World Cup tourists 'should shop around'

Article content

6 April 2010

South Africa hotels may be bumping up their prices for the Fifa World Cup, but one industry expert believes those who "shop around" can get the best deals.

Travel editor for Lonely Planet, Tom Hall, commented the country is well prepared for the competition, although less can be said for some tourists hoping to visit.

He stated: "It's only two or three months until the start of the tournament and there are lots of people who aren't looking into the practicalities of going."

According to Mr Hall, travellers need to be sharp if they are going to be making the trip to support their nation's team for the sporting event this summer.

"Keep your ear to the ground," he explained, adding that individuals should look for South Africa hotels and accommodation that are not outlined in official programmes.

Minister of tourism for the country, Marthinus van Schalkwyk, recently announced South Africa hotels are pricing their services responsibly for the World Cup, with half not even adding a premium to their current rates.
