I am trying to figure out the most efficient (time and cost-wise) to do this. I will be in Jerusalem and travelling to the Galillee area by rental car so it makes sense to use the northern crossing to enter Jordan. On my return, I want to get to Tel Aviv.
To cross into Jordan at the northern border, I reckon I have two choices - a) drop the car off in Tiberias and take a taxi to the border, or b) drive to the border and park the car there.
With option (a), I can return via Allenby and take a sherut to Tel Aviv (do they go directly to Tel Aviv from the border?) or take the Trust International Transport bus from Amman to Tel Aviv (I've read about this but it's hard to get up-to-date info on whether this line is still operating).
With option (b), I will have to return by the northern border, then drive to Tel Aviv.
I have no problems with transportation on the Jordan side as I plan to hire a car and driver.
Am I correct to assume that option (b) will be significantly faster and not materially more expensive? I may have to pay $100+ rental for the car to sit in the parking lot for 4-5 days (is it even possible to do this and how much will parking cost?), it would not be significantly more than the taxi fare from Tiberias plus sherut fares for 2 persons to Tel Aviv.
Am I missing anything?
