Paragraph 5.6


The largest travel operators are cancelling trips to Egypt for the rest of the winter season. Those who have booked will get their money back or a new trip (if there are any left). In this instance there hasn’t been any problems concerning compensation between the vendor and customer. It is, however, worth knowing about the paragraph in the General terms and conditions for travel, which apply during crisis situations:

5.6… both the operator and the traveller have the right to waive the contract if, at the point when the trip shall commence, there is at or in the vicinity of the destination or along the planned route, a catastrophe, declaration of war, general strike or other intervention, which detrimentally affects the completion of the trip or the conditions at the destination. In order to examine whether the event is of such a serious nature, as previously mentioned, competent Swedish or international authorities shall be consulted.

The authority indicated here is the Swedish Foreign Office (Utrikesdepartementet – UD), who no longer warn against travelling to the Egyptian tourist destinations by the Red Sea. The travel operators’ decision to cancel all trips until the end of the winter season at the end of April holds firm.
