AA visa now covers CDW in israel?
« on: October 21, 2010, 02:10:50 PM »
i recieved today from my AA visa from the curent promo, in which the terms exclude Israel, received a letter from citi regarding "changes in benefits" effective 10/15 which mentions "worldwide car rental coverage" and doesn't mention exception countries.
is it possible that the CDW on this card has been sold off to a new company which doesn't do the standard "Ireland, Israel" exclusion?

I called when I got that mailer and they told me it still excludes Israel from coverage.

Even if I was misinformed (entirely possible) you'll need it in writing that Israel is included in coverage to get an Israeli rental agency to believe it and allow you to waive CDW.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I have a swiss amex platinum and it covers cdw worldwide. By every rental in israel they tell me amex does not cover, but after i tell them the swiss one does, they let me. Never had to show proof. I rented from eldan and avis sukkes
