KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Eilat

  • The populous Eilat city with a beautiful coastline has multiple sites and activities suitable for business and tourism. Having the right service from Eilat car rentals ensures you can enjoy your stay. You can drive to the nearby Timna Valley Park, sitting around 18.2 miles from the town, to appreciate some history, such as King Solomon's sandstone formation, and see some of the oldest copper mines in the world. If you enjoy sports and entertainment, car rentals in Eilat allow you to take a short drive to the Eilat Tze'elim Sports Center on Yahel Street.
  • The Eilat Ramon International Airport consists of a Rental Car Center where you can find car rentals in Eilat with services from multiple companies, such as Hertz, Alamo, Budget, Enterprise, and Avis. You can find a guide to the parking lot to select your car from the rental desks stationed in the Arrival Hall. Europcar, Avis, Sixt, and Budget have pick-up services near the Terminal, allowing you to reach them conveniently upon arrival. You can also walk to the Sixt provider by heading south from the airport.
  • This town has two major roads, including Highway 90, one of the longest Israeli roads linking the city to Israel's center, and Highway 12, which starts as an urban boulevard within Eilat. You can install a navigation program in your car rental to move within and outside the city efficiently. Despite that, be watchful of signs and signals because sometimes you may find an out-of-order traffic signal, but the road signs featured at the junction offer the rules to follow. Additionally, stay alert about speeding drivers because the locals can be impatient and are always in a rush.
  • The relatively quiet Eilat has bearable traffic conditions within the city. The major routes, such as Highway 12, can have a lot of traffic coming in from Jerusalem via Highway 40, so you want to avoid delay risks by starting your journey either before or after rush hour, usually from around 4pm. It is also essential to note that the city and the rest of Israel require all vehicles to have their headlights on interurban roads during wintertime, starting from November 1st to March 31st.
  • Book your car hire in Eilat at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Eilat are around -9% cheaper than other car types, on average

I booked a three day car rental in Israel. The estimated cost was $177 on the reservation. Although my reservation provided for unlimited miles, they tried to limit my miles. I argued with them and they changed it to the contract terms. I picked the car up at 9 am. The clerk told me to be sure and return the vehicle by 10 am or they would charge me an extra day. "Don't be one minute late." So I wasn't. I dropped the car off as provided in my contract (a location other than where I picked it up). I dropped it off at 9 am after two days. They charged me a previously undisclosed $120 for the different location drop off. This was not in my reservation and was not in the contract that I got when I picked up the vehicle. There is no email for Sixt that is available. My attempts to get them to credit that charge back to my card were unsuccessful. Returned the car a day early, still charged for three days plus the ripoff drop off charge that was no where in the agreement.

I booked an intermediate and they insisted on giving me a Compact car. Their car level scale (letters such as D, E, F) is different from the one used in Kayak (mini, compact, intermediate). Had to wait more than 90 mins on pick-up until they gave me a car with a decent size trunk.

Finding the drop off location was very confusing and time consuming. I believe this is specific to this particular location in the center of a busy intersection in Eilat.

Cons:

Car came up on kayak as $186 but it was $290 when we dropped it off because of insurance fee at pickup that the agent said we must pay even though we are always able to decline it in the US since our Visa card provides coverage. Also , there was an airport drop off fee added.

Cons:

The kayak price included no fees, and the fees were triple the rental cost. I expected some fees, but three times the rental? Also, the car had a plastic piece under the bumper that fell down and scraped the road. It was not dangerous, but it was annoying, and I had to tape it up.

I liked the car and the company!!!

Cons:

I didn't like that you don't know how much you are going to pay at the end.... Kayak shows you a very good price at the beginning, for me it was 75$ but I ended up paying 435$ at the end including the insurance which is not shown at first.... That's a huge difference in price! And even the car without an insurance is 280$ so where does the bate price of 75$ come from? It would be fair to show this at the beginning!

Pros:

The Nissan Micra is a comfortable vehicle; we were able to seat 4 adults easily, and get all our luggage in.

Cons:

The bottom line came as a real shock. We had been quoted a price of $34 for a 3-day rental. When i went to pick up the car, I was told I had to take their insurance, otherwise I couldn't rent. I was also charged $3/ day for an additional driver. Before I was done, the rental cost me $93.
