   Return to "Frequently Asked Questions" Menu

What type of currency is used?

Shekels in Israel, Pounds in Egypt, Dinars in Jordan.

However, there is no need to change your currency at the banks, as you can pay in dollars almost everywhere.  US currency is widely accepted. We suggest to take a good supply of small bills - 1s, 5s. You will need small change which you can use for smaller items.

Most places also accept traveler's checks, major credit cards and personal checks with adequate identification.  There are also many ATM machines dispensing U.S. dollars.

What about travelers checks and credit cards?

We do not recommend the use of travelers checks as you may experience difficulty using and/or cashing them. In addition, banks usually charge a significant handling fee when cashing travelers checks. Credit cards can be used for most purchases.

How is tipping handled on this trip?

All tipping is already paid by members during Registration. There is no need to tip beyond this. It is not necessary to tip the Guide, the bus driver, porters, the  restaurant staff when group meals are provided, nor to tip the hotel staff.

All tips will be distributed by our company.
