Get Insurance

If you are not insured or if your home medical insurance policy does not cover you abroad, then you NEED an insurance policy that covers you for the entire trip in Israel. An inexpensive and easy way to fulfill this requirement is to purchase travelers insurance through CTAS, which is underwritten by Harel Insurance Company, Israel’s largest medical insurer. Click here for full insurance policy terms.

What it Covers

  • Medical insurance in Israel with coverage for most pre-existing conditions included
  • Insurance in case your baggage is lost, damaged, or stolen (up to £565)
  • Optional cancellation insurance for coverage of domestic flight costs in case you miss the trip due to a personal illness, an immediate family medical emergency, or a labor strike
NOTE: Pre-existing conditions are covered by CTAS so long as the condition has been stable for 12 months preceding arrival in Israel and so long as there has been no hospitalisation for the condition in the six months preceding arrival in Israel. Additional exclusions include coverage for the treatment of cancer, AIDS, dialysis, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, and active psychiatric conditions

What it Costs

  • The CTAS policy costs $40 and provides coverage in Israel during the 10-day trip!
  • If you extend your trip in Israel, your insurance policy can be extended for $3.50/day
  • There is a $5 insurance add-on if you wish to include the supplemental cancellation insurance.

NOTE: Even if you already have medical insurance that is valid abroad, both Birthright Israel and Israel Outdoors recommend purchasing a travelers insurance policy for the supplemental benefits.
