Frequently asked questions and tips

  • Why choose a caravan?

    A caravan trip is one of the best ways to experience the beauty and nature of Israel off the beaten path. It’s an unforgettable experience for anyone who loves nature and Israel and new adventures.

  • What kind of caravan should I choose?

    At Nofey Moledet, we have 12 different models to choose from. Caravans for families with 2 children, caravans for 5-7 people, lightweight caravans, and luxury caravans to travel in style.

    Once you’ve chosen the right type of caravan for your party size, make sure your choice is compatible with the type of vehicle you’ll be driving.

  • What’s better: a camper or a trailer caravan?

    This is an interesting question. In Israel, we recommend using a trailer caravan that’s pulled by a separate vehicle. Because Israel is a small country, you won’t be driving long distances. Instead, you’ll make short trips and a trailer gives you the advantage of leaving it in the parking lot and taking the car for a day trip. You can choose to park in one place for a few nights while making day trips (the “hub-and-spoke” method of travel).

    With no significant difference in price between the camper and trailer options, we recommend renting a trailer caravan in Israel.

  • Do I need a special driver’s license to drive or pull a caravan?

    No, any regular driver’s license from any country should be sufficient.

  • What is the minimum rental age?

    You must be 24 years of age or older to rent a caravan from us.

  • How much does it cost?

    Our pricing is different whether you are renting in the High Season (summer, Jewish holidays) or the Low Season (spring, fall, winter). The price per night decreases if you rent for longer periods. See our full price list here.

  • Where can I park the caravan?

    Israel has over 40 designated parking lots for campers, trailers, and caravans with hookups to water and electricity and toilet and shower facilities. The level of the facilities can vary, so we’ve reviewed them all for you! Download our recommended Caravan Parking Map here.

  • Do I need to pay for parking rental every night or can we park anywhere?

    Each caravan has a battery that can supply electricity for the water pump.
    The fridge and cooking can work with the included gas tank.
    The hot water, air conditioning, and other electronics need to be connected to electricity, or connected to a generator.
    All of this means that you can go a night without parking in a designated lot, but after that you should find a way to connect to electricity.

  • What are the sizes of the beds in the caravan?

    The double bed is 140×200 cm, and the single beds are 80X190 cm.

  • Can I book at the last minute?

    Technically, you may be able to (depending on if we have availability).
    But we don’t recommend it!
    The most successful family vacations are planned well in advance.
    This also gives you the chance to get the whole family involved and looking forward to the experience.

    We recommend booking your caravan about 3 months in advance (this is also a good place to mention that our “gold-star” parking places tend to fill up fast, especially in the high season.
    Booking early ensures you won’t get locked out of your preferred options).

  • How should I plan my itinerary?

    Israel is a small country, yet there’s so much to do! It can be tempting to want to “pack” the days full of activities. And while that may work for some people, for most others it’s a recipe for stress and exhaustion.

    First of all, involve the whole family in the planning. Figure out your “must-see” places, and let everyone pick one top attraction.

    Don’t forget to plan downtime to relax, eat meals as a family, and just hang out in nature. After all, that’s why you’re traveling in a caravan!

    You don’t want to spend all of your time on the road, so it’s best to plan enough time to see everything that you want to see. We recommend 14 days to travel the whole country, which provides enough time to take in the sights without feeling rushed.

    If you don’t have 14 days, we recommend traveling around a smaller area to have enough time to stop and enjoy. A good rule of thumb is not to drive more than 100 km per day.

  • What season is best to travel in?

    For such a small country, Israel has vastly different climates. Take into account the season as you plan your trip. Winter is best spent traveling the warmer south of the country, with cooler nights around the campfire, while summer is best spent in the cooler north and in the hills, enjoying the many springs and waterfalls (and of course the Kinneret).

    Each caravan has both air conditioning and heat, so you can travel in comfort in any weather.

  • What should I pack for the trip?

    First, start with comfortable clothing, toiletries, and other personal items. Don’t forget towels, kitchen utensils (pots, pans, plates, cutlery, etc). Books and toys for the kids, camping chairs, picnic blankets, sunshades, and anything else to enjoy nature outside the caravan.

    Depending on the season, bathing suits, sunscreen, hats, socks, proper shoes, and water bottles.
    Flip-flops are great for shared showers in the camping grounds.
    If you’re traveling with small children, don’t forget a stroller and hiking carrier. Your caravan comes with bedding for the beds.

  • Any other tips?

    We recommend not packing too many suitcases and traveling as light as possible.
    Bring plenty of things to keep the kids entertained while driving.
