Re: car hire insurance Updated

One of the worst things about hiring a car is trying to find and figure out insurance. Also, at the moment I do not own a personal car that I'm insured on and to complicate things more I'm renting in Italy.

My US credit card provides CDW, but in the small print it excludes Italy. Next I checked Amex's Premium Protection for rentals - nope, no cover in Italy.

Eventually, I found a insurer that covers residents of Switzerland and provides cover in Italy. It's more expensive than some of the UK sites that sort of suggest they cover Swiss residents, but not when you actually read the terms and conditions it's not clear that they do.

Here's who I am going with:

If anyone had a better suggestion please share

PS mentioned earlier in this thread does not cover residents of Switzerland.
