Why do people book transfers from Jerusalem

Transfer is a transportation service which meets and brings you exactly where you asked: a Kiwitaxi driver meets you at the airport (as close to the Arrivals as possible), at the hotel reception or at the exactly given address, helps you with your luggage and brings you fast- track to your destination.

You can pre-order inexpensive taxi transfer to the city center or to the airport, comfortable car transfer for the family with children, Economy minivan for a tourist group or a Luxury transfer. The transfer cost from Jerusalem is fixed at the time of pre-order and never rises : either when the driver is waiting for the passenger, when the stop is necessary, or because of traffic jams.

Customer feedback

Arrived as planned, car was well maintained and got us to the destination efficiently. Driver was also friendly and helpful.
Very good driver! But I'm very sorry about my mistake to wait outside the hotel while the driver is waiting in the hotel lobby and the trip begins with a 18-minute-delay. It was my mistake. And I'm sorry to have only 7 schekel in my pocket for the driver's tip.
Everything was good/perfect. On time, good sign with my name on it, good car in my case a BMW 730. I will recomment KIWITAXI everyone!!!
Everything was great!!! We were lucky with the driver that met us on time at the airport, helped with luggage and drove fast to the hotel. During the road we learned a lot of useful thing about the city life. Highly recommended service!
I liked that the cabdriver offered Wi-Fi to me. It is very useful to get in touch with your family after arriving to Moscow if you haven’t got a Russian SIM card.
Hello, the service was excellent. The driver very kind and helpful. The possibility to pay in cash was very good as I do not have a credit card. I would definitively recommend Kiwitaxi to all of my friends and would choose it in any country where it operates. Thanks again
The service was excellent. Easy to purchase and quick confirmation. Good price for this service with a return discount. No delays, the driver was very warm and nice. The trip was smooth and ok.
Service from the driver was excellent. He was early and amenable for my family. The vehicle was in excellent condition with booster seats provided as asked for. Very impressed with the service and overall quality.
Service was excellent, driver was on time, courteous and very helpful in guiding/informing me about the city tourism, as well as ensuring I was safe & inside my hotel before departing. Certainly worth the money! very glad I decided to book with Kiwitaxi ahead of time. Will likely be using again for future travels, and would definitely recommend to others.
Arrived on time, good polite driver who drove safely and had room for a lot of luggage. 10pnts. Halvor

How to Get from Jerusalem to the Airport and Other Destinations

Annually, several million tourists visit Jerusalem. In this city, lots of attention is paid to the transport infrastructure development. One can get from Jerusalem to the nearest cities and the coast of the Dead Sea by taxi, transfer, buses, or trains.

Taxi from Jerusalem

If time matters, and you are used to comfort, it is better to take a taxi. This travel option allows you to reach your destination fast in case you have lots of baggage, are traveling with children or pets, need a Premium-class car or a special service for passengers with reduced mobility. Unlike any other mode of transportation in the city, taxis operate both during Shabbat and on holidays.

There are yellow Arab and white Jewish taxis in Jerusalem. An Arab taxi driver may refuse to take you to the Jewish part of the city and vice versa. So note this when planning a trip. Besides usual taxi services in Jerusalem, one can also find special tourist cars having a picture of people carrying a bunch of grapes on them. The drivers of such cars are professional guides.

You can order a car at a special rank, by making a phone call or using a special app. The starting fare plus the cost of the first 500 m will be around 3 dollars, and every next 90 m will cost 0.08 dollars. After you travel 15 km, you will have to pay 0.08 dollars for every 75 m. On weekends and at night, rates increase by 25%.

Besides tariffs, there are also some additional charges: you will have to pay 1.4 dollars extra for a trip from Tel Aviv Airport and 0.6 dollars for a trip from the Port of Haifa, while the charge for baggage will be around 1.1 dollars and for a phone call – 1.4 dollars.

Public transport from Jerusalem

In order to travel to neighboring cities and different sights, it is comfortable to use a train or a bus. Unfortunately, Jerusalem doesn’t have its own airport. The nearest air hub is located in Tel Aviv – 60 km away.

You can reach Tel Aviv by bus № 405 which departs every 15 minutes. Its travel time is about one hour, and the fare is around 42 dollars. If you need to get to Haifa, take the bus №940 or № 947. Thus, the trip cost will be 100 dollars, and the journey will take 2 hours and 30 minutes. The bus to Eilat № 444 departs six times a day. Its ticket cost is around 194 dollars, while its travel time is about 5 hours.

The train ticket to Tel Aviv costs around 8 dollars. The train can take you right to the airport, as the train station is located in the third terminal building. Getting there will take you about two hours. The only drawback of rail travel from Jerusalem is the remoteness of the railway station from the city center. You will have to get to it by taxi or city bus.

Jerusalem: useful information

Jerusalem is a sacred city for Christians, Jews, and Muslims. It is a place of pilgrimage for believers from all over the world and the most ancient city in the Middle East, the history of which dates back more than 6000 years. The modern Jerusalem is divided into two parts – the New City and the Old City.

The Old City is divided into four districts – Jewish, Christian, Armenian, and Muslim. One of the major religious shrines of the world – the Western Wall – is located here, as well as the Via Dolorosa and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in which, according to canons, Jesus Christ was buried and raised from the dead.

The construction of the New City began in 1860. Here, one can find the Archaeological Park, the grove Yaar HaShalom, the King Hussein’s Palace, and the Israel Museum which has collections of more than 500 000 ancient artifacts.
