REGULAR FAQ FOR TRAVELING TO IRAN

The single supplement refers to a travel industry premium surcharged to solo travelers to compensate for a hotel for losses incurred because only one person is staying in a room. Our tour prices are calculated based on the standard-room charge that is divided between two persons sharing a twin or double room during the tour. If a solo traveler prefers to stay in their own hotel room, the single supplement is then an additional charge to cover the full cost of the room. Please bear in mind that paying the price of a room's single supplement reserves the right to occupy a single room alone, without any room sharing. In some cases, the rooms available are of the same size as a double/twin room, but in some rare cases, they may be smaller. Kindly check the amount of single supplement for every Iran trip that you intend to join!

In Iran, the usual dress code of the country must be observed. You should dress in a way that does not violate the cultural customs of the host country, because you are going to find out an Islamic state. All-female travelers must dress in public according to the Islamic rules in force in Iran. A headscarf and a coat reaching over the knees are obligatory for the women already upon entry to the country. The scarf does not necessarily have to cover the entire head and can have on pattern shapes and different colors. This includes clothing that is remote from the body, covering the body, e.g., a long, non-tailored coat in subtle colors, including long trousers or opaque stockings, or long trousers with a long-sleeved blouse. A woman who is traveling is best off with closed shoes, even if sandals are accepted. Make-up should only be applied discreetly. This must be worn in combination with opaque stockings or better with trousers. Men should wear long pants, but short shirts/T-shirts are no problem at all.

We at Irangard travel can provide you with comprehensive travel insurance that is adequately tailored for your Iran trip and is specially designed to include all the activities listed in the itinerary.
