BIRTHRIGHT ISRAEL PLUS

Extend Your Adventure


If, while you are in Israel on your TAGLIT trip, you decide that you would like to stay longer than the original or extended date, you must call the airline to cancel your return and book a new return date. You must contact the airline BEFORE your confirmed return date. All changes to your ticket are subject to seat availability with the airline in the same class code/airfare category. If you do not contact the airline prior to the confirmed return date to arrange another flight home, you risk having your return ticket cancelled being "NULL and VOID," and you may have to purchase a one-way ticket to return home at your expense.

To change your return date once in Israel, the airline will need to know your preference of dates (you should have more than one choice of dates, as seats are limited), complete credit card details, a local telephone number in Israel and an email address to process your request. Having the required information prior to calling will help expedite your request.
