Hi,
Never put your your email online n a searchable site, even not when putting the @ between ( ) or [ ].
Spammers have programs that harvest them...

I've heard that www.carhire3000.com is cheap, but never tested them myself.

If any good please update us.

Well as you didn't reply (some people just like asking, but don't contribute), and I need to rent a car for 1-2 days in Israel, I checked it out, but it seems like they have bad prices...

Anyone that has a good place (in TLV airport) to rent?

I need it for begin next week.

If not so cheap, at least let it be a good car (shift is okay)

Your post was first at 2:17 am and then at 5:44. when exactly were u expecting me to see your post?? in any case i dont have any more info. I meanwhile reserved a car thru "baruch freiman" So far thats the cheapest and I have used him a number of times . I  am paying 325 (maybe a few dollars more or less i dont remember exactly but its 320 something) its for  getz (small car automatic) and it a 12 day rental. for shabbos its only 13 dollars for the ins. thats also including the 27.00 airport charge. If you dont need to pick up and/or return atthe airport then you can save the 27

 People if you are gonna ask for others to help you, you Need to help them

 In this case ygift was nice enough to have included the Dates they needed the car an dthe car type in this case an ecomony Automatic

 what was left out and Definitely has a bearing on the Rate is 1- are You 25 or older (under 25 in is costs more, 2- do you have a world MC or Biz MC that will cover the CDW in Is otherwise again the Rate will be more

 for Is what a person needs to let everyone know is:1-Dates of rental

                                                                       2- type of car and manual or automatic

                                                                        3- over 25 or not

                                                                        4- do you have a World Mc or Biz MC that will cover the CDW

                                                                        5- where do you want to pick-up and where to drop off the car

 all 5 of these are needed in order to get a proper Rate Quote as each 1 can add to the cost of the Rental

 Not all will apply to a rental any where else but if you want someone to Help you , You 1st need to help them

 Im posting this here not for ygift but so hopefully anyone else in the furure will supply the necessary info from get go

Okay, I think that some of those requests are obsolete, but never mind, here we go.

Arriving iy"h on a flight from IST to land in TLV airport at 6:30pm on 22nd December.

That is where I would like to rent a car.

I need it for 1 or 2 days (don't have a return ticket yet)

I'm over 25

I shall return it to the same place.

Shift is no prob.

I have an amex plat which includes an insurance, but the sabras don't accept it, yes, I need an insurance.


If anything else, such as blood type horoscope and others is needed, please let me know.

 for 1 or 2 days thats a problem as theres no room to play with, Id say try online as most deals require a 3 day min but the better ones are with a 7 day min rental

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?

When in Israel just make sure to do a walkaround with the agent and mark up every scratch on the dent paper they give you.

I have rented a lot in Israel, You give the kid who comes out to see u and inspect the car 5 bucks tip, and all scratches go away....

once i had a new employee at Hertz, and he had to ask his manager what to do (after i tipd him) Sure enough he came back to tell me that the scratch was from the previous renter........ a lie, because i know i did it.

 $165 includes picking up and dropping off at the Airport, includes 3rd party liability ins, I assumed you have a World MC to cover the CDW.

Also its an extra $7 a day if you are under 25.

So if your rate of $200 includes the CDW if you dont have a World MC and includes underage fees if you havent reached your 25th birthday, GRAB IT. Otherwise PM if you want me to book it for you

 my advice is for you to post the necessary info in order to get a proper quote

-time of p/u and time of drop off ?

-where to p/u and drop-off ?

- type of car ?

- do you have a World MC to cover the CDW?

Bans are typically temporary measures to ensure the rules of this site are being followed after a warning.  It's in poor taste to discuss them openly though so let's try to aviod that.

 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

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

 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.

 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

 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

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)

I was quoted $317 for 10 days including the airport fee of $27 and using a world MasterCard. This was from Steve2

$317 - $27 = $290. $290 ÷ 10 = $29 a day. When i had to add 2 days because my flights through Europe were canceled, they charged me $29 for each additional day. In total, i paid $375 for 12 days. It was a Mazda3 from Avis (the car was brand new with 800 km on it when i got it)

 This tells me you have Never been in Israel during Succos when Rehavia/Shari Chessed is full of them. and I guess you never rented when everything use to be at the old lot where they are back to now. BTW this lot is where they hold most of the cars/vans and brought them over to T3 when they needed them

Did you ever see them washing a car or fixing them at T3. like they do here in the US, it was done over at the old lot

Way too early for Succos for any kind of decent rates. Its just like the Airlines, you can buy a tkt now for next Pesach but it will very expensive since they dont have any idea what the reg rates will be. maybe mid summer before they know where they'll be standing

Steve's right about the need to buy liability, but you won't have to pay a surcharge for being 24.
Been there, done that.

 well since Im slightly over 25 i cant comment if they will let a person slip by or not.

Avis has a policy of $7 if under 25 up to $70 max, its charged ONLY at the counter in Israel so it will not be apart of the agreement, I hardly doubt they will let anyone drive off w/o paying that , and if a person decides to Dispute it if using the link you suppliied they will be going after a non-Avis enity. just as they allow a person to rent w/o choosing any ins coverage they will hit the person for it as it says in Red in a few places once over there.

 also on your link on the page where you fill in all the info by the "send" button click onto "terms & conditions" in purple right above it and Bingo all the amounts Ive been telling everyone they wont get away with are there in Red and White and Black  Underage fees, Mandatory Liaibilty etc etc.

Dont reserve it get there and make a Chilil HaShem by yelling at them and calling them names, YOU WONT GET A CAR W/O paying for these things and since its on the site You will LOSE any Dispute you file!

 Dan you will not get your car for $7.80 net besides airport tax either, I just didnt go over the link with a fine tooth comb before Now, its all there as it is with budgets

I saw it happen twice at the avis rental counter in TLV when i was there 2 weeks ago. I was waiting on the side calling AA mastercard to tell them i was in Israel so the charges would go through (Heads up: its a good idea to call before you go out of the country so your CC wont try and deny the charges thinking they are fraudulent). I saw it happen twice in the few minutes i was there. A frum (yeshiva bochur kind of guy) walks up with a rental confirmation and goes nuts when they tell him he as to pay for the insurances. The guy tries showing him his papers and how he was quoted a price, and how he didnt know etc...Obviously nothing worked. The avis guy even offered to show him on their site how its all there.

He was told by budget that with a world mastercard he does not need cdw, and was also told that liability is included in the price since you cant rent without it?
Also, if you look at the page I quoted from budget,  it says  that cdw is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR YOUR RENTAL, but I guess it's not mandatory?

 My main pt is its OK to go ahead and book it where underage and/or Liability is taken but DONT go NUTS over at the counter by carrying on and yelling and telling them you will sue them , dispute it etc etc they're a bunch of thieves.

KEEP in mind you wont be dealing with a Religious person and at least in my mind all you will accomplish is to have created a Chilul HaShem

 So book it if you want to and when they tell you the Good News , accept it and dont say Boo or raise your voice

 You gonna have to do something that will be EXTREMELY hard for You to do = TRUST ME he will NOT get a  car w/o paying the underage and Liability. Budget will charge it and he will have to sue that agent in court alot of good that will do

 Budget will submit to the CC proof that they have the info on their site as I pointed out to You above, the CC will side with Budget = Lose Dispute he can then try and go after the agent who book it but if he doesnt have in writting its in the price He will Lose

 I spoke to an agent myself today and was told with Budget it was alot less then what I had  reserved mine for when I worked it all out Bingo the Liability wasnt there. Could be that agent was simply going onto Budget.com and making the res getting his cut and leaving it to you to sort out.Or maybe he raelly didnt know its all theer, after all it took me some time till I found it on both Budgets site and Dans link and I was all over Dans link plenty till I found it just before

 Ive presented the FACTS the best i can and DAVID has backed it up (didnt ask him to as I didnt know it even happened)

as its said I can led a horse to water, but I cant make him drink it.

You each simply need to do as you please , just dont make a CH when yiou get over there!

 moefl this is for you alone, PLEASE do not ask me to book you a car , I dont want you or anyone else to think Im saying all that I did in order to do the booking, I will NOT book this car for you. (besides I dont make even  a cent booking them) Book it wherever you want just know you will pay underage and liability. Dan said Budget wont charge underage so maybe they will get away with that

Do you need to pay with a world-master card to be covered for free, or its enough if you show them?

Is there anyway i could become an additional cardholder from someone? i will obviously not use it, its just to waive the insurance.

 I can only speak for Avis and Eldan both will swipe the CC and if when returning want to use a different CC they will charge you for CDW. Avis joined Eldan in doing this apx 6 months ago

 was gonna PM U about this, good to know.how every Id say a person unerage should keep in mind that according to Avis's T&Cs they will have to pay it, I never meant a person who got out of paying the Liability ins

 anyway Avis doesnt include it in their confirmations over here so as long a sthey arent looking too closely I guess a person coukld get away with it.

 now I do know Avis asks most times if the person is underage since under 23 means only a Getz and under 25 means a mazda3 at best

 happy to hear its another case of YMMV

  $0 , CitiAA MC or Chase CO Mc can be had for no annual fee the 1st yr. So all 1 needs to do is keep switching off between them. Thats if they will still offer the. You wont get lets say the bonus miles but Id think they wouldnt charge the annual fee.

Ive never paid for my WMC so far at least

Your problem is if you dont have a US SS# will they give it to U

 now that churning is a thing of the past with Citi, I'll probably go with this baby too. just keep in mind you wont be able to switch CCs when you return teh car at least with eldan or Avis unless you agree to pay for the CDW as if you used that CC from get go

 It depends Ive been asked when I got them for a European friend even thou I never said he wasnt an American.Other times all they wanted was the name the card should be issued in

I dont think it will work because the insurance is mandatory and if you wanna pay with a different card and decline the insurance they wont let but rather charge you for it even if there arent any scratches

 I take it You didnt rent with Eldan or Avis and return it eitehr at The Airport or in Jerusalem. Since last summer they no longer will allow a person to use teh WMC and then when returning the car allow say a AMEX SPG. If you insist you want to use the AMEX theyw ill take it and charge you for CDW as if you Never gave them a WMC

Eldan has been doing it this way for a # of yrs now.Avis wouldnt let me switch when I returned the car after Succos. It can very well be that you rented with a company other then either of these 2 or got very Lucky

 back after Succos Avis told me they were getting hell from WMC that the CCs were being swiped and then the charge never appeared :-) , also it seems there were a few cases where the damage wasnt noticed till afterwards and Avis ended up holding the bag, as CDW wasnt purchased nor did the CC used in the end have it . So the person Disputes it and Avis was left out in the cold. This way they are covered.

no matter what cc you use, they cant charge you for the damage they find after you close out your contract, as who is to say that you caused it? once their drivers take that car out of park, im completely off the hook for anything they may subsequently find.

 And lets go 1 step further and say WMC never called to complain. It doesnt matter as Eldan ahs been doing it for yrs now = Not allowing a switch to a CC that doesnt have the CDW coverage. I would imagine if say I have a Chase CO WMC and a Citi AA WMC but my Chase doesnt have enough left to clear the amount they put on Hold, so I use my Citi and when I return the car I tell them I want to switch and pay with my Chase WMC I cant see them saying not unless I pay the CDW, since both have the Coverage. What they wont let is the use of an Amex or VISA w/o then paying the extra it would have had I taken their CDW as well

If anyone has Recently been able to switch which CC they pay with when they returned the Car Please post the name of that Company that you rented from. Of cause if they charge alot more for the rental itself then IMO it doesnt pay to rent with them.

 I was only interested in switching basically since the WMC was suppose to charge the 3% fee for outside the US usage.It didnt with my Rental after Succos and hopefully wont again , but its still cheaper to pay that 3% then to pay for the CDW the rental companys are charging which BTW come with a deductable that youd be responsible for anyway unless you chose to go with Premium CDW and pay more $$

3% ? that is really a lot for a master card.

 nope they charge that as well for any FOREX charge. It was only a few yrs ago that they decided if if the charge is in US$ they will hit us with the 3% as well. I have a CC that doesnt charge me the FOREX fees and even throws me back 1 1/4% rebate but no CDW as its a VISA

 3% is what almost Every US Bank is charging, even Amex is up to 2.875% and as of yet I havent been hit with that if its in US$

I just got back from Israel yesterday, and I wanted to thank Steve2 for hooking me up.
I got a $179 rate for a Hyundai Getz Automatic inc. airport tax for 8 days. (I'm 22 and have WMC). Also when i picked it up the gas was slightly less than full so he marked it as "G7" ("G8" being full), and when I returned it (I filled up in J-lem before driving to the airport) it was marked full so they credited me $20.....
All in all great experience....

Thanks!

 good to hear it all went smoothly

 Did you have to pay the $7 a day Underage fee? there were a few posts on the other page saying its not charged, I said I was told its collected over there and so I mention that to those it might affect , I wouldnt want someone to get over there and find out they were being charged for it, so Id rather have someone not take a car then in the end to take it and get charged when i said not to worry about it

 even if You werent charged the $7 I STILL will tell anyone under 25 that once there they may be charged the fee, Id rather that then say Everyone doesnt pay it and Bingo this 1 guy gets it charged.just the way I am

What did you think about the traveling with the shuttle to the car rental place at ben gurion airport? what a shlep it was for me.

I alomost missed my flight last Monday, when the shuttle was full when arrived to my car rental place, and i had to wait for the next one which got full before getting to pick us up.
Missed 3 shuttles WHAT A MESS

Never renting at the TLV airport again

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. When I got there, I squeezed onto a shuttle just before it was leaving, and when I returned I didn't have to wait too long either... So, I guess it's luck....

 Oh thats was U who called I couldnt make out a name and when a phone is shut off it doesnt list missed calls, expect a call shortly.

 As for the Shuttle Unfortunatley its True it started 4/11 , Those who have 1 of the 2 top levels with Avis can still p/u at Term3, BUT EVERYONE must return it at T2

 Im heading over next week, but will p/u at T3. could very well be depending what time a person arrives it might be best to use Nesher to/from Jerusalem and waste their time getting a car in Jerusalem,I say "waste" since its usually a very long process, till they get to you and then till they drive teh car up to the place.Could be the place on Bar Ilan would be quicker only they dont have a huge seclection there so youd be stuck with whatever they have   Sort of like a meal on aplane , the FA asks youif you want to eat and you ask do I have achoice and they answer sure do Yes or No

After Pesach, I booked as an Israeli (including VAT) with no MCW 3 day rental for a Nissan Tida  (unlimited miles) for about $120. I'm Under 25. I'm pretty sure that's a very good deal - much cheaper than anything else that I could find online. I rented at the Avis on Yirmiyahu (Bar Ilan). I got the number from my brother in law,  there's an Avis agent in the US and they book it for you. Call 201-750-2050. Obviously if you are over 25, use a MCW or book a cheaper class it'll be less. They also give you a free upgrade on every rental - subject to availability.

 The whole process took about an hour. I didn't want to wait for them to pick up the car and bring it to me, so I went with them to pick it up and take it directly from there. They drove me 4 levels down in the RavShefa parking lot. They have a LOT of cars there! Tons. with Avis stickers on them. I'm not sure that they're all actively in the fleet, although, if that's the case, why would they be there? It seemed like they took up the whole parking lot. I returned it at the Avis on King David, (the branch was empty then) and I asked how long the wait would be when renting a car by them. They told me it can take an hour, it depends on the day - there's no express check out there or at any other branch in Israel  - even if they advertise Avis Preferred, bec. the Israeli laws don't allow it. So I guess it can take a while anywhere, not just in the airport.

When looking at some car rental sites, I noticed on some that different companies in Ben Gurion have different standards. For example, Budget clearly showed a symbol for a shuttle, while Hertz and Europecar for example, showed pickup in airport itself.
  Is that the case? Do some companies still have the cars right at the airport?

I tried and it works.

however, for some reason, if you dont have everything correctly filled in, when you get your second try, it will only give you a fraction of the options.

try filling everything correctly, and in the meantime, I'll check out what the problem might be.

 sent U an email

 but Yes BTW what kind of high season? yur guy is Ripping U off!

 OK my quote includes a Free Upgrade  whats the difference ALL that matters is how much the person will have to pay in the end! and that they are Confirmed at the time of the res with the car type they want or higher.

 back to the drawing board for You

 Everyone just FYI if SF is in fact able to secure a better rate I myself will end up reserving via his contact so I actually Hope that he is able to secure a reliable lower rate then what I can get, as I will save some $$, but if things stay as is I can practically drive from Yeru to Meron and back and pay for the gas with the savings , and have a few $s left over still

 its that much more by SF at this time. Im sure that he might over time be able to get a better deal but right now thats simply not the case

The point is, if the guy renting has a card that would give him an upgrade, he won't receive it, as he got it already.

So I should basically look for a lower ranked car.

Still informing.

 yep and I bet it wont make a differnce yur guy will still be more only by less of a gap

 also mine would be Confirmed,by him relying on whatever it is he has, he has to hope that when he gets there they have someting to Upgrade him to.Ive been there when All the companies were very short on cars = No Ups given at the Office Unles it was already a Confirmed 1. Sort of like getting Upgraded on a flight. If instead of using whatever a person has and goes with the free up when the Carrier gives it , well if they sell out of FC or Biz then the poor sap is left sitting in Coach (I just might be that poor sap comes next Thurs, I want to see how UAs new system works and didnt UP at the time of purchasing my LA tkt)

 didnt U have a WMC? that should take care of it. Or do someone I know who had a few dots on his new car that was dark blue so the white premier showed, turns by chance he parked the car just where some kids ended up having a mud throwing fight and hit the door and just so happened to have covered those spots.

of cause when he returned the car the guy sees the mess and simply touches it to see its nothing but some mud and proceeds to check the car in as it went out and my friend went on his merry way to the Club

I do, the rental was paid on my CO PP card, will file a claim soon and see what happens.

They also dinged the person returning next to me for a small scratch that they allegedly made, so it seems to be a common practice.
I cant stress this enough, but even if you're dead tired from the flight be sure to do a thorough walk-around and make sure they mark every imagined dot on the car on the sheet.

Never had any such problem with dozens of Avis rentals in the US, even times that I actually did put a scratch on the car.

 not so fast, if a person owns a car and has auto ins then the CC is secondary and they 1st need to file a claim with their ins company. If they dont own a car and thusly dont have any ins :-) , then the CC is Primary

 Sure a person can claim they dont have any auto ins and sign the papers saying that, but Ins Fraud is something I wouldnt touch with a 1000 foot pole

even if it does no company in Israel will let U drive away w/o some type of coverage for the CDW, be it a WMC or buying theirs

 the couple of times I had some real damage due to an accident I was asked if I contacted my ins company and told them No since I dont have 1. I had to sign some papers they sent me to that extent, signing that you dont when U in fact do have car ins is Ins FRAUD

But since I do have car insurance, if something G-D forbid happens, does it go to my private auto insurance or my wmc?

Worse than the $125 they held me up for an hour to type up a "report" and then it took another full half an hour for a shuttle to come that time of night which nearly made me miss my 1:20am friday morning flight.  It was a good thing I left the Ramada a full 3 hours before my flight or I never would have made it!

The nice thing was myself and the other victim convinced some other people to not rent from Avis TLV while we waited.
If they're going to try to make a quick buck off their customers it felt good to cost them a few more bucks while waiting for the report...boy were they furious.

Plus you should have seen how steamed they were when I refused to sign the "I agree with the account of this report and it is correct"
They didn't want to release the report until I signed but in the end they just signed it themselves and gave it to me.

Because Avis TLV is not really Avis.

It's some crappy no-good Israeli company licensing and dirtying the Avis name.

No idea what category it was, but it was def. an upgrade over the Getz and it only had a couple thousand kms. on it.  They claimed it was higher than a Mazda 3 which is what I asked for.

If that's the case, did you have something else going for you that got them to upgrade you to a mazda3 (or higher), or was it just plain some sweet talking at the airport? And if you really didn't have anything, were you really willing to walk away with a getz?

They still respect Avis First/Pres Club/CHM members but they just give them minor upgrades as well as allow them to pick up the car (but not drop off) at the terminal.

ive rented dozens of cars in israeli avis and never had that isuue. if you reserve a mazda 3 thetll give you someting in that same catergory. are you referring to that they might not give you an actual mazda 3? if so that would be quite ridiculous. as far as respecting chairmans club, if you speak with the chairmans desk, theyll tell you that chairmans is only "binding" in the us and canda. so avis in israel gives a double upgrade. in jerusalem only up to a mazda 6 if available, and in the airport, even a mercedes (h) if you reserve a mazda 6 (f)  if you reserved a b, you shouldve gotten a d (mazada3 or similar) which is probably what you got as i assume youre referring to a renault fluence which last time i rented, was still considered a d even though its bigger than a mazda 3

 dont forget gas is $7.40 a gal  and almost every where you go in the Citys you will have to pay for Parking either a lot or meters or muni meter. so U might be better off planing you stay where U might not need to have a car for the entire time. get a parking tkt and it will cost what the total rental does and then the rental company will tack on a very nice fee for handling it

 I wouldnt say they are Crooked what so ever. They ahve their T&Cs and a person just has to follow them. Have you ever rented in Costa Rica ? teh Israelis are extremely tame in comparison

 It seems you didnt do your homework (checked the car before driving off ) and how do you know someone didnt scratch  the car, they dont care that you didnt do it the Question is was it there when you took it, since you didnt go over it the Only person to Blame is yourself

 My sheet had x's in places on a car that had only 1200 kms on it and I wasnt even able to find what they Xed off. then you used a Link that got it extra cheap so they probably wanted to make up for some of that loss, the same happens to me here in teh US, last time in LA my 3 day weekend cost me $25.50 for a compact instead of the going rate of $68 (Codes and coupons) when I dropped it off they went over it with a fine tooth comb. This weekend Im paying $32 when the going rate is $72 so I expect that again they will do a full check.

 did u small talk with the guy when you brought the car back that was doing the checking eg , how do U like it over here compared to T3 , for a CatD is this the best car you guys have , if yes or no ask why.  If not again you are to Blame.

 You may be right why should you have to do this, but Im 1000% sure you do it at a Hotels checkin to try and score a better room or view. While simply presenting or saying you Status to them should be enough, wait not even that since it should be there on the res for them to see, yet we all know that the small talking will many a time be the difference between a nice room or view to a Great one

 But I will admitt I dont have a wife that is fighting for attention at those times. So simply explain to her when you Must turn your full attention away from her in order to make sure things hopefully go smoothly during certain times

In my experience renting in israel, when they start telling you that there are scratches you tell the (low-level) employee checking the car that you want to "work with him". 50 shek usually works but sometimes it takes 100. I have had the extreme case where it cost me 200, but Machmoud at Hertz in Jrslm took a carton of (duty-free) Marlboro Lights instead, which wasn't that tough for me...

 when I was living over there last time and had a car, the Petuach Hovah was more money as the car got bigger and more money.(bigger engine size)

The PH is 3rd party liability, so Im sure its a profit center for the rental companies . Also a Honda Civic which cost way less then my car was alot more for reg ins. Best not to apply the way things are done over here to over there

  To those of you that have used  http://www.carrentalisrael.com/car-rentals.asp  ,I had a few questions to ask you before I go ahead with it, if you can address them all :D.

1- Who are we dealing with? Is this Avis direct, and if so, why does it seem so much cheaper than all other sites?   

2- All that's not included in the price, is the third party insurance of around $14 a day, so for a 2 week rental i would tack on about $200 on top of the $150 that's being quoted for a Mazda 3? (I do have World mc)

3- From your experience, is the $27 airport fee already included in the quoted price of $150?

4- And finally, what is the exact price I pay? I understant that they have a rate in Shekel which they convert to Dollars. So at what point do they do the conversion, so I know my price in dollars. Is it now when I make the reservation, or when I take out the car, or when I return it and need to pay?

Thanks for all your help!

1. 3rd party company, but if you give them your wizard number the res will show up on avis.com but it may look a little funny.
2-3 Sound right, but the $27 charge is not included in the rate.
4 There's no way to know the full price until you get to Avis and they will tell you the total price in dollars.  For me the actual daily rate was even cheaper than quoted.

What's the cheapest I can rent a car in Israel from July 21 to August 11. If it's not much more, I would take it for a full month.

I was in Israel January '09, and the difference between a 2 week rental to a month was around $200-300.

I'm looking to rent a minivan in israel for a couple of days, must have 8 passengers. I see that avis has a 9 passenger, but it's manual. Hertz has a Hyundai H-1, 9 pass, automatic but I'm not sure  if it drives like a US minivan or a truck. Any ideas? Is renting over the web the best way here?

has anyone used baruch fryman in jerusalem before.  He just gave me an all-in monthly rate of 570, which is well below everyone else.  Appears to be affiliated with sixt shlomo
Ive used baruch frieman many times and I believe his prices are the best except for what steve 2 was able to do with avis this past winter (which he said he no longer can do)
he is affiliated with budget (sixth) and also avis. He gives the best rate that he can which the last few years has been most of the time with avis

Finally decided to join the forum after Eli's request.

Dan or Steve 2 do you know if I reserve a car with avis online or with a rep for Jerusalem if it includes tax and cdw? On the phone the rep says it includes tax. I have a hunch that it does not.

Also online they are not chrging extra for high season in the summer when you call agents here they quote much more due to high season. Can they charge me high season if my reservation is confirmed at the regular price?

 1- what tax? only an Israeli (be it if born there or became afterwards) has to pay tax = VAT , but if an Oleh rserves it and still has a non-Israeli passport and has been in the country less than 90 days and his non-Israeli PP doesnt ahve any mention of their Israeli PP then they probably can get away w/o paying the VAT

2- I would assume if you have  aprint out showing a rate less then what they are charging when you pick it up they will change the rate to the cheaper one. Sort of like an airline tkt you purchased a tkt NY-LA for $298 ai and then afterwards some time they raise the amount but the fare basis still stays teh same , you arent charged any extra when you check-in

 Thats why I always told everyone I booked for to print out the confirmation and take it along with you. BTW its a good idea for Hotels and anything else you might have paid for or reserved for.

 3-as for CDW I assume (and thats very Dangerous to do) that if U didnt tell them you had a WMC (World Master Card) that they charged for CDW, or they simply might not have and when you get there and dont have a WMC will then and there charge you. Its best to know Exactly what their Quote included and didnt some places will leave off the Airport tax of $27. alot of this is so that their Quote will be less then any others and Bam when you arrive its too late to look around and see if you can get a better deal. A Walk-in usually will pay more $$ then anyone else, as you are at their mercy and they know it, thats anywhere

 come people are we trying to prove to the others that Jews arent smart?

 how can someone really think that they can PM someone from Israel at 2:30pm Israeli time (7:330am NY) and expect to have someone make them a car res to pick it up at 3:30pm Israeli Time that same day at a local branch not TLV. thats with wanting to get a quote 1st of what it will cost before making the res to boot

 bout the only thing possible wuld be a pick-up at the Airport if that but later in the evening

 and having 770 as part of your handle well

At the moment it's about $6.75.
 In the beginning of the week it was 6.35 nis a litter in Yeru, and 6.18 in Tiberias. Now it went up about 20 agurot. Still, with the dollar being about 3.85 nis, it keeps a gallon under $7. STILL TOO EXPENSIVE!

I also did a fair amount of research and spoke to someone who indicated there is a van automatic with 8 pass, but they are overbooked. Some places had vans with 7, but doesnt help us too much. Some of the Avis sites show a Hyundai H1 which has 8-9 pass, but can't seem to book.

If your friend can change his plan, I'd suggest the following. As the price after this friday increases because of the season, a fast on top of my head calculation tells me, that renting this friday for 1 month (meaning to return it a bit earlier then you wanted), cost the same as taking just the time that you needed it (2 weeks).

Tip: second driver is very cheap in israel.

 which makes great sense if the person who is renting happens to be in Israel now, otherwise if the car is rented by this Fri and the person who needs it isnt there and is rented by someone else then the person renting it will have to use their CC and be a Legal Tourist to avoid the VAT and be very close to the other person as they will hav eto pay them in ca$h in order to keep the car covered under the CDW WMC

 Personally there are very few people Id do this for, as too many things can go wrong and leave me paying for everything and chasing after the other person

 about all they can do is work it out to do everything theyd need a car for in as few days as possible and to return it early. This is Peak Peak time and thusly why the rates are High.

 So if they wil be staying in a city for say the 1st few days , dont get a car between the streets being parking lots and having to pay to park everywhere today, its alot cheaper to use Taxis

 why would you expect Israel to be any different then any other rental location on Earth, = you cant reserve a particular car say a Chevy Implala but only the Class type in this case a Full size car .

so with the Mazda3 its considered a Cat D car so they can give you any car that is in that Cat. off hand there are Subarus and Renaults that are also in the same class as the Mazda3

 that said you can always try and switch the car say in Jerusalem but they too might not have any and be preparred to waste alot of your time if you chose to do so.

Upon returning to Avis having used carrentalisrael.com when a cat D was still 42 Shekel a day,(INSTEAD OF THE CURRENT PRICE OF 145 Shekel A DAY), we were greeted by a friendly woman at 11 pm, who barely looked at the vehicle, and didn't look for scratches, even though it was a new vehicle, and went in to her office, and promptly brought me out my reciept, without me having to step foot in there. As soon as I finished bringing my luggage over to the front of the building, the shuttle arrived, without any other passengers, and promptly drove us (very slowly) to the airport.

When your getting a Getz or another small car the gas burns quicker then a mazda 3 class but if your getting a mazda 2 or even an accent the gas is the same or by a mazda 2 maybe a drop less then a mazda 3. And that is if you happen to get a mazda 3.

I see that the guys here confirm what I wrote earlier on the forum.

Mazda 3 level burns less than Cat below.

Even the big cars don't seem to burn more than a mazda 3, such as volvo S80, mercedes E200.

Im not familiar with those terms. They said that rate includes insurance if I have a World MC and if not it will be another $5 a day (total $58).  They said bec. I am a tourist I don't have to pay any tax.

I booked 9/19-9/21 and 9/26-9/28 and got the same rate for each.

I didn't look around yet but I'm assuming this is the best rate I'll get esp. bec. its Sukkos!

In Israel there are 2 insurances that you are forced to get.
Collision damage waiver: Covered by most World Mastercards, otherwise you need to purchase this.
Liability: Everyone needs to purchase this unless your rate specifically includes it already.

So $48 covers liability and $58 covers liability and collision

I just rented in Israel (Eldan) and I was told that the CDW included has a 1700 Shekel deductible (which I refused cuz I paid with WMC, it knocked off 25 shekel a day or approx 8 dollars) For no deductible they wanted more.

renting cars from ben gurion airport these days is a disaster especially if your travelling with kids. they moved all the car rental companys off site. and when i say off site i mean 15 min drive away. and to add insult to injury the bus that comes to collect arriving passangers comes about every 15 min aswell. and it drives through the entire terminal to pick up any ppl who rented a car form any of the car rental companies. unless you have avis preffered they will come and deliver the car to you. if you book through an agent of shlomo sixt you can very often get a good price. recently ive been renting with a company called tamir they have very good prices during the high peak seasons so they must be good even during the off peak. aswell they do not have a airport location so all the paper work is done via email you send them your drivers licsense passport and credit card and they prepare all the paper work in advance. when you arrive they are holding up a sign for you with your name apeearing on it . they BRING the car to you which is a incredible advantage ! and then you just sign off and your set to go !! they are an excellent and easy company to deal with.

 Sounds to me like you are describing any other airport anywhere in the World, as most have their car rental facilities away from the main terminals. And more and more like ONT,LAS,PHX etc have a dedicated building for it where 1 also needs to get on a generic shuttle car rental bus, so TLV is simply falling into line with what can be found elsewhere.

I do agree its a pain

understood that all airport have off campus rentals but each company has buses which are driving non stop picking up passengers . having 1 bus being mesavev lchol hamachanos is a disgust. its a way for israeli franchised car rentals to save a buck. no other rental company in the u.s would treat customers the way these israelis do .

 I guess you never rented at FLL or LAS or ONT etc etc as more and more US Airports are moving to a separate building located within a 15 min drive from the Terms and the only way to get there is by an Airport bus that serves just the Car Rental Building. My pt is TLV was late in coming to this party. At EWR and JFK you need to schelp onto a train and then get off at a stop and walk over to the car rental booths, I like TLV alot better then having to do this, both EWR and JFK dont have Car Rental shuttle Vans circling any longer and havent for years

 I dont know the exact # of buses but Ive seen more more then 1, when I was there.

Why do I have a feeling that if you just missed the bus and it had either no one on it or 1 or 2 people youd be here complaining, why did it leave when it wasnt Full with people. It leaves and heads over to the CRF on a fixed time basis, I highly doubt it simply goes around and around at the Term till it fills up, since there probably are people waiting at the CRF to take it back to check-in for their flights

I liked the old way much better myself but you are obiviously venting w/o knowing the facts

 no need just if you dont know what the facts are dont post what you dont know to be true or not. You could have posted , I like the old way they did things better then to make up things which arent true (although at times maybe a bus will circle they usually dont and I have seen them arrive at the CRF empty of any people)

 remember that other people will be reading what you post and can take what you post at face value and thereby you have feed them misinformation and got them mad for no reason, or worse had them decide to do something else which otherwise they wouldnt have done.

i dont think its worth it for anyone to rent a carfrom bengurion terminal unless they come with the car to the terminal , otherwise it is a tremendous pain nothing like any other CRF in any other airport.
find a small car rental company that does not have a airport facility and therefor will come to the airport and deliver the car to you at arrivals.
ive spoken to many many people who have toold me about their disasterous occurance at ben gurion. i advised them to do as such and they were very happy.

 I dont but once had someone who was and they were dropping me off at home and so I went on the monorail, since I was returning from Yom Tov in Israel I was loaded down with bags and it was a hassle and glad I didnt have to go thru it every time I came into EWR as my car is parked there instead.

 I also didnt see what the whole fuss is about at TLV although I preferred the old way, if I was traveling with a family I would simply go by myself to get the car and then drive over to the Term and pick everyone else up. Now if an off -airport company is reliable and will charge me the same as what U I can get a car for from my reg outfit then it could be thats a better solution. But teh last thing Id want is to wait and wait for them to get there

 so till they get there you will be responsible for the condition of the car. that may work for you it doesnt for me. @ SAV its the same way pull into a spot and drop the keys off, too many people have posted (on another site) how they were dinged for stuff that they knew wasnt the case when they pulled in. I go inside and ask that an agnet come out and Close me out with an inspection , never had any problem that way

If Tamar works for you go with it, I dont care for their drop off system so I wont, I dont wnat my car being looked at if Im not there to dispute it especially in Israel

I waited a full 40 minutes for a shuttle from the rental facilities to the airport and of course the shuttle itself takes 15 minutes to get to the terminal.  And that was after fighting with Avis for 45 minutes about a tiny scratch I didn't cause.

It's nice that Avis gives elites their cars in the terminal still, but you need to allow a lot of time returning them!

There's no other airport in the US where that would happen.

 never said I like the new way, and thats why most likely for Succos I will take Nesher to Yeru and then get over to Avis and drop the car off in Yeru as well. Besides with YT being Weds night and flying back 4am on Sun why pay for the car to sit for 3 days unused. If in teh end a friend comes along then I will p/u at BG at the Term and still return in Yeru.

but I dont see them changing how they do things any time soon

Ive returned cars at LAS and had to wait a long time for them to check me in due to so many others doing it too and there being only 1 person checking in cars, at least the shuttle buses ran frequently and the bus ride to the term is also close to 15 mins. ONT if you miss the bus depending on the time of day you can wait awhile for the next one, advantage has been I rent from a Local Edition so they come to my Hotel and pick me up and I drop off at the CRF and have waited a few times 15+ mins till a bus came and again depending on the hour you are dropping off it can be a nice wait to be checked in. LAX is usally 1-2-3 but alot more for the car and tkt

 what other Countries have you rented in? I find outside the US (never rented in Canada) that they go over the car with a fine tooth comb. Costa Rica makes Israel look tame! and I got lucky once that my flight was delayed otherwise no way would I have made it, Europe is no better

 I agree usually if you are renting and or dropping off at a Corp owned location in the US they hardly ever do a look over and simply are interested in where the fuel gauge is at and the mileage on the car. But then again cars cost 1/3 - 1/2 of what they do Overseas.

 It seems Tamar works for You so stay with them and might work for anyone who doesnt mind dropping off and locking the car with it Not being checked in. I want an All clear piece of paper least they decide to claim something was damaged afterwards, and even if I didnt do it say someone pulled into the spot next to me and hit the car when I was already airborne Tamar wont know that and will charge me for any damage and Rightly so. thats why it wont work for me, Im not saying dont rent from a Tamar, Im only saying why I wont

 hey you are talking to someone who figured out how to get to DT Rome by taking a bus and subway for 4 Euro roundtrip, who does the same in PRG, takes the public bus for $2 in HNL to Waikiki. Its all part of my Game , true I usually only travel with my roller board carry-on . In London you can take the HEX (non-stop Airport Expreess Train for $20+ and then a taxi) or wait till 9:30am M-F and jump on the Underground and for apx $12 have a transit pass for the whole day. VIE non-stop its $10 more then the train that takes 8 mins longer and ends up being closer to where Im staying or the tram stop I need

 BTW most of the time Id say once I get to Nesher it takes no more then 10 mins before we were on the way. cant ever remember taking a Taxi from BG usually its a car or Nesher

 actually its not that far off the point, since its a very reasonable thing to workout where its best to p/u and d/o the car, and what will it cost not to p/u it up @ TLV but in a city instead

 at least I do this calculation almost every time I rent anywhere and even Stateside when I will be staying at a hotel by the airport I arrive at lately I pick up the car the following day if it wont be a weekly rate Im booking it on

 So IMO a person should also look into not p/u at TLV and run the #s to see what will work best for them. A benefit is not having to deal with the shuttle buses @TLV, the neg not having a car until the moment you fly out. No clear answer for Everyone, and each person has to work out to see what will work bets for them = the cost of alternative transport from/to TLV is apart of the cost of Renting

The smallest car is NOT always cheaper even if you pay less $$ for the rental.

The drain on the engine when you climb the hills uses more gas then the midsize cars . the tiny cars are only good if you are driving on the highway. I learnt my lesson the hard way

And although I hated the old branch, this one is very efficient and nice. (they said they had the same workers, but I noticed a different manager and I didn't see all of the workers that used to work in the old one)

Price for 3 days, incl. insurance, young driver fee, taxes, is $81.

I went through Travcom, I paid 350 shek($84 plus VAT),  (and I got a double upgrade to a Mazda 2) so I would've saved a lot with you.  Maybe next time. How would I book through you?

In general if you book on Avis through the Israeli website avis.co.il as opposed to the US website, many times it is significantly cheaper. I have gotten really good deals like that. It's not always like that but its worth a try

150 NIS per day? Is that a good price now?

 probably if you arent a Tourist (they have been checking the Visa alot lately) and are under 25 especially under 23 and dont have a WMC

But IMO very expensive if you are a legal Tourist and have the WMC

 as it works out to over $40 a day and I paid $203 for 7 days Succoth time with the airport fee.Ok that was for a Cat C which is an Accent but got an Up to Mazda3 and a catD then was just a few $$ more for the week so alot less than this 150 sheks

If it was really a mistake by that agent then I would expect Avis TLV to tell me that I really owe double the price...or at least that they're being really nice by allowing the mistake.
They did neither.

 Or they would simply charge the agent as Airlines do then the agent has to eat it if it was their fault, so if this outfit put in an error rate Avis would still give it to you as an airline doesnt stop a person from flying, and then will bill the agent

 Or maybe Avis was giving them deals no other agent got, possible but I dont believe it

Chayat has a problem apparently, that you don't get mileage credited.

For people who think its nothing, whoever quotes my mileage number by avis (and I get credited, receives per rental $10 from me (if unsure, ask me first).

I got/get $52 as a tourist, incl all insurances without wmc for 1 day rental from the airport for mercedes s200/volvo s80.

Unfortunately, this rate has been stuck on my personal name, and cannot be transferred.

For $42 I got a mazda 6, with the same conditions as above.

They have close business ties with Toyota (Toyota distributes some Daihatsu cars and owns 51% of Daihatsu), but they're a separate company. I don't think their brand/quality can be compared to Toyota.

I second using SuperFlyer! Although the 1xx Hayarkon office is being remodeled and the office is a converted van and they gave me an incredibly shady feeling that I would be charged for every scratch, there were no problems using Avis. 

It also made me feel a little better to walk around the car with the agent, take multiple pictures (what else are 16gb memory cards for) and add scratches and dents to his pre-damage list.

They still respect Avis First/Pres Club/CHM members but they just give them minor upgrades as well as allow them to pick up the car (but not drop off) at the terminal.

Dan, does a Presidents club need to alert Avis beforehand that you need a car at the terminal or just go to the Avis desk in the terminal?

I don't know anything about this particular vehicle, but some minivans have to options for the configuration of 2nd row seats (i.e. row behind the driver), either two individual seats (with space in between), or  bench/row (kinda like the back row) which seats three people.

I think you are right the Europe version Mazda 5 seems to have a small 3rd middle seat in the second row. There does not seem to be much luggage room when all seats are up. Pricing difference between this and a regular size 7 seater minivan is very small, but i have a feeling the gas mileage on this is much better. Anyone actually rent this?

I have rented one and indeed some versions have a 3rd seat belt in the second row.  The US version only comes as a 6 seater.

Luggage space is two-three duffel bags in the back and one on the floor in the middle.  If you have wheeled bags, they better be carry-on sized or else they will not fit in the 'trunk' of this car.  You can fold down the back seats to increase luggage space, but then you obviously lose a seat.

thanks for the report, I did rent the Mazda 5 for part of my trip, and as you say it had an extra jump seat, but the seat belt was not fully installed, it had the over the shoulder but not the part it clicks into. At the time I only needed it for 6. With the seat belt it is doable for 7 but they better be small people. Gas mileage was somewhere inbetween the Mazda 3(which is good in my experience) and the Kia Carnival(relative guzzler).

ii got charged underage (21-23) with hertz, but then again- i wasn't using an agent. Sometimes they can waive the underage. They also can put in an ishur for an upgrade on a car, allow under 25 a class d etc.

Would you of been able to do a better rate than that for end of July?? Whoever else I tried was way more than that.
And I believe that he did get the high season fee waived because on the final invoice there was a zikui for a couple hundred dollars for high season.

I'm sure he got you cheaper than full rate HS, otherwise he wouldn't be an agent, but paying an extra $30 per day isn't getting it "waived".

I was in Israel last year succos. I rented in TLV airport for my full 21 Days stay. The total price came out to be $427

I rented from budget on the US site

The base price per day was $7 !! I booked the smallest car - Hyundai Getz, they upgraded me to a Mazda (Shalosh) 3

I had an mastercard world so that saved me about $3 a day.

$7 x 21 is much less than $427 - the difference was airport tax and insurance
Title: Re: Cheap Israel Car Rentals Master Thread
Post by: Name Changed on September 16, 2011, 01:10:27 PM
I just checked on Budget.com and they are still offering a base price of $7 over succos

it works - read my above post
Title: Re: Cheap Israel Car Rentals Master Thread
Post by: YudiG on September 17, 2011, 02:36:04 PM
The price on budget for this succos is about $12 base per day...is the only insurance that is mandatory the CDW which is an additional $12 per day?

My friend doesn't have MC world.

There are a couple other options for insurance such as theft protection and supplemental liability...I just want to confirm what is a must and what is not...for a 19 day rental it seems that including the CDW it will price out at $375 total...

Does a tourist pay the taxes?

Thanks!

Mazda3 $147.

Inc. insurance, Airport fee. This is a non- WMC rate, so there is a damage deductible (approx. $400), which wont be covered by WMC. If you want a WMC rate, I'm sure Noach car will quote you one soon.

If you are interested, PM me you name pickup and drop-off time, and email address.

AFAIK, if you only used the insurance on the card, there's no deductible. You pay whatever Hertz charges for the damages, and you work it out with the credit card co. (If you want, you can ask them to take the charge off of your balance until they credit you, this way you don't have to pay.) If you used Hertz's CDW, your card will not cover anything, and you will pay whatever Hertz charges for a deductible

Post by: shmuelb on December 13, 2011, 03:21:41 AM
The manager of Albar / Thrifty in Romema Yerushalayim told me last time I was there that you do not get reimbursed for the VAT on the damage. Anyone can confirm or deny? That could be more than the deductible (for $4k loss, you pay ~640) so it would be better to use their CDW (~500 depending on car).

They are good at maxing out the charges for damages here, I do not know how to compare to USA. Once a bus hit me slowly and the back window broke with some minor damage to the bumper, got charged $3800. I got the money back from the CC after around 9 months so I paid interest and what was worse, since then carry a balance on CC's  :'( (but its good for credit history). I used to always pay up every month but then the numbers became unreal, abstract and the debt got out of hand... (You can always add ~50 Shek to have $0 deductible but that is per day and adds up if you rent alot)

Thanks!

What do you mean? The CC would take off the charge before they finish processing the insurance payment?

I once rented a car from a heimeshe company and discovered a few big scratches near the rear wheel. They charged me about $950. I called the CC (Mastercard) and asked them: I'm filing a claim to get the money back anyway, can you just put the not add it to my balance until I get a response to the claim. They told me no prob. I saw the amount taken off my available credit, but I didn't have to pay any of it until I was credited - and then they put the charge through, which evened e/t out.

The biggest is a 9 seater (1+8) manual.  or an automatic for double the price.

What are the dates?
MCW?

Be careful renting from those haimish type guys. I had a friend who was taken to a din torah by one of these guys because there was a problem with the car and he wanted him to pay a few thousand shekel.

Can you give more details of your dilemma? Are you coming by yourself or with family? Do you mind going the extra mile to save money on your trip? What are you planning on doing here? Sometimes taxis are cheaper. You can come from the airport for around 18-38 shekel if you want.

Question :)

In December I had a small issue when returning a car at Hertz e.g. they said I made a big dent on the trunk when in reality there was a dent already there and in fact was marked (albeit with the incorrect symbol) on the paper they give you when taking the car.

They called me a week or so after the rental to fight with me but after I explained to them the error and how their attendant agreed that they put down the wrong symbol, they closed the open rental contract and processed the final regular charge as they should.

Any reason to suspect I'll have trouble with the same branch on my upcoming rental, is there anything they could do retroactively? to play it safe should I just use a different branch?

TIA

I'm not in Israel - but I would say you should walk around the car with the guy when he's marking down the dents. Make sure he marks down every single scratch and dent.

I went with someone to rent a car and the car they wanted to give him looked like it just went mud sliding.  The renter told the agent that he's not taking the car unless they take it for a carwash. He didn't care that it was dirty, its just that you can't possibly see all the dents and scratches when the car is very dirty.

My point is that if they don't mark down the dents when you take the car, they will blame everything on you. You shouldn't hesitate to point out all the scratches.

correct, however can a rental agency charge you additional fee/payment for damages on a previous rental that they claim are your responsibility 2-3 months down the road after the original rental agreement has been closed, the charge processed and credit card statement paid?

I think there's no reason for you to worry at all,
once they closed the contract the system probably wouldn't bring it up again,
even if you would'v made a dispute with your cc company,I don't think there's a problem going back to that branch, my friend made a chargeback and didn't have any issues,
if that doesn't put you at ease, I would call up that branch innocently, give them the contract no. and ask them you just wanna make sure its paid and current, they'll probably tell you its closed,

p.s. sorry for the bump

No prob, thx! I spoke with them today about a new reservation and perhaps if G-d forbid the system had something flagged they would have brought up the issue...once the charge appears on the CC statement, the rental agreement is considered closed AFAIK.

From a legal perspective, they can't charge a CC # on a past rental agreement months later without a signature can they?

PSA:

The Hertz romema branch today wouldn't accept my Citi AA Visa Signature Platinum card car rental insurance even though I had a letter to prove that I am covered in Israel. They claimed that they only recognize the coverage when the benefit administrator is Visa or the CC company themselves but not in my case were a 3rd party administrates the benefit such as 'Chubb Insurance' which covers my particular card.

Was this just a sneaky move to make an extra $50, or have others experienced this as well? I ended paying for the insurance though I put it on a Amex Plat so perhaps I can file a complaint with them or Hertz?

lol.. it means they know how to smooth talk in hebrew... and no i didnt check recently but i rented from them in the past and never had a problem with either of those cards... i didnt think to ask again... maybe i should. i guess ill let u know if i do find out..

what you want to check is who the benefit administrator is for the car insurance i.e. who will pay out. if it's visa themselves, then you'll be ok. but if it's a third party such as 'chubb' insurance' on my citi aa visa, they won't accept it - supposedly - for whatever reason....:(

Noach keep up the good work, I will be back

Good news to report and a special shout out of thanks to Noach for all the help!

When I returned the car to hertz today, I asked the CSR why my Citi AA Platinum Visa card's insurance (and the letter that proves it) wasn't accepted and an extra $42 was tacked on.

She said that Visa told them that they don't cover Israel. So in hebrew I began explaining what the term benefit administrator means vis a vis Visa (no pun intended) and while Visa may have correctly told them that they don't cover me, they have an agreement with Chubb Insurance group who do - hence the letter of proof.

Furthermore, I told them, that being that the renter has to pay upfront in the event of damage and then seek reimbursement from the CC company/3rd party  - you guys get paid from me so what is the difference if I can then get money back or not?

And so, she nodded in agreement and took off the fee though she did ask for the original CC to redo the contract so I just took back the keys, went home and came back :)

She said that I shouldn't have any trouble on the next rental so that's good news and all is well that ends well!

Just an unsolicited shout out and thanks to Noach.  Rented two cars over Pesach through Noach (from Hertz).  Price and service were outstanding!  Even got him involved in trying to upgrade one of the cars to a Minivan the day before Erev Pesach, when Hertz told me none were available until after Pesach.  He got the job done...Kudos to Noach -- he's very good at what he does, and the managers of the Hertz branches in J-lem know him.  Thanks!

He said I can not use the CitiMCW for CDW because I can not use my USA DL here because I do not have a stamp in my passport from the last year. I need to use my Israeli license and then not covered.

Anyone heard of this?

anyone see the ad in the hamodia for a lease starting at 1,200 NIS? looks tempting though i imagine you are responsible for maintenance and insurance which add up plus you're committed for the year or more vs month to month.

Post by: shmuelb on July 23, 2012, 03:46:41 PM
Thrifty.com is generally by far the cheapest, $12/day insurance, 14+/day for the car, check their site. It is Albar in Israel. With the MCW, you have CDW but you have to pay the 3PLC of 12/day. Without the MCW, you can pay almost the same price but you will have a deductible of approx. 500 whereas with the MCW, it is a few dollars cheaper, no deductible, but the car rental charges for damage and the client gets repaid from the cc. See the T&C's on the site.

The issue is I think that there may be a peak season surcharge of 12/day.

Noach car can get pretty good rates, in my experience from Hertz through NoachCar I got upgrades and you should get points from Hertz #1 Gold Club if you rent from Hertz through NC.

i just wanted to give a shout out for Noach (http://noachcar.co.il/) for getting us a great rate ($23/day, $12/shabbos Aug.1-16)
and for taking care of our hiccups (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=18599.msg272821#msg272821) along the way.
I was impressed bec. i had a back up res. and i called to change it just to see, and the rate would have changed for the whole rental (up about $100).
I also got a pretty decent upgrade (res. the Daihatsu Sirion and got a Honda Civic) 
Thank you Noach  :)

Does anyone have experienced using a World MasterCard to decline coverage at Europcar in TLV?  I called that location and they told me that they don't accept the credit card coverage, and you must purchase CDW and TP insurance from them.

I know what my WMC covers. The question is what Europcar's policy actually is in Israel.  I'm not sure if the agent really knew what he was talking about, and if he did, whether there is any way around this issue.

You should confirm how much Europcar will charge you for their required insurance. You may find that it's still cheaper than the alternatives.

Noach car can get pretty good rates, in my experience from Hertz through NoachCar I got upgrades and you should get points from Hertz #1 Gold Club if you rent from Hertz through NC.

They show up on my #1 Gold club account. I think that as long as the name and address is the same, it works by itself. I doubt you can get it done manually, see T&C's.

For Avis, are you renting for a few days? Numerous times? Check out the M&M promo!
Title: Re: Cheap Israel Car Rentals Master Thread
Post by: shmuelb on August 21, 2012, 08:12:42 AM
Here is some more info about the Avis promo, double check if it is still good.

Lousy text as its translated by google, original text only exist in german

worth 2010, at Avis loyalty really - because the more often you rent a car from us, the more bonus miles you get. Collect as up to 3,000 award miles per rental!

As a Miles & More member , you benefit from:
- 1,000 miles for the second Rent
- 1,500 miles for the third Rent
- 2,000 miles for the fourth to 6 Rent
- 2,500 miles for the seventh to 10 Rent
- 3,000 miles from the 11th Rent

Sun & collect rent makes a lot of fun!

Reserve your rental car right here or call 01805-55 77 55* and enter when booking your Avis Worldwide Discount (AWD) number to:
Z638701 and Z638702 (for credit card business package = no insurance)
(Austrian: O287100 or X015110 (for credit card holders) / Swiss: X753100)

All Frequent Travellers and Senators start already at the first rental with 1000 award miles, which means we keep our promise to continue in 2009.
Please state when booking your corresponding number AWD:
Frequent Traveller: C327301
Frequent Traveller Credit Card (cost without insurance in Germany): C327302
Senators: O855701
Senators credit card (cost without insurance in Germany): O855801
(Austrian: O287200 FTN () O287400 (SEN) / Swiss: X753500 (FTN) X753700 (SEN))

And as HON Circle members you will receive double the usual mileage credit on the basis of promotion. To do this, use the appropriate AWD number:
J464701 or J464702 for HON Circle Credit Card (cost without insurance in Germany)
(Austrian: O287400 / Swiss: X753900)


Please note that the above miles are population total value, say for example that there are the 1,000 miles of the 500 base miles you receive for each of us Anmeitung + 500 bonus miles.

had the same experience until i figured out that you have to add 51 to the beggining of the rental agreemant number when filling out a retroactive points request on hertz's website, usually they have it all done within 24 hours. just a suggestion. its probably most worthwhile to get iberia avios points (which could be transferred to BA AVIOS ) as they offer the most points per day (for eg for a small car 300 compared to united which they give only 75 per day)

Thanks. I was talking about Hertz #1 Club points. right now there is a triple point promo so a rental for $32 gets you 96 Hertz points which IME are worth between 10 and 20 cents so that is worth around $10 - 20.

OTOH I assume 300 Avios are worth around $3-4.50.

I hope that helps clear up stuff.

I just rented from Hertz via NC, will update Be"H when I see points on my account. As I posted in the Hertz thread, cars show up online at Hertz.com for very cheap now.

As Has been pointed out many times on this thread that price won't include liability insurance which probably will more than double the price, add even more if you don't have a mastercard world.

Ask them for it in writing, although I don't think what they told you is true.

I need a car 8 days in tlv from nov 18-26, noach car gave me a rate of 231 all in, i can use my saphire mastercard for cdw. Am i better off with avis? My platinum awd rate givesnme 110 and liability is 14 a day plus a surcharge of $27 which equates to around 245 all in. Vat is obviously equal. Also im an avis first which helps me earn free weekends. Im just trying to figure out the benefit of noach car rental, is it worth saving the $20 total? Is avis in the airport terminal?

Avis is in the terminal. Noach can give you a price for Avis too, No extra benefits going through him though. Its up to you, what $20 is worth to you.

it was $235 including insurance for a small or $260 for a little bigger but that includes paying for shabbos.

Thanks, I already have the letter of coverage. But the letter of coverage doesn't provide any detail regarding what kind of coverage is provided under the program. So the only way to close the loop is with the Guide to Benefits (which I understand says that Israel may not be covered by the benefits, but that is where the letter of coverage comes in).

That being the case, does anyone have a copy of the Chase Sapphire WMC Guide to Benefits that they can scan/email/fax to me, or post here? I tried to get one from Chase - they said they would mail it to me, but never did.

thank you

It was with Hertz they didn't try to make me take out extra insurance that I didn't need, (last year I went with someone who rented with someone else, and the rental place made him take out extra insurance that he didn't need (costed him an extra 150 a week)).
Thank you Noach for making the rental part of my trip vey pleasant).

Update on europcar in Israel.
So........ I had reserved a car from national on orbitz. I got an email saying that it will be "fulfilled" thru Europcar in Ben gurion. I called Europcar in israel 3 times to confirm that they have my reservation. They said they yes they do.
Well........
Apparently Europcar does NOT have an official location in Ben gurion. They DO have a shady French dude walking around with a paper that is supposed to have your info on it. Once I figured out which shady guy I need to speak with, I saw that he just failed trying to screw another family renting a car. They where screaming at him "thanks for the surprise"!!
Guess what? They did not have my reservation. They DID have a different reservation for a "mere" €3200 for 2weeks ( I have no idea what that is in $s). They were really accommodating though, they offered to send me a shuttle and that we would be able "to talk about it in person" LOL!!! I politely let them know that since their reputation is so Lousy I also booked at Avis for $850 for a Mazda 5 for 2 weeks.
Moral of my story, Europcar and national rent a car are so bad they're not even worth looking at online for any type of rental. Any "official" car rental place that would even team up with the shysters at Europcar in Ben gurion is not going to get any of my business. Ever.

Is it cheaper to work  through a Hertz special offer with Ruth Rimonim (Tsfat)? going up Jan 16-18 and would take a car, but the hotel has a deal where the car (a small mazda 2) is an extra $50 for keeping it for my whole 3 day weekend. could someone beat that (i guess my only issue is that a mazda 2 is prob too small for me, my wife and our 5 and 6 yr old kids plus all our luggage, but how big do i need)? please pm me if you think you have a better deal for me (i have a sapphire preferred mastercard).

Don't you have to pay "CDW, TP and TPPD insurance." (whatever TP, TPPD stand for) either way, whomever you book with?  Besides for the WMC factor...

Also, you can choose which company to book with, they usually quote prices from reputable companies like Avis, Sixt, Budget, etc etc.  Don't they honor?

Yes, but with an agent it's included in the price. TP= Theft Protection, TPPD= Liability

Europcar is also a reliable company elsewhere in the world. In Israel ALL companies play with their own set of rules because they are franchises and will not honor reservations if they aren't making enough $.

Hi all, I'm looking for a full-size rental for 8 days in February (2/18 - 2/26). I booked a reservation with EuropCar through Expedia for a standard van at $127 for the 8 days.  After reading many of the posts in this forum, I'm a bit nervous about relying on this reservation.  I have the Sapphire preferred world mastercard which apparently can help with CDW insurance. 

Anyone have any ideas?  Should I rely on europcar or go a different route?  I'm traveling with a 2 yr old and will need a car seat.  Not sure if that changes much.  Thanks.

 I checked Eldans website to get an idea, a rental for about 2 weeks actually only went up in price about $36 for the rental to add CDW Vs mandatory only! (Could be cause their prices are so expensive anyway....)

It's included in the non-WMC rate. If you want it just tell the agent you don't want to use WMC.

Keep in mind that the WMC doesn't have a deductible while the CDW from the company has aprox $500 deductible.

Hocker should change his name to "hookUup" he just hooked me up with a really sweet deal on a Toyota verso. $54 a day $18 for Shabbos almost 2 week rental with option to extend for as long as i want. The cheapest I found by any ligit company was $68. Thanks Hocker, I will continue to use you in the future!

Just cam e back from a 6 day visit to Israel, rented with Noach Car Rental what a pleasure, everything was as they said, i got a nice upgrade because of them. It was with Hertz they didn't try to make me take out extra insurance that I didn't need, (last year I went with someone who rented with someone else, and the rental place made him take out extra insurance that he didn't need (costed him an extra 150 a week)).
Thank you Noach for making the rental part of my trip vey pleasant).

1) United WMC does not cover Israel CDW. (Same as if you don't have a WMC)
2. The rates you're seeing on Hertz.com don't include mandatory Liability abd CDW.
3. USAA will get you nowhere.
4. Officially a 21 year old can only rent the smallest acr size.

They I class which includes the Mazda 6, Ford Mondeo, and Subaru B4 is considered a full size in Israel and a standard in the US while the Chevy Malibu which in the US is a full size is called a premium in Israel.

I hope this answers your question.

I believe you are  confused or you simply aren't  doing the math! Rates on a Mazda 3 with WMC which were  $26 a day last week are now $29 which is HIGHER!

Example 1 week in J'lem for a Mazda 3

Last week: $26 X 6 + $15 (Shabbos) = $171
This week: $29 X 6 + $15 (Shabbos) = $189

That is $18 MORE than last week!

I'm assuming you have the WMC. It's a very decent price! (If it's without a WMC than it's a very good deal.)

Take into account there is an airport fee of $27 if you're picking up in the airport.

The Civic is NOT the same group as a Mazda 3, you probably got upgraded. The reason why you paid less was that last week a Mazda 3 was $26 a day and now it's $29. The price went up this week as mentioned earlier.

super flyer, many cc companies include amex DO NOT offer free CDW insurance for rental in several countries including Israel. Just asked AMEX rep.
so even if was accepted, it doesnt offer the insurence.

re a good car rental, I know an honest rental place, great service, no shticks, well priced. dont know about cheapest, but to me a frum honest person is where my biz goes.

I am somewhat concerned about posting name of biz, cause I would want only honest honorable individuals to have the info, not  "schtick machers". does it make sense?

No, not really. Businesses are in the business of making money, and money is made when you have customers. Less customers = less money, even if the customers you are avoiding are so-called "schtick machers" or "streimel owners".

Menucha, you really need to take the bigotry down a notch. This is not the first time you've openly attacked people here on DDF. If you really don't like us "schtick machers", then go find another forum to haunt. I hear the YWN Coffee Room has some openings for narrow-minded people like you...

Airport fee is $27, it would be only $27 cheaper. I believe it's a very decent rate.

I'm not saying I agree or disagree with either of you but there is a difference if you are making shtik with a Jewish person where you feel you are playing with one of your own and when you are doing it with amex.

I'm not sure how great of a deal this is..

You must reserve up front, and on these reservations they usually put on the size a manual for you!
Every KM over the 99, is 1.00nis per KM! (+vat=1.17nis)
Adding extra days is 122nis(+vat=143nis) for each day! (still with only 99km..)
There is no shabbat discount of course


We can do a regular reservation with Budget  for a manual with 350km/day! for 105 (+vat=123nis) 
and 100nis(+vat=117nis) with unlimitid km, and shabbat only 70nis....

P.S.  How big are their manual cars?

Same size as the automatics (Getz's..)   ans a few alto's

Just rented a car from Budget in Shefa via Noach...bad experience with Budget (not Noach)

First no available upgrades.  Then paperwork was almost all ready and another worker walked by and saw my license is less than a year old. He said we cant rent a car to you because your license is very new.  I explained to him that its new because my old one expired.  He said ill need the old one then.  I told him why would I carry it around..its expired! He told me "all you guys do this".  I asked...whos all and whats this.  He said all you yeshiva guys and come in here thinking they can rent with a new license.  I tried explaining I've been driving for many years.  So after checking up my name on their computer they realized I have rented from them several times in the past year.  So I was "allowed" to rent.

Then came the cars...first car he went to get it...few minutes later came back and said the car was "broken".  Next car he brought up was almost ready then another worker walked by and said gas is not full...cant give it out.  So he brought it back.  Got another car..all ready..and said oh lets just see the gas...and lo and behold...not full.  Returned that car.  Went to another car...came back a few minutes later...he said gas is not full in that car either. :o  I kept on telling the lady I was in a rush and if she can upgrade me...she said not if we have available in the class you reserved.  I said cars that dont have gas are not considered as you if have it...  Finally the 5th car came and it was with gas...and over  100,000 km on it. >:(

Then the seat belt didnt work..doors didnt lock....

Is there anything rental places here do if I complain?  or is there no such thing as that in Israel?

But, I dont really understand whats wrong with a car without full gas? I have it all the time, just bring it back with same amount. (or less, you can just earn from it...)

Not sure if he was arab or not.

I have gotten cars not full but they refused giving them to me today.  Was at Budget for 45 minutes...and the place didnt have a line...

Anything I can do?  @Noach?

Not an amazing deal, but still pretty cheap for someone that needs a car for a day, and an even better deal if they don't have WMC or a tourist Visa.

i would say no. usually the concern with return early is if it will change the type of rate you got . for ex: weekend to weekly, 3 day to weekly. but 2 day is normally just a daily rate x2

This may be a real stupid Q. Does a person need a license in order to rent a car here?  Meaning a family member came from America and can get cheaper prices because of tourist visa...but doesnt have a license (not because too young).  Can I go with them and be put on as "additional driver" and really be the only driver?

Hapeles just had an article how Cal Auto overcharged a customer that rented for a month and returned it early and they raised the price HIGHER than the monthly rate. They resolved it once Hapeles contacted them out of goodwill (Read: Bad PR), but they still believe he deserves to pay the higher rate. I wouldn't go near them with a 10 foot pole.

If you take the exit from Petach Tikva, then take a right and by the lights a left you get by a roundabout that leads to Terminal 1 and the car rentals. By that roundabout you'll find a gas station.

With Avis, you can return to T3 (if you picked up at another branch, be sure to ask them for a white card to access the parking lot at the airport). And I'm pretty sure with Hertz as well.

What do you mean directly from Hertz? By calling Hertz in the USA? Keep in mind their price quotes do not include the mandatory insurances. If you mean directly from Hertz Israel keep in mind that an agent will always be cheaper.

Booking at hertz.com with discount codes, are there any ones that are known to be good for TLV, many are just for US

I am over 25 and will need insurance, as I do not have a good CC for that. I would be looking for a medium size car, maybe intermediate or full. Anyone have any good leads? If there is a good CC that would help, which one would it be?

When renting a car in Israel, is there a chance they will drive you back (to hotel ) after returning your car (specifically in yam HaMelech) ?
Some companies have the option for an additional fee. Ask your agent.
And do you always have to pay for third party insurance? (Even with wmc)
Yes.

I am looking to rent a full size minivan such as a Grandis for Succos from Wednesday afternoon,  9/11/13 to Sunday night, 9/29/13, total of 19 days at TLV. The Mazda 5 would normally be fine for my family but as I am renting in the the airport it would probably not be large enough for our luggage.

The best prices I was able to find without doing much reseach before insurance was $1263  for a Grandis ($982 for Mazda 6)  through Avis via USAA and  $1231 for Grandis ($1026 for Mazda 6) with my Sixt Platinum. I will have the Chase World Master Card so I will only have to pay the mandatory Liability. (I know its almost as much as the full insurance)  These rates do not take into account Shabbos and Y”T days.

Where else can I look to get better rates?  I'd appreciate any advice and tips.

I'd be happy to get quotes from anyone here.
