance policies or other sources of coverage that may duplicate the coverage provided by PEC.
What Does PEC Cost?
The cost of PEC varies based on the location you are renting.
Supplemental Liability Protection (SLP)
Supplemental Liability Protection (SLP) is offered at the time of rental for an additional daily charge. If accepted, SLP provides the renter and authorised drivers combined cover for third party liability claims.
If the renter accepts SLP, Enterprise provides third party liability protection up to the applicable minimum financial responsibility limit and Zurich American Insurance Company provides excess third party liability insurance coverage. This is a summary only.
The purchase of SLP is optional and not required to rent a car. The coverage provided by SLP may duplicate the renter's existing coverage.
Enterprise is not qualified to evaluate the adequacy of the renter's existing coverage; therefore, the renter should examine his or her personal insurance policies or other sources of coverage that may duplicate the coverage provided by SLP.
What Does Supplemental Liability Protection (SLP) Cost?
The cost of SLP varies based on location you are renting.
Roadside Assistance Protection (RAP)
Roadside Assistance Protections (RAP) allows Enterprise customers to waive financial responsibility for chargeable roadside incidents such as lost keys, lockouts, and fuel outages.
RAP can be added to online bookings at the branch or can be added to a rental ticket at any time. Please note: If added mid-rental, the renter must return to a designated renting location to have the vehicle inspected before adding RAP.

These are optional products that may be purchased at the time of rental and are not included in the total cost estimate quoted in the reservation.
