Why carry an IDP while driving in Israel?
Your IDP is a valid form of identification in 150 countries worldwide and contains your name, photo and driver information.
It translates your identification information into 12 languages — so it speaks the language even if you don’t. Israel highly recommends an International Driving Permit.Order my International Driving Permit Now

Driving in the Winter
Driving a car through Israeli roads in winter shouldn’t be a problem if you take some precautions.
You will see snowfall most likely in certain parts of the country so it is important to put on winter tires. Also be aware that, according to the winter driving regulation in Israel, all drivers must keep the vehicle headlights on while traveling on an intercity road.
Have a great trip!
