Question

My husband and I are flying into TLV a few days ahead of our tour. We will be staying at The Andromeda Hill Apartments for those few days and we need to know the best way to get there with our luggage.

Date and approximate time, please.

Taxis are always available (and you can see the cost here: iaa.gov.il/en-US/…TaxiFareCalculator.aspx (choose destination Tel Aviv; Jaffa is part of the same municipality), but if it's a day and time when public transport is running, you can take a train (or railway replacement bus) to Tel Aviv, and then a local bus from there (bus not really recommended for people with luggage who don't know their way around, but not impossible); or a taxi from the railway station to your apartment.

Send a signal, and if public transport is an option and you're interested, I (or someone else) will help you with that.

Taxi is best option. There really isn't a bus that stops at those apartments from anywhere.

Are these taxis readily available at the airport at 5pm in the afternoon on a Thursday?

6. Re: Question

Any official cab works. Cabs are very professional and reliable -- just insist that they used the meter rather than a quoted, flat rate except for intercity trips or trips to/from the airport. At the airport, just go to the official dispatcher line and do NOT go with anyone who approaches you in the arrival hall. In the cities, just hail a cab on the street or ask the hotel to call you one or use the GETT app (works like Uber, but with official cabs) on your phone (if you will have a data plan).

Taxis are always available at the airport. You don't need to reserve anything in advance, which (a) would cost a lost more, and (b) might not turn up.

Follow the signs to TAXIS immediately outside the arrivals hall.

From the airport DO NOT ASK FOR THE METER!!!! take the fixed price. You never know what kind of traffic is ahead. Use the official taxi stand on the left when you exit the arrivals hall.

You should ask for the meter for rides *within a city*, not from the airport to Tel Aviv (or any other city). And tipping taxi drivers is not customary or expected, unless the driver performs some extra service such as carrying your luggage into your apartment. In fact, if the fare comes to say 149 shekels and you give him 150, he will rummage around for one shekel change (which you would probably tell him to keep, but you needn't feel you should).
