Again, YES, choose Egypt as your home country, as this was always a way of getting internal flights at very reduced prices and was a 'tip' that was regularly recommended on this forum, but some recent reports stated that it was no longer possible.

So, if you are still being given that option AND the resulting cheaper flight then I would 'go for it' before the option is withdrawn again.

Hi, would you mind sharing your experiences in Egypt?, me and my friends are thinking of going in April but we keep hearing we shouldnt, tried taking a cruise but cruise lines (at least Canadian travelling agencies), dont go there anymore.

Thank you!

Cholulteca_2 ,welcome to the club,I am planning to visit Egypt next month and take the advantage of low prices,I can see from other members who returned that it is safe. We are looking for a tour company as well and I guess it would be cheaper if we book online with local agency because tours from US are very expensive evenif it includes airfares.

Hello.

We are in England and booked our egypt holiday through a travel agency listed on Travelzoo.com. This site allows travel companies to advertise reduced packages. I must assume that this Travelzoo site is available world-wide?

Hope this helps.

You can also wait until you arrive in Luxor to book a cruise with one of many travel companies that have offices there. That way too, you can have a look at the boats on offer and also haggle for the best price.
