Taxi fare from Tel Aviv to Caesarea

We are thinking of taking a taxi from Tel Aviv to Ceasarea to visit some friends during our upcoming trip. They suggested taking a taxi to their house, and then the train back. We will be going on a Saturday evening. They said the return train leaves Ceasarea at 9 PM, but they had no information regarding fares. Does anyone have any information on how much the trip (taxi and train) could cost? There will be at least one adult and 2 12 year olds traveling. (I looked at the taxi thread that was posted, but Caesarea isn't one of the cities listed on the chart.) Thanks again to everyone who has helped us put our trip together--we are leaving on Saturday!

There are actually 7 trains leaving Ceasaria for Tel Aviv on Saturday nights. I imagine that with 12-year olds, you will be interested only in the first 3, which are at 20:56, 21:45 and 21:57. You should plan to get there about 10 minutes early to get tickets.

Ceasaria to Tel aviv costs 22 shekels per person above the age of 10. Depending on where you are going, the Hadera train station may be more convenient. It's the next stop on the line, but your hosts should know.

I also couldn't find prices for taxis from Tel Aviv to Ceasaria, and seeing as it's saturday you really have no other choice. To Hadera it's 226 shekels (fixed price) on a Saturday. Ceasarea is a bit further north, so estimate around 300 shekels. You should agree on the price before you get into the taxi. If your hotel can book you the taxi, most taxi ranks will tell you the price over the phone if you ask.

debi--thanks so much for the taxi information--I'm now thinking that maybe our friends should come and meet us in Tel Aviv for dinner!

That may not work out much cheaper. If you invite them to a restaurant, they may assume that you will be paying ...

I can attest that this expectation is the norm in Israel, unless you clarify. I stumbled on that a couple of times. It is just a cultural difference from the US, where the issue of who is expected to pay is usually negotiated, often with great gusto when the bill arrives.

Too true, Douglas.

Also, if you invite them, they will have to drive down from Ceasarea (about an hour each way), pay for petrol (which could easily come to about 100-150 shekels for a trip like that), and pay for parking, which in Tel Aviv is around 15 shekels an hour.
