Thinking about going to Jordan?
If you are lucky enough to be planning a trip to Jordan, make sure you have the right travel insurance cover in place. Think about:
- The cost of your holiday – Of course you don't want to cancel, but sometimes things happen that mean you have to, it's reassuring to know that you are able to cover costs
- Think about the activities that you'll be doing while you are there - We cover over 50 adventure activities as standard, but if you're planning anything more extreme, we can offer you extra cover. Just give us a call on the number at the top of the page
- The cost of your baggage

Did you know that...?
- There is such a thing as being too nice when you're in Jordan. Saying you really like something in your host's home will make them feel obliged to offer it to you just to demonstrate how generous they are. (Unless that's what you intended!)
- Jordanians love their Queen Rania, who happens to have been rated the most beautiful consort or first lady in the world. As well as doing good, she writes children's books - one about a peanut butter and jam sandwich topped the charts in May 2010.
- A popular beverage in Jordan is shaneeneh; a cold drink made from salty goat yoghurt. It might not sound particularly appealing to our westernised tastes but it is said to be incredibly refreshing on a hot summer’s day.
- The Dead Sea in Jordan is not entirely dead. The high salt content of the lake prevents all but the tiniest bacteria and microbes from surviving. After a flood the salt content dips and the lake turns bright scarlet from algae and red microorganisms.
- The ancient desert city of Petra, Jordan's most famous sight, would never have existed if it wasn't for waterproof cement. By building channels, dams and secret cisterns lined with the cement, water could be moved and stored for 20,000 inhabitants!
- When it comes to the internet, the Jordanians do like to get stuck in. Three-quarters of all online content written in Arabic originates from Jordan, although the country has less than 2 per cent of the Arab population.
- A huge tray called a "mansaf" gives its name to a Jordanian speciality of mounds of rice topped off with lamb and fermented yoghurt. The larger the pile of lamb the more generous the host is deemed - a stuffed whole-roast baby lamb scores big!
