Renting a car in Israel for your upcoming vacation is a good idea, especially in the south, where having your own car will make it way easier to explore the surrounding areas and the amazing nature of the Negev. You could also drive to other areas easily, considering Israel is a relatively small country. Driving from Eilat to Haifa, for example, would take about six hours.
One of the best ways to find a cheap car rental in Israel, and specifically at Eilat Ramon Airport ETH, is a price comparison engine called Rentalcars. With years of experience in the car rental industry, this smart search engine (which you can find in this webpage) will locate the cheapest and best deals for car hire at Eilat Ramon Airport, after comparing deals from various car hire companies. With Rentalcars, you will be able to locate the best deals, compare it with others, filter the results, and place the order in just a few minutes.
Tourists are allowed to drive in Israel using a valid foreign driving license for a year since entering the country, as long as they are in the right age and their license matches the type of car they are driving.
There are a few things you should keep in mind when renting a car in Israel:
most of the companies only allow you to drive a rented car if you are 21 years old and had your license for at least two years.
A driver is considered a new driver between the ages of 21 and 24, and will usually be charged an additional new driver fee by rental companies.
Another thing to keep in mind, is that it is mandatory to carry a yellow reflective vest in the car and wear it when exiting the vehicle on the side of the road.
Road signs in Israel will usually be written in English as well, and rental companies will usually be able to add a GPS as an extra for the rental.
In Israel you can choose between many car rental companies, from famous international companies like Hertz and Sixt to small local companies.
