End of the day, when I get to the counter at SIXT tomorrow with my SP WMC, how much extra will the rental cost me in insurance?

I use my SP WMC three times a week in Israel. ;)

That doesn't mean it actually covers anything - heck, I had a friend whose father insisted that his Visa Signature covers CDW/TP, and they let him sign the waiver. One busted taillight later, he was out a coupla hundred shek.

What does mean it covers anything, is if the card's benefits administrator confirms that it does - and in the case of the SP WMC, we have many such confirmations.

Ink cards are only for bona-fide business rentals though IIRC.
correct. but so is general spending on the card (officially)  ;)

True... but putting personal expenses on a business card will not cost you many thousands of dollars.

Having MasterRental deny your claim for a totaled rental car because you made a personal rental on a business card will.

Can someone please post the link to sign up for Sapphire World Mastercard?  Or another card that doesn't charge foreign transactions fees and that covers the insurance for car rental in Israel?  I can only find the sapphire visa link.  Does the Freedom world mastercard charge foreign transcation fees?

You can sign up for the visa and then request to have it converted to an MC.

IME AUs are covered with all cards. Regardless, best is to have it in writing just in in case C"V something happens.
