Israel car hire information

Does Israel have exclusive traffic laws?

Car hire is a great option for getting around in Israel. If you choose to rent a car during your stay, you should be aware of a few unique driving laws. If you choose to visit Israel in winter, make sure you drive with your headlights switched on, as it's an offence to drive without headlights on interurban roads between November and March. Drivers in Israel are also legally required to carry a reflective or high-vis jacket in their vehicle at all times. This will help other drivers to see you on the road if you need to leave your vehicle due to an accident or breakdown. When you collect your rental car, make sure you check that a reflective garment is provided, or you can bring your own. Those relying on car rentals in Israel should also be aware that strict laws around seat belt use apply.

What are the legal and documentation requirements for renting a car in Israel?

You must be at least 21 years old to hire a car in Israel legally. However, many car rental companies do not offer rental cars to drivers under the age of 25. You must also hold a valid driving licence from your home country to hire a car in Israel. When you collect your vehicle, you should bring your licence and some form of legal identification, such as a passport. Some car hire companies also require customers to have personal collision waiver damage insurance. Car insurance in Israel doesn't usually cover you if you're entering areas of political conflict, such as the Gaza Strip or the West Bank. You should also make sure that you have your passport, licence, and visa in the car with you while driving in Israel, which will allow you to pass through any military checkpoints in the areas you visit.

What areas of Israel have the most traffic?

Israel is quite a small country, which makes it ideal to explore with car rentals. However, Israel’s major cities, like Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, are often extremely congested, with high volumes of traffic at most times. Free roadside parking is available in Israel, but only where there are no markings to indicate otherwise. Understandably, free parking spots are often taken, and it can be hard to find empty spaces. Make sure you read any road signs carefully before parking your hire car, as some signs may specify times or circumstances when parking is not permitted. Paid car parks and parking metres are available but are also often busy. Even if you opt for car hire in Israel, it may be best to use public transport while exploring the cities. Tel Aviv and Jerusalem have well-maintained inner city bus networks, and taxis and rideshare services are widely available throughout tourist areas.

What are the best scenic roads in Israel?

Israel has some beautiful scenery that is well worth exploring by car. One of Israel's most impressive scenic roads is Road 90, which runs directly along the Dead Sea coast. The road offers unique desert scenery and is also one of the lowest roads in the world. Drivers should be aware that other drivers may travel at high speeds along this route and that there are no clear markings to divide the lanes. Take care to stay on your side and allow other drivers to pass rather than trying to keep up or overtake. Another beautiful Israeli route is the Carmel Scenic Road through the Carmel Mountains. This route is located close to the city of Nazareth, where visitors will find fuel stations, hotels, and places to eat. The Carmel Mountain Road takes drivers through the picturesque Carmel Forest. This area is one of the best in Israel to explore if you opt for cheap rental cars during your trip.
