try carrentals.com. I have found that the price they quote for Sixt includes insurance charges (unlike some of the other prices quoted) and is a good price too.

thanks a lot, its not wow, but not too bad, this "tax included" is a good thing, I guess there will still be a airport tax on top of it.

I used to pay at the same location (budget) $7/day less, and get a free 4x upgrade....

it works out for the smallest car all in $37.5/day. Anyone has a better deal.

 are you sure it includes 3rd Party Liability??? Im not since they are trying to get you to purchase the CDW at least when I clicked on the Budget choice

Im convinced once over there they will hit you for the LDW .


 BTW click onto "Total Price" in Blue below your quote and it states "... This price does not include services such as insurance waviers etc ....  and the LDW is exactly that. You wont win any Dispute with that * on their website, so carrentals will probably be the most expensive way to Rent in the end

 If I remember correctly Dan rented via Budget and in the end got hit with the LDW charge once over there. I dont believe he ever reported back what became of his Dispute of the charge, nor do I know if he used carrentals.com, hopefully he will read this and post an answer so others can be fully informed

 I have found the following link to give me very good rates which at times was less then the Offical rate from the Hotel itself, dont know if they can do it on such notice as they usually get back to you the next day; http://www.israelhotels.org/hotels_all.cfm?LevelID=31

 I assume anyone included me as well,LoL

 I used them for the Thurs before Succos and for 1 night only and they were $40 less then the Hotels rate. Park Hotel. It aint the Citadel but bkfst was OK and fot 1 or 2 nights it was just what I needed. Its the Hotel 2 up from the Ramada near the Entrance to the City. Maybe a 2 1/2 * but it was clean just not fancy sort of like a Motel6

ok- im looking for a 10 day rental picking up April 8th at Ben Gurion and dropping off April 18th.
I am over 25, and would take a manual or automatic. Any ideas where to go? Do corporate accounts work in Israel?

It seems that if i have a world MasterCard or a business MC, i can avoid paying the CDW...Is that any world mastercard? Can anyone recommend which one to sign up for? It cant be a chase as i already have 2 chase cards approved in the last 6 months...
I was thinking of getting the Ameriprise world MasterCard (no annual fee) just to avoid paying the CDW. Is there a different card i should get that would offer me some nice perks while im at it?

Again, cant seem to edit a prior post...it seems the AA citi card is a world mastercard which i obviously have.

Dan, you wrote over here: http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/5335#comment-54697 that you were going to try and dispute the LDW charges...did it work?
