Egypt will make changes to the all-inclusive system

Hotels in Egypt do not plan to abandon the all-inclusive system, but changes will be made.

“The all-inclusive format is great for families with children who like to sit by the pool and enjoy the buffet anytime. The decision is up to the hotels, and they continue to use the all-inclusive system, but with minor changes,” the head of Egypt Tourism Authority (ETA) Amr Elkadi.

According to him, many Egyptian hotels, in addition to the classic buffet, have added the option of visiting À la carte restaurants for visitors. “You can either visit the buffet or choose a restaurant in the hotel, for example, Italian, or Chinese, for which you also won’t pay extra,” he clarified.

The agency’s interlocutor noted that this format of food in hotels helps reduce the amount of food waste and solve the main problem of the buffet.

“In Arabic, we call this “haram” (from Arabic — “ban”). It is bad for all humanity when some people suffer and die of hunger, while others throw away food,” Elkadi concluded.

Last December, the chairman of the Association of Hoteliers and Managers of the Mediterranean, Kaan Kavaloglu, proposed abandoning the all-inclusive system and switching to an option where tourists choose only those options that they need — for example, giving up alcohol. Such proposals are regularly made by certain representatives of the tourism industry.
