Accidents always happen, that’s why we have insurance. Of course, different kinds of insurance cover different areas of expenses, and the more optimal your choice of insurance, the lower the risks of financial liability. The platinum level of insurance offered by SAADATRENT is the international LDW insurance package which limits expenses to your initial deposit. However, in the case of accidents, if the leased car is kept under repair for a long period, the renter is liable for the accompanied expenses that are not covered by insurance. SAADATRENT offers two types of insurance, basic and full coverage.

  2. SAADATRENT Safety Commitment (SSP)
  3. Full protection against theft
  4. Additional Liability Insurance (ALI)
  5. Car tow and salvage expenses are upon the renter

Daily Price: Free
