Why Rent a Car in Israel?
As per Bible, Israel is considered the part of the Holy Land and though small this country offers a lot to make a traveler’s journey memorable, like the splendid views of its long coastline along the Mediterranean Sea. Studded with attractions like Rosh Haniqra - which is a magnificent seaside rock structure - and Machtesh Ramona, a structure which looks like a crater, Israel is full of hidden gems. But these gems are scattered across the country, it is best advised that you rent a car for a thorough exploration.
Moreover, the country already has a modern highway system and has a traffic system that is a lot like Europe, which makes renting a car seems a better option any day against time-consuming public transport & expensive cabs.

Israel Rent a Car Questions
Can I Drive a Car in Israel with a UK/US/Canadian Driver’s License?
Yes, you can drive in Israel no matter from which country you are visiting; it is just that your foreign driver’s license should be full and valid. Note that temporary, digital licenses or photocopies of the original licenses are usually not entertained by the rent car companies, just read the instruction given on the voucher or call us for the accurate information.
Can You Hire a Car Without Credit Card in Israel?
Yes you can rent a car in Israel even if you don’t have a credit card. Call us, and we will help you find the supplier which allows payment at the rental desk through cash or debit card. And in the case, if for the given location, every supplier asks for a credit card, you can use a friend's credit card. The booking will be made in the name of the credit card holder and you will be added as the additional driver.
Do I need an International Driver’s License to rent a car in Israel?
Drivers renting cars in Israel don’t need an International Driving Permit (IDP) provided their Driver’s licenses (DL) are in English. However if the DL is in some other language, it is advised that you carry your Driver’s license or an official translation of the license. This is essential because in case of unlikely events like an accident, an officer will need the IDP or the translation to easily read your license details & fill the accident form that you will need to submit to the rental company at the time of drop-off. However, note an IDP is not accepted as the substitute of your DL; if you have your IDP but not DL, the supplier will not allow you to pick the car.
