How does this work with Citi Thank You Preferred WMC? With the CO PP card I get Avis Presidents club with some benefits. DO I rent the car using the Citi preferred WMC so I don't have to pay the insurance? Can I mix and match? Or should I just try to get them to change my newly arrived CO PP card to a Business card? But it doesn't seem the Business card gives me Avis President's club? I am still confused. Thanks.
Take a deep breath.
CO PP gets you Avic PC.  You don't need to use the CO PP for the rental.  You are free to use the Citi TYP WMC which will cover your CDW in Israel.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

If I understand correctly, if you have a card that covers Israel you can decline CDW+TP, but you have to buy LI. However, if you don't have a card that covers Israel you have to buy CDW+TP, but you do NOT have to buy LI.

For the car I'm looking at (the cheapest automatic in Budget), CDW is $11, TP is $4, and LI is $12.

Does this mean that WMC coverage is only saving you $3 a day, or am I missing something?

TP - theft protection

LI - liability

Why wouldn't you want to buy LI? Is it worth the few dollars more for the liability? My friend wasted over $2000 once because he was cheap.

As far as I  understand, if you buy CDW+TP, liability is already included. Otherwise they would have forced you to buy it.

I am going to Israel for Succos. I was just curious to see if my CITI VISA THANK YOU CARD has rental insurance. Turns out it does. It also covers in Israel. How do I know, I called and they sent me a proof of insurance letter, and explicitly stated it covers in Israel. I can send it to anyone who would like to see it, but I will block out my info.

Can this be? Will the rental places accept?

I just came back from a trip and I was all worried, because I wasn't able to get my Citi ThankYou card in time for the trip. Plus my backup was my HSBC Premier card, but when I called them they said it may exclude Israel and they couldn't provide documentation of coverage. So I went thinking I'd probably have to pay insurance. I used NoachCar and the car was from Hertz. I picked the car up at the airport and the guy took the HSBC Premier card without any questions, so I only had to pay TPPD.

Only problem is that if something had happened, you might have been stuck with the bill

I guess so, but it sounded like the cc company was saying check with the rental company and the rental company was fine with me declining CDW and TP. It's definitely possible I could have gotten messed over but thankfully nothing happened, so it was ok.

My Avis Israel rep said she was familiar with the Thank You preferred card and it covering CDW/TP.

With the difference between the cost of CDW+TP and the cost of LI being so small, it could make sense to buy CDW+TP in any case just for the extra coverage.

Do you forfeit your credit card coverage by buying CDW+TP?
