Top tips for hiring a car in Jerusalem

  • A hire car is the best and most comfortable way to freely explore not only Jerusalem, but also other major destinations in Israel, as tours can get quite pricey. A car is especially useful if you want to drive along the western Mediterranean coast and make scenic stops as you please. Drive to the fortress of Masada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as to the Dead Sea, which will take you less than two hours to reach from Jerusalem.
  • Most of the major car hire companies, including Avis and Sixt, can be found at Ben Gurion Airport (TLV), which is located about 50 minutes from Jerusalem. All the car hire desks can be found on the first floor of the Arrivals Hall at the airport’s main terminal. It is recommended that you get an International Driver’s Permit alongside your domestic driver’s license. Make sure to request an English-speaking GPS.
  • Driving in downtown Jerusalem can be quite challenging due to the narrow, busy streets, so if you’re not comfortable, just park your car somewhere and explore the center by foot. Only residents can drive in the Old City. Driving on the outskirts of the city is far easier, and most of Israel’s highway signs are expressed in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. If you any need help, remember that most Israelis speak good English.
  • Avoid driving during rush hour, which is 7-10 a.m. and 3:30-6:30 p.m. Fridays experience less traffic as most official establishments are closed. Route 1 is the main road heading towards the Mediterranean coast, with Tel Aviv to the west and the Dead Sea to the east, and it tends to be pretty crowded during peak season and on weekends. When heading to east Jerusalem, take Route 443 instead, which is less congested.

A convertible can be a fun way to cruise the coast when the weather allows it.

Where are the best places to park in Jerusalem?

Street parking is usually limited to two hours and is free on weekends. The system is regulated by colors: red and white-painted curbs indicate that parking is forbidden, grey-marked streets are free, and blue and white curbs require payment. When visiting the Old City, it’s best to leave the car at the Karta garage in Mamilla, close to the Jaffa Gate.
