Actually, we once experienced some hidden charges with AutoEurope.
I think all car rental places are pretty similar in that way. Save all your receipts.
I don't think we've ever purchased any kind of insurance when renting a car, either in Europe or the States.
We did the International Driver's license thing once, I think. It might have been for Ireland. Other than that, nada.

Just wanted you to be sure to buy the coverage if it wasn't provided elsewhere.

What do you do about your health coverage or accident coverage while you are traveling internationally? Just curious..

My health insurance covers you internationally, but I would have to pay for the treatment I receive and then get reimbursed. (He he, once again where the Amex comes in handy ;-)

For minor stuff, a doctors visit is often so cheap it isn't worth it. I've got to docs in Thailand and South Africa and they only charged a few bucks.

That's awesome glad to hear that your policy provided coverage! It's just good to check to make sure before something happens and you find out you have no coverage.

I'm also wishing I could travel to all those wonderful places.

Have a great day!!
