The CDW, as the name implies, covers the costs of repairs incurred as a result of an accident.

Some CDW policies cover the full cost of all repairs required as a result of the accident.

LDW

LDW can protect you from any unexpected costs incurred as a result of car theft or damage. It consists of a CDW and Theft Protection expenditure coverage combo. This will save you money on auto replacement or repairs if your vehicle is damaged by vandalism, collision, fire, or acts of nature, among other things. The amount varies on the policy of the insurance provider or the scope of service you have chosen.
