Will I Get It Back, No Matter What?

Yes, there are only three situations in which a deposit is not returned:

  • Canceling a trip within 65 days of a trip
  • Lying about eligibility. (If discovered before the trip departs, you lose the deposit. If discovered while on the trip, you lose the deposit plus you pay for the cost of the trip)
  • Serious misbehavior or violation of trip guidelines

Wait, What? You Said This Trip Was Free!

Yes, and we mean it! We cover the hotels, two meals/day, touring, activities, airfare to/from Israel and everything! We will return your deposit soon after you return form your trip.  If you don’t end up going, then we’ll return your deposit as soon as you request it back or you can roll it over for the next time you apply.

Then Why Do We Need to Submit It?

We ask you for a deposit because we want to make sure you’re committed. We are investing thousands of dollars and loads of energy, time and manpower in making this trip both possible and awesome.

Okay, I got it. Where do I submit the deposit?
