Save Money While Seeking the Sun: Cost Effective Winter Stays in Egypt


CAIRO–()–Spending the winter season in a warm place has always been popular, whether you’re a digital nomad or a retiree. But the rise in the cost of living over the past year may cause many to reconsider whether or how to travel.

While Egypt has long been on the traveller’s 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 Western European countries for the same amount of time.

Research compiled by the Egyptian government from a variety of tour operators shows that 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 in a local restaurant.

In comparison, the average monthly cost of a two-person household for gas, energy, food and drink 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 in a wide variety of hotels.

Amr El-Kady, chief executive officer of the Egyptian Tourism Board, said: “Egypt is always happy to welcome travelers from Europe. We are doing our best to make your stay as easy and convenient as possible. This winter season, we invite you to spend the cold months under the gentle Egyptian sun, saving your budget and filling your life with fantastic new experiences”.

What does Egypt offer? Abundance.

From Cairo to Luxor, from the alluring desert to the lush Nile Delta, Egypt is every traveler’s dream. Whether it’s diving into the rich underwater world of the Red Sea, sailing the Nile into the sunset or tracing the secrets of the ancient Egyptians in stunning temple complexes, the land of the pharaohs has something to offer every visitor.

Among the most famous destinations is the capital Cairo, where you can immerse yourself in all eras of Egyptian history in the Egyptian Museum, and visit the famous Pyramids of Giza with the imposing Sphinx. Another highlight is the city of Luxor, which offers some spectacular wonders, including the Valley of the Kings, Karnak Temple and the legendary Luxor Temple, which is one of the must-see places on any trip and continues to enchant with ancient stories.

If you prefer active and adventurous pursuits, you don’t have to look far. Egypt is not only a paradise for divers, but also offers desert excursions, Nile cruises and breathtaking landscapes such as the Colored Canyon National Park in the Sinai Peninsula. While ecotourism is becoming increasingly popular in the country and spiritual tours are also being offered, Egypt is also known for high quality spa treatments.

A variety of flight connections ensures a pleasant way to get there. There are direct flights to the resorts of Egypt from almost all major European cities.
