CSR at sapphire WMC  informed me this morning that they no longer cover CDW in Israel.
I asked to speak to a manager and she confirmed.
Can anyone debunk this?
just called and confirmed SP WMC CDW works in Israel, letter in the mail to me

I  recieved t&c for wmc in mail today. It excludes Israel and is not primary.
I don't think citi preferred mc excludes israel and it has no foreign exchange fee

I just called citi regarding my Aadvantage visa card. They said its a world card and it covers Israel.

Also, interesting to note, they benefits are provided by "citi insurance services", not visa.

If I convert my Sapphire Preferred visa to a preferred mastercard, will it cover israel, like dan wrote on the main site, or is that not the case?

I just returned a car here in Israel that was rented and insured with my SP WMC.

You're sure it was CDW coverage?

Yup. I called mastercard before and they told me if the rental company accepts it then as far as they're concerned I'm covered. They said the reason the credit cards come with those disclaimers (saying "might not be covered") is because the rental companies might not accept it but if they do then you're covered. Iv'e rented from both hertz and avis here and they accepted CDW from the WMC. However the other insurance that WMC usually covers (I forgot what it's called now) they won't accept and you have to take it from them.

My friend rented from Avis Israel using a Visa Signature without taking CDW (by mistake), and they let it through. As someone who is at 3 times a week, I've heard them say more than once that it's not automated - it is up to the customer to know their card covers CDW or not.

As for the "other insurance" you have to take... that is LI (liability insurance), which no CC covers. Ever.

Sorry... :P

Consider it debunked - I just got my check in the mail two weeks ago for a claim filed for an accident in Jerusalem at the end of April.
