|Most of the international car rental companies and some local car rental companies have offices around the independent square (A’tzmauut Square) and some are at the business area around the city (Poleg).
In order to rent a car in Israel, you need to be at least 21 years old, with a clean international driver’s license and an international credit card.
All rental cars are insured for use all around Israel but usually they are not insured for use in the Palestinian Authority territories, such as Bethlehem and Ramallah, and are not allowed into Jordan and Egypt.
Car rental tips
When you are picking up your rental car, pay attention that in some cases cars will only be held by the Car renting company for up to two hours from the designated time.
If you are running late, it is good to contact the company and if you know you’ll be picking a car up at the airport, offer your flight number in the event of flight delays.
Always check on the car rental company’s opening hours, which are not necessarily 24 hours.
Most important is not to forget to bring a credit card in your name.
Remember to note any defects prior to rental and to check what gas the car takes.
Note that some rental companies deliver or collect cars for an additional expense.
In case you got involved in a car accident, it is highly recommended to report details to the car hire company during the time of rental as soon as possible, who may charge for damages as per the rental agreement.
When returning the car, remember to fill up the gas tank and to get a written approval from a car rental company representative that all is in order.
