Living or Working Overseas: Part 6 – Car Rental Insurance Reductions – For US and Non-US Licensed Drivers

Disclosure: We get a commission for links on the blog. You don’t have to use our links, but we’re very grateful when you do.  American Express is a Million Mile Secrets advertising partner.  Here’s our Advertiser Disclosure.

This series of posts is written by the Wandering US Expat, who’s lived in Australia and Panama.  And applied for cards from there!

Don’t let living abroad stop you from getting miles and points bonuses from credit cards!

But many US citizens and ex-permanent residents, known as expats, often wonder whether they can still get credit cards if they leave or have already left the US.  Perhaps they’ve relocated for a job or have gone for an extended trip abroad.  Some expats have left permanently to start a new life.
