Just wrote an SM to confirm coverage in Israel under SP World MC and they said I have secondary coverage. Isnt it supposed to be primary?

Well if you don't have insurance in israel then it doesn't matter, does it?

Sorry I dont quite understand. My insurance here wouldnt be sought after first? What would happen if CH''V something happens during the rental.

As a side note, are there still cards that offer primary in Israel if this one doesnt?

Here's how it works:

Even credit cards that only provide secondary coverage -  they will cover as primary when in a location/country that you're primary insurance doesn't cover you. 

Obviously if the cc excludes certain countries,  it will not cover a secondary or as a primary.

As far as your  primary car insurance -  chances are they do not cover out of the USA + CA.  Check your policy.

Thanks for the info I didnt realize that. So what you guys are saying is that, in effect, since my car insurance probably doesnt cover me there, this is as if it's primary insurance. And I assume, this is the best I can do in terms of ccs that cover israel.

What did you end up doing?
On the phone with Chase now and they are telling me it'll take two weeks to send me anything and I need it within 8 days.

There seems to be a difference between the Chase and WMC coverages. WMC coveres up to 9 passenger vehicles while Chase covers only up to 8 passengers.

So if you are renting a 9 passenger van in Israel make sure you have a WMC, because Chase won't work.
