Book holidays in Israel to explore hip Tel Aviv, see the holy sites of Jerusalem, or soak up the sun in splendid Red Sea resorts such as Eilat.

Jaffa, Israel

Find out why Israel holidays are popular with a wide variety of holidaymakers…


Wedged between the open waters of the Mediterranean Sea and a small slice of the Red Sea, visitors looking for a beach holiday in Israel will not be disappointed.

Down on the shores of the Red Sea is the sun-baked resort of Eilat. Large luxury hotels line the beaches here, while tax-free shopping lures those on the prowl for a bargain. With a mountain backdrop and year-round sunshine, you can’t go wrong with a destination such as Eilat when booking package holidays to Israel.

For chic city hotels and a cool, cosmopolitan vibe, meanwhile, head to Tel Aviv. Vibrant nightlife fuses with history and culture in this most modern of cities.

Jerusalem is another popular option for holidaymakers travelling to Israel. Worshippers flock to the Old City to make pilgrimages to Christian, Jewish and Islamic holy sites. But look beyond those walls, and you will discover that there is much more to this ancient city. Home to palaces, tombs, archaeological sites and monuments, there are also many bars and clubs where the youth of Jerusalem let their hair down and dance all night long.

Flights to Israel from UK airports take around four and a half hours, a similar length of time to journeys from the UK to Spain’s Canary Islands – another hotspot for winter sun.

FAQS about holidays to Israel

Is it safe to go to Israel?

The political situation is complex and fast-changing. The UK Government advises against all travel to Gaza, some areas in the north of the West Bank, and areas close to the Lebanon and Syria borders. Always check the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) advice before travelling.

Do I need a visa to go to Israel?

No, UK passport holders do not need a visa to enter Israel. Upon arrival, you will be granted entry for up to three months. If you fly into Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport, you will get an entry card instead of an entry stamp on your passport. Keep the card with your passport until you leave.

Are there any local customs I need to be aware of?

Dress modestly in Jerusalem, the West Bank, Gaza and any ultra-Orthodox Jewish areas. Don’t take photographs of military or police personnel.

Getting around Israel

For the most part, Israel’s main towns and cities, such as Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Acre, are very walkable, while taxis and minivans, known as monit sherut, are also popular for longer distances. Buses are cheap and plentiful in Israel, and connect most of the major towns and cities. Car rental in Israel is affordable and convenient if you’re planning to visit multiple places during your trip. For the most part, major roads and highways are well maintained. It is always advisable to plan your route before you travel.
