It will also cover the cost of replacement tyres or windscreen. However, it will not cover any damage to the vehicle or third party property caused through a reversing manoeuvre, deemed as malicious damage i.e. vehicle brake in or vandalism, cover the replacement or repair of windows or cover the theft of the vehicle. No insurance cover is offered for overhead damage, any damaged deemed as gross negligence or any internal damages therefore full liability will apply.

Incident must be reported to South Yorks Motorhome Hire within 24 hours otherwise CDW cover will not apply. Minimum charge term for CDW is 5 nights, maximum charge terms is 21 nights.
