People taking a holiday in South Africa to support their football team in the 2010 World Cup will make the most of their experience.This is the opinion of Tom Hall, travel editor for Lonely Planet, who suggested that many individuals are to save extensively for the "trip of a lifetime".
"There is no lack of enthusiasm of people wanting to go to the World Cup," he remarked, adding that once tourists reach the country, it is exceedingly good value.
Mr Hall went on to say that sporting enthusiasts in the UK might be at an advantage over fans from other nations.
Britain has a range of competitive routes to South Africa, including flights from British Airways and Virgin that go through connections at Kenya and Dubai.
Virgin Money's Football Fans' Inflation Index estimates that England supporters will spend a combined £319 million over the course of the tournament if their team goes on to win.
