Could the Slovenian football team reduce the cost of your holiday?

Brits booking cheap flights to Slovenia this summer may see their travel plans refunded

Brits booking cheap flights to Slovenia this summer may see their travel plans refunded depending on the progress of the Slovenian team at this summer’s World Cup.

This is because of a new initiative from the Slovenia Tourist Board (STB), which will see British travellers’ holiday costs refunded in a ‘goals for hols’ promotion.

If the team reaches the quarter finals of the tournament in South Africa, holidaymakers travelling to Slovenia between March 10th and June 10th will receive 25 percent of the cost of their holiday if it is booked with a participating outlet.

This refund increases to 50 percent if Slovenia reach the semi finals, while tourists will receive back the entire cost of the holiday if the team gets to the World Cup final on July 11th.

STB director Dimitrij Piciga said the central European country boasts a variety of holiday options, from city breaks to more active excursions.

"It is a great destination. It has the Julian Alps [for] active holidays," he commented.

"Tourists also come to Ljubljana for a city break with culture and festivals."

According to research from First Rate Exchange Services, 22 million Brits will be heading to destinations in the eurozone this year.
