Frequently Asked Questions

What type of insurance do I need?

Every client is required to make a travel insurance package.

How is the weather like in the time of travel?

Located in the Middle East bordering the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, Oman has a mainly dry desert climate with warm weather all year round. December is winter time in Oman, but although it’s relatively mild at this time of year, temperatures are still ideal for a holiday in the sun. The weather in December is much more comfortable and perfect for relaxing on the beach, swimming in the sea or lazing about by the pool.

Averages

The average temperature in the capital Muscat at this time of year’s a warm 23°C, reaching highs of 27°C. The sun’s strong all year round in this part of the world, so make sure you stay safe by applying sun cream regularly, finding shade and drinking lots of water. After dark temperatures drop as low as 19°C, ideal for evenings out. Just 10mm of rain’s expected during the month, while the seas are an inviting 25°C.

What is the accommodation like?

Accomodation will be hand selected 3-4* hotels. The price includes accommodation in a shared private double room, however, if one wishes to have a private room that sleeps (1 person) this is possible at an additional cost of  €450. 

What travel vaccines are needed?

Vaccinations are subjective – they are required like most destinations outside of Europe. Best is to check with your doctor or Health Centre.

Is it possible to arrive earlier / stay longer?

Yes, of course. As long as you are in Muscat on the trip dates, you are free to arrive / leave whenever you want. It is best to let us know your plans so we can organise transfers accordingly. 

Do I need a visa to enter Oman?

Yes, a visa is required to enter Oman which costs 20 OMR approx €50.
