  • How to Get to Israel: Getting to Israel is fairly simple, you can even fly with Easy Jet from the UK and if you book in advance you will get a great deal on prices. Most flights fly into Tel Aviv or Jerusalem and from here you can venture out and see more of the country. From the USA to Israel take around 14 hours, some cheaper routes have stop offs.
  • Accommodation: Israel is a very developed country with great infrastructure for travelers, you will find hotels and hostels throughout the country but prices are not cheap. If you are looking to experience the country on a budget then it is difficult to find really cheap places to stay and you might want to join a program we have listed on our website as accommodation is included in the overall Cost. In cities like Jerusalem you can stay in the Old Town for cheap but this is not the most desirable area. Also please note accommodation prices can be really high at peak times of the year e.g. Passover in April, Autumn festivals and also Christmas which is a popular time for overseas tourists.
  • Safety: When thinking about visiting Israel images of violence and recent turbulence but this country is a very safe destination to visit. You will find Israeli people very friendly and open to meeting foreigners, most people speak English but learning basic Hebrew might come in handy. Always check latest travel advice before departing though and we highly recommend booking a tour where you will get everything arranged and also in-country support. 
  • Food: There are lots of different options for eating out in Israel, throughout the country you will find cafes, restaurants, bars and also street food which is very cheap and tasty. There are lots of healthy options available too. If you are on a budget you might want to but fresh food from local supermarkets and makolets (local convenience grocery stores). Don't be afraid to try the local delicacies, and don't worry there is a range of worldwide food options available e.g. fast food outlets.
