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.

Did you bother trying to read through the last few pages of the thread, instead of making other people take their time to write it out again and clutter up the thread?

and if u don't have google and no one from the dedicated ddf response team gets back to you within 24 hours, just call the number on the back of your card. (plz keep this method a secret, don't spread it amongst all ur friends)

did you bother reading the question in its entirety?  Do the last pages of this thread address whether the non-annual fee version of United Mileage Explorer provides primary CDW insurance?

Well, it doesn't as discussed. Double check the terms on the Chase website.

 Hi there. I've looked over the past few pages and cannot find the answer. I'm leaving to go fly out of Melbourne Australia for one week in November. I have the platinum business American Express card.  It states in the guidelines that this card does not cover rental car coverage in Australia. Which credit cards will cover a car? Should I do the damage waiver?

Chase cards, or Mastercard world cards should cover.

The same questions are being asked over and over.

rented a jeep in Jfk Hertz for the week on points and used freedom for the airport fees. hit a tree, some major damage, can I pay at the end of the rental with a UA card and get the primary insurance to cover instead of my personal policy, or they will see the original freedom on the contract?

It won't help at this point.

Rented a minivan in Vancouver BC returning tomorrow in the US. Used amex platinum didn't add the premium coverage
Any way to add that now?
Or would my car insurance not cover since we started in Canada making the secondary from amex, primary?
