Rising living costs mean that a winter break could cost less than staying in the UK and where better than the bargain winter sun destination of Egypt!

With Egypt Escapes you can enjoy luxury all-inclusive beach holidays in the sun this winter from just £299pp (based on 7-nights). Relax on the Red Sea Riviera with options in Hurghada or Sharm-el-Sheikh areas.

Why not combine your beach break with a tour by adding a Nile Cruise or trip to Cairo to see the Pyramids.

At Egypt Escapes we also have special offer 28-day packages that give the chance to ‘hibernate’ this winter and dodge the sky-high UK bills. Not only would it be warmer but an all-inclusive package might be cheaper than meeting the cost of monthly winter bills. With average British household costs set to exceed £2,255 per month, a cheap foreign winter getaway to Egypt is a real option.

A comparison of outgoings, including accommodation, fuel, food and entertainment, indicates that a 28-day stay at a luxury hotel in Egypt comes out £227 cheaper per person than staying in the UK (inyourarea.co.uk).

Their analysis claims that spending about £445 on rent, £70 on gas and electric and £150 on food each month, plus other expenses, adds up to a total spend of £877 per person – whereas the new long distance package deals start from just £650pp.

Personal finance expert and author, Lynn Beattie (founder of Mrs MummyPenny) reviewed the cost comparison data.

She said: “The data collected in this study is incredibly insightful showing just how much the average household in the UK will spend on the most basic of living expenses.

“While escaping abroad does not make all our financial commitments disappear, it’s startling to know that like for like, it’s cheaper to buy an all-inclusive holiday than stay in the UK this winter. For consumers who could viably sublet their homes and work abroad, the new package deals for Egypt holidays poses a very attractive offer.”

There’s a weather upside too. The Met Office suggests the UK will experience a greater than normal chance of colder winter temperatures this winter, meanwhile at Egypt’s balmy Makadi Bay the average sits at 20°C.
