All the hotels in the tour are 4 star hotels, such as the Ramada chain, which include a tasty buffet breakfast, conference facilities for our daily classrooms, & modern ammenities such as wireless wifi, etc. The exact names of the hotels will be revealed about 2 months before the tour starts, as it depends on the final number joining and availability.
How many persons in each room? Can I have a single room if travelling alone?
The base price includes sharing a room with a second person. If you would like to have a private single room, you can add 120 pounds to the price.
What time should I arrive or leave?
You can arrive any time on the first day of the tour. The first day will be a relaxing day, as people may arrive at different times due to having a later flight. Therefore, feel free to explore the beautiful beaches of Malta and absorb the atmosphere. We will have an introductory meeting at night (we will inform you about the time), but that will be optional too for those who are arriving late. The actual tour will start on the next day, so don't worry about arriving late on the first day of the tour. Your hotel room will be reserved and ready for you any time you arrive insha'Allah.
Similarly, you can any time on the last day of the tour insha'Allah.
Do you offer pick up from Malta airport?
Pick up will be arranged from Malta airport to hotel only during the first day of the tour. You will need to send us your flight details so we could arrange pick ups for the group. If you arrive a day earlier or a day later, you can still easily arrive to the hotel using either a bus (very cheap) or taxi, or a combination of both. Malta is a relatively small island and it takes a few minutes to a maximum one hour to go between any two points on the island, except during rush hour.
Can I arrive a few days earlier or remain a few days later?
Yes of course. You can extend your hotel stay on either arrival or departure.

It is permissible for sisters to travel in safe groups insha'Allah, and Alhamdulillah we will have many sisters on our tour group. This is also the opinion that is followed in Saudi Arabia during Hajj times, as women are allowed to travel in Hajj groups.
What time should I book my flight on the final day of the tour?
The final day of the tour is a free-day, therefore, feel free to book your return flights any time on the last day.

Malta is part of the schengen zone. If you are from an EU member country, or have a passport from English-speaking countries (US, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, etc), then you don't need a visa to visit Malta.
What is the best way to get the local currency?
What is your refund policy?
That being said, while we cannot make any guarantees, we will try our best to help you when it is possible, as we understand that emergencies do happen. You may be able to purchase a travel insurance if you expect a disruption to your travel plans.
