Get the coverage that covers driver-fault curb rash. I curbed a wheel hard 2k miles in, got it repaired for free. Has happened two more times as well since. I prefer the peace of mind.

This is absolutely true. Take a debit card and use an ATM. Be mindful, though, many debit cards will only allow ~$400 (less in Euros) to be yanked per day.
