All reservations require a credit card authorization (hold) equaling the estimated cost of the rental at the time of booking.

At the time of check-out you must provide a credit card deposit of $100 plus the estimated cost of the rental.

In addition we must have a credit card on file to cover the insurance excess amounts, fuel, extended rental period, traffic fines, and mileage overage. To do so, a valid credit card in the name of the renter, must be provided upon vehicle check out.

Renter Requirements

What do I need to rent a car from Countrywide?

Eligible renters must have the following:

Valid driver’s license

Major credit card in your name

  • We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express
  • Please note that a major credit card and a debit card with the Visa or MasterCard logo are not the same. Credit cards have a pre-determined spending limit.
    • All renters must provide proof of current United States automobile insurance policy in your name that covers vehicles for hire. Many major credit cards include rental car insurance coverage. Check with your insurance company and/or credit card provider prior to your rental.

      If you do not have automobile insurance in your name, you may purchase Countrywide's uninsured motorist coverage for up to $100 per day. Please note that Countrywide's uninsured motorist coverage is limited to use only in New York State.

What is the age requirement to rent a car with Countrywide?

To avoid a youthful driver fee, the primary renter and any additional drivers of the vehicle must be at least 25 years of age.

Minimum age to rent a vehicle is 18 years of age in NY State.

  • A $35.00/day additional charge applies to renters/drivers 18-20 years old.
  • A $25.00/day additional charge applies to renters/drivers 21-24 years old.

Certain specialty and larger sized vehicles may not be rented to drivers under the age of 25.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is not insurance.CDW is an option that relieves the renter of financial responsibility if the car is damaged or stolen while under rental contract. If you chose to decline CDW and the rental vehicle is damaged or stolen, your credit card will be immediately charged for your insurance deductible. Additionally, you may be responsible for loss-of-use charges while the vehicle is out of service for repair.

Please Note: CDW is limited to collision damage only. CDW does not cover damage normally covered by Comprehensive Insurance (glass damage, etc.)

Optional Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) does not apply for Canadian travel.
