I am going to Tel Aviv for ~1week and I was looking for a travel health insurance. I would prefer one that cover expenses and doesn't require reimbursement of receipts. I noticed that the two most popolar insurances for Israel (clalit and harel) don't cover road accidents. I was wondering why and if road accident are already covered by some other entity, like the state of Israel or insurance of the vehicle that was responsible for the accident. Anyone has this piece of information? Thanks

Helo,

Can you tell me are all these routes covered with night buses: Tehran - Isfahan, Isfahan - Yazd, Yazd - Kerman, Kerman - Shiraz, Shiraz - Tehran?
Also, do I need to make reservation in advance for any of them? At what time at night they usually go, and how often they go?

Thanks! :)

Does anyone know if it is possible to enter Kuwait at the airport with an Israeli stamp? I am going from Dubai to Kuwait to Bahrain back to Dubai. I have been to Dubai without issue and read that Bahrain is fine. Just wandering about Kuwait?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I plan to go from Mashdad to Ashgabat in Turkmenistan via the Loftabad-Artyk border crossing as the Bajigiran crossing seems to be closed for some time due to some issue on the Turkmen side.

Does anybody know how I can get to Loftabad by public transport from Mashdad and how long the journey takes?
Are there any facilities in Loftabad like accomodation or food options for a possible overnight stay there before crossing the next morning?
How busy is the border crossing?

Thank you for your…

Hello everyone, it has been a while since I started my research on the quality and the accessibility of mobile communication services for tourists in Iran and i guess now i can share some information to keep my fellow travelers out of trouble.
Nowadays having a reliable, stable and fast Internet access is way more important than being able to make a phone call, hands down no doubt about it.
I decided to start this topic by having a comparative prospects and note the precautions to not lose your…
