Changers & ATM’s

Changers & ATM’s

The Israeli coin is the “Shekel“. The smaller coins (0.1 of a shekel for example) are called “Agorot“.
We recommend changing money ahead since Euros and Dollars are not accepted.

Most places will accept international credit cards (Diners is rarely accepted) but it will be charged extra for exchange commission plus a fee.
ATM’s can be easily found at any big city and in most gas stations. Luckily most of them operate in English and some even in Russian and French.
If you would like to exchange money in Israel you could do it in the airport’s exchange, though the commission is usually a bit high. Banks are the less recommended for exchange.*

* There is also the Post-office bank which operates almost as a regular bank but the exchange rates are much more attractive.
