And don't forget the free sunshade and GPS if so inclined to use it from Hertz. You can also stop by to have your car washed and vacuumed at no charge.

Everyone wants a "good deal" but not everyone is willing to do the research to make a fair comparison. I have found little difference between the reputable SXM car rental companies, (many that are sponsors on TTOL).
The "catches" like inflating the liability cost or reducing coverage, inflating the 10% tax or adding other fees like collision that is already covered by your cc, are things to watch for.

I have an American Express and they don't cover liability. What kind of AE do you have?

I also had the same question.
This is the response I got when I googled it.

For one, it's practically unheard of to find a credit card that includes liability coverage. Travel insurance and third-party rental car collision insurance products don't generally offer it, either. Even American Express's fancy Premium Car Rental Protection doesn't touch liability, only damage to the rental car.

I don't. A friend of mine on island has one that does and is here now. Take it for what it's worth. Makes no difference to me as I have liability included in my rental from Hertz.

I do to from Hertz, but I still think your friend is misunderstanding his card.

I have used Hertz for many years. A few years ago I backed the car into a post. There was some minor damaged. They charged me under $100. It wasn't worth going to AMEX to have it covered. In NY it could have been 10 times that. As to the liability Hertz has third party insurance.

I would agree. People are often shocked to find out what is NOT covered once they do some research, read the fine print, call their personal auto insurance carrier (not the agent as they are often misinformed unless they check), etc. Unless they have it in print/writing from the card or company, one should assume there is NO liability coverage.

I would be very interested to know of a credit card that covers liability exposure for third party damage. I have never seen reference to one - not to say it doesn't exist but I would be interested in learning of such a card. Even if you have liability coverage, it will be for a set limit - it doesn't really do you a whole lot of good to know you have "liability coverage" unless you know the limits. Years ago, I thought I heard that a standard liability coverage for a st martin rental car was $50,000 - I think Lesley posted some information on this a while back. My wife is so risk averse that we usually are over insured, in my opinion.

I believe that liability coverage on the island is limited to $50,000 because that's the limit of liability responsibility there. I believe I read that posted here some years ago.
