On the first hand, the most preferable and used method is taking a custom private tour package in the Holy Land.

Getting from Ben Gurion Airport to Tel Aviv by a train

The most recommended method for getting between Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion Airport is by a train.

Upon your arrival to the Holy Land, you will find the train station at Terminal 3.

Trains to Tel Aviv are frequent, modern and clean making your trip a pleasant journey.

However, keep in mind that the Train stations in Tel Aviv are located on the edge of the city.

As a result, you will have to take a bus or a taxi to reach almost all hotels, thus increasing the time travel and costs.

On the other hand, the fares of the train journey are very reasonable making transport by a train the cheapest and most recommended public mean of transportation.

Note that trains in Israel do not run during Sabbath, stopping on a Friday afternoon and not resuming until late on Saturday evening.

Therefore, during Sabbath you will have to turn to more private transport methods such as Private Taxi, Rented car, etc.

For more information about train timetable and fares check the Israel Railways website.
