In addition, the Israeli government may require COVID19-related documentation and testing (currently no testing or documentation is required).
TRAVEL AND MEDICAL INSURANCE
We strongly advise you to purchase travel cancellation insurance for your trip to Israel. The purpose of travel insurance is to cover your expenses in case of cancellation due to unforeseen health emergencies or other issues (depending on the type of policy purchased). In addition, please check that your medical insurance (mandatory) covers you while you are in Israel. ICB Tours shall not be liable or responsible for any injury, sickness, loss or damage to any person or property cause by natural disasters, pandemics, strikes, civil disturbances or other factors over which the company has no control and cannot influence to change them. ICB Tours offers no coverage or compensation of any kind in cases stated above, nor for cancellations or inability to travel.
Travelling in Israel requires each participant to be in good health and able to walk, as many sites are unfortunately not accessible to people in wheelchairs or those who have difficulty walking. If there are any issues pertaining to your health or physical fitness, we ask that you consult with us prior to registration.
