Fuel Surcharge: Occasionally the airline will charge additional fuel surcharges at the time of ticketing. If this does occur, this fee will be added to your final invoice.
Luggage (per person): We strongly recommend travelers bring only a backpack and a carryon. Bring less than you think you need. This allows more freedom and removes the risk of lost luggage and slowing the group down. For travelers who check luggage, please read on. At the present time, airlines allow one piece of luggage no more than 50 lbs. and total dimensions of no more than 61 inches without additional charges. One carry-on and a personal bag are allowed, within size limits. In Israel, your luggage will be loaded on the bus when you arrive, transferred to each of your hotels, and returned to the airport on your departure from Israel.
Deviations: Any change in the basic program will result in the charge of $150 per change per traveler plus any additional charges that may apply for revised air or land arrangements.
