    Hello, I am going to visit Jerusalem in a couple of months and I want to hear any comments regarding renting a car there. Also, are there any specific things to consider in Israel or in that city for a car driver?

    hi there,

    The speed limit in Israel is 100kph (62mph) on motorways, 80kph (50mph) on intercity roads and 50kph (31mph) within towns.

    To hire a car, you have to be over 24 years and in possession of a full national driving license with at least two years' driving experience, insurance and an international credit card.

    Also, car hire companies will not allow hire cars to be driven into the Palestinian territory at the moment.

    Another thing to note is that It is very difficult to find parking in Jerusalem, and if you overstay your limit at the parking meter the fine is huge.
