Egypt Travel over Xmas - prebook?Hi all,
we are planning our 21day Egypt holiday over Christmas and New Years. So far we've booked our flights into Hurghada and out of Cairo. We'd like to spend a couple of days in Luxor and Aswan to see the temples and tombs, dive in Hurghada and see the Pyramids in Cairo. Our only worry is that we don't want to book all the accommodation ahead, as we like to be flexible in staying longer at a place if we really like it. Now my question is - how risky is it to not book ALL the accommodation ahead? We know that this time of the year is usually busy, but on the other side we've heart that the numbers of tourists have declined a lot. What would you suggest?
Reg. Accommodation - we are a couple (25 and 30), travelling with my parents and my brother (23). We don't have very high accommodation standards, as long as the place is clean.. :)
thanks and greetings from Italy.

I think we'll do a mix: prebooking some accommodation and leaving others "free" and choose on the spot where to stay!
Can't wait for the holiday to begin! :)

We have booked flights to Egypt (2 adults and one 7 year old child) just after Christmas and have similar plans. However 2 days ago the UK Foreign Office have announced that they advise against travel to Egypt due to their discovering a terrorist plan to attack tourist hotels.
I don't know whether you know about this but I am trying to find out people's thoughts. We don't want to put ourselves and our child in danger but would lose 100% of the cost of our flights.
