All Citi, Chase and Discover cards provide global coverage. Ireland, Israel and Jamaica are the most common exclusions among other issuers.
With the summer travel season heating up, countless consumers will soon face a question they have little idea how to answer: Would you like to purchase supplemental rental car insurance? To help travelers give a money-saving response, WalletHub released its 2017 Credit Card Rental Car Insurance Study, which compares the coverage that we automatically receive from plastic.
A few highlights:
- Best Credit Cards – Citi credit cards have the most favorable rental car insurance policies.
- Avoid Renting – A truck, open-bed vehicle, exotic/antique car, large van or full-size SUV if you want credit-card coverage, as many cards exclude them.
- Coverage Duration – Almost 39% of cards only cover domestic rentals for up to 15 days.
- Country Exclusions – All Citi, Chase and Discover cards provide global coverage. Ireland, Israel and Jamaica are the most common exclusions among other issuers.
