Car Rental in Nice, Fr

What is the most cost effective rental agency for a day rental (for day trip) when centered in Nice (we are staying in Vieux Nice)?

thank you!

thank you Robert, will do.

I suppose I should call credit card companies myself, but what has been the experience with credit cards (AmEx/MasterCard) as far as recommendation for accepting/declining insurance from the car companies?

I always us the Amex Platinum Business Card for rentals because of the automatic overage. The other Amex cards off the same coverage for $24.95/rental, up to 31 days.

I always decline the CDW. Not needed.

We buy the $24.95 coverage from AMEX as well. It offers more than what you get with the credit card.

I'm curious where you are going. If you just want to drive to Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, etc, using the train is easy and cheap and you avoid the sometimes steep parking fees.

Hi, I rented a car for only USD 59,- in Nice for a day. I used the search engine for Airportcarrental365 who search and compare the best prices at locations around the world: http://airportcarrental365.com/

I don't think it matters about your card, but I think they all never cover you if you accept insurance from the car company, is that your question? But if you did, why would you need the card?

Just make sure it covers you for that, I think all the higher level cards do (Gold/Platinum or whatever), but I don't know about the basic ones.

I have also added the car insurance rider to my travel insurance policy. It isn't usually that much, and I just like being careful.
