What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Eilat?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Eilat. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Eilat vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Israel?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Israel. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Eilat. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Thrifty requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Eilat?
Eilat certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at another Thrifty. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
