Fleet has changed since the OP posed the question.

If you reserved a mystery prestige, it will likely be an Audi A3, A4, Q5 or possibly Q7, in that order. Most likely A3 and very unlikely Q7.

I think you mean Accident Excess Reduction (AER) - CDW is not a common term used in NZ (or Australia), except by Europcar. AER costs $29.90 a day incl. GST for standard cars.
