Mystical Egypt, the land of the pharaohs, dazzles with its spellbinding ancient parade that surely overwhelms the senses! No wonder, the nation catches the fancy of seasoned travellers and novice holidaymakers, tempting them to spend on cheap tickets to Egypt.

Like any other holiday hotspot, Egypt also has its own share of quirks! Hence first-time travellers buying air tickets to Cairo, Sharm El Sheikh or other Egyptian charmers should be heedful of some useful tips to avoid any embarrassments or worse. Here is a little smattering on some important tips for first-time travellers spending money on air tickets to Egypt.

Entry Requirements

Britons buying tickets to Egypt should own a valid passport that must be valid for a minimum period of six months from the date of entry into Egypt.

British nationals need to procure a visa before spending on cheap airline tickets to Egypt. However, those buying air tickets to Sharm El Sheikh, Dahab, Nuweiba and Taba resorts, for maximum stays up to 14 days, do not require a visa and receive a free entry permission stamp upon arrival. Those buying air tickets for destinations other than the mentioned ones or overstaying at these destinations must procure a visa. For exhaustive details on Visa related information visit the official website of FCO.

Social Taboos

Don’t indulge in homosexual display of affection in public places as it may land you in jail on the count of violating public decency laws. Even heterosexual couples are advised to avoid getting overtly amorous in public. It is smart to adhere to conservative dress codes while heading for sightseeing trips!

Health Safety

Do consult doctor for medical advice and proper vaccinations. Seek comprehensive medical insurance before buying airline tickets to Egypt. Take proper care of water and food hygiene while in Egypt. Drink only boiled or bottled water. Exercise general precautions to avoid getting affected with heatstroke, exhaustion and dehydration.

General Safety

Adhere to the local rules and regulations to the dot! Be mindful of taking assistance from the hotel concierge for proper and correct advices. Avoid travelling alone in deserted places and during odd hours. Do safeguard your valuables. Leave items of financial value at hotel safe before heading for shopping or sightseeing expeditions.

Best Time to Visit

The winter months of December to February make for the high tourism season, such that airlines often witness a mad scramble for cheap air tickets to Egypt during this time! The summer months of June to August make for the low tourism season and the best time to grab lucrative deals on air tickets to Sharm El Sheikh, Cairo or any other Egyptian city.

If you are buying air tickets to Cairo, Alexandria or Luxor to explore the inundating charms or to shop, do well to visit during March to May or September to November!
