Holidays

Israel observes the dates of Jewish holidays as official holidays. Since vacation days are set in accordance with them, the hotels during holidays’ period are getting high on rates.

Yom Kippur: There are no radio or television broadcasts, airports are shut down, there is no public transportation, and all streets, shops and businesses are closed.
Weekends: Weekends are Friday to Saturday, but non-Jewish people may choose Friday, Saturday, or Sunday as their main weekly holiday. At some hotels the late check in applies on Saturdays, about 2 hours after the sunset.
Summer: Another vacation period is August, when most of the families go on their annual vacations. The rates at hotels increase in a significant way.

Christians and Muslims celebrate holidays on the appropriate days. Catholic and Protestant Christians celebrate Christmas and Easter according to the international calendar. Orthodox Christians celebrate these holidays about two weeks later.
