@squawk7700 if you are collecting the car from an airport, the only thing I have found is that adding whatever they insist you add with the central office in the country rather than at the airport saves a lot as it saves all the extra airport charges. In Mexico with Hertz, it’s 35% cheaper to do this as once they add whatever extra they insist upon, it reprices everything with airport charges/fees/taxes as part of the scam.

Thanks again, you are a fountain of knowledge!

I guess if I go back to re-book the car (normally using the US version of Europcar/Hertz website) but then add the CDW and PAI to the quote, and pay upfront online, that should work….? Annoying having to do this when Amex should cover everything, but seems I Have no choice….

Rate to add CDW and PAI online is $275USD for a week. I imagine I could get stung for much more adding it at the branch!
