How much is taxifare from Jersalem to Ben Gurion Airport?

Hi,

Flight departs at 5:30am. I was thinking of taking a cab to the airport but are there better options for so early in the morning?

Does Ben Gurion had a "Transit" hotel that you can book a 4-5 hour block to rest?

Thanks!

The best option from Jerusalem is the Nesher "sherut" (shared taxi). Although I don't recommend it from the airport TO Jerusalem, for the trip to the airport we use them every time. You need to book 1 or 2 days in advance (if you are leaving on a saturday or sunday then definitely 2 days in advance). Get your hotel to call them for you - they will tell you what time they are coming to pick you up, which they do from the hotel (unless you are in the old city, in which case they will pick you up from the area of Jaffa gate).

There is no "transit" hotel at Ben Gurion, since it is so close to the 2 major cities - it will take you about 35-40 minutes from Jerusalem at that time of night, and from Tel Aviv it's about 20 minutes when there's no traffic.

No hotel near the airport, and you have to be there 3 hours before depature time. Ask your hotel to book you with Nesher, the shared taxi company. The cost is 55-60 shekels.

The taxi will cost you in this hour 237 nis,

not inculdig bags and extraa people.

every bag is 2.5 nis I think, and after 2 persons I think, it will cost 5 nis more for three people and 10 nis for four.

I dont think you have any kind of those hotels there...

Hope I helped :)

Best regards,

Tzook Bar

Forgot to mention - the Nesher costs about 50 shekels per person. A private taxi at night time costs 254 shekels, plus a few extra shekels for your baggage.
