Race is on to see England in World Cup football finals in South Africa

On Wednesday, England qualified for the football
World Cup finals in South Africa, so the scramble
for tickets and hotel beds is on.
Already, fans are finding independent travel
near impossible.
First, you have to get your ticket through
a ballot (you enter at fifa.com), so you won't necessarily
get a ticket for an England match.

Second, most accommodation has already been
block-booked (Fifa has taken hotels as far away as
Mauritius), and the remainder is hugely expensive,
as are flights.

Third, the final draw, to decide which match is in
which of the 10 stadiums, isn't until 4 December,
so if you book accommodation now you may
have to arrange transfers come December.

Instead, tour operators are proposing packages

of tickets and accommodation, using a "base

camp" strategy.

The two largest official companies selling packages

are Thomas Cook Sport and Thomson Sport. Book

with Thomson Sport (0845 1212018; thomsonsport.com)

and you'll be based in Cape Town, from where you'll

either fly or take a coach transfer to the stadiums

where England are playing.

Prices start from £2,560 for a five-night package

including flights, B&B accommodation in central

Cape Town, match transfers and

a ticket to one England match.

Thomas Cook Sport (0870 752 0924;

thomascooksport.com) has chosen Johannesburg as

its base, from where seven of the stadiums are

within four hours' driving distance (if a flight is

required there will be a supplement).

Packages start from £2,499, including flights,

five nights' room-only accommodation,

road transfers and one England ticket.
