Driving time from Tel Aviv to Eilat?

We will going from Istanbul to Eilat, but have to change planes in Tel Aviv to get there. We will be renting a car and wonder how long it would take to drive from Tel Aviv to Eilat. We can fly from Tel Aviv to Eilat and rent a car in Eilat. We will be flying home from Tel Aviv so maybe we should rent car in Tel Aviv instead of Eilat instead of flying. Any suggestions would be helpful. We would like to visit Egypt and Jordan on day trips. We will be arriving on 10 October 99.

Hi, Peggy,
It's around 300km, or around 180 miles from Tel Aviv to Eilat. To be safe you should allow several hours (say 4-5), more for sightseeing or photography stops. A car will certainly allow for a more interesting journey and more flexibility. Traffic in Tel Aviv proper may be a little disconcerting but once you're out of the city the going will be fairly easy. You might want to get the car and leave it at Ben Gurion airport, and use taxis to get in and out of Tel Aviv proper. Good luck!
