Helpful hints on Insurance coverage in Belize:

This is not insurance. This is an industry standard amount pre-authorized by your card company at time of rental and is not processed against your account unless there are damages to vehicle when you return it. In the event the vehicle is returned without any damages the autorization is not pursued and will be released after seven to fifteen days. The deposit is USD$1000.00. If the CDW is declined the desposit is US$1500.00. This deposit is placed as an authorization only and held for a minimum of 7 to 15 days after which time it is released. If however your rental is longer then the Company will reissue the authorization. In some cases, depending on the issuing bank the deposit can be held up to 10-15 days.

(CDW) Collission Damage Waiver
CDW - Is not insurance, it reduces the customer's responsibility. If CDW is declined the customer will be responsible for the full value of the Thrifty vehicle. Regardless if CDW being taken a non-waiverable excess (deductible) for all vehicle types will be charged in case of damage to the Thrifty vehicle.

Liability Insurance Supplement (LIS) provides you with up to BZ$1million of increased protection should bodily injury by people injured in an accident occur and up to BZ$250,000 for property damage claims be made against you.
