Extend Your Trip
Looking to Extend your trip?

Birthright Israel participants leaving on Canadian departures have the option of extending their ticket by either registering for a Birthright Israel Plus program or explore Israel, or other countries on their own for a fee depending on the airline (see below). 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.

Please make note of the airline you are travelling with, as each airline has their own regulations. 


If you are not extending your trip in Israel, and you would like to arrange your own travel plans back to Toronto/Montreal complete the request form below indicating that you would like to cancel your return flight.

This only applies to participants who are purchasing their one-way travel back to Canada. For example, if you are traveling to another country and are coming home from another country after your Birthright Israel Trip ends.

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 20th, you must notify our office by May 17th. If you fail to notify us within 72 hours of your last day, you run the risk of losing your $300 deposit.

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.
