Those who are planning to get a flight to South Africa for this year’s World Cup may wish to take note of some new travel money advice from a credit card provider.

Football fans who are planning a trip to South Africa for the upcoming World Cup may do well to consider some new travel tips from a credit card firm.

Visa has issued a number of suggestions for holidaymakers looking to make the most of their money during their stay in South Africa.

It suggests that during the international sporting event, several merchants are likely to offer discounts or other special deals, which may be worth taking advantage of.

Exchanging money for rand before leaving is also wise, as it is advisable to always carry a small amount of local currency in case of an emergency.

For those planning to use their debit cards or credit cards while on holiday, it is also a good idea to inform the bank before leaving to ensure there are no issues with transactions.

Thomson Sport also sponsored a guide to the World Cup for those who have booked flights to South Africa to support their national team in June.

Fans’ Guide to the World Cup 2010, written by award-winning sports journalist Harry Harris, pledges to provide plenty of information about all the qualifying teams.
