Car hire deliema keep the car or drop off Eilat?

Going to hire a car in Jerusalem essentially to drive via a nights stop in Arad to Eilat,we will then after a 3 days need a car to drive direct to Tel Aviv.

So shall I hire the car drop it in Eilat ,then hire another car after 3 nights in Eilat to drive direct to Tel Aviv or .................

Shall I just keep the car for 4 days ? It is only about 30 dollars more ,is there any interesting drives from Eilat where the car would be useful?

Appreciate the advice,cheers.

If you return the car in Eilat after one day there is a hefty drop-off charge at most if not all agencies. If you keep it for 3 days there is no such charge. Yes, there are things to do with the car:

1. Park Timna

2. Red Canyon

3. Hai Bar

4. Nahal Schoret (Black canyon)

To name a few.

Keep the car. You will find it useful in Eilat and like Chana pointed out, there are plenty of places around Eilat to see where you would need a car. Parking is not as problematic in Eilat as in other cities and the driving is easy.

You can not take a car to the Red Canyon, unless it's the shopping center, or Black canyon. Depending on which hotel you are staying at you might need to pay for hourly parking.
