Israel offers week long vacations from the US for $1000

 

Due to the current wave of Palestinian terror, Israel teams up with Groupon offering Americans a week-long vacation in Israel during months of January & February 2016, starting at $990 – including flights, hotel, meals & tours.

As Israel experiences a further slowdown in incoming tourism following the recent wave of terror, the Tourism Ministry is launching a unique collaboration with the global Groupon company which it hopes will bring thousands of tourists to the country. 

The deal, which is being marketed to some 30 million households in the United States starting Tuesday, offers a vacation in Israel for $990-1,400 – including flights, seven nights in a hotel, meals, tours and more.

“Some 1,500 Israel vacation packages will be offered for special prices, in accordance with the hotel’s level. This is a first-rate marketing move which some 30 million US households will be exposed to. It will open an extensive marketing channel for us and expose us to audiences which are usually completely unfamiliar with Israel.” 

Minister Levin added that while the ministry usually halts all its campaigns during times of crisis, he decided to proceed as usual. “The continued marketing activity is aimed at preserving incoming tourism and creating a faster exit route once the security problem is behind us. So far, it has been proving itself. There have hardly been any cancellations so far, and despite the slowdown in reservations, we are not witnessing a terrible crisis or something people should change their habits for. 

“When you shout, ‘Crisis, crisis,’ it only intensifies the external crisis and makes people hesitate whether to come to Israel. When they see that we keep marketing Israel as usual, it projects business as usual.” 

According to Levin, if the campaign is successful the ministry will consider expanding it. 

The campaign will be offered for two weeks starting Tuesday and will include vacation packages with hotels in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and the Sea of Galilee area. All packages will be marketed for the winter season, for the months of January and February 2016.

    I cannot find the deal online. This looks like a lot of nonsense

    • The article says: “The deal, which is being marketed to some 30 million households in the United States starting Tuesday”.

      It may have a specific ‘market’ site, maybe through targeted cities or communities.

      Just because you can’t find the information, does not mean it’s nonsense.

  11. I don’t have any more information than what’s in the article. I suggest checking ‘Groupon’ until the information becomes available.

    The tours are here, you should know they are using Turkish Airlines, at least one of the tours includes a change of planes in Istanbul. As a Jewish American woman I have security problems with that. https://www.groupon.com/deals/ga-gate-1-travel-israel-2?utm_source=rvs&utm_medium=afl&utm_campaign=4092253#
