CAIRO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Spending the winter season in a warm place has always been popular, whether you’re a digital nomad or a pensioner. But, the rising cost of living over the past year could cause many to reconsider whether, or how, they travel.
While Egypt has long been on travelers’ radar, thanks to its low-cost of living, it has now become a popular long-stay winter destination. In fact, a one month stay in a luxurious three or four-star-hotel can cost less than living in the Western European countries for the same amount of time.
Research collated by the Egyptian Government from a variety of tour operators shows a four-week winter sun stay costs, on average, €1 218 per couple. This includes 160€ per person for a return flight, 25€ per couple for a double room in a four-star hotel and 8€ per person for a three-course dinner at a local restaurant.
In comparison, the average monthly cost of a two-person household for gas, energy, food and beverages is 1 396€ in Italy, 1 509€ in France and 1 601€ in Germany during the winter.
The Egyptian Government is currently promoting and facilitating month long stays at a wide variety of hotels.
Amr El-Kady, CEO of Egyptian Tourism Authority, said: “Egypt is always happy to welcome travelers from Europe. We are doing our best to make the stay as effortless and affordable as possible. This winter season, we invite you to spend the cold months under the kind Egyptian sun, saving the budget and filling life with fantastic new experiences”.
