Yes.  Just get a letter from M/C and present it at car rental place.

What credit line does it require?

Avis takes a deposit of $800-$1000. Other rental companies do similar. So you'll need at least that much.

And what about the Barclaycard Arrival?
http://www.barclaycardarrival.com/premium-travel/?REFERRERID=IM247877091&campaignId=1730&cellNumber=9

This is what it says in the benefits guide:
Where you are covered:
In general, coverage applies worldwide, but there are exceptions:
> You may be unable to receive benefits in Australia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, and
New Zealand. Please contact your vehicle rental agency before you travel.

If you have a sp wmc do you need this letter?
Is it better to have?
What's easiest way to obtain?

IME, Avis and Hertz have never actually demanded the letter itself. If you want to be extra safe, you can always call the number on the back of your card, and ask for the Benefits Administrator, then ask him/her/it to email it to you. B'shaas hadchak, you can then show it to the rental place on your iPhone.

I always call and get the letter from MasterCard when I go to Israel. It was interesting that I was in israel for Pesach and am going again next week- when I called this week for a new letter they said the original one was good for 60 days. If course total rental cant be more than 31 days.

World MasterCard rental coverage in israel.
« Reply #316 on: April 24, 2013, 09:02:38 AM »
I have a ink bold that says its a MasterCard world elite, and both chase and MasterCard told me that they don't cover collision in israel. Any ideas? I was under the impression that all world mastercards cover that?

Supposedly Barclay has taken over benefits on their cards and it's no longer provided by Mastercard World :(
Feel free to call and confirm that.
