Save Money While Seeking the Sun: Cost Effective Winter Stays in Egypt
Spending the winter season in a warm place has always been popular, whether you’re a digital nomad or a pensioner. But, the rising cost of living over the past year could cause many to reconsider whether, or how, they travel.
While Egypt has long been on travelers’ radar, thanks to its low-cost of living, it has now become a popular long-stay winter destination. In fact, a one month stay in a luxurious three or four-star-hotel can cost less than living in the Western European countries for the same amount of time.
Research collated by the Egyptian Government from a variety of tour operators shows a four-week winter sun stay costs, on average, €1 218 per couple. This includes 160€ per person for a return flight, 25€ per couple for a double room in a four-star hotel and 8€ per person for a three-course dinner at a local restaurant.
In comparison, the average monthly cost of a two-person household for gas, energy, food and beverages is 1 396€ in Italy, 1 509€ in France and 1 601€ in Germany during the winter.
The Egyptian Government is currently promoting and facilitating month long stays at a wide variety of hotels.
Amr El-Kady, CEO of Egyptian Tourism Authority, said: “Egypt is always happy to welcome travelers from Europe. We are doing our best to make the stay as effortless and affordable as possible. This winter season, we invite you to spend the cold months under the kind Egyptian sun, saving the budget and filling life with fantastic new experiences”.
What does Egypt have to offer? Plenty.
From Cairo to Luxor, from the beguiling desert to the lush delta of the Nile, Egypt is a traveler's dream. Whether diving into the rich underwater world of the Red Sea, sailing on the Nile towards the sunset or tracing the secrets of the ancient Egyptians in stunning temple complexes, the land of the pharaohs has something to offer to every visitor.
Among the most famous destinations is the capital Cairo, where you can immerse yourself in all eras of Egyptian history in the Egyptian Museum, and visit the famous Pyramids of Giza with the impressive Sphinx. Another highlight is the city of Luxor, which offers some spectacular wonders, that include the Valley of the Kings, the Temple of Karnak and the legendary Luxor Temple, which is one of the absolute must-sees on any trip and continues to enchant with ancient stories.
If you prefer active and adventurous activities, you don't have to look far. Egypt is not only a diver's paradise, but also offers desert excursions, Nile cruises and breathtaking landscapes such as the Colored Canyon National Park on the Sinai Peninsula. While ecotourism is becoming increasingly popular in the country and even spiritual tours are offered, Egypt is also known for particularly high-quality spa treatments.
A variety of flight connections ensure a pleasant way to get there. There are direct flights to resorts of Egypt from almost every major European city.

Ipsen Receives CHMP Negative Opinion for Palovarotene as a Treatment for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva in E.U.27.1.2023 07:00:00 CET | Press release
Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended not to grant marketing authorization for investigational palovarotene as a treatment for the ultra-rare bone disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). In the E.U. there are currently only symptomatic treatments for FOP, which do not reduce the formation of extra-skeletal bone in patients with the condition. Ipsen will be requesting a re-examination of the CHMP opinion, based on scientific data available from the existing palovarotene clinical trial program. FOP causes permanent and continuous new bone formation in soft and connective tissues, like muscles, tendons and ligaments, a process known as heterotopic ossification (HO).1 Once formed, it is irreversible.1 The average age of diagnosis is 5 years old2 and ultimately FOP shortens the median life expectancy to 56 years as untimely death is
