Last Minute Holidays Specialist Reports Drop in Egypt Bookings
TUNBRIDGE WELLS, England, November 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –
Packyourbags.com, specialists in last minute holidays
[http://www.packyourbags.com ] has seen a drop in its number of winter Egypt
Even though there are currently no travel restrictions to Egypt, as per
the latest information published by the British Foreign & Commonwealth
Office, it is probably not that much of a surprise for tour operator
Packyourbags.com to see a drop in its Egypt bookings. The violent outbreaks
earlier this year and the more recent demonstrations in Cairo are all taking
their toll on the country’s tourism industry.
Although the Foreign & Commonwealth Office has not issued any travel
restrictions it is recommending that British nationals should stay away from
Tahrir Square, including the Egyptian Museum and the Downtown area of Cairo
including Maspero and the Interior Ministry.
But while Egypt bookings are down, Packyourbags.com is experiencing
uplift to destinations such as The Gambia and the Canary Islands. These two
destinations are already well established winter-sun hotspots for Brits, and
are a great option for those who would like to find an alternative to Egypt.
As a former British colony, The Gambia is located on the west coast of
Africa with plenty of alluring beaches and off the beaten track adventures,
flights from the UK take 6 hours and there’s no time difference. With it
also being an English speaking country there’s a lot of appealing elements
for holidaying in that part of the world, particularly for Brits as the best
weather is during the winter months.
As for the Canary Islands, their allure and popularity as an excellent
winter-sun holiday destination is very well known, there’s seven islands to
choose from, although the most popular by far is Tenerife. With flights
taking approximately 4 hours, it’s no wonder the Brits head there year in
year out in their thousands.
