Default Car Rental Insurance ?

Is there any easy answer to should I get the optional insurance on a car rental in Aruba.

I know in the US, not only will my insurance cover me, but so will many of my credit cars, such as AMEX.

However, I haven't found anywhere that states this is extended to Aruba. The cost of the insurance can quickly add up. So I'd like to save on the insurance without the financial risk of being liable should something go wrong.

Any experts out there?

If you have a Capital One credit card, it will cover the insurance for liability, collision, and comprehensive losses. Just an FYI- Call your CC companies and ask them where and what they cover. Good Luck.

Remember AmEx states you MUST decline ANY extra ins.coverage offered by a car rental agency or you will NOT be covered.

And yes they cover you in Aruba.

I go with the AmEx prem. rental coverage for extra peace of mind.
One time cost of something like $23 per rental NOT per day.

My Bank America card covers insurance. I've had them send a letter stating so before if there's any ? At the car rental. It's a good idea to contact your card company and let them know you'll be using your card outside the country.
