liability insurance for a rental car?

The auto rental companies only appear to offer insurance to cover their vehicle should anything happen to it.
How can I get coverage for myself if an accident occurrs?

How can I get coverage for myself if an accident occurs?

Do you mean coverage that pays for your medical expenses?

Or are you asking about the 3rd party liability coverage? If this, its built in to the rental rate.

In Europe liability insurance is compulsory and included in the rental price. For CDW you can get it through the rental company or a 3rd party provider like Allianz. If your credit card comes with CDW coverage as a benefit, you can use it.

Most companies also some form of personal injury protection.

We have rented cars in the UK and never had to pay the included insurance.
The extra cost is ridiculous.

I always purchase the coverage with my American Express card, which is very reasonable.

The AMEX card coverage, is that the basic coverage through the green card or through their travel services?
