You need proof of travel, such as a booked plane ticket or confirmed travel itinerary. So that won't work.

United EWR to TLV is 85K points or around 930 dollars.
I need special permission to get in (birh of grandkid exception).
I also need permission from work from Israel while being quarantined.
Would you use points which have 125 redeposit fee or get a 1 year credit of fare?

Up In The Air / Re: Air Serbia $275 NYC-TLV

First I paid with Chase Sapphire and booked via their portal. I think I called the chase 'benefits' and got transferred to t\rave,Maybe they transferred me to a supervisor instead of an offshore service center. This person even said they were handling lots of 'El Al' refunds. Good luck to you all.

I called Chase travel today and got a refund.  The trip was on Air Serbia to TLV on9/21. You just need to get the right representative who knows what to do. Maybe asking for a supervisor will help or just try again. Called around 5 PM EST.

I spent two days in Rome. I landed 8AM and the next day had a 6:30 pm train to catch. In Paris and Rome many museums are closed on Monday.

I took the Leonardo Express from the airport to Rome main train station. My credit card did not work in the machine. I went to the ticket counter to pay for the train but I was aslo able to get a 24 hour  train/bus pass to use in Rome. I walked a lot but when I was tired I took the bus back to the area near the hotel. The hotel was St Regis. I got the room around 10:30AM which was real nice after a long plane ride.

I did the underground tour at the Coliseum booked on the official website. The tour was ok. You do skip the security line and enter the other entrance which has a short line. I had to pick up my ticket. Make sure to go to the shorter line and not the longer line for people buying same day tickets.  You cannot start to use your ticket till after the tour. I was early and went to Palatine hill. My ticket did not work; but the person was nice and let me in. After I took a taxi ride using mytaxi app for 10EUR to the Jewish ghetto to tour it with David at 2 pm. He is expensive but he does know his history. The shul and its museum were impressive. For winter tours the museum closes at 5 so we were rushed. Other people could go back to the museum tomorrow, but I had a train to catch that evening. One thing he did tell us is that the water fountains are safe to drink from.

I recommend Alice pizza and Alice pizza again and again for price and taste.

Only allowed a carry on bag. I want to bring tuna in a pouch and Amazing Meal from Meal Mart. Would these be allowed to go through?

Food questions:

http://www.agriculture.gov.au/travelling/bringing-mailing-goods
Looks like Meal Mart microwavable meat meals are out but maybe the salmon is allowed. Looks like pouched tuna is fine.

Also looking for a place near St Kilda to fill up for 3-4 days on the road. Any recommendations?
Doing GOR and if have time the grampions.

Also can I buy meat in Sydney and take it on a plane to Melbourne?

According to a link in a thread it was mentioned Melbourne arcades and Victoria Market.
>> This is one large and interesting market. Yes, they do have food, but the main part is not food at all. Itís a great place for souvenir shopping and just looking around.
