Egypt Travel Insurance
If you love ancient civilisations and history then Egypt is the destination for you. The country is famous for the awe-inspiring ancient pyramids, but the country also boasts 3,000 year old temples and roman streets. If history isn’t your thing, you could relax in one of Egypt’s world class resorts, indulge in some fantastic scuba and wreck diving, cruise the Nile, or even ride a camel through the Sahara.
If you’re planning a trip to Egypt, just remember to check the FCO’s advice before booking, as certain parts of the country and air space have been deemed unsafe due to recent events. Once you know your trip plans are safe, make sure you invest in quality holiday insurance.*
