KAYAK’s 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.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Jerusalem for C$ 37 or less
  • Book your rental car in Jerusalem at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Jerusalem are around -2% cheaper than other car types, on average

Jerusalem car rental experiences: the best tips from KAYAK users

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Jerusalem 
Verified travelerNov. 2023
Parking in Jerusalem can be challenging! Don't rent a car assuming you're going to find parking. If you're travelling out of Jerusalem parking gets much easier. Driving signs are pretty intuitive, and Waze is a great help. Due to ongoing security concerns at this time, some info may not currently be available on Waze or Google maps (such as local traffic conditions).
andrewAug. 2023
expect typical big city traffic and waiting times , but the signage is good and google maps, waze work great
HarryJul. 2023
Bring proof of international car insurance with you. Hard copy if possible.
Verified travelerAug. 2023
Be careful of the paid street parking. You can only pay it through an app called "pango", which you can only use if you have an Israeli phone number. If you don't have a relative that can help you with that, you should avoid parking in those because they'll get you in minutes. I spoke to a parking violation officer and he told me it's by designed to get the more money from the tourists while they're traveling.

FAQs about renting a car in Jerusalem

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Jerusalem?

    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.

  • What’s the speed limit in Jerusalem?

    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).

  • Where are the best places to park in Jerusalem?

    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.

Staff was polite, and most spoke English - the manager was fluent which is a lot more than I can say about my Hebrew! Car was fine, staff explained all the particulars (they use a security code for the car and set the emergency brake each time the car is parked, which isn't standard in the USA).

Here’s is an unmet need: Israel has switched to paying for parking with Cello or Pango. Pango only works with Israeli phones. Cello claims not to, but I could not get Cello to send a connection to my phone, so it did not work. If you cannot park, you cannot drive, as a foreigner. Rental companies need to fix this.

We picked up at Mamilla mall in Jerusalem and while it took awhile at the front desk. Once we got the car we had a great conversation with Joseph. The chat was a highlight for us during our visit to Jerusalem. Get the extra insurance, it’s worth the $246. Drivers and terrain in Israel are tricky to navigate versus the states. I scraped the side of the car pulling into a parking spot and didn’t have to pay anything extra.

An hour after we got the car, I noticed snuck on the glass of the windshield. I didn't want to notify Hertz because surely they would blame us. We hoped they wouldn't notice upon return. Well, they did, and of course didn't believe we didn't do it. We have CDW from our credit card company, but going home, so have to pay up front of new windshield and do time consuming claim with Chase Bank. Big nuisance, and not our fault. Our downfall was not thoroughly inspecting the windshield at time of rental.
