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.

You have to do now (within 60 days?)
They can not do it, did you file a incident report at Hertz?

Im hoping someone can help me out!
I rented a porsche thru the Lufthansa first class offer on my chase Sapphire reserve.
Upon rental they have you sign a bunch of papers such as that you won't race etc. One of them is a blank page that showed no damage. The car was literally in a pitch black parking lot and it appeared as no damage. When I returned the car 3 hours later they checked it with a magnifying class and claim a minor scratch in a weird place (couldn't have been from an accident). They immediately photographed it and sent me an email with a bill for $600 + today another Pending charge of $400.
Do I have any recourse?
1) I don't think chase reserve covers a Porch?
2) Am I screwed because I signed the paper that has no damage? (it was impossible to see, and the scratch was in such a remote place I probably wouldn't have seen it anyway).
3) It literally appears to be a scam because the car rental return person when directly to the scratch with chalk already in his hand to "circled it", but Im sure there is no way to see if they have charged other people for the same damage?

Rent the same car again and you will find out if they do this same scam again.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Any other options? Try disputing the CC but I'm assuming I will loose because I signed the "no damages"? Should I try filling a claim or will be automatically denied because it is a porsche?
