#17 - Israel Tourism Board

Have you wanted to sell Israel but just don't know where to begin? Or perhaps you've been selling it for years and are just looking for a bit of a refresher to what you need to know to get your clients pumped up about travelling there again. 

In this episode I'm joined by Fiona of the Israel tourism board. She walks us through many of the things that first time sellers of Israel need to know, plus some great tips for those that have been around for a while. We walk through some of the biggest misconceptions about Israel and share some great insider tips to help you be the travel pro you desire to be. 

Did you know that Israel is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts? With nearly 200 animal reserves, 200 vineyards, you can dune buggy or camp in the dessert and new archeological finds are being discovered all the time. There is ski lifts in the north and then swim in the dead sea all in the same day. Israel while known for it's religious sites - you can walk in the footsteps of the bible, it is also a very LGTBQ friendly destination. Located in the South Mediterranean, it has fabulous weather nearly all year long. It's perfect for the foodie clients and even caters nicely for the vegans and vegetarians in your database.
