Rental Cars and the Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) in Europe by Rick Steves
Our WaveRunner Damage Waiver Program is an exclusive program only offered at JBeez WaterCraft. This program is intended to save our customers money in the event their rented jet ski is damaged. This program buys our customers a lot of "leniency", with those little scuffs and scratches, and also reduces the liability exposure for 99% of other issues our customers face.
