There is no better way to see everything Jerusalem has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your National rental car. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. When you have the keys to your own vehicle, you can go wherever you want to go, when you want. Make your next getaway to Israel even better with a National rental car.
With all there is to do and see in and around the Jerusalem area, you'll be wanting to take in more than the area surrounding your hotel during your visit. Whether you have to try the chophouse that has received great reviews across town or see some of the best local favorites, you'll want your own car to see as much as you can while on your vacation. Whatever you have planned in Jerusalem, if you want to get the most out of your time in the city, having access to your automobile is a must.
Originally founded by two dozen independent car rental agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the U.S. to over 2,000 locations worldwide. National offers everything compact to SUVs, allowing you to choose the best automobile for your getaway.
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, booking well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Most suppliers in Jerusalem set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through National's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Jerusalem. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for everyone's belongings and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Jerusalem trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In Israel you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
National requires a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Jerusalem. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your automobile with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to National.
Jerusalem definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at another National. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Jerusalem, having the keys to your own vehicle lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to check out more of Israel, you can leave when you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or having to be committed to a bus schedule.
Before your next vacation, book your National Jerusalem rent-a-car and visit all the must-see sights at your own pace. Book through CarRentals.com and cruise the road in Jerusalem, Israel.
