I have never had issues.
They always call my Israeli number to confirm someone is home and If no one is, I have them leave it in the Miklat.

I tried to go on 1/1 and the airport desk staff told me 12/31 was their last day :( There were still drinks in the fridge and everything. I'm not sure if maybe they were just closed for New Year's or what but pretty big loss for TLV. There will be always be Dan...
I was there 12/22 and they didn't say anything.
Also still live on PP.
Maybe you misunderstood?

Trip Reports / Re: A little different Maldives TR
« on: December 19, 2019, 10:03:53 PM »
There are nice beach villas in thousands of places.
There are nice OWBs in a small handful of places.
So what? The fact that it is rarer doesn't make it better.
At the end of the day what do you get from an OWB that you don't get from a beach Villa that makes it worth a couple hundred dollars extra per night?
We stayed in an OWB with a private pool and it was very nice but I think the beach Villa with pool would be nicer.

Ah! I just read your trip report again and can't help feeling my hart strings pulling me back to the Maldives.
The only thing I still don't get even after staying in one is the big deal people make out of the OWB.
I think a nice villa on the beach with a private pool is just as good and you get the bonus of sand which can be very fun.

Jig is up. You'd better find a new hiding place  :P
There's always the fuse box. They can place the package next to the house keys  ;D

That's because I have 2 more orders on the way, and I'm trying to solve the issue long term. I would otherwise have picked it up. I just want Amazon to see, that the post office isn't an option for me.
If you didn't receive a message to choose a pick up point, I'm betting you don't have an Israeli number on your orders.
What happens is that the delivery comes around 10 AM to 2 PM (because who wouldn't be home at that time???) and if you don't answer the door or your phone, they just send it back or drop it off by the doar.

I got another delivery today and the delivery guy already knew where to hide my package since he's been here before.
I already answer his call with "Shalom Yigal" and he replies: "You have a  box in your Miklat".

In any case this free shipping is great! I got my stuff about 4 days after I ordered them. Compare that to Shufersal online (Israeli retailer) where I just got my electric scooter that I ordered three weeks ago and promised "7 day delivery".

Anyone have the number of the carrier.
Itís quite crazy if your not home they just say the customer refused delivery and they send it back! happened to me 3 times already.
Any one else had such experience?
They always come at terrible hours.
The delivery guy calls me and I instruct him to hide the package under the building stairs.

Up In The Air / Re: Hidden City Ticketing

Wondering how come the following hidden scenario won't work:
I book with a TA - LGA ORD MIA; ORD - MIA is the hidden city. After I fly LGA - ORD; I ask my TA to remove the MIA leg. Is there anything wrong with doing that, can the TA be fined for it?
You can't just decide to remove the last segment. The ticket has to be reissued and the change fee payed.

Who needs it? With the fast train to TLV it would not make sense.....Now from Haifa the HFA makes a ton of sense given the distance to TLV.
Getting to the train with luggage is a pain and there is no parking.

DDF:

Israel: 6.1%
Canada: 2%
Based on IP's? Some people use VPN's and such so that could skew the results in favor of the U.S
