Location information for Jerusalem

Jerusalem is considered by many to be the capital of Israel, even if this is not recognized by the international community. However, it is still Israel's largest city and a major destination for tourists and pilgrims from across the world. Jerusalem hosts three of the world's biggest religions; Islam, Judaism and Christianity. As such, there is a large number of holy sites to occupy time in the city.

Most travelers fly to Ben Gurion Airport, near Tel Aviv. Passengers arriving here might want to hire a vehicle on arrival. However, those coming overland might prefer to arrange cheap car hire in Jerusalem Downtown. There are trains from several Israeli destinations, as well as Ben Gurion Airport. The Jaffa-Jerusalem route is one of the most scenic in the country.

In fact, the scenery is the biggest reason to take the train in Israel; buses are much more efficient. The Central Bus Station is a long walk from the downtown areas, so travelers arriving by this method should take a local bus instead. However, local buses don't operate from dusk on Fridays to dusk on Saturdays.

Given that Jerusalem buses don't run on Saturdays, it makes car hire in Jerusalem Downtown all the more attractive. However visitors will find that they have to explore the Old Town on foot, as cars are prohibited on many of the district's narrow lanes and alleys.

Outside the city, travelers are able to drive south to Bethlehem, birthplace of Jesus Christ. Bethlehem also attracts Jewish pilgrims who come to visit the birthplace of King David. It shouldn't take more than 20 minutes to get here with car rental in Jerusalem Downtown. However, travelers should factor in waiting times at checkpoints in and out of Bethlehem; the city is administered by the Palestinian Authority.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Car-Rentals.com the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
