Quick question here:
I'm off to SXM next week and we're going to get a car for the four days that we're there. The only thing that I hear endlessly about traveling to SXM is that cars are broken into all the time and that the insurance is worth getting. So, I call up the Hertz #1 desk to make the reservation and asked for added insurance. Great $12.00 a day.
However, she tells me at the end that there's a 1,600 Euro deductible that needs to be held on my credit card when I arrive.
I've never heard of an amount this high. Sure 250 euros or maybe even 500, but $2,000 USD?
Is this common?
