While I understand that LI may be expensive, having the price start so low helps offset the cost of the LI....
nope. still about 165$

LI is based on the car grade - the more expensive the car the more its gonna cost. Even if you get a cheaper price for the car, it doesnt help getting cheaper LI (and the same is being upgraded, even if you pay the price of the lower grade car, LI is on the car u got)

I have rented from avis countless times with world mastercard.... only saves 14 NIS a day

keep in mind after insurance ur rental price will double or even close to triple

I am always puzzled when I see Dan or others discussing World Mastercards for Israel rentals. It barely saves anything.

A huge benefit of the world mastercard is that there is no deductible. In Israel if you are in an accident or even scratch the car there is a $1000 deductible (for renters under 25, and $500 for over $24)

With the mastercard there is no deductible, and the rental company takes care of collecting the money from the mastercard - Thats one of the documents you sign  - - giving them permission to collect

(hence- its more worth it to total the car than fill it up with gas  ;))

I understood what you meant, I just don't believe that in the 63 year history of the country of Israel, that has ever happened

A big deal because they usually ding you for a few hundred dollars for a tiny pre-existing scratch.
