I hate that hard sell shit you have to go through when you rent a car. My company uses National, thankfully, we "skip the counter" all the time and don't deal with that crap. I think our contract with National has us protected from those types of accidents. But when we have to use another service, I usually just say yes, whatever, give me whatever you want and let me get the hell out of this airport.
I thought all credit cards automatically gave you rental car insurance like that, almost every article I've read praising credit cards lists the rental car insurance as a reason. But the asshole at Enterprise or whatever one time told me my credit card didn't cover anything. I felt like he was lying to me there, but I just bought the insurance anyway to get the hell out of there.
