9.2 ExcellentApr 9 2018
Quick, efficient, accurate.Pros: Everything
6.4 GoodApr 9 2018
Price shiftedCons: Car came up on kayak as $186 but it was $290 when we dropped it off because of insurance fee at pickup that the agent said we must pay even though we are always able to decline it in the US since our Visa card provides coverage. Also , there was an airport drop off fee added.
5.6 OkayNov 19 2017
Cons: The kayak price included no fees, and the fees were triple the rental cost. I expected some fees, but three times the rental? Also, the car had a plastic piece under the bumper that fell down and scraped the road. It was not dangerous, but it was annoying, and I had to tape it up.
4.8 OkayNov 14 2017
Pros: pickup and dropoff was OKCons: -nobody was helpful -i orderd Hyundai Accent and i became Kia Picanto -in the price wasnt assurance (so end price was 5x more)

2.0 MediocreMar 12 2020
Cons: Hidden Compulsory insurance cost. Did not take the car because off that. Your site said overall price and that was not true. Very disappointing
10.0 ExcellentFeb 24 2020
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff at pick-up, supereasy, fluent drop-off. Xtra Big thumbup for the pickup staff in the officeCons: Got a bigger than booked, so im satisfied
10.0 ExcellentFeb 19 2020
Pros: The Staff was very helpful and the experience good
2.0 MediocreFeb 16 2020
Pros: I was agreed via your app on some price. But i was extremely surprised when the real price, was a) different B) not final c) 3 times higher than i ordered via Kayak D) price wasn’t complete! So i didn’t rent the car at these totaly not pro customer condition!Cons: The price should be always final/total price! Be everybody careful!
4.0 OkayFeb 13 2020
Cons: Staff at Sixt in Eilat was unhelpful and not friendly at all. Returned the car to the same garage where I picked it up but was asked to bring it to the front door. Insurance policy was completely unclear. I read the T&C's, which were ambiguous. Contacted Priciline's support (via online chat full of bugs) for clarity but they didn't have any more details either.
7.2 GoodJan 7 2020
Pros: Drop off in Ben Gurion airport was excellent. Very pleasant staff and shuttle bus to the terminal.Cons: The final sum for car rental was 50 per cent higher than stated on the web!!! And staff at Eilat Ramon airport was really awful.
2.4 MediocreJan 4 2020
Cons: They made Us pay extra Basic insurance
4.8 OkayDec 17 2019
Pros: Check-in was OK. But the lady at the front desk didn't inform me that there is a km limit on the car (she wasn't even aware of it ;| ).Cons: My car wasn't checked properly before giving it to me and my front registration plate just fell off during my ride around the country. That's outrageous. I was lucky that someone told me I had no plate - we had to do a U-turn and look for it on the road for some kilometers. Luckily I found it and luckily I found someone with tools to fix it for me. When I returned the car, the staff was rude and didn't acknowledge that it was their duty to check if the car is ready for the road.
2.0 MediocreDec 16 2019
Pros: -Cons: The final internet (definitly booked) price for the car was not the final price on the airport office (+80% more).
5.6 OkayNov 20 2019
Cons: As the company charged me twice more than should. I am highly unsatisfied with this experience. Would be glad if someone will contact me and try to help getting my money back, as Sixt is willing to accept only half of the claim.

2.4 MediocreFeb 4 2019
Pros: Nothing. Staff awefull Apparently we couldnt rent there because that was my gf who has the credit card and I was the drive. Really stupid! We went to all other agency and they where all ok to rent us a car like thatCons: Everything!!
6.0 GoodApr 7 2017
Pros: CENTRAL PICK UP AND DROP OFF.Cons: Cost, what seemed a good deal on line more than trebled with all the add on's,mainly fully comp insurance.not made clear on booking form.Car beat up lots of dents and scratches,each of which had no doubt cost the renters.Despite this the car did not let us down and we had no trouble.Had to wait for two hours to pick up car,opening and closing times of office maybe a problem to some renters.
6.0 GoodMar 15 2017
Cons: The price was much more then booked!
6.0 GoodMar 6 2017
Please show prices more clearlyPros: I liked the car and the company!!!Cons: I didn't like that you don't know how much you are going to pay at the end.... Kayak shows you a very good price at the beginning, for me it was 75$ but I ended up paying 435$ at the end including the insurance which is not shown at first.... That's a huge difference in price! And even the car without an insurance is 280$ so where does the bate price of 75$ come from? It would be fair to show this at the beginning!
6.0 GoodMar 2 2017
Make sure to read the fine print!Pros: The Nissan Micra is a comfortable vehicle; we were able to seat 4 adults easily, and get all our luggage in.Cons: The bottom line came as a real shock. We had been quoted a price of $34 for a 3-day rental. When i went to pick up the car, I was told I had to take their insurance, otherwise I couldn't rent. I was also charged $3/ day for an additional driver. Before I was done, the rental cost me $93.
4.0 OkayFeb 17 2017
Pros: Car was OKCons: I was confused, because in propossal was not include in Israel obligatory insurance. After this price was account 2 times more expensive.
5.6 OkayNov 19 2016

Top tips for renting a car in Eilat

  • The populous Eilat city with a beautiful coastline has multiple sites and activities suitable for business and tourism. Having the right service from Eilat car rentals ensures you can enjoy your stay. You can drive to the nearby Timna Valley Park, sitting around 18.2 miles from the town, to appreciate some history, such as King Solomon's sandstone formation, and see some of the oldest copper mines in the world. If you enjoy sports and entertainment, car rentals in Eilat allow you to take a short drive to the Eilat Tze'elim Sports Center on Yahel Street.
  • The Eilat Ramon International Airport consists of a Rental Car Center where you can find car rentals in Eilat with services from multiple companies, such as Hertz, Alamo, Budget, Enterprise, and Avis. You can find a guide to the parking lot to select your car from the rental desks stationed in the Arrival Hall. Europcar, Avis, Sixt, and Budget have pick-up services near the Terminal, allowing you to reach them conveniently upon arrival. You can also walk to the Sixt provider by heading south from the airport.
  • This town has two major roads, including Highway 90, one of the longest Israeli roads linking the city to Israel's center, and Highway 12, which starts as an urban boulevard within Eilat. You can install a navigation program in your car rental to move within and outside the city efficiently. Despite that, be watchful of signs and signals because sometimes you may find an out-of-order traffic signal, but the road signs featured at the junction offer the rules to follow. Additionally, stay alert about speeding drivers because the locals can be impatient and are always in a rush.
  • The relatively quiet Eilat has bearable traffic conditions within the city. The major routes, such as Highway 12, can have a lot of traffic coming in from Jerusalem via Highway 40, so you want to avoid delay risks by starting your journey either before or after rush hour, usually from around 4pm. It is also essential to note that the city and the rest of Israel require all vehicles to have their headlights on interurban roads during wintertime, starting from November 1st to March 31st.
