Only Isrotel points (or pay-with-points schemes).

Small family of four, visiting for a week and looking for suggestions for a driver. Driver should be able to speak/understand English and help with itinerary.
First time in Israel and need hand holding for trip.
Any recommendations?
Thank​ you

How do you book a room in the LiTov hotel?
On their website you cannot book and the websites that are linked to it do not book as well.
