A rental car offers you maximum flexibility during your stay in Israel. You can pick it up either directly from a Jerusalem car rental or after you land at Ben Gurion Airport (TLV). So you can choose your individual route. The airport is located 50 kilometers west of the city center of Jerusalem, so that you can be on the road for about three-quarters of an hour when traffic is flowing.
Every car that you rent cheaply via Mietwagen-Check.de is already equipped with liability insurance. It saves you a lot of trouble if you get involved in an accident or cause any other damage. For liability insurance, the amount of coverage, which should not be less than one million euros, is decisive. Check the exact conditions of the insurance best in the rental conditions. You can also take out additional insurance if you wish. We offer insurance against theft and damage to glass, tyres, roof and underbody for your rental car.
A optimal protection against damage to the car offers a fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you must first pay the excess. This is usually deducted directly from your deposit. However, you can have these reimbursed by your broker afterwards. To do this, simply submit the invoice within the period specified in the rental agreement.
With your credit card you pay not only with the car rental your car, but also pay the deposit.This will be retained until you return the car undamaged. Only in the rarest cases can you pay the deposit in cash. All information about the deposit can be found in the rental conditions of the respective car.
If you are planning a round trip, offers with one-way rental are an option for you. These allow you to pick up the rental car at point A and return it to point B. So you are particularly cheap and flexible on the road. Use one-way rental, for example, if you travel from Jerusalem to the airport. The one-way rental is also very suitable for an exploratory trip through Israel or a trip to Tel Aviv or Eilat.
If you want to take turns with your companion at the wheel of the rental car, you must register this person with the rental company as an additional driver. To do so, the person must present his or her driving licence and identity card. Upon registration, the additional driver is included in the insurance and is thus covered if he causes damage or an accident.
In Israel, the driver of a rental car must be between 21 and 75 years old. You need an international driving licence.
