I'm planning a solo travel trip to Brussels and was wondering if any American / US Drivers license holders have experience booking an airport car rental through Expedia or similar. Currently, I reserved a car for $165/week, with unlimited mileage - I plan to drive around Belgium within a 1 hour radius and after a few days, drive to Netherlands.
I did not add collision insurance and have a pretty comprehensive American insurance coverage. Is there anything additional I should consider? My only concern is being forcefully 'upsold' or taken advantage of at the counter upon arrival or being told they cannot offer me the car at the Expedia reserve price. Was wondering if anyone can share their experience renting a car in Europe with an American DL / Passport.
Note, the car company I used was Hertz, which is pretty well known, so I don't expect any surprises, but would like to be well-prepared should anything come up.
