World Cup Draw To Set Off a Frenzy of Travel Package Purchases

WINNIPEG, Dec. 2 /CNW/ - When the World Cup final draw is announced on Friday, December 4th, the tournament Round Robin schedule will be set, and football fans worldwide will be buying up travel packages to ensure they see their team live in South Africa.

Travel companies worldwide are preparing for many extremely busy days following the draw. One of those, sports travel specialists Roadtrips, is encouraging fans to book their World Cup Follow Your Team travel packages immediately, since hotel rooms and plane tickets are already becoming limited.

"There is no time like the present to book your World Cup travel packages if you want to see your team play," says Dave Guenther, President of Roadtrips. "With hundreds of thousands of football fans around the globe waiting for the final draw announcement before making their travel plans, getting a head start now is definitely the way to go."

Roadtrips prepared for the World Cup for several years in advance by acquiring top quality accommodations at some of Johannesburg and Cape Town's finest hotels, including the award winning Saxon Boutique Hotel and Spa in Johannesburg and The Cape Grace in Cape Town. That forethought is now paying dividends for Roadtrips' clients, as huge demand for premium hotel space has provided a rare opportunity for fans looking for hard to find rooms.

Roadtrips has custom packages available for any match, from Round Robin play through to the Championship Final match. Optional add-ons - like safaris, private guided tours and extra matches - are also available.

Follow Your Team package includes:

    -  13 nights accommodation at some of South Africa's finest hotels;

    -  Tickets to your team's three Round Robin matches;

    -  Hosted roundtrip transportation to each of your matches;

    -  Expert travel & concierge services from the Roadtrips At-Your-Service

    -  Custom options for safaris, private guided tours, additional travel
       services and unique African experiences.

Single game packages start from $3,000 per person based on double occupancy. For more information and rates on Roadtrips' World Cup packages and options, call a Roadtrips travel expert at 1-800-465-1765 or visit
