"My question is - are there any "gotchas" here? Would I truly be better off paying extra for the collision damage waiver? Any advice would be appreciated."

I had a similar question for my insurance agent a while back. He said not to bother with the rental car company's extra insurance in that I am indeed insured up to the limits of my own policy when driving a rental car. The extra coverage provided by your credit card is probably a bit of frosting. (Don't know about rentals in foreign countries.)
