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.

Why 15 days? I believe most cards cover up to a month.

While there are certain cards that only cover up to 15 days domestically that varies by card.

For example the Amex Gold and Chase Sapphire cover up to 30 and 31 days respectively.

Yup
"All" Amex cards cover for up to 30 days (or more, on the Centurion or with premium)
Most World Master Cards are also 30 days
And some Visa Signature also cover 30 days

Amex Premium Car Rental Protection
If you just want to post a link without having different text on it, there's no need to do the whole insert hyperlink thingy.

In this case, I think it's the WWW that threw it off.

You can also just split up the rental into 2 different 1-month reservations.

If my auto insurance does not cover me on rentals, does it make a difference if I use a credit card that has primary or secondary insurance?
