All participants of Birthright Israel are able to apply for a trip extension. This can be done either in the US before the trip leaves or in Israel during the trip.

Extending Before the trip:

Participants can extend their trip in the US by contacting our travel agency, Gil Travel. There is a fee to extend, which will be arranged when contacting the agency. We advise you to make the arrangements before departure in order to ensure you receive your preferred return date.

Extending In Israel:

It is possible to extend your trip after you arrive in Israel by contacting the airline directly.


The airline will ask to provide a PNR code. The PNR is listed among the details of your flight information.
