Why rent a car in Israel?

Israel is a great country to explore by car. From fun cities Haifa and Tel Aviv on the coast to timeless Jerusalem in the center and the Dead Sea and Negev Desert in the south east, its surprising diversity is best explored if you have your own ride. 

Israel Car Rental

Top ways to enter Israel

  • Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport: Israel’s main airport has flights to and from nearly all regions of the world.
  • Tel Aviv Sde Dov Airport: Only served by a few airlines, Tel Aviv’s other airport is connected to some domestic destinations as well as Cyprus.
  • Ovda Airport: About 60 km (37 mi) from Eilat, this airport is active seasonally.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Jerusalem: Holy to three of the world’s largest religions, Jerusalem is a place where there is history and meaning on every step.
  • Tel Aviv: Busy and modern, Tel Aviv is a true center of business, culture, and nightlife. 
  • Haifa: Similar to nearby Tel Aviv, but more easy-going, Haifa is a Mediterranean destination that can be enjoyed at a slower pace. 
  • Eilat: The only Israel’s city on the Red Sea, Eilat is also a place from where you can go on a Negev desert tour.
  • Galilee: Mountainous and picturesque, Galilee Region is home to cities of historic importance like Nazareth and Tiberias, as well as beautiful nature areas.

Most popular rental car

The most popular rental car in Israel is the Citroen Jumpy, but travelers also like the Hyundai i20 and the Kia Sportage.

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular car type in Israel is a fullsize, but luxury and compact are also popular.

Top driving routes

  1. Jerusalem - Tel Aviv (69 km / 43 mi) Although Israel’s two largest cities can sometimes feel worlds apart in terms of atmosphere, you can drive between in just slightly over one hour, and the distance will be even shorter if your starting or ending point will be Tel Aviv Airport.
  2. Tel Aviv - Haifa (93 km / 58 mi) The route between these two cities can be done in just an hour and a half, and most of the road will take you along the Mediterranean coast, so you’ll find many opportunities for interesting detours. 
  3. Tel Aviv - Eilat (351 km / 218 km) Eilat is quite isolated from the rest of the inhabited Israel and temperatures can get very high, so you should be well prepared if you decide to do this route. Nevertheless, driving through the desert with its otherworldly landscape means the positives will still outweigh the negatives.

As long as you have a navigator like my son guiding you around and through all of the round-a-bouts. NO problems driving in Israel ... except narrow streets and some places have limited parking.
