  1. Renting a car in the USA

    We are U.S. citizens living permanently in Germany and plan to visit our homeland, the good ol' USA. We will have to rent a car. Our last experience, some years ago, we rented thru an American firm with one of those credit cards that include collision coverage. But when we picked up the car we were informed we must also buy liability insurance, quite expensive. This time we thought we would rent through a German firm (AutoEurope, thru Opodo), but on reading the small print of the conditions, was the disturbing phrase that the prices and offerings do not apply to citizens of the U.S. or Canada. Komisch!!   What have other Americans done for a car rental when in the States? I would be interested to hear other peoples experiences and advice. Incidently we do not own a car here.
