I’m writing with an update. Its really quite exciting that we have interest from folks from all over the country and, as of now, I am pretty sure we will be a “go” with the trip. If you haven’t made your reservation commitment I urge you to do so soon, if possible by the end of October so that we have a better count of who is definitely coming with us.
Some of you have had questions regarding the trip and arrangements, some of which I will try to answer here.
1) If you are traveling alone and want to be paired with someone in a room, although the tour company doesn’t arrange this, I will be glad to share email addresses of those who give me permission so that some of you can find each other and decide if you want to be roommates. I know some people prefer to pay the supplement and have their own rooms.
2) You WILL be met at the airport in Israel and transported to the hotel in Tel Aviv. If you make your flight reservations through ARZAWorld they will have your information. If you do your own flight arrangements, please let them or me know your flights and times.
3) The starting date is March 6. This is the day you leave the U.S. March 7 is the actual starting date of the tour in Israel. Some of you might be traveling earlier to stop in Europe or just get to Israel earlier. Please remember that the group begins its tour on the 7th in Tel Aviv, and let us know if you will not be coming directly from the U.S.
4) As someone who is also a member of the Senior citizen category and has traveled quite a bit, I strongly urge you to take out travel insurance, including insurance that covers your airfare. ARZAWorld works with Traveland, a travel and insurance group, and will recommend them to you for your insurance. If you want to comparison shop, Travelguard and Allianz are two other reputable companies you can find on the web.
Please feel free to contact me, by email with any further questions. If you have any friends who are interested, I’ll be glad to talk to them as well. I look forward to hearing from you and to traveling with you to Israel this coming March.
