Travelling to Spain next week (PTO). Should I pay for collision damage waiver for my rental car? Worth it?

Check your credit card, maybe it already covers some insurance, like chase sapphire reserve.. also check your company code maybe it has collision waiver

Thanks A1 - credit card doesn't and I'm not sure the company code is valid since I'm traveling for pleasure, not business.

Try looking for the car to rent on an European/ Spanish Site, for example try kayak.es (make sure they don’t divert you back to US), usually there are great deals and some of them include collision damage waiver ... otherwise it depends on how risk adverse you are, there are a lot less accidents in Spain than in the US, but if you’re not used to driving a stick and have never driven in Europe, I would get it just for peace of mind ...

Just sign up for a card they had it and zero foreign transaction fees. Problem solved, welcome

So not to syxt. They tried to screw me after the fact and send a letter asking for a check or my credit card #

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
