    Say, has anyone ever used these folks?

    Sounds like it may be a good alternative to the high-pressure LDW and the spotty credit card coverage. $9 per day may be worth it for peace of mind.

    Surf here for info:


    Any comments?

    car Insurance

    Certain credit cards cover accidents and loss of use . My Total rewards Visa , for example , covers ;

    Physical Damage and /or theft
    Valid loss of use charges
    Reasonable and customary towing charges . I know that the American Express card that I had did not cover loss of use .

    I use my American Express card when renting and I signed up for their Premium Car Rental Insurance. You enroll your American Express card and you are only charged when renting a car.

    Below information was copied from their web site:


    One flat rate of $24.95 per rental period, not per day ($17.95 for California Residents)
    Coverage is primary for theft and damage to a Rental Car. You won't have to first file a claim with your personal insurance company which can help reduce the risk of having your personal auto insurance premiums increase*.
    There are no deductibles.
    There is no cost to enroll and your Card will automatically be billed a premium when a Card on your account(s) is used to pay for a car rental until your enrollment is terminated.


    Coverage is worldwide, except for vehicles rented in Australia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, and New Zealand**.
    Coverage is for up to 42 consecutive days (up to 30 consecutive days for Washington State Card Members).
    Coverage automatically extends to your other eligible Accounts when you enroll one of your American Express Card Accounts (e.g. excludes Corporate Cards).
    Covers most vehicles typically available from a Rental Company.


    Up to $100,000 of primary coverage for damage or theft of a Rental Car.
    Up to $100,000 of Accidental Death or Dismemberment coverage ($250,000 for California Residents)***.
    Up to $15,000 for excess medical expenses per person.
    Up to $5,000 for excess personal property coverage ($15,000 for Florida Residents).
    Note: Liability is not included
