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.

Amex gold is 3x points on travel.

Thanks, though i was referring to insurance when renting. If I have an issue later on with the rental, and they do an investigation, I would want to be protected if it is clearly not a business trip.

And here we got another EMES statement.
Amex Gold gives 3X on airfare, not travel.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Grammar and punctuation hall of shame? Lol.

I have no idea what you mean.
I'm just pointing another wrong statement you made: you do NOT get 3X on car rentals by using Amex Gold.

Thanx for pointing it out.

And it has to be bought directly from the airlines, which ends up happening on some 3rd party sites.

Hi there folks, I have a lomdishe shailah:
I'm renting a car for a week, next week,
If my personal insurance doesn't cover collision on my car, is there any point in getting AMEX's rental insurance plan for $25, or should I let me reg cc's (secondary) insurance cover the rental?
IOW, since my own insurance doesn't cover my own car, then the cc will be end up being the only source where to pay for anything, or will the cc will still file a claim with my insurance, and it will still affect my premiums?
