Israel, believe it or not is a hot spot to travel and while traveling from the United States can be really expensive, you’re probably going to want a few tips to drop your prices down. If you’re flexible with your traveling, you can save a lot of money on your trip alone.
Getting there via the air…
The first thing that you want to keep in mind is your flight. Experts will tell you that you can save a lot of money by flying either on a Tuesday or a Wednesday. Since these are your slower days, you’re going to be able to save a lot money. Again, this is why its important that you try to be flexible with your flying down there.
As long as you’re not loyal to an airline, you’re going to find that you can compare on many search engines such as Kayak and more. By getting a quote from 3 different airlines, you should get a good idea on what the airline is going to cost you.
Searching for a place to stay…
Like any other vacation spot, you’re going to need a place to stay. Whether you want to stay with a relative/friend, or you want to get a hotel yourself, I wanted to give you some tips on how you can land the best hotel for your dollar.
I always recommend Priceline for bookings. The reason I like them so much is that I can name my own price. No, the hotel won’t accept any price that you send to them, but they will consider prices that are around 30% off the base price, making it a steal sometime! Priceline can save you some money and if you’re not going to buy a package deal, I would highly recommend the price naming service.
You’re going to find that if you book as a package deal, it may or may not work for you. Its going to depend on the time of year, where you’re going to stay, as well as who you book through.
Travel agents still exist and if you’re having a hard time finding something online, you may want to call one up. Websites such as Travelzoo also offer great deal packages that you can take advantage of as well, so be sure to keep your eyes out there.
While these deals aren’t necessary narrowed down to Israel, you can use the same tips and get deals elsewhere as well. If you have any other tips or tricks, be sure to leave them in the comments field below!
