My brother picked up a car from Sixt in Israel, they told him they do not accept credit card coverage at all since a month ago.  They say the reason is because they have too many open claims with chase that they just stopped taking that..
Anyone hear of similar cases?
Does a legit rental company even have the right to deny rental insurance from the credit card even with a letter from them stating that they cover in that country?

I rented last week from Sixt in Israel and they did accept my CSR card, they did however tell me that there is a deductible on the insurance which Chase never covers.

3 questions:
1. Is it worth paying extra to rent from Hertz to gain the advantage of returning the car directly to the Airport terminal?
2. Otherwise, how long is the trip from the drop-off point with the shuttle?
3. I read the Hertz is in Terminal 3, is that were all El Al international flights take off? We will flying El Al from TLV to Madrid, Spain.

1. If it's just $15 extra (as it usually is) then yes, 100% worth it.
2. Can take 20-40 min. till you return the car and get to the terminal.
3. Yes.

I have a mitsubishi Grandis reserved from Budget in TLV for a week (tues-tues) for $298. I have a letter from AMEX that states I have coverage for CDW.  Anyone know what they might add in charges once I get to the counter?  How much is the mandatory liability insurance?

I know there are many factors but in general is it better to wait to book a rental car in israel to get a better price?  In the us at least the prices seem to flucuate  a lot

dates of travel are 1/15/18 to 1/22/18

In Israel the only difference in price is usually dependent on if it's low season or high season prices.

We still have low season rates throughout...

agent quote usually includes mandatory insurance that hertz doesn't include. Try b.d.de'ehu on these forums. He always gets me the best all inclusive rate.

I've never had a claim with Sixt, but with other places they charged the credit card for the damage and the renter had to chase down the insurance for the money. Not sure why Sixt has "open claims".
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

If I see a quote on Kayak, how much more should I expect them to tack on for "mandatory undisclosed insurance" nonsense?

do yourself a favor and go with an agent.
There a few here on the forum that I've dealt with and can vouch for!
Quick response and always very easy to deal with.

It's cheaper, and there are no hidden fees
