Why you should take a flight to Israel

Whatever your reason for booking flights to Israel, it’s bound to be a spiritual journey. Cast aside your preconceived notions of this country and book tickets to Israel for more personal reasons. A trip to the Western Wall or a swim in the Dead Sea are just a few of the reasons Christian, Muslim and Jewish travelers plan Israel flights and trips on a yearly basis.

Let’s begin planning the trip to Israel by answering the most common question: is it safe to fly to Israel? The answer is yes, it is safe, but like anywhere you travel today it’s always good to keep your common sense and wits about you. It’s no secret Israel is center of religious tension in the Middle East. Muslims, Jews and Christians have been fighting over the “Promise Land” for centuries. While today’s wars seem more violent, they are also very segregated to certain parts of the country which remain off limits to tourists. However, the rest of Israel is worth exploring and travelers booking flights to Israel won’t be disappointed.

Before you book airline tickets to Israel, there are some cultural and religious rules to keep in mind. 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.

For cheap flights to Israel, consider booking Israel trips through travel organizations or community groups that include the price of airfare in the Israel travel package. Planned tours include a visit to all the must-see Israel destination spots and some tours will include a visit to a kibbutz or community service activities in an Israeli village. No matter how you book a trip to Israel, your experience in the Holy Land is sure to be memorable.

What is good to know if travelling to Israel?

  • Israel is one of the countries with significant historical impact on the world. Jerusalem is a place of pilgrimage for three religions, and everywhere in the city are remains and relics of importance. However, this also means it can become very busy with tourists and accommodations can be full year-round. Be sure to book local Israel flights and accommodations ahead before you arrive.
  • The country’s second largest city, Tel Aviv can feel a million miles – or years – from Jerusalem. Situated on the Mediterranean Sea, the city is gleaming and modern, full of high rises, shops, restaurants, theaters and everything you’d expect in a metropolis. A major attraction are its waterfront and beach, around which most tourists, and many locals, congregate from sunrise to sunset. The beach extends for the stretch of the city, but different areas attract different activities and people – just keep walking till you find the part you want.
  • If you really want to enjoy the beach experience, head to Eilat, the most heavily advertised tourist area in the country. At the southwest tip of the country, the resort of Eilat is focused on vacationers: swim with dolphins, go diving in the coral reef, water skiing or boating, eat in luxury restaurants, stay in five star hotels and simply relax. Temperatures here are high year-round, even in winter rarely dropping below 70F.
  • No trip to Israel is complete without floating in the Dead Sea. The saltiest body of water on Earth, it is famous for its properties of buoyancy. When you’re in the area, head to Masada, the site of a group of ancient palaces on a steep rock overlooking the Dead Sea.
  • Nazareth is, understandably, full of Christian sites. There are various places which are supposed to be the site of Mary’s visitation from the Angel Gabriel. The huge Basilica of the Annunciation has been built over one (where Mary’s house once stood). Another is “Mary’s Well”.
