i dont think anyone covers liability except for your personal auto insurance
and if i don't have a personal auto insurance policy who covers liability? i thought it was illegal to drive without liability ins.

If u have a mastercard world credit card rent from eldan. Call them up and mention the fact that u will not be paying insurance and the rate will come out to less than 20 dollars per day for the smallest car.

Coming back to yerent.

I had some nasty surprises there.

They (Sixt) added all kind of new taxes (as the regular taxes were included).

Season taxes, peak taxes,...

I asked them as Sixt has an orange logo, doesn't that deserve another tax...

There were 3 accidents (=traffic jams) on the way back, so I didn't have time to refuel (I had a flight to catch).

I had used exactly half of the fuel, and they wanted almost $200 for it....

I asked them whether I can sign for payment (they iron the credit card), and I will see if the check-in goes smoothly I'll return to refuel, but they didn't let.

As I spoke english to them,they figured  that I don't understand the slang they speak, so they started making fun of me; so I stood for some 10 minutes before the door and scared customers away. (between 2 and 30 seconds walk you have different rental companies).

I must say that I was pretty successful at it  ;-D

They finally apologized and begged me to stop.

actually the rental company has to cover up to state minimum (in NY state it can be like $10-20, most states it's like 1/4 of that) and you're still on the hook for anything above that. Liability they sell you is Suplemental (from state min. to 1 million or something)

otherwise you're correct; if you do anything stupid they can come after your assets for the remainder of the damage

(with no assets, can they send it to collections (credit damage)/charge future earnings?)

If you dont have any assets, chances are that they wont even go after you...

No credit card covers liability.
im referring to the premium car rental insurance that you buy, not whats covered from the card

CDW from a credit card covers that.
