Money & costs
The best deals for changing money are at the private commission-free change offices all over the New City and East Jerusalem. In the Old City you’ll find exchange bureaux near Damascus Gate and Jaffa Gate. In the City Centre there are many near Zion Sq. Some moneychangers, especially around Ben Yehuda St, will also change travellers cheques. Note that they close early on Friday and remain closed all day Saturday. Banks with ATMs, such as Mizrahi and Leumi, are found on every block in the City Centre.
American Express (624 0830; 18 Shlomzion HaMalka St) Replaces lost travellers cheques.
Mizrahi Bank (cnr Jaffa Rd & Shlomzion HaMalka St) ATM access.
