I have car hire insurance. But when booking a car in Israel all companies have always forced me to take an insurance from them. I've never been able to get the price that Kayak shows, which can be around 10 USD per day. The insurance ends up costing more than 10 USD per day, and always more than the cost of the car rental itself. And because I have my own rental car insurance I don't need the company's insurance.
One company told me that it's possible to get the car without their insurance if you have a US credit card. I'm not planning to get an American credit card, so I'm wondering if there another way to get an Israeli rental car without the insurance?
