Just call noach car rental. They alwats end up not only with great customer service but also the cheapest. For years I use them & the few times that I tried others it never came out better

Not Visa. Visa doesnt cover CDW in Israel.

Is there any Dansdeals guide for this?

Is that something new that Visa doesn't cover CDW? I've been using it for years. In fact I've had many a Time claims also and they paid

What does "worked" mean? Did you need to make a claim?

No but I got a letter from the benifits dept clearly stating with my credit card number that it covers.
In israel many times they don't let you use it unless you have a letter for it

I have made successful claims here in Israel in the past with eclaims line - sapphire reserve - and needed to get them a letter from them prior to renting confirming coverage.
All without a hitch

Probably your specific c.c. stoped the benifit.
Not all cards have the same benifits

Israel is excluded from Amex Premium Car Rental Protection. However, it is included in the standard coverage.

Looking to book a car rental in israel with my Chase points on a Reserve card. Is there any company that is better to use, any to stay away from? Open to picking up at the airport or on King David st. Will there be any additional fees charged by the company, or what i pay with my points is the final price?

How do you obtain the letter needed for CDW waiver? I will be using an Ink Preferred.

Call the benifits dept. Tell them you need a letter specifying your coverage for your card. (Your name & c.c. number)

Budget is pricing out the cheapest for a week rental from the airport. Is there any reason not to use them more then any other company?
