Car Rental Procedure at the Airport

 

We are asking Israelites who are able to rent cars if they can rent a large vehicle, only if they can. This request is on the behalf of other Hebrews who may not be able to rent a car. Also, we will be traveling to other sites and we wouldn’t want to exclude others from having the best experiences. We are our brothers’ keepers.

 

Below is Eldan link one of the cheapest Car rental agencies in Israel. You can rent a car in Tel Aviv or Beersheba. It is located on the second floor in the airport.
