Update. I just checked again and the car rental benefit that excludes exotic or fancy cars like Mercedes or Porsche, only applies to the Sapphire preferred Card, not the Reserve card. The RC includes coverage up to 75K for any (most) vehicles.

If you purchase premium amex card rental insurance there is a option to for coverage for cars up to 100k market value. It should cover exotic cars from what I know. Anyone else have input?

Looking to rent an 8 seater.

Which company carries them?

I have Hertz president's circle and national executive elite.  Could I expect to find something in the aisle?

Any help would be appreciated

In EWR
National- U can find minivans but usually wont have suburbans
Hertz - Will many times have suburban size vehicles.

U can make two reservations and when u get there you'll see what's available...

Can you use a code with a car rental while booking it through the chase portal and using UR points?
