Advice On Israel Travel Deals

Airport selection will influence your decision on which airline carrier to use. Airlines will often change their flight itineraries and departure airports based on current economics and passenger headcounts. It is advisable to check with the airline or your travel agent about availability if you need to book your travel through a specific airport.

For any non-stop flight from the UK to Israel, the duration of a flight is approximately 5-6 hours. For such a long flight, you may want to consider upgrading from Coach to Business Class or even First Class to increase your level of comfort. The upgraded classes offer more leg and seat room plus other additional amenities.

Advice On Israel Travel Deals

If your travel dates are somewhat flexible, many of the airlines and travel websites offer an option for you to have notices emailed to you when a special Israel travel deal is being offered. The peak travel season for Israel is from May to September, so you can expect to see the highest ticket prices during these months. And therefore, flight prices are typically reduced during the off-season.

When on a business trip to Israel, you may not have the luxury of altering your travel dates to get the best ticket price. However, consider changing your departure airport instead. Sometimes, airlines will offer discounts that are based on the departing airport to increase passenger headcount from that facility.

If you are a passport holder from a country that does not require an entry visa for Israel, you may be able to take advantage of last-minute deals. Airlines prefer to have the flights take off with a person in every seat, so if the flight isn’t full within 24 hours of departure, they will offer irresistible deals in order to sell those extra seats. This is a great strategy for those who can travel on a moment’s notice.

If you have dietary restrictions requiring kosher meals, then one of the Israeli-based airlines may be your best choice. It is important to note that most major airline carriers can provide kosher alternatives with advance notice, but with an Israeli airline, no advanced requests are necessary.

Some experiences travellers recommend that you wait to book your flights until the last minute. Others will advise you to book as early as possible to get the seat you want. Many recommend searching online at any travel site, such as Travelocity, Expedia or Priceline. And others look to the traditional travel agent or the airlines themselves. Each method has its pros and its cons. The best option is typically comparing the prices from several different sources and choosing the best one.

  1. Good points. When I was in school we were forced to do math by hand. I was helping my nephew with his math the other day and he only had 2 steps written down. I noticed the answer was wrong so I asked him to walk through the steps and show me what he did. He paused and told me he put the equation in the calculator. I knew the problem immediately was an issue with order of operation, but I explained to him you cant just blindly plug it in the calculator and expect it to be right. I still have him walk through it and show me he knew how to do it.
