About us

Where It All Began

"I was bitten by the travel bug at a very young age so it is no wonder that the Travel Industry is where my professional life took me. I wanted to take the family away for Pesach one year and found myself bombarded with lots of advertising and too much ambiguity. It was so hard to distinguish from the different programmes and services on offer and to know that the holiday I chose would truly fulfil everything I hoped it would. I decided to do something about it. "

Imagine if there was a TripAdvisor for Kosher Tour Operators?!

Zehavah started out in 1998, advising and selling Kosher-for-Passover holidays, from different tour operators, in Israel. In 2000, after increased demand, this was expanded to include Pesach holidays throughout Europe and then in 2003 to encompass the World. It became clear that people really want to hear from an independent source, so in 2004 Hotels Direct began selling Summer and Winter Kosher vacations and then added Succot and Shavuot. In 2009 Kosher Cruises and Kosher Tours were added to the portfolio.

What Makes Us Unique

Our sole aim is to make sure you have the best possible holiday! To do that, we will chat on the phone or through email about what it is you are looking for in a Kosher holiday – including any holiday wishes and personal requirements – and we will help you choose and book the right option for you. It helps to have somebody to talk to.

As we have been doing this a while, we have a relationship with the Kosher tour operators, as well as lots of feedback from our customers’ experiences at different resorts. We use this feedback and experience to help you understand your choices better. We are completely independent and our advice is tailor-made for you, your own Personal Concierge! What better for peace of mind right through the choosing and booking process?

The best part of the service is that it comes to you completely free of charge! Our rates are extremely competitive as you pay no commission.

Hotels Direct (London) LTD is really your one-stop-kosher-holiday-shop! Be in touch with just one person for unbiased information on what is on offer, have your booking and personal requests seen to and start relaxing before you even reach the airport!
