The Answer To Finding A Low Cost Holiday To EgyptBy
While there is no doubt excellent value to be found in the Red Sea, a lot of people do get annoyed with a few of the prices of package holidays from the different United Kingdom airports. There is outstanding value to be stumbled upon in the stores, pubs and restaurants in the various resorts combined with the fantastic year round temperatures, are just some of the reasons why The Red Sea is such a favourite choice.
The key trouble is that there are simply not enough flights to Egypt and this allows prices to remain higher than other popular European destinations. Granted that The Red Sea does fall into a more expensive APD (Air Passenger Duty) zone than European destinations but the flight costs dictate where you will get your holiday to Egypt for a good price or not.
When talking about flights to The Red Sea, we are talking about the main tourist destinations of Sharm and Hurghada. Both of these international airports serve quite a few resorts and even though there are flights from the Britain into Cairo, Taba and Marsa Alam, the most popular international airports are Sharm and Hurghada.
As with any travel arrangements, when attempting to save money, overall flexibility is the main factor. Egypt is an enormously popular place for families so school holidays, costs and availability can be a major problem. Wherever possible, try and travel in term times. Historically, most of the cheapest flight prices are in mid January with flight prices from 150GBP each. Coupled with low hotel rates, it is possible to tailor make a holiday for just with 220GBP (based on 2 sharing) but this naturally depends on the grade of accommodation and board basis.
The most expensive times of year are Christmas / New Year, Easter and August so if you are looking for a cheap Red Sea holiday and are flexible with your travelling dates, look to steer clear of these busy times.
