Euros or Pounds / weather

We have a few Euos left from a previous holiday, would we get as good rate bringing euros to Egypt or should we stick to Pounds?

Also, we will be there 10/17DEC is the weather still warm enugh for short trousers, t-shirts and sandals?

Thank you in advance for your comments.

Sorry don't know exchange rate for Euros at moment but think it's still about 11LE to 1 pound sterling.

Weather should still be nice and warm in the day mid 20's possibly a little less/more some days. Once the sun goes down though you will feel the difference in temperatures. Suggest you bring a couple of woolies or a light fleece.

Hi - there are approx 8.24 LE to the Euro at the moment and the temp will depend on what part of Egypt you are going to. Look at undergroundweather and look at the everage temp for the part of Egypt you are trsavelling for that week last year. It will give you an idea.

The front page of www.luxortraveltips.com has the current rate of exchange Euro:Egyptian pound. Take the Euros you have but don't change any English pounds to Euros. Change your Euros and English pounds to Egyptian Pounds in Egypt, not before you go.

If you are going to Luxor, the weather will be fine for short trousers and t-shirts in the day but it gets chilly at night, so take a jumper or fleece as well.

you will get a much better rate changing your euros at the airport in egypt than changing them into pounds here first. I used my left over euros last time i went and got good rate. whatever you do don't get your egyptian pounds in this country.
