I got many phone calls about cell phone rentals & flight extensions so here is the information Mayanot sent all the participants... I highly recommend renting a cell phone. The phones will be delivered to our bus upon arrival and picked up before we leave.
Flight Extensions: For information on how to extend your plane ticket following the end of the trip please visit http://www.mayanotisrael.com/extensions.asp and scroll down for your airline. Flight extensions should be reserved as soon as possible since availability decreases daily.
Should you choose to extend your stay in Israel following the conclusion of the program neither Mayanot nor Taglit – Birthright Israel bear any responsibility for your actions, safety or welfare. The extended ticket is yours, and your responsibility, and Mayanot and Taglit – Birthright Israel bear no responsibility for any issues with extended tickets such as delays, cancellations, lost baggage etc. We highly recommend all participants take out extensive travel insurance, and make sure to extend the insurance if you extend your trip.
