Trip Reports:
@Yehuda
When crossing to Taba:
Bring a pen.
If you have luggage israel might make you pay the 106 shekel exit fee. You can receive a refund on your way out if you save the stub and show your hilton reservation.
When leaving egypt you need an exit stamp and (currently) they give you those in the arrivals hall.
The hilton is usually cheap or 5,000 hilton points.
Everyone knows your jewish.
The casinos use USD and have exchange places in them.
You can also use visa/mc for a 2% fee.(purchase, not CA)

Depnding on how many ppl U go with , Paying 4 tickets usually is $75 each thats $300 just before anything a car and gas is $200 and u can enjoy the car there, but  there are buses to the airports for cheap so FOR 2 PPL ITS A BREEZE

In Eilat I've gotten to the airport 15 min before flight time.
Love small airports.
