I very much doubt that third party liability exposure is limited to such a low amount - or, limited to any set amount. Under applicable law in the Netherlands, I believe that car owners have to have third party liability coverage which is hundreds of thousands, at least. Of course, knowing Dutch law in the Netherlands does not necessarily tell you what the law is in Sint Maarten. If you accidentally injure or kill someone while driving a car on the island, I would believe that you are exposed to far greater possible liability than $50,000.

If I remember reading correctly, Hertz provides liability coverage of $100,000 per person and $300,000 per accident.

$400.00 deductible.

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




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.



Talked to him again and he pays $29.00 to get world wide liability coverage on his AE card. He wasn't sure if it was for the year or month.

Thanks for the update.

I did some quick checking and all I could find was some American Express Premium Rental coverage for around the price you mentioned. It is priced PER rental but does NOT include liability.

Perhaps there is another plan but I have been unable to find anything like you/your friend referred to that does cover liability.

I have scoured the internet, I can't find any provider that says it covers liability. Even all the AMEX products. I would love to know what exact Amex product they use as it specifically says liability is not covered

Amex used to have a plan where, for $15 per rental period, they would cover liability if you paid for the rental with your Amex card. The $15 fee was added as soon as the rental was charged to the card. They had a similar plan for trip cancellation and/or delay, and lost baggage. This was on the Blue Cash card, which had no annual fee. It's been several years since we've used that card, so I don't know if it's still available.
