Israel sells over 900 Groupon tour packages

JERUSALEM (JTA) – More than 900 discounted vacation packages to Israel have been sold through the marketing website Groupon. Some 920 eight-day tour packages had been sold for $999 each on the website as of Thursday afternoon, Oct. 29. The trips, marketed jointly with Israel’s Tourism Ministry, include flights, hotels and tours throughout the country. They have been on sale for less than a week and will remain on sale for seven more days. The offer comes amid a wave of terror that has affected tourism to Israel, the Israeli daily Yediot Acharonot reported. The package is designed “to project a sense of business as usual and encourage tourism during the months when hotel occupancies in Israel are low,” Levin said.
