Your card and your regular insurance will generally suffice, especially a top line card like Amex. But overseas things can get hinky. I took the insurance from Sixt on my last big rental in Croatia, mostly in case we detoured into Bosnia. We didn’t realky but there was one 10 click stretch on the coast where there was no choice. But in Germany you should be fine, unless Weirdling pulls you over. If your a Yank you can expect a dry cavity search.

As far as the insurance goes, it seems to be perfectly fine to use as primary coverage overseas and won't be any issue. I figured since people here likely travel very often to/from Europe somebody could offer sound advice.
Here in the US, I agree, I just decline and use my personal insurance which covers it.
