Everyone has been warning me of the excessive collision damage waiver charges that must be paid on car rentals in Ireland. According to one web site, certain Platinum Master Cards allow for waivers of these charges but so far I haven't been able to find one. I checked with Chase and they tell me that although these waivers are standard on their cards, they NEVER apply to rentals in Ireland. Has anyone had any luck in obtaining such a waiver? Someone recently told me that the additional insurance can often exceed the cost of the car rental itself!
Appreciate any advice you can give.
