Egypt Package Tours Attracting A New Breed Of Traveler
Egyptian tour operators see an influx of young solo travelers seeking to take advantage of low cost package tours.
While some people have cancelled their plans to travel Egypt, others are scrambling to take advantage of low cost Egypt package tours being offered by tour operators across the country. According to Egypt Tours Plus, a leading tour operator that has been in business since 1955, Egypt is currently seeing an influx of younger tourists booking package deals.
"Ten years ago, most clients who came to us for Nile cruise vacation packages were either travelling as a family, or they were elderly couples or singles coming here for a relaxing historical tour of the country. At that point we found that many younger travelers preferred to travel independently, largely because it was the cheaper option. They could cut costs by staying in cheap dormitories or budget guesthouses; they could make their way around the country using cheap public transport, and most would be happy to live on cheap meals available in markets and at roadside cafes", said Mr. Marc Mahallati, a company spokesman for Egypt Tours Plus.
"We found that families and older travelers preferred modern day comforts, and they were willing to pay more in order to have them. I mean, the overwhelming majority of people booking Nile cruise vacations fell into this category, but today that is no longer the case", said Mr. Mahallati. "Right now we are seeing an increasing number of young travelers booking Nile cruise packages . Tour operators across the country, including us, have slashed prices in order to attract more tourists. All of a sudden, young people travelling on a tight budget are able to afford a Nile River cruise. They can travel Egypt in the lap of luxury; stay in 5-Star accommodation, and enjoy 5-Star meals rather than having to scrape by from one day to the next", said Mr. Mahallati.
Historically, families and older travelers have always been more conscious about personal safety compared to younger travelers who are out to explore the world. Most backpackers are searching for a sense of adventure, and Egypt is an ideal destination. Despite what has been going on in the country, Egypt is still considered to be a very safe place to visit, and the current situation in the country is nowhere near severe enough to deter young travelers who are longing to explore the Land of the Pharaohs.
With heavily discounted Egypt package tours, many of which include Sahara Desert adventures and Nile River cruises, tour operators are bound to see more and more younger tourists arriving to take advantage of the situation. Could this be the beginning of the end for families and senior travelers in Egypt? Egypt Tours Plus believes otherwise:
"At this moment in time, we are seeing a lot of interest among the younger crowd, but on the other hand, our Egypt Christmas vacation packages are mostly being booked by families and older couples. The younger crowd wants to experience a luxury Nile River cruise, but do they want to see the New Year in while they're on the water? I think many of them would prefer to be at some or other crazy New Year party", said Mr. Mahallati with a slight chuckle.
