A Wonderful Tour to Israel & Jordan

Led by Ian & Ruth Coffey

Monday 10th - Thursday 20th February 2020

It’s hard to put into words the experience of visiting the Holy Land!

First timers and seasoned visitors agree, it’s an opportunity not to be missed, and a holiday of a lifetime.

In 2020 our itinerary takes us to Jordan as well as Israel as we visit key sites mentioned in the Bible.

In addition to the guided tours each day, we give space for personal reflection and times of fellowship as a group. Whether you are a solo traveller or part of a group, we look forward to welcoming you.

Best wishes

Ian and Ruth Coffey

A visa is required for British Passport holders visiting Jordan but not for Israel and details of how to obtain this will be sent with your final invoice. At the time this brochure went to press no vaccinations or inoculations are required for travel but you may wish to consult your own doctor for advice concerning this. If you have any queries regarding the above, we will be happy to help.

Further Information And Paying The Balance
Further information will be sent to you regarding any action that may be required approximately 10 weeks before departure. A final invoice will also be sent at this time and the balance for the tour must be paid at least 8 weeks before departure.

Travel Information
Full travel information, including details of meeting points, flight times, accommodation and travel information, will be sent to you approximately 2 weeks before departure. Normally, tickets are not issued but are handed to you at the airport or departure point by our representative who will be there to ensure that you depart without a hitch and to deal with any last minute difficulties.

Travel Insurance
It is compulsory to have travel insurance for your booking. Holiday Extras have a range of policies available at very competitive prices. You can obtain a quote online by clicking here or alternatively you can call 0871 360 2742 and quote ABTA number 93522.

Gratuities
Our normal procedure is to deal with tips on a group basis and these are included in the price. The tour leader will distribute them to the guide, driver and hotels on your behalf. Individual tipping is not recommended unless the circumstances are exceptional.

Room Check In and Check Out Times
The standard international practice is to let rooms from midday to midday. However times do vary. Check-in times are usually between 2pm and 3pm, check-out times between 11am and 12 noon on the day of departure. Therefore, if you check-in immediately after a night flight this would normally count as one night’s accommodation. Similarly if your return flight is at night you will normally be required to vacate your room at 12 noon prior to leaving for the airport. Day rooms are subject to availability/cost and should be arranged locally with the accommodation management.
