ok- im looking for a 10 day rental picking up April 8th at Ben Gurion and dropping off April 18th.
I am over 25, and would take a manual or automatic. Any ideas where to go? Do corporate accounts work in Israel?

It seems that if i have a world MasterCard or a business MC, i can avoid paying the CDW...Is that any world mastercard? Can anyone recommend which one to sign up for? It cant be a chase as i already have 2 chase cards approved in the last 6 months...
I was thinking of getting the Ameriprise world MasterCard (no annual fee) just to avoid paying the CDW. Is there a different card i should get that would offer me some nice perks while im at it?

Again, cant seem to edit a prior post...it seems the AA citi card is a world mastercard which i obviously have.

Dan, you wrote over here: http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/5335#comment-54697 that you were going to try and dispute the LDW charges...did it work?

Budget.com try out BCD: Z939000

Would one need to show any kind of ID to use that BCD? What is that BCD for?

Thanks!

Exem Corp.  Seems like a fictitious company.  I've never been asked to show ID for it.

It is for April 8th to April 18th (10 days) for a Mazda3 or similar. I am over 25 so no underage fees.
I have a World Mastercard which i am using to cover the CDW.

I am paying $317 total. This includes the car, the LDW, and the airport convenience fee.

What do you want to know?
BTW it's 20% less when using the BCD for Budget above.
