  1. Hello there! We're in the process of getting everything sorted for our trip to Egypt (in pursuit of NBPNP). We went to well known travel agent who have not contacted me at all (apart from sending flight itinerary) with regards to hotels, tours & travel options in Egypt etc. We've got two months to sort these out. Being a "list" kinda girl I have stalked TripAdvisor for nice & affordable hotels, found some, booked them. We found flights for cheap with the shortest travel time. Medical cover is sorted - our medical aid covers emergency medical care while out of the country. Travel insurance - I found out that our credit card has got FREE travel insurance if you pay for the tickets via credit card, how awesome is that! I have to mention that our travel agent said that we'd have to sort out the insurance part ourselves, surely she should know and could have mentioned that most credit cards offer free insurance and that most medical aids covers you as well? The one thing I'm unsure about is the visa. Gooooooogle has not been very helpful on this part. I have however found a website that offers this service. They charge R600.00 for the two of us & it takes about 16 days for the visa to come through. I can't find anything on Hello Peter and just need to check if they legit. Can anyone vouch for them? Can we book our flights before getting the visas? Yes, it's a silly question but I need to put my husband at ease Spending money: we're planning on putting funds into the credit card to use over there. Our bank charges a maximum of R50.00 per international transaction, whether it's a swiped purchase or cash withdrawal. I think that's quite reasonable? In my mind this would be the safest way to travel with money? Is there anything I'm missing or does anyone have any tips?
