Which means that all you save is about $2 a day from my experience.
Personally I think that AmEx is still the way to go even w/o insurance coverage and the 2% foreign currency charge. Having been messed over by Israeli car rental companies (namely Sixt), it would have been easier to sort it out through AmEx (*wood of course)

its more than $2/day and if nothing happens you could settle your bill with cash if you don't want to pay the higher percentage (or maybe even with an amex). all in all it's definitely worth it to use an mc world
