Location information for Jerusalem

Introduction

Jerusalem isn't only the capital of Israel, but also of three religions: Christianity, Islam and Judaism. For this reason alone it's a fascinating city, where buildings of two thousand years old merge seamlessly with modern offices and apartments. Unfortunately it's a divided city: the modern and mainly by Jews inhabited West Jerusalem and the old and mainly by Arabs inhabited East Jerusalem, which was conquered by Israel from Jordan in 1967 and annexed in 1980.

Population

Jerusalem has over 750,000 inhabitants. The largest part (two thirds) of the population consists of Jews and half of them is extreme Orthodox. More and more secular Jews leave the city and their place is taken by extreme Orthodox Jews. About one third of Jerusalem's inhabitants is Islamic and a minority of about 2% adheres to Christianity.

Location

Jerusalem is centrally located in Israel, on the eastern border of the West Bank which is largely governed by the Palestinian Authority, but there are also hundreds of Israeli settlements.

Economy

Israel's capital is of course the seat of the national government. Many people work for the government or related services. Education and healthcare also provide much employment. In recent years, the number of high-tech companies has grown significantly. Tourism to this historical city is also an important source of income.

Airports

Israel's national airport, Ben Gurion International Airport, is situated over 50 kilometers northwest of Jerusalem. The airport is easily reachable by rental car; it lies directly along the highway to Tel Aviv.

Public Transport

Like the city, public bus transport is divided. Some buses only run in West Jerusalem (and the Jewish quarters of East Jerusalem); there's a separate bus network for the Arab quarters in East Jerusalem. In 2011, a light-rail line became operational which connects the northeastern districts with those in the southwest, via the city center.

Traffic and Parking

Jerusalem's Old City can only be explored by foot, because many streets and alleys aren't accessible for cars. It's not easy to find a free parking place, especially during the Sabbath (Saturdays). There's an underground parking garage underneath the Mamilla shopping mall. There's also a large P+R area near Mount Herzl where you can park your rental car to continue to the center by streetcar (light rail). Parking is prohibited at red-white and red-yellow chequered curbs.

Hotels

Jerusalem has an enormous choice of accommodations. In the Old City you'll mainly find small hotels and cheap guesthouses. More luxurious hotels are concentrated in West Jerusalem, although there are also basic guesthouses and bed & breakfasts.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
