i would not recommend picking up from the airport as it takes a yoivel to get your car. i waited more than a half hour just to get the car rental shuttle. i think ill only be picking up from yerushalayim from now on.

 I believe its back at the lot they were using when all Intl flights were using Term2

 However Avis Pres Club and Avis First members can still p/u their car at Term3 but must return it at the other lot and use the shuttle buses to get to Term3. could be the other companys have exceptions as well for their top levels

 So if you have either of those levels with Avis continue to go to Level 1 and the Avis counter up there , and theyw ill take care of teh paper work and bring you to your car at Term3

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.

 when did they change it?

Does it save me time? thats my main concern.

the fact that they moved? that just adds at about half to an hour

I meant the ones that get the car brought to them, is it shorter then going to pick it up?

Just got back. When i picked up the car, it was still in the airport. When i returned the car, there are orange (similar to construction) signs showing you where to go to return the cars. To drive from the Terminal to the car rental location took me about 5 minutes (i dropped the wife, the kid and all the luggage off first). Definitely not walkable...

Also just to confirm, i did get my rental through steve2 and the rate (with confirmed upgrade) was exactly as expected. (i even stayed an extra 2 days due to the volcano issues in Iceland and was charged for 2 days proportionate to the original quote)

do you mind telling me the price?

I paid lately for 1 day rental only incl everything (not fuel off course), taking, and returning to the airport $54 for a mazda 6, with a scratch insurance.

Steve2 hooked me up with a great deal over Lag Bomer which is high season- 5 days for a mazda 3, all in (including airport drop off) $192

Thanks Steve2!
