Egypt is expected to be one of the top destinations in 2010 for British tourists looking to make the most of their holiday budget this year.
Egypt represents excellent value for money for tourists after the Egyptian Pound dropped by nearly 15% against the British Pound throughout 2009.
According to the Post Office sales of the Egyptian pound at its branches increased by 9% last year and the organisation has predicted that Egypt will continue to provide British tourists with some of the largest gains in 2010.
Commenting on Egypt’s popularity, head of travel money at the Post Office, Sarah Munro said:
“Low package prices and cheap resort costs made Egypt popular in the noughties.
The weaker Egyptian pound combined with a top ten place in our Worldwide Holiday Cost Barometer of destinations offering the lowest costs for tourist staples, should also make Egypt a star choice in 2010.”
