Prepare for Your Visit in Israel

Millions of visitors flock to Israel each year, and many of those represent a number of Christians, Jews and those of various other religious faiths that consider the country to be the actual biblical Holy Land. 

There is absolutely no doubt that visitors may touch base with their religious roots during a visit to Israel, but this incredible Middle Eastern country that is located on the beautiful Mediterranean Sea offers so much more. 
Set Israel as your next vacation destination, and you can expect to experience and enjoy an incredible variety of sights and attractions that you won't find anywhere else in our entire wide world.

You will no doubt want to experience as much as possible during your time in Israel, and there are a few basic things that you should do before you get started on your adventure.

• Reserve Your Accommodations: You'll need a pillow where you can rest your weary head after a full day of activities, and you will find an excellent variety of accommodations throughout Israel. These include hotels that range from budget friendly to luxury, cozy guesthouses, popular hostels, roomy apartments and even rooms that are located in private homes.

The Kibbutz Hotels network is very popular in the country, and you may also visit the tourist information offices that are found in all of Israel's major cities. There you can use the computer bank to access listings of accommodations that are offered in private homes for any area in the country. The staff at the offices are also always happy to offer visitors their own recommendations.

• Rent a Small Car: Visitors to Israel may choose to travel about the country by way of intercity buses, the train service or by sherut, which is a shared taxi-type van. However, for those who want the luxury of real freedom to explore the country, you should definitely plan to rent a small car.

It's important to note that visitors may not take a rental car into or out of the country. Eldan is considered the largest Israeli car-rental firm, and you will be able to rent a car in advance for pick-up at the airport or at many spots throughout the country.

• Choose a Reliable Cell Phone Rental: You must select a cell phone rental plan that works well in Israel and allows you to make contact back home. By choosing a smartphone with unlimited WiFi and calls, you can be sure of unlimited internet access. This will allow you to find the best accommodations and do all the research needed to ensure, that you don't miss anything that you may want to see in any city that you choose to travel through. 

You will also be just a phone call away from assistance if it's needed or a phone call to update your family about all of your wonderful adventures. For these reasons, our cell phone rental may be the most important step you take when beginning your journey through Israel.
