ISO car rental January 10 through March 9 2023. Two seniors, so we do not require large passenger capacity. Thanks in advance for any ideas/assistance.
Pickup and drop-off Ben Gurion,near Kfar Daniel  (not too far from Ben Gurion,) or in Rosh HaAyin.
Question: Are we required to buy additional insurance coverage offered by the car company if we have insurance through our credit card?

HI,
I need some help here. I am flying iy'h to Israel mid December for 2 weeks. Since my bout with corona, I cant drive as usual and need to drive with hand controls. I am not a small person and wont be comfortable in a small car. Do you know of a reliable agent in Israel that deals in car rentals that can help me?  I find that they are cheaper than dealing with the car rental company directly. I am over 65

Please reply here on the forum.

Thanks so much!

I'm traveling to Israel soon and considering renting a car, but I'm a little hesitant due to Dan's posts throughout the years containing horror stories about car rentals there. Have they improved their game in the past few years, or do the scams continue? I see that Dan used to recommend Rechev rentals, but it appears that they're no longer operating. Dan also said that Hertz was a good alternative-- is that still applicable? Do the rental companies still require a letter from the CC companies about insurance?

Since I don't see anyone else saying so:
For some few of you, car-sharing services may suffice for your needs and come out cheaper.

Scams continue but you shouldn't let that stop you, just protect yourself with pictures before leaving lot.
Try noach as mentioned above.
Some do require a letter, it's best to have it.

ended up using mycar. Got a Peugeot 5008 on Yechezkel Hanavi. 350₪ /day + 1.8₪ /km.
You could also rent hourly 29.90₪ + 2.3₪ /km
Smaller cars are 159₪
 /Day + .9₪ /km
Gas is included. You don't need a card. Just pull into an approved station and the pump starts automatically.

From what I understand, Rechev still operates. They're now know as tripolutions. Was very helpful in the past.

They're all still awful.
Noach is very helpful is navigating the mess, but it's still a mess.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I ended up booking with Rechev. I'll see how it goes and report back.
