Extend Your Trip
Looking to Extend your trip?

Birthright Israel participants leaving on Canadian departures have the option of extending their ticket to remain in Israel beyond the program for a fee depending on the airline.  Only those who have been assigned to a trip will be able to make a request for a flight extension.  Please realize that extensions are not guaranteed and every airline has their own restrictions. You may have to be flexible with your dates, and this is why we urge participants to make the extension in advance of their trip departure.

Please note that once the Birthright Israel program has concluded you will no longer be under our supervision or the responsibility of Birthright Israel.  All return flights must be direct from Tel Aviv; stopovers are not permitted on your Birthright Israel ticket.

If you need to cancel your Tel Aviv – Toronto/Montreal return flight, please notify the National office prior to your departure date. Failure to notify Canada Israel Experience will result in the forfeit of your US$250 deposit.

Please make note of the airline you are traveling with, as each airline has their own regulations. This  information can be found at www.cieregistration.com under “Bus Info”.  

Air Canada

Please remember that our agents at Air Canada are stationed in Tel Aviv, Israel and are 7 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time.  Air Canada agents in Canada will not be able to assist you with a flight extension. Please allow for a minimum of 2-3 business days for a response to your email.  Sending additional e-mails only delays the agents further.

Please note that Canada Israel Experience is not responsible for fees forfeited if you need to change or cancel your extension request with Air Canada.

El Al Israel Airlines

Please note that Canada Israel Experience is not responsible for fees forfeited if you need to change or cancel your extension request with El Al.

Austrian Airlines:

Please note that Canada Israel Experience is not responsible for fees forfeited if you need to change or cancel your extension request with Austrian Airlines.

IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL YOUR RETURN FLIGHT HOME

If you are not extending your trip, and you would like to arrange your own travel plans back to Toronto, please email our office indicating that you would like to cancel your return flight. This only applies to participants who are purchasing their one-way travel from Tel Aviv back to Toronto/Montreal.

The airlines require this notice at least 72 hours before your last day of the trip. For example, if your last day of the CIE trip is May 10th, you must notify our office by May 7th. If you fail to notify us within 72 hours of your last day, you run the risk of losing your US$250 deposit.
