Top tips for renting a car in Jerusalem

  • A rental car is the best and most comfortable way to freely explore not only Jerusalem, but also other major destinations in Israel, as tours can get quite pricey. A car is especially useful if you want to drive along the western Mediterranean coast and make scenic stops as you please. Drive to the fortress of Masada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as to the Dead Sea, which will take you less than two hours to reach from Jerusalem.
  • Most of the major car rental companies, including Avis and Sixt, can be found at Ben Gurion Airport (TLV), which is located about 50 minutes from Jerusalem. All the car rental desks can be found on the first floor of the Arrivals Hall at the airport’s main terminal. It is recommended that you get an International Driver’s Permit alongside your domestic driver’s license. Make sure to request an English-speaking GPS.
  • Driving in downtown Jerusalem can be quite challenging due to the narrow, busy streets, so if you’re not comfortable, just park your car somewhere and explore the center by foot. Only residents can drive in the Old City. Driving on the outskirts of the city is far easier, and most of Israel’s highway signs are expressed in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. If you any need help, remember that most Israelis speak good English.
  • Avoid driving during rush hour, which is 7-10 a.m. and 3:30-6:30 p.m. Fridays experience less traffic as most official establishments are closed. Route 1 is the main road heading towards the Mediterranean coast, with Tel Aviv to the west and the Dead Sea to the east, and it tends to be pretty crowded during peak season and on weekends. When heading to east Jerusalem, take Route 443 instead, which is less congested.

  • If you’re navigating the busy, narrow streets of Jerusalem, a small, compact car is a solid option. If you’re heading towards the Mediterranean coast, a mid-sized sedan with good fuel efficiency is probably the best option as it offers more comfort and space for longer journeys. A convertible can be a fun way to cruise the coast when the weather allows it.

  • The speed limit within city limits is usually 60 km/h (31 mph), but it may lower in certain residential areas, so keep an eye out for posted signs. Undivided intercity highways have a speed limit of 80 km/h (50 mph), and divided intercity highways observe a limit of 90 km/h (56 mph). Major freeways allow you to drive at speeds of 90-110 km/h (56-68 mph).

If you need to fill up the tank before returning your car to the agency, there is a gas station on the northwest side of the airport.

  • Street parking is usually limited to two hours and is free on weekends. The system is regulated by colors: red and white-painted curbs indicate that parking is forbidden, grey-marked streets are free, and blue and white curbs require payment. When visiting the Old City, it’s best to leave the car at the Karta garage in Mamilla, close to the Jaffa Gate.
