Israel is home to an incredible variety of travel destinations, from the hustle and bustle of Jerusalem and the dynamic nightlife of Tel Aviv, to the desert landscapes of the Masada National Park and the beaches of Eilat.
Tel Aviv was recently ranked the world's 10th most expensive city, so a trip to Israel may not come cheap. Prices will go down as you move away from the big cities, but here's you much you can expect to pay for things in Tel Aviv:
Check out our Tel Aviv travel guide to find out how to keep costs down on your trip.
Cards are accepted in all shops, restaurants and bars, but you’ll need cash for markets.
ATMs are easy to find throughout the city, but aren’t refilled during Shabbat (Friday-Saturday), so may be low on cash on the weekends.
Taxis are cash only, but you can also use Gett, the Israeli equivalent of Uber, which takes digital payments via an app.
Buses are cashless, and can be paid for using either a Rav Kav card or the Hop On app.
