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.

US credit cards never cover liability.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Rented a car on Friday from Enterprise with my UA Explorer (Domestic rental).  Someone hit it while it was parked today, but left their info.  I went to return it and Enterprise insisted on calling Geico to report it even though I had the claims department from Chase on the line telling them not to, and they're primary.  Enterprise claims they ONLY deal with the insured direct auto insurance.  What did I do wrong?

which chase cards provide primary Collision coverage in the US?  all or just the high end ones like chase sapphire preferred; what about the non annual fee mileage Explorer?
