I had a little disagreement with a palm tree in our rental car while we were on vacation in Hawaii.  First Day – what a bummer!  Then I remembered that if you rent a car with a Platinum VISA card , they have extra insurance coverage that is automatically included.  The application is conveniently online. I had to FAX in the paperwork from the rental agency and my primary insurance.  Within 2 weeks, I had a check that covered my deductible, and the “loss of use” charges from the rental company, and $100 of their admin fees.

This coverage would work for business travel, too, and every little bit helps the bottom line for any business.
