Car rental insurance protects you from any liability that results in death, injury to others or any property damage that is caused while you are driving a rental car in Italy.
In Italy, the law requires that you must carry certain types of insurances: Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection. For your convenience, Auto Europe's rates in Italy include these insurances, as well as fire and third-party liability insurance in order to limit your financial risk in case of an accident or theft. Although a popular option in other European countries, very few credit cards with car rental insurance offer coverage in Italy, making it a necessity to be sure you are properly covered ahead of time.

On top of that, with zero-excess insurance your out-of-pocket deductible is $0 in the unfortunate circumstance you are in a collision or your car is stolen. With generic coverage purchased at the counter you have a higher daily rate and will then have to pay a deductible on top of that.
