I am an American woman in 50's traveling alone, will be going from Jerusalem to Eilat on Sunday, May 18 for a week and return Sunday, May 25th. Some friends suggested I not rent a car because I am alone, said it may not be safe in places. I want to see the sites along the way and take pics, would love to drive down one way and return another to see more of the countryside. Would it be safe for me to do this? Or should I take the bus??
I saw one of the posts recommended having a car in Eilat because it is spread out. I will be staying by Coral Beach. If I don't have a car, is their local services convenient enough to get around??
And since I am traveling alone, spending 1 week In Jerusalem, one in Eilat and another week in Tiberias and 2 nights in Tel Aviv before my flight...any tips or suggestions or warnings??
