Egypt among top 3 destinations this summer: The Independent

The Independent newspaper said that Egypt, the Caribbean and the United States are the three main foreign destinations that travel agencies consider most in demand this summer.

This was revealed by the latest edition of the national observatory of outbound tourism, an initiative promoted by companies such as Amadeus, Carrefour Viajes, IAG7/ Airmet, Iberia, Ilunion, Mundiplan and the National Confederation of Travel Agencies (UNAV).

Egypt continues to be a destination on the rise, with 36 percent of agencies listing it as one of the most requested regions over the coming months.

Around 52 percent of travel agencies consulted consider the Caribbean as one of the most sought after destinations.

This is a significant increase compared to last year, when it was only at 36 percent demand.

This destination is one of the most important enclaves for the large Spanish holiday hotel chains, which have many assets operating in Cuba, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

Egypt successfully reached the list of the ten most popular tourist destinations for 2023, taking seventh place according to a MasterCard Economics Institute report, the first time Egypt has made the ranking since the report began.

The MasterCard Economics Institute released its Travel Industry Trends 2023 Report, which provides a snapshot of global travel amid ongoing economic changes, the reopening of China’s borders and rising consumer demand – including those in the Middle East and North Africa region.

According to the report, consumers are benefiting from the return of the traditional travel system in 2023, with priority for leisure travel as they wish to travel to new destinations around the world.
