South Africa 2010 World Cup Football fever is heating up – but unfortunately so are the flight prices.
Flights to South Africa from the UK for travel during the month long Tournament (11th June – 11th July 2010) have already reached as much as £4887 – such is the demand to be part of what is perhaps the most prestigious sporting event in the world.
But if you were hoping to be part of South Africa World Cup 2010, do not fear; cheaper options do exist. Using Skyscanner’s nifty indirect flight finder, you can find direct routes or mix and match your flights, using different airlines to get the best prices.
We’ve handpicked some deals to get you started:
Outbound: 19th June with South African Airways
Return: 20th July with South African Airways
Outbound: 10th June with bmi
Return: 13th July with bmi
£821 – Manchester to Cape Town
Outbound: 17th June with Emirates (via Dubai)
Return: 14th Jul with Emirates (via Dubai)
But if you want a piece of the footy action, you’d better be quick; fans are booking flights fast, and prices on these alternative routes will soon rise.
