Traveling safe to Saudi Arabia: should you take a travel insurance?

Do you really need a travel insurance? Just before you start designing your travel to Saudi Arabia take a few moments to find information on the customs of this country

In Saudi Arabia crime has steadily increased over recent years, but remains at levels below most major metropolitan areas in the Western countries. Visitors should take precautions to reduce their risk of becoming victims of crime. Individuals should be aware of their surroundings and keep valuables out of sight and secure. Items of value should not be left in plain view in vehicles. It is advisable to travel with a companion, if possible. Private Saudi citizens who perceive that a foreigner is not observing conservative standards of conduct have been known to harass, pursue, or assault that person. Many Embassies in Riyadh cautions travelers that Saudi Arabian police authorities have detained potential witnesses to crimes without charges or access to legal counsel, and with limited or delayed consular access, during the investigative stage of criminal cases, which can take months. On occasion, Saudi authorities have temporarily confiscated the personal effects of detained potential witnesses. Even when released from detention, witnesses to criminal incidents may be prohibited from leaving the country until investigation of the incident is complete.
