I'll be doing a two-week US roadtrip next year and have started looking at rental cars out of LAX, and associated insurance. It is indeed a minefield but it does appear that LDW and SLI should be sufficient, combined with 'ordinary' travel insurance to cover all eventualities.
I'll probably end-up going with Budget, they are cheapest by far and do provide the options on-line of including these insurances when you make the booking. On the flip-side though, some reviews on their LAX facility are scathing, long queues, rude staff and always looking to sting you with extra charges.
Has anyone experienced this? Also, Budget offer a pay-now option, i.e. paying on-line in advance rather than at the counter, has anyone used this? How did it work out?
