Israel Travel Insurance
Israel tends to get a bad reputation as a holiday destination, because of its history of war and political conflict that many people feel makes it a dangerous place to visit. Whilst visiting some areas of the country is advised against, locations such as Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and the Dead Sea are brilliant places to explore and enjoy as you travel, as long as you bear safety advice for Israel in mind.
There aren’t many risks in Israel when it comes to health, food, water and crime; the main safety concern for travellers comes from the more frequent occurrence of terrorist attacks in the country. Some locations are at more risk of terror activity than others, but it is wise to keep up to date on Israel’s political situation before and whilst you travel so that you can avoid any potentially dangerous areas or rising conflict, wherever you are visiting.
Because of this high risk of terrorist activity, you must purchase travel insurance for your trip. Not only will this cover you in the event of a last-minute cancellation, but it will also cover the chance of loss or theft of any valuable personal belongings and gadgets whilst on your trip, offering you peace of mind.
Insurance is also important whilst visiting Israel because the country does not offer free healthcare, and in the unlikely event that you are injured either because of terrorist activity or any other incident you will need to pay for treatment upfront. With appropriate insurance, you can be assured that you will receive prompt and high-quality medical attention, which is particularly important if you are travelling with a pre-existing health condition.
