Cons: They don't tell you that the car cannot be driven in the Palestinian territories!!
That means that Bethlehem in upper Gallilee is off-limits.
Dishonesty from the top
Cons: Price was supposed to be $99 and was actually $388. Car was old, dirty, damaged
Pros: Easy drop off
Cons: No AC in the car.
Pros: Car at terminal. Easy to find.
Cons: The line at the counter was ridiculous. It took forever for the counter person (who was very polite) to handle each customer.
Cons: I was forced to get an insurance, however it wasn't in terms of service (I did read it!) And even when calling my bank (Chase) I was told that they will do the insurance and I need to decline the AWIS insurance. However I was still forced to get it
Pros: The car was in good conditions.
Cons: Pick-up and drop-off was a horrible experience. The place is a mess, the service is horrible.
Pros: Price was ok. Car mostly in ok working order
Cons: Car could have been cleaner. Needs new windshield wipers; we couldn’t get a clear windshield because the wipers were old and dirty
Pros: staff friendly, good value, great location in Tel Aviv
Pros: This was my first time using Kayak and I am more than pleased that it worked out as promised!! I was very skeptical given the more than reasonable rate and much to my surprise it was as promised!
Cons: When we arrived at car rental I had to wait for a car that was much larger in size than I wanted. They weren't clear about any extra per mile fee or refill costs so I couldn't find put what to expect. They also told.me the wrong return time in Jerusalem so I ended up returning the car 20 minutes early without refilling the tank. There were also no signs in Jerusalem at the street level directing me where to find the lot for returning the car. I was luck that I didn't get a ticket for parking on the side of the street to run inside to find out where the lot entry was located.
Pros: Car worked
Cons: Very long wait at rental counter - almost 90 minutes, and we had a reservation. They advertise very low rates, but by the time you add on 3rd party liability insurance and a 2d driver, etc, the cost is the same as other companies who already include these charges in their daily rates. Compare what other rental companies are offering before you book with Budget. Caveat emptor!
Pros: Be very prepared with rates, insurance, and car type. Print everything. If there is no charge book other car rental also as a back up. Because if you answer NO to the question "Do you have reservations" Be ready to be a sacrificial lamb. Especially at the Ben Gurion Airport in Israel.
Cons: If you are able to finalize everything in the US with no changes during the pick up time. Just do it.
