Israeli Shekel Currency Guide

The Israel of today is a modern high-tech society a million miles away from its Kibbutz image of the 70s and 80s. You should budget about £100 a day for your stay in Israel if you are staying in three or four star accommodation. If you intend to buy diamonds from the Israel Diamond Centre in Ramat Gan then you may need to budget a little more! Our statistics show that the average order for Israeli Shekels is for £560 (3,100ILS) based upon orders placed between 1st of August and 31st October 2013.

…commission of 4% is not uncommon…

It is generally not recommended to take foreign currency to Israel and change it there. Commission of 4% is not uncommon in the banks, and you should avoid street money changers at all costs. There are a great variety of online exchange bureau to choose from to buy your Shekels before leaving UK, so competition is good.

ATM machines are widely available in Israel and take all common credit, debit and prepaid currency cards. You may prefer to take some of all of your spending money in plastic.

The FCO advise against all travel to Israel and all occupied territories such as Gaza and the West Bank. This may have implications for your travel insurance should you choose to visit.
