Travel Arrangements

Private Tour Guide

Shuttle service from airport to hotels will be provided at several times (T.B.A)

  • CURRENCY

Most business establishments in Israel accept only New Israeli Shekels (NIS). Currency exchange points are available and usually offer a better rate than banks.

ATM machines are also widely available and most commonly used credit cards can be used to draw cash in Israeli currency or for paying services at hotels, stores etc.

  • TRANSPORT

If you have arranged shuttle service with us from the Ben-Gurion Airport, when you come out of baggage claim and customs, you will enter a reception area where our driver will be waiting for you, carrying a 2015 ISAPA sign. If you are arriving at a date other than June 10 or 11, or wish to arrange travel back to the airport, the following travel options are available:

Train from Ben-Gurion Airport to Beit Yehoshua (near Wingate and Netanya) (about $8 per person)

Israel Railways

Bus (about $9 per person):

Egged Bus System

 

 

Taxi (about $60-$70, depending on time of day)

If you wish to order a taxi in advance: Avi – 050-790-6033 (Night); Yakov – 050-422-0226 (Day)

Service cabs:

If you are interested in travelling within Israel during your stay, there is also a service cab service available, which is similar to a bus, but picks up only up to 10-12 passengers at any time. It stops or lets off passengers wherever they wish on its route (See picture below)

 

  •  TECHNOLOGY

In Israel, the electric current is between 110-220 Hz. If you are bringing devices with a different electric current, we suggest you bring a universal adaptor.

In order to prevent any computer complications, we strongly urge all participants to send us their power point presentations ahead of time, so we can upload these in advance and check that they can be uploaded on our system. If you are using any other technological tools or video clips, we suggest you send these to us in advance to check on our system as well. No materials you send us will be made public without your consent. Please send materials to secmed@wincol.ac.il

There will be a presentation preparation room during the conference and our Information Technology staff will assist participants in uploading their presentations during registration if these have not been sent in advance.

  • SABBATH IN ISRAEL

Friday is considered a half day in Israel and most business establishments close at about 15:00 until Saturday at sundown (about 19:00-20:00). Some restaurants and cafes are open (especially in Tel-Aviv) and kosher restaurants are closed.

There is no public transportation from Friday afternoon to Saturday at sundown. However, service cabs (see picture above) is private and is available.
