Subject: Re: Car rentals in Italy

We've used AutoEurope in Europe as well; the issue with CDW is not that you're gold or platinum card won't pay it in certain countries (Italy for one); it's just that in said countries, purchasing CDW from the rental company is legislated and therefore mandatory, even if you have other insurance such as that provided through your credit card issuer. If you're renting in more than 1 country, I'd check this out first.
