Hey all, I would appreciate any input! I'm going from Egypt to Turkey next Feb, and I'm wanting a cheap option on how to get there. I've been looking at airlines, and they're kinda pricey, is there a cheap ferry or something, adn what airlines would you recommend? Thanks!

Well the problem that your having now is the war so overland travel between the 2 is gonna be sparse that could be a factor in the jackin of the prices.......I would maybe look into a couple short hops like Egypt to cyprus ad then to Rhodes and then to turkey antalya or something.....although from rhoades thats far east......Keep lookin but until things clear up in lebanon then I wouldent head that way........unless you wanna try your hand at warzone journalism

I flew from Munıch to Istanbul and then Istanbul to Caıro 3 weeks later usıng THY (Turkısh Aırlınes). It ran about 400US whıch ıs kınd of hıgh but was the best that I could fınd between the two countrıes wıthout goıng through Syrıa. There ıs supposed to be a ferry servıce from cyprus to port saıd (northern egypt port) but ı thınk ıt ıs suspended because the ferry company recommended ın Lonley planet never responded to my emaıl.
