This past summer quite a few family members vacationed in Israel, some of them with young children. I remember how difficult flying from New York to Israel can be with small children, so with this in mind, I advised all of my family to book Isroyal VIP service along with their flight.
Everyone took my advice and true to form Isroyal made all the difference between leaving the airport with crying children and grumpy adults, to walking out and feeling exhilarated to be in the holy land.
Among my family flying was a whole group of siblings and their children. They were all going to the same Jerusalem location, and wanted to travel there together. I thought that this might be a problem. “Not to worry,” said Ron, owner of Isroyal.
He hired a bus to take them, and this proved to be an excellent idea. After the VIP people gathered the many suitcases and moved them out the door, the waiting bus took them to their destination. The cousins were able to sit together and the adults were able to relax and take in the scenery. Everything went very smoothly.
I couldn’t help but think back to my granddaughter’s experience last year, when she and her husband landed before Sukkot and took a ride to Jerusalem in a minivan with another couple. The driver was someone who waited at the airport to take fares to Jerusalem. He surely wasn’t a driver working for Isroyal.
When they arrived at my apartment they realized that in their excitement at being here, they had forgotten a small suitcase in the van. It contained many valuable items. We tried in vain to locate the driver and the van. Days were spent at the airport looking for him. We never found him and he never contacted us.
I spoke to my friends at Isroyal at that time and they tried to help us but, as they explained, unlike their drivers, who are responsible to them, there are many gypsy drivers and no one has their contact information.
The VIP service begins when one walks off the airplane. You are met by a VIP specialist who walks you through passport control, and then handles all the suitcases. You have just to point out the bags and they take care of the rest.
Isroyal service can be booked with just the VIP service and it can be ordered to include transportation to any place in Israel. It can also be booked a few days before departure from the U.S. or from Israel.
I have given Isroyal VIP service as a gift to family and friends, and I suggest it to anyone sending off a loved one, especially young people. You will have peace of mind knowing they are in good hands.
