AND if you want to visit the Welt you can just book your own trip without ED either way you are not saving anything.
Canada has never had a discount for ED.
So the only thing we get out of it is a free car x (few) weeks free insurance while in Europe.
Which actually adds up to something, as renting a car like an M3 is quite expensive. And enjoying the autobahn and alpine roads (like Stelvio, Grossglockner, etc.) with an el cheap rental is kinda sucky. Plus the fact that cars like the M3 - considered "luxo/exotic" are usually not covered under the usual credit card insurance plans, so you have to foot for the rental company's insurance (at least a few hundred EUR)
