Travel to Egypt – an update: 20/02/2014

In July we wrote a blog article about the effects of the unrest occurring in Egypt and said that we would update customers of any changes. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has updated its advice on travel to the area and you can read a detailed account of this here.

At present, the Sharm el Sheikh perimeter barrier, which includes the airport and the areas of Sharm el Maya, Hadaba, Naama Bay, Sharks Bay and Nabq are still being advised as ok to travel to and according to the foreign office, enhanced security measures are in place to protect these areas.

If you’ve booked a holiday with us to stay in Taba or Dahab areas then we will contact you to discuss, however those due to stay in Sharm el Sheikh, your booking is fine. We have spoken to our suppliers in Sharm and they have advised that the area is currently quiet and that guests are enjoying their holiday with no concerns.

If you have any queries or concerns, feel free to send a message through the ‘Manage Your Booking’ section of our website.

    I returned from sharm on Friday after having a wonderful holiday there were security men and scanners on our entrance to the sharm plaza but not once did I feel threatened or uneasy the local people advised that it is mainly Cairo and Alexandria where the unrest was and we were perfectly safe,
