I was recently reading the "Island Car Rental" Terms and Conditions and I found the following statements:

Hi Beth, first off, not sure if you mean a car or a truck? A truck is not covered by "most" CC companies, while a car is. If you are renting a car, then just use your own insurance, not sure about theft though, so better read your policy too for your CC insurance.

debbie's right. very few credit card companies cover trucks. i've heard amex does but i don't have experience with them. if you're trying to avoid having to get insurance you'd be better off renting a jeep or a van. but look at the bottom line...sometimes the base rental of a jeep or a van is equal to the rental of a truck including cdw.

It is my belief that most of the rental agencies are self insured. So their policies will vary widely.

I contacted my credit card company regarding trucks and you are right, trucks "of any kind" are not covered....but then I contacted my insurance company and found out that we are fully covered for a rental truck in Bonaire, including theft.

beth, that's great that your insurance company will cover you. on our first trip to bonaire we thought we were covered but found out after we got home that we weren't...car, not truck. it was on our third trip that we rented a truck and found out just before leaving for bonaire that visa did not cover trucks
