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.

are you covered if you are an authorized user on someone's cc?
AU is covered if his/her card was used for the rental. If the primary card was used see the discussion a few pages back.

Literally the post above yours... unless I'm misunderstanding your question.

It's still secondary coverage but since your US policy doesn't cover Israel the secondary will be your only option...
In other words. Yes, any card that covers Israel will be primary...

Yes I know that but it still covers and you don't need to actually use it when returning if no damage.

Question on rental car damage reimbursement using Ink Bold in Israel.
Hey there.
Somebody hit my parked car and busted the mirror.
Got all the paperwork and submitted.

Ink Bold will cover all but the assessors fee.
Is that correct?  It is about $100 for that.
Any way to get that fee covered as well?

It was pretty painless except chasing after BUdget for the paperwork. Submitted all the paperwork and a check will be sent.

On another note...Since I still have the Ink Bold, any reason to keep an Ink Plus also?

Thanks
