From Israel to Ciaro

We are planning to go to Ciaro from Israel. Would you recommend flying to Ciaro and then flying to TeleViv or to Elat?

How long does it take to drive from Elat to TeleViv? Or is it better to fly?

If we drive from Elat to Cairo - what is it like crossing the border between Israel and Egypt?
Any other tips are appreciated.

Tel Aviv to Eilat is about 220miles or 350km. I've taken the bus from TA-Eilat and driven back. I believe the current Egged (bus company) schedule says 4.5 hours. Driving can probably save 1/2 hour or so. I broke the return trip into many sightseeing stops, so can't tell you how long the drive was. Also, on our return, we drove Highway 40 via Mizpe Ramon; while the bus takes the main route of Highway 25/90.

I'd do a lot of research before taking a car cross-border from Israel to Egypt. Who's car is this? If this is a rental, I think you can forget about it. If not, then investigate what kinds of documentation about the car, insurance, and so on... It's a lot more complicated than taking a car between European countries, or between US/Canada/Mexico.
