Beware if you rent a car from here in CONUS if you're vacationing in Europe....if you choose NOT to rent via the USAA link....my wife in Munich, and two friends leatned the hard way in Scotland and in Ireland that rental car desks at airports will stick you for 3 x rate paid for insurance! Only via USAA and choosing AVIS can you avoid this switch-a-roo and the fighting with rental car companies! thanks USAA and AVIS!

Apollosmom,

 

Renting vehicles overseas can be a real pain when it comes to them charging for insurance and such.

 

You have to really check you policy to see what your insurance covers when traveling overseas.  If you have a USAA stateside policy it normally will not provide coverage for liability or physical damage when renting cars overseas.
