What you need to know
Change The Record
Our Palestine travel programme is a vital part of our Change The Record campaign with its call for full equal rights for everyone who calls Palestine/Israel home. This trip will include time talking through some simple ways in which participants can respond to what they have experienced and we will provide opportunities for people to explore this further once they have returned home.
We are monitoring the rules and advice on international travel closely. Likewise, we need to make the trip itinerary and logistics as Covid-secure as possible.
You will need to confirm that you have been fully vaccinated before travelling with us and fulfil all necessary Covid testing requirements that are in effect at the time of this trip.
If the travel rules and advice in place between the UK and Israel/Palestine at the end of January 2022 are so restrictive as to make group travel unviable, (i.e. extended periods of quarantine on arrival or return, or we are advised not to travel), we will postpone the trip. We will offer all participants places on a rescheduled trip.
If international travel rules or advice changes, we will contact participants immediately to notify them of any changes that we have had to make.
Amos Trust is very conscious of the environmental impact of flying. We believe that the importance of our travel programme in promoting Palestinian rights warrants these flights, and we seek to ensure that we make the best possible use of them.
We offset the carbon burnt on our trips through a tree-planting programme with our Nicaraguan partners CEPAD, and offer all participants the chance to do the same. A return flight from London Heathrow to Ben Guirion airport in Tel Aviv emits approximately 1.2 tonnes of CO2. We calculate the full carbon compensation cost for this journey to be £30.
* The dates for this trip are subject to confirmation once flights can be confirmed with airlines. Flights normally become available 11 months before thee departure date. The departure and return dates may move forwards or backwards by one or two days depending on the availability of flights.
