General information for bookings:

General conditions:

– Two different prices are specified for the base circuit. The first one includes international flights from Madrid, and ground services and domestic flights in Egypt. The second only offers ground services and domestic flights in Egypt, giving the possibility to reach Cairo by your own means.

– The price of the international air ticket, from any other country of origin, is not included, and is the responsibility of each traveller. We remain at the disposal of our clients in case they wish us to manage this issue from our agency.

– Although we organise our trips with the greatest care, travellers who arrive in Cairo by their own means and book the trip without international flights, only with domestic Cairo-Luxor and Aswan-Cairo flights, may have to travel at different times from the rest of the group from Madrid.

– You can ask us for prices of international flights from any country of origin, without any obligation on the part of the traveller, who will be able to buy the international tickets where it is most convenient.

– Airport taxes are subject to review until the time of issue of the tickets.

– Some airlines allow the reservation of seats or spaces, some companies prepaid as individuals and others without a surcharge, but they keep the right to modify and/or change them before departure without prior notice. For this reason we cannot guarantee seats, even if they have been reserved in advance.

– In most countries of the world, hotels do not have triple rooms. In the case of wanting to sleep three people in the same room, the hotels include a portable bed in the double rooms, so from our agency we always recommend to travel in double or single rooms with a supplement, for the comfort of the travellers.

– The order of the visits could vary, if organisational and logistical needs make it more advisable.

Cancellation expenses:
– This trip is subject to special conditions of cancellation charges on the total amount of the trip, in addition to being governed by the general conditions of the Combined Travel Act.
– Once the air tickets have been issued, they cannot be changed or cancelled, so in the event of cancellation the costs are 100% of the air ticket, regardless of the costs corresponding to the days of cancellation.
