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.

Just got approved for arrival for my trip to Israel, so can't call as I did not get the card yet

Any other options except SPMC

SPMC is the best option left.
Who knows when Chase will take it over as well :P

PUTPAC and it's always best if you have a written confirmation from them.

Yes. I was there a few months ago and received a letter in writing. All Citi MC cards that say "World" cover Israel

I did some research and I can also go for spirit WMC from BOA (but will pull in NY TU which Barkley's pulled)

P.S. MC website still has all barkley's cards as WMC but will call when I get the card

At Avis, at least, if you use the right rate codes, it gets billed in USD and there is no forex fee.

There's also a loophole that works sometimes, but that's not for public discussion. ;)

 got a  coverage letter for the Citi Cash Returns WMC. Dont even know if they still market that card, I have it about 6 years no annual fee. You pay the 3% fee but it may be cheaper than keeping the SP MC just for this purpose. Can use other cards for no forex for other expenses.

Has anyone called MasterRental about the Ink cards?
Does the letter of coverage really say it's for business purposes only?

From the Guide to Benefits:

Quote
What type of coverage is this?
Auto rental CDW is primary coverage. In other words, when your rental is primarily for business purposes, you do not have to claim from any source of insurance before receiving coverage under the benefit. However, if you are on a personal trip and you use your Business card to rent a covered vehicle, Business Auto Rental CDW supplements, and applies excess of any valid and collectible insurance or reimbursement benefits from any source. Etc.
It seems you are covered just that it's not primary.

However, unlike other cards that say may not cover in Israel, this one states in bold:
Quote
No benefit is provided for motor vehicles rented in Israel...

Came home and found in the mail my cap one was upgraded to a wmc, which as the previous poster said does cover and has no forex, this seems to be the best alternative to the chase sp mc.

-1

The fact that the rental agency accepts it means nothing - they can't tell the difference between one WMC and another. Heck, I know someone who they let decline CDW/TP on a Visa Signature. :o (B"H he "only" busted a taillight, which he paid for in cash.)

You'd better find out if it actually covers, or you may CH"V be in for a nasty surprise if something happens.
