Credit cards & rental car coverage

Posted: Updated:

I am going to focus on the different credit card networks: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. reports…

  • Every one of the networks provide some type of car rental insurance coverage.
  • However, Mastercard is the only one that does not provide coverage on all of its cards.
  • All require the entire car rental purchase to be charged to the card.
  • In order to qualify for the card's insurance coverage, you must decline supplemental insurance and collision damage waivers offered by the rental company.
  • None cover rentals of exotic, expensive, or antique cars. Nor do they cover trucks, open beds, or off-road vehicles.
  • They do not include rentals that exceed the specified time limits, as well as certain country limitations.
