The splendours of Egypt with total peace of mind

27th March 2013 Print

Book your journey to Egypt with confidence, safe in the knowledge that if there is a hint of trouble which makes you nervous, you can postpone your journey with Abercrombie & Kent for up to two years.

Abercrombie & Kent has undertaken the ultimate guarantee for travel to Egypt. Should any sign of tension or disturbance reach the British press, the A&K Safety Net allows travellers to postpone their trip for up to 2 years at absolutely no cost. 

Travel is never without risk and since the Arab Spring of 2011, the Middle East has experienced more than its fair share of upheaval.

However, Abercrombie & Kent understands that a holiday with safety concerns and anxiety is no holiday and is well aware that Egypt is subject to localised disturbances and that Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel restrictions vary from time to time.

Tour operators are only legally bound to absolve a booking if the FCO specifically advises against travel to a destination, however, A&K promises its clients that if anything in the press gives them even the slightest concern, they can postpone  their journey for up to two years, at no cost.

As far as safety on the ground goes, in Egypt A&K has a highly experienced team of 500 staff, including a specialist unit whose sole purpose is to scout the key sites to detect signs of tension. With its infrastructure and network of connections, A&K can be flexible, reactive and realistic. The company’s finger is well and truly on the pulse and it is totally committed to ensuring clients’ time in Egypt is never compromised in any way.

Egypt should be on everyone’s bucket list. The land of the pharaohs is home to some of the most iconic sites in existence. The ‘silver lining’ for savvy travellers is that Egypt’s far less crowded than it was before the Arab Spring. Now is probably the best time to appreciate the country’s incredible treasures in virtual solitude.

As Amr Badr, Managing Director of A&K Egypt said: ‘Our country is on a journey. It will take time to achieve our vision of democracy. But we will get there. In the meantime, at A&K we have a responsibility to our guests to ensure they experience Egypt in complete safety and comfort.’

A recent travellers commented: “Egypt has always been my dream destination and it was amazing.  It’s just a shame that the political climate has frightened away so many tourists. The impact on so many of the people we met is heart-breaking”.
