Travel Insurance Information:
Travel insurance is a compulsory requirement for every foreign visitor in Saudi Arabia, helping the visitor address any emergency conveniently. However, before you buy travel insurance, do consider the following factors:

Total Cost of the Holiday or Visit:
Do consult the travel agent regarding their refund policy. An unforeseen event may lead to cancellation of your trip or holiday. If this happens, it always helps if you can get the money back.

Travel Itinerary:
You may need additional coverage if you intend to get involved in something extreme. It is a good idea to consider all the activities you will do once you are in Saudi Arabia and then apply for travel insurance.

Traveling with Family: If you are traveling to Saudi Arabia with spouse and children, the travel insurance must cover them. Therefore, it always helps to be informed before starting your journey and buy the right travel insurance package.
