Holidaymakers now have even more choice when it comes to winter sun with flights to the Egyptian resort town departing Cardiff every Monday. Flights take off on 5th November 2018 and customers can enjoy staying at the best hotels TUI has to offer in one of Egypt’s most popular destinations such as the 5T TUI Magic Life Kalawy, Hurgahda.

Hurghada boasts year-round sunshine making it the ideal destination for a winter break.  The Red Sea resort has everything you need to escape the cold with beautiful beaches and warm weather making it perfect for popular activities such as snorkelling and diving.
