Hurghada Convoy to end

Apparently you can now travel any time during daylight hours. What this actually going to mean will wait an see. For example can you travel direct to other places along the coast or you still have to use the road t Safaga. And what it is like coming back. But it is a great step forward and the sooner they get rid of the Luxor Abydos and Luxor Aswan convoy the happier my guests will be. If you could do a trip to Aswan stopping at Tod, Moalla, Esna, Edfu, El Kab, Gebel Silsila, Kom Ombo wouldn't that be so much better. And to not all arrive in Edfu at the same time Please soon

I've got this excellent news yesterday night. Between 6am to 6pm you don't need any convoy (still between Aswan and Abu-Simbel). If you neeed to travel at night time you have to pay a ''private convoy'' for exemple 200 euros between Luxor and Edfu.

I will be in Egypt this June and will be travelling in between Luxor and Sakala (Hurghada). I would like to know if this information is still accurate, if I can travel between Luxor and Hurghada without convoy if it is between the hour of 6am - 6pm?

I am going to be in Egypt in June this year and will be needing to travel between Luxor and Sakala (Hurghada). Is this information still accurate, will I need a convoy to travel between Luxor and Hurghada in June 2009 between the hours of 6am - 6pm?
