An increasing number of travellers are booking all-inclusive breaks to the Egyptian resort, one tour operator has stated.
The number of people booking all-inclusive holidays to Egypt has increased substantially, one travel agent has revealed.
Bookings for all-inclusive breaks to Sharm el Sheikh have grown by 94 per cent in the five months from November to March when compared with the same period a year earlier, directline holidays reported.
Maria Whiteman, chief executive at the company, explained that the surge in popularity for all-inclusive trips could be attributed to the economic downturn which has made Brits “more price conscious”.
“Ultimately, the British public want complete transparency on holiday costs and the all-inclusive trip affords them this security,” she noted.
Sharm el Sheikh has become a popular destination among travellers from the UK because it is easily accessible and boasts almost guaranteed sunshine.
Tourists seeking a water sports destination also flock to the region, where the Red Sea offers some fantastic opportunities for scuba diving as well as water skiing and wind surfing.
