Re: 12 hour layover in London. What to do?
Hi, my husband and I arrive in London next Monday at 8 am and have a 12 hour layover before continuing on to Israel.  Assuming we aren't totally wiped out by the time we get there, do you all have any suggestions as to whether it pays to venture out? Has anyone done whirlwind tours of this kind? If so, what do you suggest we  see/do in that brief interlude?  Are there any kosher meals available for purchase at Heathrow if we elect to stay and wait? All the best and thanks in advance for your suggestions.

With that long of a wait and arriving bright and early I would def venture out.

Re: Car Rental 02/10- 09/20 Ben Gurion avoiding hidden charges 1. Make sure your Credit Card covers CDW in Israel.
2. In Israel, if CDW is covered by CC you still need to purchase Third Party Liability insurance, which is often equal to or more than the daily rate for the car.
3. If you go through travel agents that specialize in Israeli car rentals, you might get an all inclusive package, however those often have a $500 deductible on the CDW. Ask for a package with no deductible on the CDW.
4. Get a letter from your CC that they cover CDW in Israel if you choose to rely on the CC coverage, make sure to follow their terms which usually require you to decline coverage by the car rental company, which means you can't rely on it if you get a package that has a $500 deductible, because you got CDW from the company, just had to deal with a high deductible.

I usually rent from Hertz via Aegeanair.com. I get a reasonable amount of A3 miles for the rental, get to pick up and drop off at terminal 3, not having to deal with shuttle busses. Rates are usually reasonable but I know in advance they don't include the Third Party Liability which runs about $10-$12 per day.

At least with Hertz, you can ask to get a credit for not using the car on Shabbos. That credit is usually minimal, because it's only the base rental, you still have to pay all the fees and insurance. Also you can only request that if it's not a prepaid rental.

For example, using your dates, a car in class L1 is $252 for the period with unlimited KM and no need to deal with Car Rental Shuttle busses, easily saving you 15 minutes or more on the return, to which you should add the Third Party Liability (and if you are an Israeli Citizen - VAT). Shabbos credit will probably end up being $10 or less if you get that. Prepaying for the reservation seems to save $20, so that might be a better deal.
