What’s the cheapest month to fly to Israel?

Spring and autumn are generally cheaper times to visit Israel as temperatures are cooler, meaning fewer visitors flock to the beaches. Israel celebrates lots of religious holidays and prices are often higher during these periods, so make sure to check whether your trip dates coincide with any of them. Flights will cost more during holy celebrations, even at quieter times of the year. Use our low fare finder to discover the cheapest time to visit Israel.

When’s the best time to visit Israel?

The best time to visit Israel depends on what you want to get out of your trip. Spring and autumn are perfect for exploring without crowds, while the best time to enjoy the nightlife scene is in the summer, when the clubs and bars stay open later. To experience one of Israel’s many religious holidays, check an Israeli calendar before you book. They’re celebrated at different times throughout the year.

Is Israel cheap to visit?

With a little pre-planning, it’s possible to visit Israel on a budget. If you’re travelling on a shoestring, there are plenty of nice hostels for affordable breaks. Getting around is simple too, as public transport is affordable and reliable, and you can explore Israel’s cities and everything in between by bus and train. Ready for lunch? Skip the restaurants and save some shekels – the local currency – by sampling street food instead. It’s a huge part of Israeli culture. Don’t miss some authentic falafel, the country’s national dish.

Is it easy to get around Israel?

It takes about six hours to drive from Israel’s northern border to its south, so it’s easy to explore the country by car. If you’d prefer public transport, hop on a bus or train between the big cities, including Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa. These may not run during Shabbat, Israel’s weekly holy day.

Why visit Israel?

Israel’s diverse landscape and mix of cultures make it a must-visit destination. You can see lush greenery in the north and the Negev Desert in the south in the same day, finishing your adventure at the Dead Sea, the lowest geographical point on the planet. Don't miss the centuries of history, lively cities, beautiful beaches and excellent food scene.
