collision damage waiver (CDW)

An agreement with an auto rental company in which the renter is released from liability for collision damage to the vehicle in exchange for a fee, subject to the terms of the rental agreement or a state statute if one exists. It is not insurance but a contractual obligation subject to many restrictions. See Loss damage waiver.
