Flying to Egypt next week. Tried to change money into Egyptian pounds is proving impossible, been told by both Thomson and Thomas Cook to take only US dollars as Egyptian money is not allowed to be flown into the country. My questions are:
can I take sterling and change at the airport in Egypt without being fleeced?
Can i pay visa fee in sterling?
Literally only taking £50 each as we have no need to purchase anything except a snorkelling trip.
