64% increase in Egypt's fuel prices brings fuel surcharge

| No TrackBacks

In the past few days, diesel prices have risen by 64% and dive operators have had no choice but to introduce a fuel surcharge. Accordingly, as of 28 July, Emperor will apply  fuel surcharges to new bookings as follows:

€5 per day for boat diving

€3 per day for house reef diving

€55 per person per week for northern safaris

€80 per person per week for southern safaris

Existing bookings for 2014 will not be surcharged, however, new bookings for 2014 and new and existing bookings for 2015 will.

Mike Braun, Emperor Divers' General Manager, explained, "Last year we absorbed an average 75% increase in fuel costs but fuel prices, including natural gas, have risen by as much as 78% and have a direct effect on the cost of transporting food and goods as well as public transportation so we have no option but to apply this surcharge. However, with the price reductions seen in the Red Sea over the past few years, we still feel the area offers fantastic value for money."
