EasyJet Holidays has unveiled a new holiday package for British people to “Escape the UK” for a month-long all-inclusive holiday in Egypt.
The company said that the ‘Escape the UK’ holiday is cheaper than the average UK household’s monthly winter energy bills by £227 per person.
The 28-day stay at the 5-star Stella Gardens Resort in Egypt includes travel, accommodation, meals, internet, and gym for just £650per person.
It also includes free snacks and a bottomless supply of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are also on offer.
The average UK household spends £2,255 per month which works out to £877 per person, according to ONS data.
The figures are based on average monthly living costs, including rent (£1,068), gas and electric bills (£175) and food shopping (£368).
The typical household also pays £285 on eating out and takeaways, £45 on WiFi and landline and £272 on travel.
Rising living costs have pulled monthly bills above that of luxury travel with 40% of Brits searching for a winter escape.
Egypt is one of the most popular tourist destinations in winter, as temperature reaches 23-24 °C on average.
Hurghada is one of the favourite destinations for a winter getaway. A five-hour drive, or one-hour flight from Cairo, Hurghada is a bustling town that changed from a sleepy fishermen’s village into one of Egypt’s favourite tourism centres for foreign visitors.
If you are looking for some sun during the days but want to dance the nights away, Hurghada has it all. In its recently built marina, upscale restaurants serve a variety of food and live music and clubs offer entertainment until the wee hours of the night.
