AMBASSADOR RV maintains liability coverage on all its rental vehicles to a maximum of $ 5,000,000 for any bodily injury and property damage liability claims arising from the operation or use of its rental vehicles. Premiums for this basic public liability coverage are included in all rental rates, which also include premiums for collision and comprehensive insurance with a deductible of $ 5,000 per occurrence.

AMBASSADOR RV provides additional coverage known as CDR (Collision Deductible Reducer) at $ 20/day to reduce the insurance deductible to $ 500 - $ 1,500 per occurrence. This is not an insurance but a contractual agreement between AMBASSADOR RV and renter, wherein AMBASSADOR RV agrees not to collect more than the agreed deductible from the renter per occurrence for specific losses or damages.
