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.

That's good news I guess.
You never agreed on a fix amount, should be easier to dispute.
thanks.

And on a side note even though your app gave it a 7.4 rating, I still shouldve done my due diligence...
Overall an amazing APP which I plan on still using! (Already did yesterday)


For a while I got into the habit of snapping a few quick pics when picking up a rental car as a precaution ( except at my local branch, they never checked my car ).

Hope your successful with your dispute.
I always take a walk around before. In this case It was a black van in a pitch dark garage! I noticed a few scratches and those were on the contract already.
I obviously missed the others (probably because they were so small.)
Will have to wait and see how much they charge I'm assuming they'll manage to up the damage to exactly the 1000euro I had put on hold ::).
And start the dispute then.

When I was planning to rent a car in Italy, I saw reviews of several car rentals that charged for existing scratches, and most people, like nafnaf12, didn't have proof that they didn't make the scratches.
So I didn't rent from one with such reviews. And I went around the car with the agent when I picked it up and had him mark down every minor blemish.  And I took pictures from all angles.

Can I ask you how much the charge is.
I just checked my account and I don't see the hold on the account. And it's not in my pending (from what I see) would change the card number (report lost/stolen) work to avoid getting charged at all?

Possibly, say it's lost and let them change the card number.

For people that are EU residence, or can say they are, I can arrange car rental insurances worldwide.

If I redeem UR points for a car rental any way to still get coverage from CC?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.
