Very early transport to airport

by Farmyard

Our flight leaves at 7 am and I hear one has to e there 3 hours prior (is this true?) This would mean getting there at 4 am and I suppose leaving Jerusalem at 3 am! Will a taxi take us at this hour and what would it cost? Would it be better to overnight in Tel Aviv and get a taxi from there?

The country is small, will take 30-45 minutes that time at night, just order a taxi in advance and yes, be 3 hours prior at the airport.
From Tel-Aviv it will be shorter trip, maybe 15 minutes.

Your times (from Jerusalem, and arival time at the airport) are correct. Please note that you have the option of ordering a Nesher 'sherut' (service taxi) the day before and they will pick you up (together with others) from wherever you want in Jerusalem and bring you there in time. They have been in the business for decades now and are extremely dependable. Cost: NIS 50 per person. Time of ride: 45 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on whether you are the first or last one to be picked up.

Spending the night before in Tel Aviv as detailed above is also an option. Which is better? No one can decide for you as this purely a personal decision.

If the only reason for transferring to Tel Aviv for one night would be transport to the airport I doubt it makes much sense. You will have the hassle and inconvenience of checking out of your hotel, transferring to another, checking in and then checking out again the next morning.

At that time of the morning there is not that much difference in the travel time from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. It will take longer than the 15 minutes someone posted here, more along the lines of 20 + from Tel Aviv and only about 30 + from Jerusalem. Nesher Taxi is your best bet and cost effective way of getting to the airport. You can of course, arrange for a private taxi but that will be much more costly (unless you are a larger group - say 5 or more).

And lastly - yes, you do need to get to the airport 3 hours before your flight. Security clearance is a potentially lengthy procedure. There are many, many flights that leave between 6a.m. and 8 a.m. causing potentially long lines at security.

THe airport is slightly closer to Tel Aviv than to Jerusalem. I'd say by taxi it is 25-35 minutes to Tel Aviv ( depends upon where in Tel Aviv) and 35-45 minutes to Jerusalem. ( again, depends upon where) The advantage of an early flight is there will be no traffic. ( although you will be surprised how wide-awake and busy the airport is at that hour. ) Very few people transfer to Tel Aviv for their last night. It is time-consuming and not necessary. If you look at itineraries of tour groups, many, many groups spend their last night in Jerusalem.

Order a car service or a cab from Jerusalem. in 2008, my brother's flight arrived at 3 am. I took me just under 30 mins to get to the airport. The waiting can be long or it can be so short. One time 2 1/2 hours next time a few minutes.

Travel Tips for Jerusalem

Need Some Sheqels?

by freddie18

Israel Discount Bank is one of Israel's leading financial groups.

The New Israeli Shekel / Sheqel is Israel’s currency. There are coins of 5, 10, 50 agorot (like cents), and 1, 5, 10, 20,50,100 & 200 shekels notes. The 200 Shekels notes are not easily traded, and one should try to avoid receiving them when exchanging money. Money can be exchanged at any of the street exchange bureaux, ATMs or any of Israel’s major banks.

When exchanging money at a bank, you will be charged a fixed exchange fee, and if you choose to use an exchange place on the street, you will not be charged for the transaction, but will receive a lower rate than the banks supply.

If you do choose to use the bank, try not to exchange money on Sundays. The reason is that while the Israeli banks are open on Sundays, there is no world currency trade on Sunday, and the banks charge a commission that is 10 times higher than on any other day of the week.

There are many ATMs around Israel that are all connected to European and American banking systems. When using an ATM, you will be charged by your credit card provider, as well as an ATM fee. Your credit card provider will also determine what the exchange rate is, and it will usually be the highest rate possible for that date.

Generally speaking, exchange places are always cheaper than the banks and ATMs, but if you choose to exchange money at a change spot, make sure to look at the rates of a few places before making your choice.

Some Israeli businesses will accept Travelers’ cheques, although most of them won’t. If you insist on using travelers’ cheques, This leaves you with the alternative of cashing them at any of the Israeli post offices, which are the only commission – free way to cash travelers cheques in Israel. Cash can also be sent to post office branches using Western Union services.

Jerusalem, the old city - David's Tower

by Martin_S.

In the background you can see David's Tower in the old city of Jerusalem. The sign points the way to Jaffa Gate, one of the traditional 7 gates leading the way into the city. It is one of the two main gates, the Damascus gate being the other.

by lois_lane

Sun streaming down in the streets, dappled by the roofs of the shops on either sides. Donkeys and men pulling carts, loaded to near tipping, hurrying up and down the allies and back lanes. Smells hitting our nostrils with ferocity in the heat. I really wish that you could bring back the smells of a place with you.

The plant on the western wall

by ophiro

There is a plant between the rocks of the western wall.
The name of the plant is Capparis spinosa (in hebrew it is "Tsa'laf").

There is a legend about the plant :

When the romans attacked Jerusalem there was a boy called Tsalaf (the hebrew meaning of sniper) that stood on the western wall and fired arrows on the romans so they couldnt pass.
The roman's millitary leader saw that and ordered to enter from the north entry and they broke into the temple mount and destroyed the temple.

The roman's millitary leader came behind the boy to kill him but he was amazed that it was just a small boy.

Before he killed him the boy started to get down on the wall and just before the romans killed him with their arrows he became a plant - a caper.

The roman's millitary leader ordered his soldiers to get down the wall and bring him the plant but each one of them fell after the thorns of the plant injured them.

And now only the western wall was left and the plant is still watching the people praying.
