Emergency Hotlines and Procedures
Our Emergency Procedures are put in place as soon as we land in Saudia. Please familiar yourself with the following rules which are applicable for Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, English is not well spoken by the Locals, and many streets do not have names. Every year, thousands of pilgrims do get lost or displaced. Many are disoriented and cannot find their way back to the hotels.
- Do not separate yourself from the Group without first asking permission, OR let someone know where you will be.
- Always follow directions from your Group Leader, even if you think you know better. Please do not argue with the professional Group Leader who knows what he is doing.
- Always wear your ID badges which are provided for your safety and comfort. Try to memorize the telephone numbers on your ID badges.
- In case you get lost or separated from the Group, please call the special emergency numbers listed on your ID badges. We will duplicate the numbers at the end of this memo.
- Our trained staff will come to your assistance within the hour and will bring you back to your hotel. In Makkah, our hotel Rehan Marwa is in the direction of DOOR # 01 of the Grand Mosque, for HAJJ.
- At least try to know the nearest DOOR EXIT of the Grand Mosque in the direction of your hotel. You must memorize the DOOR EXIT number. It will save you plenty of headache and problems. There are 95 doors or gates of the Great Mosque numbered in an anti-clockwise direction.
