Subject: Re: Car rentals in Italy

We usually rent from Auto Europe when in Europe & have been pleased with them.

We have found that some credit cards (gold & platinum included) do not cover the CDW in Italy or Ireland. Before a trip, we check all of our credit cards to see if any of them offer the coverage & bring the coverage info with us when we go to rent the car. For one trip a couple of years ago, for example, Amex & Visa (both platinum) wouldn't cover Ireland, but Mastercard would.

I hope this helps.

Have fun! Valerie in the San Francisco Bay Area
