Egipto con Francia 8

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 are at the disposal of our clients in case they wish us to manage this issue from our agency.

– Although we organize our trips with the greatest detail, travellers who arrive in Cairo by their own means and contract the trip without international flights, only with domestic flights Cairo-Luxor and Aswan-Cairo, may have to travel on different flight 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 purchase the international tickets where it is most convenient.

– Airport taxes are subject to revision 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 surcharge, but they keep the right to modify and/or change them before departure without previous 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 for organizational and logistic needs it would be 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.

Please note that it is the responsibility of each client to ensure that they are in possession of the necessary documentation, in accordance with the laws of the country being visited. It is customary to require a passport with a minimum validity of six months, from the date of commencement of the trip, although each country has its own requirements, which must be checked personally by the client at the corresponding Consulate closest to their place of residence.
At the time of writing this information, all citizens of Europe and most American countries visiting Egypt, need an entry visa to the country, which will be up to thirty days if the purpose of the trip is to carry out unpaid activities, such as tourism. The visa can be arranged directly at Cairo airport on arrival.
In any case, this information is not official and must be corroborated by each client before starting the trip.
