We traveled to Israel and were very satisfied. We drove by car, which we took in the rental agency. We reserved a car and paid for it at home, and upon the arrival we got a car, which was used without restriction. It was convenient that the required insurance were issued immediately without additional charge, as it was included in the cost.

I've organized travels by myself for many times. Usually I prefer Europe with its comfort and quality service. I adore to drive a car. I've found this excellent car aggregator long ago and now I always use it. I've visited many countries. And the site always helps me. It's a very useful resource. I recommend it to everybody!!!
