    Answered Best Travel Sim card?

    Just bought a new iPad Pro that has an imbedded apple sim in addition to the usual sim slot.

    rental car insurance in the US

    thanks - from my investigations so far, booking directly with Avis (at Jackson Hole) is much more expensive than the others - I didn't see Avis offered on the aggregator sites that I looked at.

    rental car insurance in the US

    Given that the "excess" car rental insurance available with Australian travel insurance policies doesn't cover collision damage and other liability when renting a car in the US (only any "excess") - is there an Australian-based insurance company that will provide this cover? in the same or a...
