Tips for Car Rental Israel
During the summer months and the holiday periods, make sure you make your reservation in advance, even months ahead.
Make sure you check your car together with the agent to note any scratches or bumps. Also check if the air conditioner, radio and CD player are working fine.
Before traveling double check the validity of your driver’s license.
Try to rent a car on a weekly basis since it is less expensive than a daily rate. Sometimes renting a car for 4 days is more expensive that renting it for a week.
If you have an Israeli passport you will have to pay 17% VAT (taxes). Maybe your travel partner is not an Israeli, so rent the car on her name.
Check in advance about insurance and all the coverage.
If traveling with children, be aware that in Israel there are laws regarding the ages at which they must be seated in a child safety device. If you should need one, make sure to order it in advance.
