A-Four wrote:Brian the 70% commission that the Dr states here is quite common knowledge. I remember it being always 50% throughout the past 20 years. We then got a situation where one or two factory owners were meeting coaches up in the King's Valley and started offering an amazing 70%, this happened some five years ago. Up until that time there was a common agreement set by ALL factory owners on the WB, that commission would be no more than 50%.
So it is just hearsay then (or heresy as I prefer to say).

The problem is there are too many people selling the same things and not enough tourists to sell them to.

This was also true when tourist numbers were much higher than they are now.

Its always been the case in Egypt generally that there are too many people in the tourist industry to support effectively.

The sad consequence is that they will do what they can to get the business.

Thats no good for the tourist who pays well over the odds or the factories as a whole because there just isnt enougfh business there.

Everyone loses.
