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.

Not a code, a physical GC. I guess I will call and ask them.
Also, if I need the coverage for some reason, I will be left with the GCs (since I need to order them) so maybe I should suck it up and just pay for the rental. Its worth the few hundred $$ for the rental for a 9 night trip to Hawaii  ;)

Any card will cover that with all companies. That's what CDW is.
(As long as you're eligible, according to the T&C)

Any deductible?
Never heard of a card that has a deductible. Some cards won't cover specific things. I.E. depreciation, loss of use etc.
But it depends on how the rental company breaks down the charges. To be sure, read the benefits guide of your card. It'll take you 2 minutes.

Do you need TP(theft protection) and SLI(Supplemental Liability Insurance)
when renting a car in Israel?  or is SLI enough?

I know CDW is covered by Chase CC or WMC

TP and LI are required.
TP is covered by CCs.
CCs don't cover LI. You will be required to pay for it. (unless it's already included in your rate)

(I don't know if Israeli companies offer SLI, but the required minimum is relatively high)

Who're you advertising for?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
