taxi from airport

by rehovotvisit

we arrive in tel aviv airport at 02:30 hours and then need to get to Rehovot. The hotel will pick up for 200 shekels - is this reasonable - what are the alternatives please.

Re: taxi from airport

Not it's not. I just took a taxi from the airport to Givatayim (a suburb of Tel-Aviv) which is much further away from the airport than Rechovot for a little less than 100 shekels. Just take a taxi yourself and ask the driver to use the meter. Be careful not to take any of the unlicensed taxis. When you go out of the terminal you will see a line with a taxi dispatcher, this is the licensed place. The licensed drivers must use the meter if you ask to do so. Also, they will probably try to offer you a fixed price, without using the meter. In my experience the meter is always a little cheaper.

Hi!
Licensed taxis from the airport to all parts of Israel belong to the Hadar taxi company. The fares are controlled by the Ministry of Transportation:

http://www.hadar-ltd.co.il/orders/texi-klali.htm

According to this list, a taxi from the airport to Rehovot after midnight should cost NIS 131. There is an extra charge of NIS 3.40 for each piece of luggage, and an extra charge if there are 3 passengers or more.

Have a good trip,
Ilan

I'll second the responses you already received. Just make sure you go to the official dispatcher and taxi stand. You can be assured that you will be charged the correct, official price and will be in a properly licensed taxi.

Travel Tips for Tel Aviv-Yafo

Dizengoff Square

by RhineRoll

Dizengoff Square certainly is one of Tel Aviv's most distinctive squares. All the guides will tell you that it is pedestrianized -- I have found this to be a bit misleading. Truth is, there are streets from all directions and especially Dizengoff Street bisects the square. With the red-white painted curbs it looks more like the Monaco F1 racecourse than a pedestrianized spot!!!!

The pedestrian element consists of several ramps meeting on the top of Dizengoff Street creating a pretty large and wide overpass. The ramps are quite steep, it is impossible for wheelchair users to stroll towards the fountain that marks the central section of the overpass. Therefore, as a wheelchair user, don't be tricked into thinking this might be a very accessible spot. It's not, it's an obstacle!

Having said that, if you need a hand to give you a push up the ramps, I don't think you'll ever have to wait very long for somebody to offer help. Israelis are very friendly and helpful and are likely to go out of their way to help you up the ramps.

Wheather

by traveloturc

Israel enjoys long, warm, dry summers (April-October) and generally mild winters (November-March), with somewhat drier, cooler weather in hilly regions, such as Jerusalem and Safed. Rainfall is relatively heavy in the north and center of the country with much less in the northern Negev and almost negligible amounts in the southern areas. Regional conditions vary considerably, with humid summers and mild winters on the coast; dry summers and moderately cold winters in the hill regions; hot dry summers and pleasant winters in the Jordan Valley and year-round semi-desert conditions in the Negev.

St. Peter's Church

by Nathalie_B

This Roman Catholic church was built over the ruins of Crusader Citadel and it has a very unique interior design. Its monastery was visited by Napoleon in 1799. Last renovated in 1903 it is still one of the most beauutiful churches in Tel Aviv-Jaffa.
Inside you'll find vaulted ceilings,stained glass windows and marble walls. Amazing!
You can visit St. Peter's Church between 8am -noon and 3pm-5pm everyday

Dizengoff street fountain

by Nathalie_B

This fountain was designed by our famous artist Yaakov Agam to symbolise friendship of the cities of Tel Aviv and Frankfurt. It has rainbow colors, and besides the water you can also see fire that comes out of the middle of the construction every hour.

Tipping

by angelis

Some of the waitressing work I did in Tel Aviv ( especially the area of little cafes and restaurants towards the big hotels on the beach front) had little or no wages. You were expected to make your money on tips.
Tipping has been a hot topic in the forum recently and people are very divided over whether to tip or not.
The choice is yours of course, but please think when you are served your food and if the server is friendly, polite and helpful consider a tip. After all we were only the victims of greedy employers and over generous tippers. If you are anti-tipping perhaps you can "do your bit" by being aware of this problem and not patronising those establishments that practise it?
Just a thought :-)
