They might give you a qx80 but not an escalade, and if they are willing to give you the caddy they will want a copy of your personal car insurance where it says that you're covered for rental cars also and only then will they allow you to rent it. The same goes for all the real expensive luxury cars, they told me the only way they will rent it to you without the copy of your insurance is if the car is in the isle.

If anyone has any other work arounds for the insurance requirment please share it.
I've gotten Cadillac (XT5) BMW etc. not from aisle and i've never had this issue.

Well i wanted to know if they would give it to me anyway. I am also EE if that makes a difference
In Cleveland airport I didn't see anything I liked from the emerald aisle (they basically only had standard cars and pickups. I spoke to the agent who looked up my EE status and he basically put some note on the tag that is hanging in the luxury cars and said to show to the gate agent to get it for free.

I am renting with a Chase Freedom card. Is that good enough?
Also, i wanted liability, so I am being added onto an existing policy of a family member which includes rentals. Is that ok?

The luxury cars that have this requirment are the ones that require a $1000 hold on the card. The xt5 doesn't require and bmw 5 series and up require it

No because it doesnt give you primary insurance

What about being added onto an existing insurance policy of a family member for their car(that they own). Its supposed to cover rentals as well

So how does anyone ever rent escalades from national or hertz without buying insurance? Most people use CC insurance, and they usually dont cover luxury vehicles

Picked up fro MIA yesterday around 3:30. Only vehicle larger than sedan at EA was pickup truck. Manager said because itís so busy larger cars are being held for those with reservations only. Had to give $20 to one of the guys moving the cars just for a minivan  >:(
