Nova Rent a Car: a 20,000 Euro hold?!?!

Anyone rented with Nova Rent a Car before? I emailed them regarding insurance and hold deposits. This what they told me:

"If your credit card company provides you with insurance you don`t need to select it with us, simply choose standard rental rate as you have already done. In that case amount blocked on your credit card for deposit purpose will be in the market value of the car. That would be some 20000€ approximately for your respective car group"

Seriously, a 20,000 Euro hold on my credit card?!?!

Please advise anyone who has rented with them before? What was your experience? Is this simply to force you to purchase their premium insurance?

Are you trying to book with no insurance from them whatsoever? Usually the amount blocked is the same as the excess on the insurance.
