Car Rentals in Israel

Jump to last reply

I have never rented a car in Israel. When I rent in the US or Europe, we decline insurance from the rental company because our insurance on our car at home covers us. In booking a car for two days with Hertz in Israel, the reservation confirmation states the following:

"If Collision Damage Waiver(CDW) and Theft Protection(TP) are declined or not included in your rate, you must present a document verifying that your credit card company provides full coverage for damage in Israel for the duration of rental.
If this document is supplied, it is mandatory to purchase Third Party Property Damage at the counter for an additional fee ranging from USD 9.00 to USD 17.00 per day (excluding tax)."

When picking up rental cars in the US, we sometimes encounter heavy, unending sales pitches from the rental employees to add on more insurance and other options that we don't want or need. I would appreciate any information that would explain what we have to comply with in Israel and what we can decline.

Nothing is mentioned about fuel. Are gas tanks automatically full on pickup as in the US?

Thanks for any advice on this.
