Next time I'll remember. It would have saved me a good 20% over what I ended up paying.>>>Renting a car with a credit card is an excellent point to bring up! I *always* use a credit card when renting a car (even in Aruba!). However, you always need to call your credit card company to verify what is and isn't covered as far as the insurance goes. I've found that a gold card will always have superior advantages, and always seems to cover the insurance on car rentals. Although most personal insurance companies will cover car rentals, not everyone wants to take the chance of putting in a claim on their insurance if it can be avoided, and often personal car insurance won't cover car rentals outside of the United States. However you do it, my experience has been to save a bundle by always declining the extra insurance from Car Rental Companies. It's very expensive, and they'll do everything to get you to take it--that's how they make the big bucks. Check out what YOUR card offers!TMF 2Aruba......but I still am...Off2Aruba
