 your 1st 1 doesnt include the airport tax if you will be p/u or d/o at the airport so add $27 to whatever they show you they are apx $6 less then I can get it for.Thats if they dont play around once you get there, which unfortunately many do do they sucker you in and once over there they know they got you and load it up with all sorts of extras to get the rate up.They know you cant simply walk over to someone else . I will try tommorrow to see if in fact they are legit.

 also when you go thru make sure you checked off the box Yes for Liability and No for CDW/Theft  , then look at the box right under the quote where it says in RED "Please Note" it says it includes 3500 KMs a day that has to be a typo thats 2188 miles per day. So its either 35 or 350 IMO and anything over I imagine there will be a charge. If its 350 thats not all bad depending on how much driving and to where a person will drive. Since you simply times 350 by the # of days of the rental so lets say a weekly rental = 350 x 7 = 2450 kms allowed. Ive done more then that only a couple of times. if its 35 kms LOOK OUT. I dont believe the contract that will be signed over there will specify 3500 kms per day. i do believe that either 35 or 350 will be written down somewhere and maybe hidden as well

 
 the 2nd one Id suggest staying as far away from as possible their rates dont make sense and they dont show you a break down , so be prepared to get hit with all sorts of extras :-( IMO  Their hotel rates = some more and some less then what others are chargng out there. I just dont get a good feeling about them

car rentals at ben gurion are in terminal 2. you have to take a shuttle from the terminal 3 to get there which officially run every 15 minutes, but you know how it is in israel.

Liability is at least $14/day so the prices listed are a bit cheaper than most travel agents here, but around the same $20-$30/day with a WMC depending on season. Not too good to be true; just looks a bit weird that they are passing themselves off as officially part of Avis.

 also do you have to give them your CC info and all, if yes why? The reses Ive made for people I have no idea what their info is except their legal name, no CC info except if they have WMC or not so the correct rate can be figured out.

 sorry but unless I know who's behind a site I wouldnt want to be giving out my Personal and Private info that can be used and mess me up very badly, especially if all Im gonna be savings is literally a few bucks $10,$30 etcetc too small to risk everything on

You don't have to give your cc info, and for $7.80/day + $15/day for mandatory insurance it seems like it's worth investigating.

 1- you cant be talking about the 1st 1 of those 2 since even thou it lets U chose which Ins U want to take it clearly says in Red " Please Note! Insurance coverage are Mandatory, will be charged at time of rental". so you will have nothing to Dispute with your CC.

for #2 they dont show everything so be prepared that it will be there somewhere on the contract, the last thing I want to do is spend alot of time reading everything on all sides of those contracts instead of driving away. To each their own.

Now the savings of $7.80/day + $15 for ins is from where?? and what rental company did you get aquote from to compare? Just cause you may not have found the cheapest legit 1 doesnt mean much. My $6 I mentioned above wasnt per day but over 5 days or $1.20 a day

Where do you get rent from?

 as numerous people on this site can attest to (and some have posted as such) what I quote them is usually the cheapest Legit rate out there. sometimes it will be due to a Confirmed Upgrade so they are paying for a lower Cat car yet will be confirmed for a higher 1 at time of the Reservation. I havent yet heard back from even 1 person that what I told them theyd get didnt happen and they were forced to pay more etc.

 again I am NOT a TA and I do NOT earn even 1 cent on any rental, just trying to save some fellow Yidden some $$, at least those who ask me to try to

 OK last time for this advice:

 people please realize that if you pick up a car say at 10am on 4/20 and return it at 9am on 4/26 thats a 6 day rental (thinking of flying in & out on CO 84 & 85) however if p/u on 4/20 @ 10am (CO 84) and returning 4/26 @ 10pm (flying back on CO 91) that = a 7 day rental. so if you want to compare rates it must be with all the same info

also if p/u and/or d/o @ the airport there will be a $27 tx so its important to mention if you will be p/u and /or d/o at the Airport or again you wont beable to properly compare Rates or get a proper 1 from me at least

 just some info for everyone the WMC negates having to take the Theft & CDW , there is NO WAY you will get out of paying for the Liability unless you take the CDW & Theft the rental company offers as they bundle the LI in with those 2 and give you 1 price for all 3.

 They will 1000% charge you for the LI once you go for the car, you may Dispute it when you get back but many companies today have a * or a note that there maybe other charges not included. A company or site that didnt go thru a Dispute yet you might get lucky as they may not have put that up on their site as of yet, once they get a charge back 1 time they surely will. it doesnt matter if they werent up front about it as long as somewhere its on their site even if you had to click something to get to it, you will have an uphill battle that IMO in the end youd probably end up losing and paying for the Li. An exception maybe if you have a history of spending crazy amounts on the CC then they might eat it themselves that 1 time
