"Add Allianz Global Assistance Collision Damage Coverage to my rental for $9 per day
Provides up to $40,000 of coverage if your rental car is stolen, or damaged in an accident or while left unattended
Provided as primary coverage so in the event of a loss you may not need to file a claim with your auto insurance carrier
Plan only available to residents of the U.S. Terms, conditions and exclusions apply"

SO the offer is $9 per day for US residents? so if they sign up at the counter is that rate different and does it really cover non US residents?

People outside the US (atleast for Europeans) usually have the following included when they rent a car in the US:
Collision Damage Waiver
Liability Protection (LP) ($1 million liability coverage)

So...usually everything is covered when renting so nothing is needed to buy and whats not covered (personal insurance etc) is covered by travel insurance.
