Hurghada has no regular public transportation. Routes for white minivans (Toyota Hiace) known as micro buses have been developed. Locals are the primary users, yet they are simple to utilize. It costs roughly 1-2 Egyptian pounds, and they stop and go anywhere you like, with the exception of 1-2 neighborhoods. Before you get in the car, ask the driver where you’re going.

It is not advisable for young ladies.


Hurghada taxi drivers have an amazing ability at recognizing visitors from a long distance away; gaze at the coming vehicle and it will stop for you – for a fee.

Before getting in, ask the driver whether he knows English and show him the desired location on a map. Because there are just a few streets with names, the destination is defined by neighboring places, such as a hotel. Discuss and agree on the total fee (not per passenger) with the driver: keep in mind that the price should be 5-10 Egyptian pounds within the same section of town and 20 Egyptian pounds while traveling downtown to Senzo mall, for example. Do not travel with the meter turned on; the driver has control over it. Jump in once the driver has agreed on a fee. Place yourself in front of the hotel.

Avoiding conflict with drivers is as simple as having the exact amount of money agreed upon at the outset, passing the money on at the destination, getting out and walking away; avoid fighting with drivers.

Another thing to keep in mind is that if you pay with a 5LE or 50LE note, drivers may and will attempt to swap it for a 50 Piastres note, after which they will want the original note that you have already paid with. Notes in piastres are smaller than notes in pounds. Sometimes the driver agrees to a 15LE charge and then, when you arrive, informs you he meant 50LE and his accent worsens.
