On my way from Eilat to Jerusalem I swiped my card for 349nis at Dor Alon Tzukim on the 90 about 100km out of Eilat, and when I got the charge on my card it was for $125, which is around $30 more than what I should have paid. The driver who swiped my card didn't get a receipt (Guy didn't give it to him, now in retrospect i see why). What should i do?

IME in Israel the gas stations post a large charge, then refund the difference to what you actually consumed. Wait a week or two then dispute it.

That's what someone told me few minutes ago. I didn't know this. Good to know. Thanks.

Sorry if this is the wrong thread.

Traveling with the kids and need someone on same flight to assist with check in and boarding process only. No help needed on flight.

Not sure if this helps you but you can get for a very decent rate a VIP service in TLV for checkin and security. PM if you need help arranging it.

Can you explain exactly what these VIP services provide?

Straight thru security before checkin? As in Business class line?

How about checkin? Do you get to the front of the line there?

And the xray machine line?

Lounge access?

Anything else?
