Ireland Car Rental (World MC again)

Jump to last reply

I tried tacking this onto an older message with no response. Here's hoping a separate posting will work.

I have a car reserved with Dan Dooley for August with CDW and I plan to add the super CDW from insurance4carhire.com. I was going to take the easy, but expensive route but I thought I'd have a go with the World MC route to save ~€150 (a nice chunk).

My understanding from previous posts for my Capital One World (5466) card:

1) CDW coverage likely by MC but I need to call MC ASSIST to confirm since Ireland "may not be covered"
2) I need to decline CDW from Dan Dooley to have MC cover the car
3) I can still get supplemental insurance (tires, etc.) through a 3rd party (right?)
4) I may still be charged a chunk ($1000-2000) to cover the car when I arrive, but the letter of coverage will help avoid that.

Does that have it covered?

Question: anyone have a way to contact MC ASSIST that isn't an 800 number (I'm living in the UK at the moment . . )?

And does living in the UK somehow invalidate any of this? My address with Capital One is still in the US . . .
