(L) Shopping

Will there be opportunities for shopping?

This tour is not primarily designed to be a shopping tour. Remember that ours is not a shopping tour. However, Time will be allotted for shopping.

Many of the sites we visit have gift shops where you can shop for small souvenirs. There are also a limited number of special vendors who specialize in items like necklaces, DVDs, and books, and you will have an opportunity to purchase these.

Opening and Closing time of Shops

In Israel's major cities, shops are usually open from 9 am until at least 7 pm from Sunday through Thursday. The afternoon break or siesta between 1 pm and 4 pm is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. More and more shopping malls are being built around the country, offering even more flexible hours and a cool, air conditioned environment in which to browse items such as leather, gold, jewelry and diamonds (Israel is the world's No. 1 exporter of diamonds). On Fridays, shops usually close between 2 pm - 3:30 pm and most Jewish establishments do not open on Saturdays

What is VAT?

VAT (Value Added Tax) is a sales tax that is charged for most goods in Israel, Jordan and Egypt. This amount is part of the price - not added on at the cash register. VAT in Israel, Egypt and Jordan is at least 17%. It is possible for you to claim back most of this tax for Israel.

The best way to do this is to see if the retailer you are buying from is affiliated with “Tax Free” shopping. If so, they will give you the instructions for your refund. Generally, all you have to do is collect a completed form from the store which lists your purchases.

You MUST have the form stamped by customs when you leave the country. Look for the TAX FREE SHOPPING symbol.
