Taxi share available

Post by claverley » Fri Jul 21, 2017 9:14 pm

Flights by Egyptair; Heathrow to Luxor in December I was quoted over £800 each [they must be joking]
So like others I have booked from Birmingham to Hurghada £231 each.
As I have booked a Luxor Taxi to collect and return me i do have room if its of interest? [please make contact]
Nov 1st returning 15th Nov AND December 3rd returning 17th Dec.

My friends that wanted a return visit in August had the same problem, high prices, so they are coming out in September instead. They did the Hurghada run last year, never again they said.

Blame the kids, prices shoot up over the school summer holidays for all travel.

We've done that run a number of times (hired car). Dreary scenery mostly but otherwise easy; quieter, more comfortable than the coach and you only stop when you need to.
Carpe diem! :le:

At least it's a pretty decent road these days..less than 3 hours to the East Bank via the east desert road.

If you're heading for the West Bank, go straight to Qena, over the Nile Bridge and take the west desert road. Again, less than 3 hours to Gurna...and a bit of scenery on the way.

Just been in contact with the friends that were coming back in September, £800 direct flight, so found one in August cheaper, but saying that they are now being asked for £61.60 PP for an extra 23k bag because they have booked a cheaper flight. As they are here for a month, one case PP is not enough.
