Airport transfer tips to and from hotels
To Tel Aviv (our tour begins in Tel Aviv): Private taxi from airport to hotel in Tel Aviv averages $50 and readily available at arrival level.
From Jerusalem to airport (Tour ends in Jerusalem): Private taxi is recommended and hotel will help ordering one. Cost $70 - $90. Large taxis could also be ordered for 3-4 passengers.
Other option from Jerusalem: Nesher "Sherut" - Shared van or taxi transfer
Nesher is a reasonable alternative to a private taxi and hotel could help with ordering one. The cost per person is approx. $15.00 USD.
Of course there are advantages and disadvantages using the Nesher taxi system. The obvious advantage for a sole traveler (one or two people) is price.
Speed & Convenience
PRIVATE TAXI - It's fast and comfortable. Departure from the hotel is immediate.
NESHER SHERUT - You have to wait van to fill up with passengers from other hotels.
