Tips for Planning an Extension
- It’s not over till it’s over. While we encourage extensions, you must participate in the entire Israel Outdoors trip right until we return to the airport at the end. No exceptions to this Birthright Israel rule.
- Plan ahead (we mean it!). Your group flight ticket can be extended, but some airlines limit how many tickets can be extended in the group. Also, availability for date changes can become very limited or even non-existent. This is especially true during the summer and winter holiday seasons.
- Forfeiting your return ticket? You do have the option of forfeiting your return ticket and making your own travel plans home, but you must notify us in advance to avoid losing your $250 deposit.
- You’re on your own! With the exception of programs offered by Masa-Tlalim (formerly Israel Pathways), none of the extension options below are affiliated with Israel Outdoors, and you will no longer be under our supervision or responsibility once the Birthright Israel trip is over.
