Egyptian Currency

Egyptian Pound (LE) is the local currency with the code EGP.

The Egyptian Pound is mainly a paper currency and there are various denominations divided into Pounds and Piasters.

The smaller the denomination, the smaller its physical size.

In late 2016, Egypt let the Egyptian Pound float freely against the US Dollar causing the value of the Egyptian Pound to loose 50% of its value over night.

That is excellent for tourists and expats who wants to spend time in Hurghada and perhaps wants to rent an apartment in Hurghada to get a bang for their buck on top of our already low rental rates for all our services.

When you rent an apartment with us online, you can choose to pay for your Hurghada holiday rental using various payment options.
