This year, TTC sees overall growth for Egypt, Greece & USA!

Published on : Friday, January 11, 2019

Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold, the upper premium and luxury tour brands of The Travel Corporation, are considering the Egypt travel market development from recovery to boom, or at least to boomlet, with further results impending as 2019 roars into action.


Jon Grutzner, the Travel Corporation’s president for the USA for both brands, told Travel Market Report that Insight and Luxury Gold are all set to experience a return to the glorified days of Egypt, which was one of Insight’s most popular destinations, historically.


“We used to move more guests to Egypt than to Europe,” said Grutzner. “We have a beautiful product in Egypt. We believe it’s our fastest-growing destination, along with India. It’s really going to be a push. We believe it’s the next Iceland.”


Egypt’s tourism drop started by a series of political clashes in Egypt initiated with the Arab Spring in 2011. At first, with an optimistic move towards democracy and self-determination, events became bitter and news stories of aggressive clashes among political factions’ made tourists go haywire.


The political violence in Egypt all these years were limited to Egyptians feuding with each other and did not influence tourists or the tourism due to the fact that there is one thing all sides of the political spectrum in Egypt agree on: Tourism is essential to the country’s economic well-being.
