Arriving at Israel

Israel has four main airports: Ben Gurion International Airport, Dov Hoz Tel Aviv Airport, Eilat Airport, and Ovda Airport. Dov Hoz and Eilat Airports are used for domestic Israel flights only. Most international flights to Israel arrive at Ben Gurion Airport, which is renowned for its secure facilities and has the largest and most modern terminal in the Middle East. The terminal is complete with moving walkways, shops, restaurants, a post office, banking facilities, synagogue, rental car desks, wireless internet, and three business lounges.

When booking airfare to Israel, it is important to know that Israel takes security very seriously. Keep in mind that customs and passport control often ask many security questions and it is not uncommon for random passengers to be stopped by security personnel. Be patient and courteous and you will not have a problem.

Getting Around Israel

Israel is a small country with an efficient public transportation network. The train connects many major destinations and is timely, economical, clean, comfortable, and air-conditioned. An inexpensive, local way to travel from city to city or within cities is by Sherut. Flag one of these minivans down, pay a set fare, and tell the driver when you want to get off. If you plan to visit smaller, remote locations after your cheap flight to Israel, consider the bus system Egged.

Renting a car allows you the flexibility to move on your own time. Fortunately, most travel signs are written in Hebrew, Arabic, and English, and most roads are well paved, well lit, and clearly marked.

Main attractions in Israel

Most visitors who book their flight to Israel want to experience the historic and archeological beauty of Jerusalem, as well as the theater, music, art, and restaurants. The Old City is a bustling, walled mix of modern and ancient life, housing important holy sites of the three major religions: the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Dome of the Rock. Your trip to Israel is not complete without a visit to the Dead Sea or Tel Aviv, the country's largest city.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

Book your airfare to Israel and enjoy excellent, fresh, and delicious food, and a variety of shopping and nightlife. Be sure to try some of the Israeli street food including falafel, shwarma, sabich, hummus, and lafa.
