I want to rent a car and use my Arrival points, but Barclaycard does not cover CDW in Israel.  Is there a work around? If not, where can I find  a list of cards that do cover CDW in Israel?

Put the rental on a card that does cover CDW and when you return the car tell them you want to pay with a different card.

They can do whatever they want. It's Israel. But I've done it and seen it done. Even in israel.

Anyone remember which companies?

As of now, the only card I have that I'm aware  that covers CDW is Freedom.  Definitely don't want to charge that.

Try to get it in writing, some rental companies here request it for cards they're not familiar with.
