Rental Car for Trip to Dead Sea and Masadda

We are 3 guys planning a trip to Dead Sea and Masada for the coming Friday. Will it be better to take a rental car and visit both places in 1 day. Private tours are turning out to be more expensive. We do have complimentary tour to Jerusalem on Saturday from the hotel.

And it would b great if someone can suggest the Itinerary we should follow for Friday trip.

Sure, that sounds like a fine idea. It might take 1.5-2 hours to get to Masada. And I would do that earlier in the day to avoid the heat. You will drive past several of the Dead Sea beaches on the way there and can stop there on the way back.

Except for at the airport rental agencies close mid day Friday

and are closed Saturday. If you rent a car Friday AM, it can't easily be returned until Sunday

Check out the Abraham Tour transport only option and Ben Harim and Egged daily tours. If you are doing this on a Friday you will have to rent the car until Sunday morning because of the Sabbath.

Even keeping the car over the Sabbat will be, as you indicated less than a tour for 3. Just make sure you have where to park.
