Israel Travel FAQs
- How many days do I need in Israel?
How long it takes to travel in Israel depends on the breadth and depth of your visit. Generally, one week is enough to have a nice experience in the major cities of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. If you expect a deep exploration, we highly recommend sparing 10 days to explore more the country has to offer. Please contact us to customize your trip, and any part can be altered to fit your needs.
- Can I combine my visit to Israel with another country?
Yes. With our tailor-made service, it is easy to extend your Israel tour to other countries, such as Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Morocco, and more. Odynovo operates tours in 70+ destinations in the Middle East and other continents. If you prefer a multi-country tour, just let us know and we can help to make it happen.
- How can I obtain my visa for an Israel tour?
Under normal circumstances, tourists who come from visa-exempt countries such as America, British, Canada, Australia, etc. can enter Israel without a visa to stay up to 90 days.
However, if you're not from a visa-exempt country or need to stay longer, you need to obtain a tourist visa. Documents required:
1. Passport or travel document with validity not less than 6 months.
2. Photograph of the applicant, taken within the past six months.
3. A completed and signed application for a visa to enter Israel.
4. Round-trip tickets and proof of a hotel reservation or address of where you will be staying in Israel.
5. Health Insurance (a letter stating that you are fully covered for your international travel).
* Please check the relevant embassy/consulate's website for specific required documents.
- Is it a common practice to give tips in Israel?
Tipping is a part of the culture in Israel. You can decide the amount at your discretion. Commonly, you should tip around 10% of the bill to the waiter at the restaurant, USD 5-10 per traveler per day to the guide, USD 6-8 per traveler per day to the driver. However, you may pay more or less depending on their services.
- How should I dress?
Generally speaking, dress codes are extremely relaxed in modern Israeli society, and casual dress is the norm in Israel for both men and women. When visiting any religious sites like mosques, synagogues, churches, and the Wailing Wall, please wear clothes that cover your elbows and knees. When visiting orthodox Jewish neighborhoods, make sure you dress modestly, wearing long sleeves and full-length pants or skirts, and avoid wearing a Keffiyeh in Jewish areas. Keep the above in mind, you just need to dress decently and respectfully according to the weather.
- Is it safe to visit Israel?
Israel is overall safe to travel to, with considerably low crime rates where tourists are free to explore without having to worry about street crime. Especially the main tourist areas - Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Dead Sea, and Galilee, remain as safe as always. Traveling with Odynovo means you will enjoy a totally private tour, with a personal guide and car. So, take it easy and enjoy the vacation.
- Is it common to use credit cards in Israel?
Credit cards are widely accepted in Israel, with Visa and Master Card being the most commonly used. But it is suggested that withdraw some local cash for everyday purchases like meals, beverages and small souvenirs.
- Is there any special advice for women travelers while visiting Israel?
