UPDATE FOR ALL TOURISTS ARRIVING IN MARSA ALAM FOR SUMMER 2015

As of June 2015 we can either deliver sim cards directly to your hotel, whether it is in Marsa Alam or in Hurghada.  

Or you can collect it at our airport  shop located immediately after you pass through customs. We can normally set it up for you in less than two minutes so you can start browsing the net or phoning home the moment you step out of the airport. 

In Marsa Alam we rush a sim card to your room for a delivery charge of just 5 to 10 euro (within 50km) and it will be with you

 the very same day.

We can also deliver to hotels further away - please check the price guide given on this page.  

In Hurghada the same fast service is offered at 10 euro for Hurghada hotels and 15 euro for hotels in El Gouna, Sahl Hasheesh and Makadi Bay.  

Sim cards of any size (normal, mini, micro or nano) are available and they are already activated and ready to use and it only takes a minute to get your phone, computer or ipad
operational.   Also - the connection is far better and cheaper than the wifi connection in the hotels - for more information read on. 

Either email steven@marsaalam.com or telephone Steven on +20 1010 4545 98.


NORMAL SITUATION

Most of us don't think about the  problem of connecting online during our holidays. We
rightly assume that if we need it set up it
will be a good connection for free or at
most only a few euros a day. But unfortunately only two hotels in Marsa Alam currently offer free internet and then only in the lobby area while most hotels charge very high prices with reports of up to 17 euros an hour being charged. What's worse is after shelling out all that cash most tourists find that the connection is a lot slower than they had hoped.


THE EASY SOLUTION  

Marsa Alam entrepreneur Steven is currently offering to deliver fast internet Egyptian Vodafone SIM cards for I phones, iPads, laptops, any smart phone or android, with up to 12 GB of browsing and downloads to your hotel for between 15  and 45 euros depending on the package (see below) plus delivery charges for some deliveries (see below). He also supplies sim cards for mobile phones as well as prepaid credit if you need it.  It couldn't be easier. Just email steven@marsaalam.com or telephone Steven on +20 1010 4545 98.

WHAT'S THE BIG ADVANTAGE ?


Vodafone's network has the best coverage in the Marsa Alam area of any mobile network and works in almost all areas of all resorts.  

You'll discover that internet charges via a hotel connection are phenomenal - usually around 6 euro per hour or more - and similarly phone calls from your U.K. sim card or from a hotel will normally cost you many euros for just a few minutes.  Why do they charge so much ?  Well, when you are surrounded by the desert, they think you don't have any other options.
