RESCHEDULE YOUR RETURN FLIGHT
The following information is for participants who are not joining Birthright Israel Plus.
The travel agency handling extensions from the US/Canada prior to departure is Gil Travel. They require at least 15 business days prior to your departure date to process your request. If you do not extend your return date prior to leaving the US/Canada (exceptions noted below) the airlines may be able to assist you once you have arrived in Israel.
Extensions are NOT guaranteed. It is NOT recommended that you make post-trip plans until you have a confirmed return date from Israel. All requests should be submitted to the airlines more than 72 hours before the group’s return date. Check with your Trip Organizer for specific extension details for the airline with which you are traveling, as other restrictions may apply.
Contact Gil Travel
If you will not be using your return ticket to US/Canada, you must inform your Trip Organizer immediately. This will prevent additional airline charges. If you do not contact the airline before your scheduled return date and neglect to arrive for the scheduled departure you will forfeit your deposit held for your trip.
