Car Rental Closed On Shabbat In Haifa-Need To Park Overnight

Jump to last reply

We have a two day stop in Haifa and want to rent a car. The problem is that we want to return the car late afternoon on Friday and all the companies I've called are closed. They do not allow drop offs, which seems unusual, and I can't return it when they are open.

So two questions really;

1) Does anyone know a company in Haifa that is open until about 6pm on Friday, or has a dropbox for keys after hours?
2) If not, Tamir Rentals agreed to charge me extra and leave the car somewhere for pick up on Sunday which is a good option. Where could I park the car 2 days safely for free or a reasonable fee? I would prefer to be close to Haifa Port (cruising).

Any suggestions on how to deal with car rentals and Shabbat would be appreciated. The logistics are difficult.
Thanks,
Matthew
