The currency of Egypt is the Egyptian Pound (EGP). Most majors cıtıes and towns in Egypt have ATMs and credit or debits cards are widely accepted in the tourist areas. If you plan to travel off the beaten track, be prepared to have cash for souqs, small meals and entrance fees. While every traveller's spending habits may differ slightly, we have estimated the average daily expenses to help with budgeting for your next trip. Here you'll find the average cost for a meal or drink and advice for best practice in tipping.

Tipping

Known as 'Baksheesh', tipping is a natural part of daily life and is considered part of the traditional payment structure for services in Egypt. We recommend budgeting around 5-10 USD a day for tipping with estimation of a ~10% tip at restaurant, taxis and the rest. Your Guide, Felucca Sail crew and Driver would also appreciate this kind of gratitude at the end of your tour or their service.
Souqs, or local markets, along with larger bazaars are not only the perfect place to shop for souvenirs but also among the most remarkable attractions of Egypt. The biggest and most famous soup is the 500-year-old Khan El Khalili Bazaar in Cairo. Quailty can vary quite significantly depending on how much you spend and where you shop, so feel free to always ask your expert guide for their advice while on tour. Haggling and bargaining over prices in bazaars and souqs is a fundamental part of shopping in Egypt. The key is to start low and work your way up but always have a maximum value in mind.

Cartouche Jewellery

Countrywide

Cartouche, commonly known as hieroglyphics, are an ornate Egyptian scroll featuring engravings and inscriptions. It is common to find gold and silver jewellers all over Egypt selling personalised Cartouche pendants. Silver jewellery featuring a cartouche pendant is a common souvenir across Egypt but to buy quality, we recommend purchasing silver that is stamped with ‘925’ quality. Prices for quality Cartouche jewellery can range between 10 USD – 1,000 USD depending on the metals.

Muski Glassware

Cairo

Since medieval times, Muski glass has been hand-blown to create incredible plates, vases, candleholders, glasses and more to fashion through the homes of local Egyptians. This bubble-shot glassware comes in vibrant shades of blue, green and purple, and is known to be extremely fragile so pack with caution!

Perfume

Countrywide

Egypt is a major trading centre for the perfume industry, and you can’t escape the country without visiting an essential-oil dealer to try a few for yourself! Got a favourite perfume that you would like to purchase on the cheap? Local shops across Egypt will duplicate famous perfumes at a reasonable price. Lotus (sawsan) and Jasmine (full) are the most distinctively Egyptian scents, and you can expect to pay approximately 15-25 USD for a duplicate perfume.
