Topic Wiki

There are no Credit Cards that will cover Liability.
Visa, Amex, MasterCard and Discover will cover Loss Damage Waiver / Collision (CDW/LDW)

Cards that cover CDW/LDW in Israel:
Chase: Sapphire Preferred ($95 annual fee)
American Express Gold $195AF
Discover (accepted in Israel as Diners' Club): More, Open Road, Miles, Motiva (none have annual fees)   Policy link

You must present at the time of rental a copy of your policy or a document from the CC company stating that the insurance coverage applies to Israel . You will still have to purchase 3rd Party Liability, but you will save some shekels and have no deductible for damages.

Visa phone number : 800-VISA-911

Visa does NOT cover:
  • Cadillac Escalade
  • Mercedes GL series (they do cover GLK)
  • Mercedes E class
  • Corvettes
  • Camaro ZL1

AMEX premium will charge $24.95 per rental and they cover:
  • Up to $100K for damage or theft and accidental death or dismemberment coverage ($250,000 for California residents), up to $15,000 for excess medical expenses per person, and up to $5,000 for excess personal property coverage ($15,000 for Florida residents)
  • Any car from Mercedes, pickup trucks, Porsche and 15 passenger vans.
  • There's no need to pay for the full amount with money, even if it's with points or coupon rental and you pay just $2 fees they will still cover you.

For a car rental in the U.S which is better for insurance/protection. Amex Gold Premier or Chase Reserve?   Also, I cant seem to find a straight answer, if the C.C is in my wifes names, but I am down as the driver, is it covered?

 I added on the premium Amex Rental Insurance being that my rental was broken into and my Tefillin and Sheitlach plus a duffel bag full of clothing were stolen. I opted into the premium car rental after the police report (and after obviously the rental started), but before I payed (dropped off) for the vehicle.

Amex Premium covers up to $10,000 in personal property theft in this plan. Does anyone have any experience with this? Please advice if you have had to deal with this.This is like $8,000 loss with out exaggeration. Will they cover the loss of property or just claim that because I wasn't enrolled from the beginning of the rental, they will not cover it.

Sorry for your loss, where you charged the $24 fee from Amex for the premium coverage?

Some car rentals in Europe don't have an option to rent without any CDW and you're automatically covered with a large deductable, does that mean there's no way to get coverage with a cc?

I remember seeing somewhere on forums about some credit card that has liability included in it, maybe from a year ago or so, but cant find it at the moment (tried searching thru google obviously).
Any idea what credit it is?
It definitely wasn't an american bank, I think it was an English bank, but not sure...
thanks

If one takes Liability from the rental company, is damage to a rental car still covered by amex?
