bus from Eilat to Beersheva

The Egged website lists a number of departures from Eilat to Beersheva, but they all seem to make a lot of stops. Is there an express bus ever? Does a Rav Kav card help with the fare and can it be used throughout Israel? Thanks.

No, there is no express bus on that route. The 394 is the fastest route.

The only way the Rav-Kav will help you on that journey is if you put a sum of money (30, 50, 100, 150 or 200 shekels) on it, to use as you like, which will give you a small discount. It's not designed to make one-off intercity journeys cheaper. And yes, the same card can be used throughout the country; it doesn't matter where you get it.

Thank you. Another question: We will be traveling with large duffle-bag type suitcases. Do any of the bus or train stations in Israel have lockers or checkrooms where we could leave a bag during the day if we want to do some sightseeing and then get back on the bus/train? Thanks.

Some, not all, of the bus stations and train stations do have lockers of varying sizes. They don't have many and the number of large lockers is small so be prepared for that - you may or may not find an available locker in the size you need.

If you buy a return ticket, 81.20 Shekels, it works out cheaper than two one ways

But in order to buy a round trip ticket you need to get a personalized Rav Kav - and only you can decide if the time involved is worth your while (there is no cost to get the card)

Oh thank you! I don't know what it is the Rav Kav. Is it some kind of bus card?

I just asked for a return ticket and they gave it to me, I didn't buy a Rav-Kav
