Traveling with friends is a great way to enrich your Israel Outdoors experience!
You’ll be on a journey with someone you know, someone who already gets your jokes, knows what you like to eat, someone who won’t mind posing in your photos over and over and over again. The first step in traveling with friends is making sure they travel with us! If you have friends who you think should claim their Birthright Israel gift, tag them using our quick online form today!
Choose Israel Outdoors
We can only place you on a trip with friends if they also register with Israel Outdoors as their Birthright Israel trip organizer. Make a plan with your friends to select “Israel Outdoors” as part of Sign-Up and also when it comes time to complete the full primary application!
Tag Your Buddy Requests
If you have any travel companion requests, let us know in your Secondary Application. As part of that form, you can search for friends who also registered and tag them as travel buddy requests! If you don’t see them listed, it means they probably didn’t sign up for Israel Outdoors –make sure they fix that!
Sync Your Trip Choices
In the Secondary Application, you’ll be able to view and rank all trips you are willing to join. Make sure that you and your friends rank the same exact trips in the same exact preference order. This will really help us help match you together on the same trip with your friends.
Travel with Mixed Age Friends
Trips are primarily divided into age 18—22, 22—26 and 27—32 groupings. However, we know many people want to travel with friends in different age ranges. In these cases, we are always happy to make exceptions. When selecting your trips, choose trip dates in the age range of your choice.
No worries! Most Israel Outdoors participants don’t know any of their fellow travelers beforehand! This trip is an amazing opportunity to connect with interesting new people and forge new and lasting friendships with a diverse group of travelers.
