    Just thinking ahead for our visit in April. Before the heavy restrictions on hand luggage I used to carry all my toiletries and sun creams in my hand luggage. Obviously I can't do this now.

    Is it worth bringing them with me or should I make do with minitures and buy the rest over there?

    Many thanks

    Hi Lyndsay - are you looking to take things over for your apartment as well?

    I would still be tempted to take most of my own though as you may have certain faves that you might not be able to get in Hurghada.

    If you are staying in a hotel then find out if they will supply daily soap, shampoo and shower gel. When we went to the Marriott we knew they supplied these and it saved a bit of extra weight and we made do with them and I just took my fave hair products etc.

    The other option is to take 100ml bottles in your hand luggage.

    Don't think it will fit in my hand luggage along with my LCD TV and Denby Dinner set lol

    Yes they are for the apartment.

    Has anyone an idea about how much things like shampoo and conditioner cost?

    Thanks

    ...its got to be cheaper to buy it out there than in UK then pay excessive baggage.

    That's the way I was thinking about it. Just trying to find out what is cheaper in Egypt and what i'll need to bring with me.

    Where is George? It's not like him not to be on!!
