I will be in Tiberias for one day, Galilee for 2 days and Jerusalem for 3 days. Where can I safely exchange American dollars to INS?
In every city (including Tiberias and Jerusalem) there are money changer shops in which you will get the best rate
Thanks for reporting on your own thread. :)
There are plenty of no commission exchange kiosks and banks all over the place in Israel. The best rate is usually through the no commission kiosks. I asked the same question about Tiberias last year... You can see the response and great answers I received here:
I had no problem finding a place with those instructions.
For Jerusalem there are exchange kiosks all over the place. I avoided those in the Old City, but used some on Jaffa Road. One was close to the light rail stop City Hall and there are others near the city centre stop.
Where in Galilee will you be? Tiberias is in Galilee.
Heather, For Tiberias, it's close to Holiday Inn Hotel and in Galilee, by the Dead Sea.
Unfortunately, the Dead Sea is not in the Galilee.
As samd said, the Dead Sea is not in Galilee. If you would like to post the name and address of your hotel that you think is located near the Dead Sea we may be able to help you more.
Thank you Heather for the reminder on the money exchange kiosk....we will be visiting Israel later in the year and I appreciate your advice.
Did you check the rates charged by your bank for ATM withdrawls? ATMs are located in convenient locations and provide a convience of not having to carry large sums of money or spend vacation time standing in line at an exchange. Its a viable option if you have a bank card
The Scots hotel is in Tiberias. There is a currency exchange on Galil street about 200 feet from the entrance to the hotel on the left side of the street 2nd or 3rd store front. There is also a bank a couple of doors down with an ATM that accepts foreign cards.
Thanks to all for the valuable information.
