Windshield insurance has to be done separate?
I rented with my CSR. not sure if they will cover windshield.
I know with regular car insurance, glass is a separate coverage.

Not by all insurance companies.

My regular car insurance does cover glass, maybe differs from company to company.

Israel.

AFAIK CSR covers windshield, it's only the Israeli car rental providers who like to exclude it so they can make more money.

Thanks,
Should I bother paying $25 to try and fix it before I return
Rather not have the hassle with the insurance

update.
I went to get a qoute from a glass shop nearby and turns out the chip in the window has already been repaired! meaning it was there before I picked up the car (he pointed out the drill mark) so I called budget who said it's not in their records, then I called the location where I picked up the car to try my luck again
I got the agent who gave me the car( I had purchased lunch for her, and got a $150 discount)
And she went through the past few rentals with this car and found the check in sheet which has the chip maroed on it.
I now have it in my email, hopefully it'll be good enough?

Rented a car today for 3 hours in CLE. Drove 13 miles total for the day. Booked through Priceline. Drove the car off the lot with a Full tank and returned with a Full tank. Somehow they clocked me out at 30.9 gallons and returned at 29.9 gallons.
1. How the heck can they know how many gallons are in the tank?
2. How am I supposed to know how many gallons are in it?
3. They charged a minimum Fuel Service Charge of $15.99 and I ended up with a $35+ charge for allegedly bringing it back 1 gallon below full.

I think this is a racket they are running for those people that dont prepay for gas. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  >:(   

Gonna crosspost to get some more feedback.

Hi has anyone tried lately to use the USAA code for Budget to waive the underage fee in the Brooklyn (Adams St) location or the JFK location without having a USAA card? how was your experience with that?
