I rented a car abroad at www.rentalcars.com and also purchased the full coverage insurance.
When i returned the car i bumped into a pole and damaged the car that happened at the last day of the rental . The rental company (one of the biggest ) charged for the damage about 650 dollars. Will the insurance pay the excess that i paid directly to the car rental company ?

According to the Rental Cars Full Protection page:

Our Full Protection waiver product covers damage to all exterior and mechanical parts of the car and has no excess: whatever the car hire company withholds from your deposit for damage, we cover.

That seems pretty clear: they should pay.

However, the wording of the policy document you should have received will be the definitive reference. You should check that carefully.

    Make sure you pay attention to details and respond quickly with required info and documents. They should pay, but don't want to, so don't provide excuses.
