We have teamed up with scheduled leisure airline Monarch to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of flights on the airline’s new route to Hurghada.

Flights to the Egyptian Red Sea resort take off this summer from Birmingham Airport.

Expect plenty of sunshine at this growing resort, which started life as a fishing village. There are plenty of holiday villages and hotels to choose from for your accommodation – something to suit most budgets.

And when you’re settled in there are miles of beaches to find a spot to relax on, or look for some adventure with plenty of facilities for scuba divers, sailors and those who enjoy some action on – or under – the water.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question:
