Egypt is a great country to spend your holiday in. In fact even in seasons where tourists are flooding Egypt, you can get great deals that make you wonder why you haven't though of spending your holiday in Egypt before. Egypt is one of the cheapest countries in the world but you need to know how to make use of its cheap prices.

First thing to do when you are planning to spend your holiday in Egypt is to know what time of year the prices of hotels are cheapest. Hotels have what they call season. the season is the time when the weather conditions are perfect to spend a holiday. These seasons vary by the region, for example while it is perfect to spend a holiday at the sea side city of Alexandria in summer, the heat of the sun at that time in Aswan is unbearable but a city like Sharm El Sheikh the weather is almost hot all year long.

Some prefer to spend their holiday in Christmas but while they will spend more money than in other times they would enjoy their holiday more if they spend it in a less crowded time of the year.

When you plan a holiday you have to think of your budget and move around the Internet to find great deal at low prices but a few tips before you do will help you spend less and enjoy more.

Advice to help you have a cheap vacation in Egypt

  • You can rent an apartment instead of checking in a hotel. If you have an Egyptian friend, he might help you rent a good apartment at cheap price.
  • You can also book a bed and breakfast hotel room, this way you will be free to dine at any restaurant and pay a relatively lower price (restaurants do NOT charge more if you are a foreigner contrast to Hotels which have a higher rate for non-Egyptians)

  • Before taking a taxi to your destination, just ask for the local fare. Taxi drivers have a tendency to charge more if you are not an Egyptian but you can report the taxi driver to the local police if he charged you higher fare.
  • You can travel between Egyptian cities by train or bus as bus and train tickets are cheap in Egypt.
