Is it safe?
While the country remains unstable, it is safe to travel. You will be escorted by a tourist police officer and monitored closely. Libya is very concerned about tourists and so they are doing everything they can to keep people safe! You will likely not feel unsafe at all during your visit.
Can women travel?
Yes, absolutely! Whether in a couple or single or in a group, female travellers are welcome in Libya and the country is safe for females to travel in.
Can I pay by card?
No you can’t. You must bring in all your money in cash. USD or Euros are very easy to exchange to Dinars and exchange shops are easy to find.
Can I go if I have been to Israel?
If your passport shows evidence of travel to Israel, you cannot travel to Libya. This of course includes Israeli visa stamps, however it includes a lot more than that too. Stamps from the land borders at Egypt and Jordan might be picked up on, or even entry or exit stamps from other countries such as Northern Cyprus that don’t have matching entry or exit stamps from another country. And of course the security stickers that are placed on your passport by Israeli immigration.
Is it expensive?
Largely no, Libya is a fairly cheap country with most meals looking to set you back around USD 5-10. Souvenirs are very cheap as well unless you plan on buying older style antiques. The main expense comes from the tour itself, as everything is booked officially through the government and especially the security precautions do not come cheap.
What happens if fighting breaks out while we're there?
In the unlikely event that conflict breaks out while we are in the country, we will get the first flight out or drive to Tunisia, which is visa free for many passports. We are constantly monitoring the situation while on the ground and we have people constantly watching over us to avoid such situations.
