Car Hire in Israel can be offered on a slightly different basis to that you normally find in Europe. In some instances you will discover that Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is not included in the rental cost. This means you will either have to buy cover from your rental company when you reach Israel, or buy a stand alone collision damage waiver policy which will cover your liability.
The advantage of the stand alone policies is that they not only remove your liability entirely as there are no excesses involved, but also protect other areas of the car such as the tyres, wheels, underbody and glass on the vehicle which are not normally covered by CDW policies issued by car hire firms themselves.
It is a good idea to check the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office website for up to date advice on travel to Israel.
