Vegetarians and people with other dietary requirements will not struggle to find dining options in the cities. Food choices in Wadi Rum, on the other hand, are very limited (including both restaurants and shops), so you may want to bring your favourite snacks with you.
This trip is all-inclusive: you will need some money for extra snacks and drinks (plenty of water!) during your stay in Wadi Rum. You need to exchange/withdraw enough cash for the trip in Amman or at the airport. There are no cash points in Wadi Rum and bankcards are not accepted there.
