For international rentals, this benefit is primary, and covers the rental vehicle for physical damage, vandalism and theft. Coverage does not apply to lost or stolen personal belongings, injury to anyone, medical expenses, or personal liability. You may rent the vehicle for up to 31 consecutive days per contract. And you must report damages to Card Benefit Services within 45 days of the incident. Coverage is not available in Jamaica, Ireland or Israel. It is not available where it is prohibited by law or by individual merchants, or is in violation of the territory terms of the rental agreement.
Please note: Regulations vary outside the United States, so we recommend that you check with your auto rental company before you travel to make sure this benefit will apply.
If you happen to be renting a vehicle in Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica or Italy, please note: often the purchase of a minimum level of collision damage coverage is mandated in these countries. In that case, your benefit is supplemental to that required coverage.
