Jerusalem Glass Factory
« Reply #9316 on: August 15, 2017, 08:44:13 AM »
Many years ago I recall going to hand blown glass factory in the Mea Shearim area. Does anyone know if this place still exists and what it's name was?
Thanks

Whatever app you try, you're going to get an error.
It's designed for Israelis only.
Renters will just get tickets. That's their plan I guess.
This new? I used to use Pango on rental cars all the time

**UPDATE FROM PANGO The Pango app is now more secure and no longer allows you to use an ID that is not connected to your credit card. At the moment there is no solution for tourists. **

Yes, because you now need an Israeli phone number.... (I use Verizon day pass with my US number... so I used my wifea rented phone.)

And get this, I tried a mastercard, and it won't work. I was only able to do it with an Amex... (strange no ?)

Posts in the  Isrrael ATM thread say it is no longer possible to withdraw dollars with a non israeli card.
