Questions and Answers

Q: Is the tour for Muslims only?

A: The tour is open to everyone. We think Halal Tourism is for everyone. In fact, we believe it is for everyone, irrespective of religious persuasion. Have you seen people of other faiths eating from the Halal table at corporate events? I am sure most have. Halal is much more than a permissible meal. It includes the prohibition of pork and alcohol. Halal prescribes for animals to be slaughtered in a humane and ethical manner, in a clean environment. Halal is undoubtably an obligation for Muslims. But many people of other faiths have no issue with Halal. For this reason, we believe that Halal Tourism appeals to people of other faiths too. The Halal meals, the exotic tastes, the alcohol-free environment, the conservative lifestyle… these appeal to people from all walks of life.

Q: Do you make provision for single ladies on the tour?

A: Single ladies are more than welcome. In fact, most of our ex-travellers were single women. Where possible, we arrange for single ladies to share twin or triple rooms to keep costs down. In our experience, single ladies grouped together forge close ties during the tour and leave for home as close friends.

Q: Are senior citizens allowed to join the tour?

A: Our more matured traveller is not only welcome but is encouraged to join the tour. All our tours are specially designed not to be too strenuous on the not-too-young-at-heart. Furthermore, we allow more than enough time and space during tours and programmes for everyone to keep up with the pace. People of all ages and welcome to join the tour, including infants and children.

Q: When do bookings open, and close? Will you accept late bookings?

A: Bookings are open and closes on 15 September 2022.

Q: Do I have to pay in full to secure my booking?

A: No. We only require a per-person deposit of R15,000 to hold your booking. This deposit will be applied towards the cost of your package. You may pay the balance in instalments but the full balance must be paid by 30 September 2022.

Q: Can I stay longer in Turkey on my own?

A: Yes. You are allowed to return home at a later date, subject to the additional costs for the flight change, extra accommodation, airport transfer and private tour costs. Let us know and we will gladly quote you for the additional stay.

Q: What sort of travel insurance would you recommend?

A: It’s always important to stay safe whilst travelling, and travel insurance provides a security in case something goes wrong whilst travelling. As the saying goes: “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” We would recommend a discounted group travel insurance policy or a comprehensive individual policy that caters for your individual needs.
