How far could your Egyptian pounds go?  

Thousands of years of diverse culture and history centred on the River Nile mingle in the year-round heat of Egypt. And whether you’re navigating the bustling streets of Cairo or soaking up the sun in Sharm El-Sheikh, you’ll need some Egyptian pounds at the ready to make your holiday purchases. But how far will they go?

A trip to Egypt is still relatively cheap, with good exchange rates on the Egyptian pound meaning your British sterling can go far.

Budget travellers
For backpackers or those travelling on a budget it’s possible to get a flavour of Egypt from around £15 to £30 a day, staying in budget accommodation and sampling local street food such as Egyptian staples fava beans and falafel. Travel around the country is cheap, with trains between Cairo and Luxor costing as little as £3 to £4 for the ten-hour journey.

Mid-range travellers
Staying in a basic hotel room with a private bathroom and fan and eating in local restaurants will cost between £15 and £20 a day, allowing for a bit of sightseeing and the odd daily treat. Travelling the country by air is affordable with domestic flights on EgyptAir starting at around £20. If you're heading to the beach book well in advance to get the best package deal or try a self-catering or bed-and-breakfast package.

Luxury travellers
The main expense in Egypt is the entry into tourist sites. A complete visit to the Giza pyramids will set you back more than £30 in admission charges. Sharm el-Sheik is more westernised than other tourist destinations and many hotels and resorts will operate closer to western prices. The safest and most comfortable way to travel is by private taxi, but naturally this is also the most expensive way to get around.

Prices are approximate and subject to change.
