Which day is cheapest to fly to Jerusalem?

The cheapest flights to Jerusalem are usually found when departing on a Wednesday. The departure day with the highest cost at present is Saturday.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Jerusalem?

Jerusalem flights can be made cheaper if you choose a flight in the afternoon. Booking a flight in the evening will likely mean higher prices.

Jerusalem is one of the most sacred cities in the world and serves as the Holy Land that gave rise to the three Monotheistic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  Thus, it is no surprise that those travelling there seek out not only the pleasures of a holiday, but also the possibility of some enlightenment on a spiritual plane. 

Stepping off the flight in Jerusalem can pose as a culture shock for some – this modern city in ancient Israel is full of people running to catch buses, hail taxis and fight traffic on their way to work, temple and school. But even in this “new” Jerusalem, history is reverent.

Travellers booking flights to Jerusalem inevitably find themselves in the “Old City” – the walled section of this city where most of the sights are situated. Here, holidaymakers can find the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the holiest Christian site in Jerusalem; the Wailing Wall (Western Wall), where Jews come to pray and visitors can leave notes between the cracks of the wall’s stones; and Mt. Zion, the burial place of King David. By night, the city comes alive with concerts, nightclubs and restaurants raging until the wee hours of the morning.

When is the best time to fly to Jerusalem?

Peak Season:
Jerusalem is busy in July and August when Israelis take their holidays and head for the city. Not only are hotels and attractions crowded, some hotels add a surcharge to their rates.

Hotel prices are also very high during the Passover (early April) and Sukkoth (late September–early October) holidays. At the same time, services are curtailed and many Israelis go away for Passover. Hotel reservations for Passover need to be four months in advance and plane reservations six months to a year in advance.

Jerusalem is also very crowded during school holidays.

Off Season:
May and early to mid-September are pleasant times to visit Jerusalem.

If you prefer cool, rainy weather to dry heat, and less expensive accommodations, November through March are a good time for you to visit.

Getting around Jerusalem

Jerusalem has extensive bus routes which provide service from 5.30am to around midnight. Service stops half an hour before sunset on Friday and the eve of a religious holiday, then resumes after dark on Saturday. There are discount cards such as the kartissiyah (eleven rides for the price of ten) and hofshi-hodshi (a month of unlimited travel on urban buses).

Taxis can be hailed, called, or picked up at a taxi stand or major hotel. Drivers are required to turn on their meters, but many claim the meters are broken — you need to negotiate a fare or find another taxi. Fares increase 25 per cent at night and on Shabbat.

Shared taxis are minivans or minibuses that seat seven or twelve passengers. Shared taxis usually follow public bus routes, but take alternate routes to avoid traffic. Passengers can get on and off at any point. Both drivers and passengers are impatient with dawdlers, so board quickly.

Bicycling is becoming more popular, and there is ongoing construction of a bike path around Jerusalem. However, finding a rental bike is difficult.

Driving is difficult and finding parking a challenge. Fortunately, between walking, taxis, and buses, you probably won’t need to drive.
