Easyway Options... Are they trying to trick up with this one

OK, this might seem "tricky" but I need to know before I book.

This is copied from http://www.easywayrentacar.com/step2.php web site.

My question is:

Yes, I know to choose all options for insurance. They have an option (below) I can choose, the "Drive and Save option" BUT, it does not include the option I have highlighted directly below.

Should I also be choosing this option?

***************************************************************************************************************

Supplement for Extra Protection Cover (EPC) = 0 % Deductible ( + the cost of the CDW). $5

for 9 days = $45.00

***************************************************************************************************************

DRIVE SAFE & SAVE MONEY!

We Offer You: CDW, TP, ALI & PAI for only: $ 162 USD

The bundled coverage does not seem to include zero deductible EPC . It is an extra charge . This is and has been the case when I have researched previously . I haven't used them previously as they have always been more expensive when comparing apples to apples in terms of the three coverages I value , public liability , collision and zero deductible regarding damages to others in a foreign legal system .

The up side of the Easyway collision is that the deductible is very reasonable and I've never read of false chipped window or other unethical claims regarding honesty that the zero deductible can help protect against elsewhere .

The Easyway coverage is clearly stated and may be just a little tricky , as you say . Tricky enough that many people have made false assumptions regarding EPC coverage in the past but had no claims and so no reason to find out , luckily , as with most insurance everywhere .

The local competition Tulumcarrental did not include EPC either , when I last checked but their brother company , Americacarrental , did . The totals were close but they were expressed differently and America has changed wording a few times in the last two years .

In either case they were significantly less than Easyway . Service , trust , reliability , those are separate issues and people have favourites .
