Travel Insurance Information

We recommend purchasing travel insurance immediately upon booking your pilgrimage, this way you are covered for any unforeseen illness or injury that might cause you to cancel your trip. Even if Airline tickets have not been issued, or the Airline is yet unknown, insurance can still be purchased and the airline can be listed as “unknown” on the insurance application. See the links below.  Insurance is required by the State of Israel and any of the three options below will satisfy their requirements.

Why is travel insurance so important for a pilgrimage?

In today’s changing travel environment, it’s important to protect your travel investment so you can relax and enjoy your pilgrimage tour. Unforeseen events such as flight delays, baggage loss, or sudden sickness or injury could impact your travel plans. We recommend purchasing travel insurance at your earliest opportunity.  For your convenience, we offer a Travelex Insurance Services protection plan to help protect you and your travel investment against the unexpected.
