Currently, May is the cheapest month in which you can book a flight to Israel. Flying to Israel in February will prove the most costly. There are multiple factors that influence the price of a flight so comparing airlines, departure airports and times can help keep costs down.

When is the best time to book a flight to Israel?

To ensure you get the cheapest price possible for a flight to Israel, you should look to book at least 61 days in advance of your intended travel date. The price of your flight may increase if you delay and leave booking until a week or so before departure.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Israel?

At the moment, Thursday is the most economical day to take a flight to Israel. Friday is likely to be the most costly.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Israel?

At the moment, flights in the afternoon are likely to offer the best value for money for your Israel trip. A flight in the morning will more often than not be of higher cost.

Whatever your reason for flying to Israel, it’s bound to be a spiritual journey. A trip to the Western Wall or a swim in the Dead Sea are just a few of the reasons why travellers of all faiths and all walks of life flock to this destination year after year.

It is no secret that Israel has served as a centre for religious and political tension for centuries.  Therefore, a common concern for those planning a trip to the country is over safety.  However, despite news coverage of war in different parts of the region, it is safe to visit and remains a very popular tourist destination.  Of course, as with anywhere else you may travel to today, it is always good to keep your common sense and wits about you.

There are some cultural and religious rules to keep in mind when visiting Israel. Jews cannot eat dairy and meat together, and Muslims and Jews are forbidden from eating pork at any meal. The falafel and schnitzel are common foods found throughout Israel, and if you’re visiting Israel on a Friday night, remember that it’s the Sabbath (the Jewish Holy Day) and observant Jews are not permitted to cook so many family-owned restaurants will be closed.
