Renting a car at CDG

I'm renting for the first time in Europe. Is it advisable to get all the insurance coverages? My Visa customer service person said that I would have my CDW covered. I still need collision and theft insurance. What is really needed?

The rental agency covers the liability and your credit card covers the rest. Double-check limitations with your credit card company, as the list of exclusions can include some real surprises. For example, AmEx doesn't cover me if I rent a car in Italy, but they are fine if I rent a car in France and drive it in Italy. Go figure.
