What is the local currency?
The local currency is the Egyptian Pound (EGP).
Should I change money before I go?
Not necessarily, as you can exchange money at the airport. There are several money exchange counters upon arrival, as well as throughout the trip in banks and exchange offices.
How much should I budget per day for extras?
When it comes to money matters on the trip, every traveller is a little different. You know your spending habits better than we do, so please budget a sensible amount for things like meals, drinks, shopping, optional activities, tipping and laundry.
It’s always better to bring a little more than you think you’ll need.
Is it customary to tip?
For everyday life, we recommend between £4-8 a day which you can give to your guide to distribute equally.
Then for your guide and driver, it is customary, though not compulsory to tip them around £5 a day, this would normally be given at the end of the adventure and is completely up to you and whether you feel they have earned it.
