El Al Airlines Offers Free Phone with Flight to Israel
Not having a cell phone can be a serious handicap when visiting a foreign county, especially if you're connecting with international friends or find yourself in need of making an emergency call. El Al Airlines is alleviating this headache of a hang-up by offering free phones for US travelers to Israel this spring, in hopes of boosting air travel to the holy land.
The national Israel airline is giving away complementary Motorola RAZR V3 phones to 1,000 passengers with round-trip flights to the country through June 30, 2010, according to Jaunted.com. The Motorola phones come preloaded with sixty free minutes for outgoing calls and there's no charge for local incoming calls. For added convenience, passengers can choose where they would like their phone delivered. And best of all, when it's time to fly home, you can keep your new Motorola (and local number) in case you ever travel to Israel again.
Only El Al Airlines passengers with round-trip tickets from US cities to Israel are eligible for the "free phone" promotion. Once a passenger purchases their ticket, they will receive a code with which they must register through the El Al rent-a-phone website. The offer is limited to the first 1,000 passengers who take advantage of the promotion, so act fast if you've already booked your El Al ticket or have Israel on your travel agenda for this spring or early summer.
