Travel metasearch site dealchecker.co.uk has started the countdown to the kick off of next year’s football World Cup by launching dedicated pages for the tournament.
The 2014 World Cup will take place in Brazil, meaning England fans wanting to see their team live will be on the lookout for the best deals for travel and accommodation.
The idea for the themed pages came from Dealchecker’s resident Brazil enthusiast Alice Mariscotti-Wyatt and her co-editor and fooball-fan Em Horrigan.
Mariscotti-Wyatt said: “The World Cup is an event that unites sports fans from across the globe.
“To help UK fan’s source the best value accommodation and flights for travel to Brazil, Dealchecker is working closely with a number of South American travel partners to offer football fans a ‘one stop shop’ for World Cup travel and destination advice ensuring they are in the know well before kick-off.”
The pages provide a tailored flight and accommodation search facility, goal updates, fixture lists, England match dates and dedicated destination guides for all 12 host cities.
When users click through to the relevant host city for their chosen matches there is a tailored hotel and flight search facility, fixture lists tailored to the host city, images and a destination.
Mark Attwell, Dealchecker managing director, said: “We are currently working with a number of South American flight and accommodation partners, including a new partnership with specialist South American flight brand esperanzatravel.co.uk.
“It’s great to have them on board as travel partners and our World Cup pages are tailor-made to their needs as the company currently offer flights from many UK airports to ten out of the 12 host cities.
“With 190 days to go there is certainly room for others to join our team of travel partners. Specialists in South America who are keen to reach out to this market should get in touch with us to see how Dealchecker can assist them with increased bookings and qualified leads from sports fans on the move next summer.”
