A SWVL Kind of Summer: Egypt’s Leading Transportation Alternative is Making Trips to the Beach Easy

Sahel? Sharm? Gouna? Dahab?

In a year that has seen SWVL makes moves to conquer and serve parts of Africa, the leading alternative to transportation in Egypt has looked closer to home for its latest conquest – and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

You see, when summer rolls around each year, Cairenes looking to head to the nearest seaside town every weekend are faced with the endlessly tedious prospect of driving, or catching a rickety coach that looks like it hasn’t been cleaned since the 90s. SWVL, however, is taking that headache away with new dedicated roots from the capital to the North Coast, Sharm El Sheikh, Hurghada, Ras Sudr, Dahab and El Gouna, as well as trips from Alexandria to Marsa Matrouh.

Comfort, convenience and value-for-money aside, it all really just comes down to logic – in fact, that’s something you’ll be hearing, with the tagline for the new summer sprees translating to something along the lines of ‘Logically, travel with social.” And the logic extends to the timing, especially with the gloriously long Eid break on the horizon. While that for many signals a wet and wild holiday with friends, SWVL services are just on point for family trips too.

It’s as simple as that.
