Thread: Overseas Car Rental Insurance

  1. #1

    Default Overseas Car Rental Insurance

    Does anyone know of anyway that travel insurance, credit card, or other autocar insurance will cover for any damage or loss of rental car overseas? I am trying to do this locally so that I can avoid having to pay the Collision Damage Waiver which costs $20 USD a day. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
    I have a near-mint Olympus E-620 Underwater Case for Sale. PM me for a great deal!

    In the US you don't have to take ALL the insurance ($%^$ rip off).

    OK i am the kiasu one. I top it all up... I dont want to get the third party issue. As far as I checked, travel insurance do not cover the car insurance, but if you hear of otherwise, let me know

    Dollar Express is so far what I have been using as it is not as corporate-ish as Hertz and Express queue is usually express. Free upgrades if you request for it on the spot usually. Please go with a biggie smile and tired face from the jetlag when u request for it. =X

    Some travel insurances cover for rental car excess, but usually max of $500 - $1000. If you dont take the car rental company extra insurance, then you'd be liable for the entire excess, some of which you can claim back thru your travel insurance if you happen to meet with an accident or get conned by the rental car company.

    You may wanna check with your CC company. Some CC covers damage waiver if you use it to rent the car.
