Hertz Points redemption rental insurance
If I were to redeem Hertz points for car rental, how can I protect myself in terms of insurance? Do you recommend using certain credit card or buying insurance from Hertz? Please note I don’t personally have a car. Thank you.
hi Schou, There seems to be a ton of conflicting information out there.
TPG has an interesting note about AmEx: [URL]https://thepointsguy.com/2016/03/points-miles-loyalty-guide-hertz-gold-plus-rewards/[/URL]
There is also an FT thread:
and then the Hertz guidelines:
If you have a card that provides auto insurance I would call them and request to be transferred over to the insurance department and question them about your specific needs and get the name of the person giving you the answer and that they put a note in your record. If the answer is not to your liking then your only choice would be to but the insurance that Hertz offers. Good luck and feel free to share what you find!
