Car Rental with insurance for West Bank

Are there car rental companies in Jerusalem which will allow the car to be driven in the West Bank and if so can you suggest one?

I can understand why the pick-up and drop-off rate is higher. The Israeli rental companies have offices and lots at the airport. They do a huge amount of business there. A company like Green Peace had to get a driver to the airport to pick-up your vehicle and get a driver back from the airport after bringing you your vehicle. So while the $80 might be okay, the fact you didn't understand that the $80 is one way only--that is not okay. BUT--what does their website say?

YIKES--I take back the above. THE website says airport surcharge $30. SO your total should have been $60. BTW looking at their prices, they are insanely expensive. No one should be renting from this company unless they are going where regular Israeli rentals can not go AND then, only for the days you need this extra service.

Yes, I am trying to dispute the charge with Visa. Fingers crossed!

Visa agreed with me and reimbursed me the 80$ airport surcharge. It was obvious to them that Green Peace tried to scam me!

So if you want to avoid such disputes, avoid Green Peace and look for another car rental company!

First of all I am very happy to hear that your story had a good ending and that VISA backed you up.

Thanks for coming back to let us know and as you said - forewarned is forearmed - knowledge is a powerful thing.

Thank you for coming back. You may want to consider posting this story on the West Bank Forum since Green Peace is more likely to be recommended there.

Shlomo Sixt--like EVERY other Israeli company does NOT have insurance for Palestinian Areas. AND like every other company their vehicles can be driven in Israeli areas.
