A Traveler’s Check List

What Passport and Other Documentation are required?

You are responsible for obtaining the required passport and visa for the destinations you wish to visit. Your Kosher Travelers consultant can advise you on the documentation required. Still, Kosher Travelers cannot refund clients denied entry to a destination due to the lack of the necessary travel documentation.

Am I required to obtain Travel Insurance?

It is strongly advisable to have comprehensive travel insurance for all tours and hotel vacations. Taking out an appropriate private and Covid medical insurance policy is required for all Kosher Travelers participants. Our expert travel consultants will provide the exact details of the recommended insurance coverage for your holiday, or you can purchase directly online via our website.

Transfers and Embarkation

Connecting flights to cruise and tour starting points can be arranged separately or through Kosher Travelers flight consultants. We strongly suggest taking an early flight for all cruises. The ships are prompt and will not wait in port if you have a delay. Before all tours and cruises, we will be in touch with all travel requirements for all trips.

Travelling Kosher

What is the level of Kashrut Supervision?

Kosher Travelers is committed to providing Kosher food of the highest quality under strict supervision. Kashrut on hotel vacations and tours is under the direct control of the local orthodox rabbinical authorities. In countries where such supervision is not available, Kosher food is prepared under the supervision of a traveling Mashgiach with the group.

How do we observe Shabbat and Yom Tov?

  • We have a synagogue on site with Torah Readings and Shiurim
  • Total provision for Kiddush and Havdalah requirements
  • Shabbat candles are supplied to our guests
  • Shabbat elevators are available in most hotels, and provisions are made for electronic doors where possible. On most cruises we have a non-Jew operating the elevator.
