How Egypt holidays to Luxor have become more affordable

With the new set of cheaper-than-cheap Easyjet flights announced for the 2010-2010 winter season, it's no surprise that Luxor holidays are becoming more accessible than ever. Here we discuss exactly how.

How Egypt holidays to Luxor have become more affordable

With the news of Easyjet now operating a twice-weekly service to Luxor for the winter season, we look at how Egypt holidays in this popular resort have become more affordable.

"Luxor had been starved of direct flights from the UK, especially during the peak winter season, so this is extremely positive news," says Philip Breckner, commercial director of Discover Egypt.

Breckner strongly believes that the new easyJet flights will encourage more visitors to extend their Egypt holidays after taking a Nile cruise and thinks that many will also use the flights simply to visit Luxor.

Discover Egypt already incorporates easyJet flights in its programmes to Hurghada and Sharm-el-Sheik. It says the new flights will allow for more flexible itineraries in the region.

The price for a seven-night Nile cruise starting and ending in Luxor is £699 per person, including return flights, transfers in resort, full-board cruise and ten land-based excursions.

This is for departures in December 2010 and cruises on the five-star Viking Princess. Seven nights' bed-and-breakfast at the four-star El Luxor hotel on the Corniche costs from £299 per person including easyJet flights, transfers and accommodation.

In the meantime, we at The Holiday Place have also already created great bargain Egypt holidays in Luxor flying with Easyjet with prices starting from as little as £399 for a 7-night Nile Cruise with a bonus of 2 extra nights stay, absolutely free!

Does that sound like more than enough reasons to prove that now is the time to head to luxury Egypt holidays in Luxor and enjoy massive savings? We think so.
