Extreme low price in tour packages intimidate tourism industry

Published on : Friday, November 24, 2017

indexInvestors related to tourism and hotel industry in the Red Sea governorate have requested the government of Egypt and the Egyptian Competition Authority to help in ending a recent trend of many companies related to tourism and their selling winter vacation trips at remarkably low prices, which actually doesn’t reflect the real value of the trips.


Different tourism experts, owners of various tourism villages along with sector workers cautioned against the increasing trend which they point out that those may decrease revenues and intimidate the tourism industry in the future.


They have even requested the Ministry of Tourism to interfere and fix the prices that would cater to all. In the midst of the Ministry’s inefficiency to control prices, Ali Reda, Honorary President of the Tourism Investment Association of the Red Sea, urged the government to interfere in order to discontinue the sale of low priced tourist trips ranging between US $10 to US $15 per night and all inclusive. Reda said that numerous travel agencies trade for one-week trips with flight tickets and all-inclusive accomodation at a price less than US $300 adding that on the Dutch and Belgian markets, few of the rooms charge as little as US $10 per night.
