I appreciated the upgraded car that Hodaya provided (a MAZDA 2); we had bad weather (rain) and it was much better to have this model. Thank you very much to the entire staff at the Mamilla Mall location in Jerusalem. R/S, Dan Goodman 050 317 2597 cell phone when in Israel

Here’s is an unmet need: Israel has switched to paying for parking with Cello or Pango. Pango only works with Israeli phones. Cello claims not to, but I could not get Cello to send a connection to my phone, so it did not work. If you cannot park, you cannot drive, as a foreigner. Rental companies need to fix this.

We picked up at Mamilla mall in Jerusalem and while it took awhile at the front desk. Once we got the car we had a great conversation with Joseph. The chat was a highlight for us during our visit to Jerusalem. Get the extra insurance, it’s worth the $246. Drivers and terrain in Israel are tricky to navigate versus the states. I scraped the side of the car pulling into a parking spot and didn’t have to pay anything extra.

Cons:

Car wasnt ready, rental process was too long and tedious, couldnt rent for 24 hrs as normal, because office was closed next day for elections. Understand that is a holiday, but they need to make accommodations and plan ahead for this instead of telling customers they need to return the car in 5 hrs.

Cons:

An hour after we got the car, I noticed snuck on the glass of the windshield. I didn't want to notify Hertz because surely they would blame us. We hoped they wouldn't notice upon return. Well, they did, and of course didn't believe we didn't do it. We have CDW from our credit card company, but going home, so have to pay up front of new windshield and do time consuming claim with Chase Bank. Big nuisance, and not our fault. Our downfall was not thoroughly inspecting the windshield at time of rental.

Pros:

Fairly easy pickup.

They're operating a bait and switch. They lure you in with a low rental cost, then charge you 1.5X more in mandatory insurance than the car costs. I expect they make far more money on the insurance than on the rental fee.

Car hire insurance in Jerusalem

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Jerusalem car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Jerusalem.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Jerusalem car hire.

Top tips for hiring a car in Jerusalem

  • A hire car is the best and most comfortable way to freely explore not only Jerusalem, but also other major destinations in Israel, as tours can get quite pricey. A car is especially useful if you want to drive along the western Mediterranean coast and make scenic stops as you please. Drive to the fortress of Masada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as to the Dead Sea, which will take you less than two hours to reach from Jerusalem.
  • Most of the major car hire companies, including Avis and Sixt, can be found at Ben Gurion Airport (TLV), which is located about 50 minutes from Jerusalem. All the car hire desks can be found on the first floor of the Arrivals Hall at the airport’s main terminal. It is recommended that you get an International Driver’s Permit alongside your domestic driver’s license. Make sure to request an English-speaking GPS.
  • Driving in downtown Jerusalem can be quite challenging due to the narrow, busy streets, so if you’re not comfortable, just park your car somewhere and explore the center by foot. Only residents can drive in the Old City. Driving on the outskirts of the city is far easier, and most of Israel’s highway signs are expressed in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. If you any need help, remember that most Israelis speak good English.
  • Avoid driving during rush hour, which is 7-10 a.m. and 3:30-6:30 p.m. Fridays experience less traffic as most official establishments are closed. Route 1 is the main road heading towards the Mediterranean coast, with Tel Aviv to the west and the Dead Sea to the east, and it tends to be pretty crowded during peak season and on weekends. When heading to east Jerusalem, take Route 443 instead, which is less congested.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Jerusalem for €59 or less
  • Book your car hire in Jerusalem at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hires in Jerusalem are around 26% cheaper than other car types, on average
