KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Haifa

  • Cheap car rentals in Haifa give you the freedom to explore the city and its surroundings at your own pace. This is especially true if you want to visit some of the more remote or hard-to-reach areas of the region. Some of the places that are worth visiting in or around Haifa and are more accessible if you have a car include Mount Carmel, Akka (Acre), and Baha'i Gardens.  Moreover, using Haifa car rentals is generally more comfortable and convenient than taking public transport, especially if you plan to travel outside the city center.
  • Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) is located about 20 km southeast of Tel Aviv city center, and it is the main airport serving Israel. The car rental offices are located on level G of the multi-level car park, which is situated a short walk from Terminal 3. There is no airport shuttle to the car rental offices, but there are several options for getting there. One option is to walk to the car rental park, which takes around 5-10 minutes from Terminal 3. Another option is to take the shuttle bus from Terminal 3 to the car rental park, which is free of charge. The shuttle arrives at bus stop number 3 outside the Arrivals Hall.
  • The form of driving in Haifa is generally fast-paced, and drivers tend to be impatient and aggressive. While most drivers do respect the rules, they may be quick to honk their horns or make sudden lane changes. There are many bicycles on the road, and cyclists should be given space when passing. In addition, pedestrians may be jaywalking, so drivers in cheap car rentals in Haifa should be alert and prepared to stop at any time.
  • Haifa is the third-largest city in Israel and a major transportation hub, which means that traffic can be heavy during peak hours. Rush hour in Haifa usually occurs from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm on weekdays. During these hours, the main roads leading to the city and the downtown area, such as Sderot HaHaganah, Sderot Rothschild, and HaNevi'im Street, may experience heavy traffic and delays. Additionally, Haifa has many steep hills and narrow, winding roads, which can be challenging to navigate for some drivers, especially during rush hour.
  • Book your rental car in Haifa at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Haifa are around 27% cheaper than other car types, on average

The roads in the city can be narrow and congested, which means that a compact car would be easier to maneuver and park. Furthermore, a small SUV can be a good choice as it offers higher ground clearance and better visibility, which can be useful when driving on some of the city's uneven or bumpy roads.

  • What’s the speed limit in Haifa?

    In general, the speed limit in urban areas in Haifa is 50 km/h (31 mph), while on main highways outside the city, the speed limit is usually 90 km/h (around 55 mph). However, it is important to note that speed limits can vary depending on the specific road and location. In some areas, especially near schools, hospitals, and residential zones, the speed limit may be reduced to 30 or 40 km/h (19 or 25 mph). There are also some highways that have a higher speed limit of 110 or 120 km/h (65 or 80 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Haifa?

    It is recommended to park Haifa car rentals in designated parking lots or garages rather than on the street. Street parking can be limited and expensive, especially in the city center. Paid parking costs around 20 NIS (6 USD) to 30 NIS (9 USD) per hour in the city center. Some streets may offer free parking during certain hours, but it is essential to check the signs and follow the regulations carefully to avoid getting a ticket or being towed. There are several parking facilities available in Haifa, such as Gan HaEm, the Lev Hamifratz Mall, and the Panorama Center. Paid parking in these facilities costs around 15 NIS-20 NIS (4.50-6 USD) per hour.

Pros:

They did not argue about small things, friendly, professional, new car, spotless. Can return the car with no additional cost to any branch, can hold more days without telling them and price drop

Cons:

location hard to find. if you go from local web site the car insurance cheaper, and the main thing- when you order you don't know what will be the total as they don't tell you the insurance cost which is 3-4 times more than rental

Pros:

the price

Cons:

1. Price shown didn't include compulsory insurance. 2. The car I was offered had whistles in air conditioner, all other analogous (Nissan Micra) too. We had to go back to the office and pay more money (not much though) to upgrade and get good working car. 3. I was explained that 250 free km is just mileage limitation - wtf?

I arrived on time and was told there were no cars for me and would have to wait between 10mins and an hour. Then a whole bunch of people got their car ahead of me. I finally had to channel my inner Israeli and yell at the manager. The car I did get smelled like smoke and was not clean. The person in the lot insisted that it did not smell like smoke. They also did not explain to me the gadget in the car that kept on beeping at me. It was a speed tracker and made sure I didn’t get too close to other cars but also beeped when I passed parked cars. In all very frustrating experience.

Jun. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

They tried to be courteous.

Cons:

Needed to add a driver. They told me i had to come in. I matter how hard I pushed they would not give in. So i went in to the branch. While there adding the driver the guy next to me checked out a car. They told him if he needs to add a driver he can email or fax in a copy of the DL of the driver, no problem. No need to come in... I don't like wasting time, esp for no reason. Oh, and they also tried to get me to put another $500 deposit, and sign a new contract at a higher rate - neither of those did i agree to of course.
