Terms and Conditions:
Each traveler, by participating in the trip, agrees to produce considerable coverage on tourism-related aspects of Israel. A minimum of four articles is desired. Participants are free to produce non-tourism coverage in addition to their tourism-related coverage – but this coverage should not detract from the prime purpose of the trip: i.e. the furtherance of tourism to Israel. By taking the trip, participants agree not to absent themselves during the trip to seek or undertake personal or professional tasks. The Israel Ministry of Tourism and EL AL have made this trip available at considerable investment and absences from the planned itinerary will be unacceptable. Those who wish to visit with friends or family in Israel or pursue non-tourism articles, are encouraged to leave earlier for Israel and/or return later. Participants may choose to extend their trip, pre-post, based on flight availability. The routing must be between the participant’s original departure city and Tel Aviv. There will be no additional charge for this extension as long as request is made at time of reservation. All airfare is provided by EL AL Airlines. All participants must have a Passport that is valid for at least six months after the end date of the trip. Participants must pay their own transportation to one of EL AL’s three departure locations: JFK, Newark, or Los Angeles.
