A word of warning during the Israeli school holidays and especially from July 1st to August 26th Eilat is packed. And I mean really packed. Israelis love Eilat more than any other Israeli travel destination and they start booking Eilat hotels from May for the summer break.
Here are several things to consider:
- In July and August the Eilat hotel prices are the highest.
- Because of the demand they book up fast and early – the earlier you book the cheaper they’ll be.
- Also because of the demand Eilat hotels book only in blocks of Sunday to Thursday (4 nights) and Thursday to Saturday ((3 night). Cheap hostels and tourist class hotels may be more willing to give you single nights but the better hotels definitely will not.
