Health insurance and medical care while traveling are completely your own responsibility. Of course our tour leader will be strongly supporting in case of any need but because of legal reasons he is prohibited from administering any type of drug. His help will be only in the limits of his job and knowledge. Local doctors will be reachable all the time during your trip but still we highly recommend asking your travel doctor for up to date medical travel information before going for your vacation. Please note that inoculations against typhoid, tetanus, infectious hepatitis and polio might be required for the country visited but only at the advice of your doctor. Some of our trips travel into areas away from medical facilities and that is why we recommend you to carry a First Aid kit and hand sanitizers / antibacterial wipes and of course a full supply of any personal medical requirements because you might be unable to find the same drugs as you get at home.
When selecting your trip please carefully read the brochure and itinerary and assess your ability to cope with our style of travel. For travellers over 70 years a completed Medical Form is required. The most common sickness during traveling into Middle East countries is dairrhea, that for we recommend using only mineral water (Tap water might be the main cause of dairrhea) not only for drinking but also for teeth brushing. 3 litters of mineral water per day (especially in summer months) are the minimum average and it is much better if it is mixed with some lemon juice. Clean places for eating play a major roll to avoid dairrhea also avoiding all kind of uncooked food is highly recommended.
