Classic Collection has unveiled a Morocco and Egypt brochure to highlight multi-centre holidays.
The 84-page brochure, which is being delivered to agents this week, focuses on less-established resorts in cities including Taghazout, Tangier and Fez, alongside popular destinations such as Marrakech and Sharm el Sheikh, and Nile cruises.
Four nights at Fairmont Royal Palm Marrakech starts from £725 and seven nights at the all-inclusive White Beach Resort, Taghazout starts from £905.
Full board, seven-night Nile cruises start from £1,269, and seven nights at the all-inclusive Baron Palms Resort in Sharm el Sheikh starts from £1,207.
The brochure release follows Morocco’s decision to ease Covid entry restrictions, meaning vaccinated travellers can enter by completing an online form, and unvaccinated travellers can enter with proof of a negative Covid test.
Doranne Dawson, product and purchasing manager for Morocco and Egypt, said: “Demand for Nile cruise and stay holidays in Egypt is gaining traction as are two- and multi-centre holidays between Marrakech, the Agafay Desert and the High Atlas mountains, with customers preferring our private transfer service between resorts over interconnecting flights.
“Both Morocco and Egypt are recognisable as great value for money, non-Euro countries offering quality service and excellent hotel facilities at appealing price points.
“Sales for this summer are encouraging and the easing of entry conditions and the removal of pre-travel testing requirements for the fully vaccinated are particularly helpful.”
Dawson continued: “Pre-pandemic, the UK was the second largest international market for Moroccan tourism. The number of flight connections for summer 2022 will exceed 2019 and our commercial advantage of using all airlines allows us to take advantage of the Air Arabia, British Airways, easyJet, Royal Air Maroc, Ryanair and Tui services now serving the destination.
“In Egypt, Sharm el Sheikh has reopened, EgyptAir has restarted its direct flight from Heathrow to Luxor, and there are a number of Egyptology anniversaries including the centenary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb. The Grand Egyptian Museum is also due to open in Giza in November, 2022 and should be a major draw.”
