FAQ for 2402 Crossway Bible Study Tour.

Can I get a single room?

Yes, there are a limited number of single rooms available. However, there is a single supplement fee of $1100 required for a single room.

What is the difference between a full package and a ground-only package?

The only difference between the two is that the full-package provides group airfare while the ground-only package requires the participant to provide his/her own flight arrangements. This difference is reflected in the price.

If I am flying with the group, can I upgrade my ticket or confirm specific seats on my flights?

It may possible to upgrade to extra legroom seats, but only if such seats are available. The cost for upgrading a seat depends on the particular seat selected and will be provided at the time of booking.

Can Discipleship Travel LLC help me make my own flight arrangements?

If you want to purchase your own flight Discipleship Travel LLC can certainly help you with those arrangements. Please contact Craig Dunning via email.

If you want to use miles to obtain your own flight, you must deal directly with your airline’s reward department.

When should I purchase airline tickets?

In order to avoid penalties and fees imposed by the airlines should changes occur, Discipleship Travel LLC recommends waiting to purchase  airfare until the minimum number of participants (15) have registered for this tour. Discipleship Travel LLC will notify all ground-only participants when minimum participation has been reached. Participants who do not participate in the group airfare arrangements bear all financial responsibilities related to providing their own airfare, and Discipleship Travel LLC is not responsible, nor will Discipleship Travel LLC reimburse such participants for any losses they incur should the group become unviable for any reason.

What should I keep in mind if I make my own flight arrangements?

The most important consideration is that you must coordinate your arrival and departure with those of the group. You must be at the airport to meet the group at the designated time of arrival. The bus will not wait for you to arrive. This may mean that you have to arrive in Israel a day earlier than the group or arrange your own transportation to meet up with the group. In that case, Discipleship Travel LLC can help you reserve a hotel room, but you will be responsible for the extra costs involved. Likewise, if you do not transfer to the airport with the group for your departure flight, you will be responsible for all extra costs related to staying longer in Israel and/or getting to the airport.

When should I arrive into Tel Aviv?

The group is scheduled to arrive at 9:55 PM on September 18, 2024. Ground-only participants should make arrangeements to meet the group at Ben Gurion Airport at that time. The bus will not wait for late-arrivals. If anyone misses the bus, they will be responsible for any costs related to meeting the group.

When should I depart from Tel Aviv?

This group is scheduled to depart at 8:25AM on September 28, 2024. Ground-only participants are welcome to ride the bus to the airport or they may make their own transfer arrangements at their own cost. Hotel rooms will be available until 10:00AM on September 28, 2024.

What is the baggage allowance?

Participants are allowed one (1) checked bag and one carry-on at no additional cost. The checked bag may weigh up to 50 pounds and measure 62 inches (L+W+D). The carry-on can measure up to 45 inches (L+W+D). Baggage restrictions can vary by airline. Therefore, it is important to verify the specific airline’s baggage regulations before you get to the airport.

What are our accomodations*?

  • Netanya (1 night)
  • Nazareth (3 nights)
  • Dead Sea (1 night)
  • Jerusalem (6 nights)
  • *Hotels are subject to change without notice

What is the Cancellation Policy for this tour?

To review the Cancellation Policy for this tour, please go to the cancellations policy tab above. Also, see the terms and conditions tab.

Are tips included?

All tips and taxes are included. A generous tip for drivers, guides, and hotel servers is included in the tour price, but if you appreciate the service provided you are certainly welcome to leave an additional tip on the table or add to the amount provided for the guide and driver at the end of the trip.

What out-of-pocket expenses should I expect?

Lunches will be approximately $20-23 each day. Soft drinks and ice cream cost about $3 each. Bottled water is $1-3, and will be available on the bus each day. You can spend from $1 to thousands on souvenirs and collectibles. If you are interested in visiting the diamond factory, please inform your guide so that he can make arrangements.

How much walking will we be doing?

The average day includes approximately 3-5 miles of walking. This is not done in a single walk; rather it is done in small increments throughout the day, and you will have opportunities to rest along the way. Please begin preparing for this element of the tour now. Start by doing small walks, then slowly build up your distance. Also, include some inclines (hills or stairs) in your routine.
