Football fans preparing to board flights to South Africa should be careful that costs do not mount up too much during their stay, one organisation has advised.

People jetting off on flights to South Africa for a holiday that combines the World Cup with exploring the country should be careful that they do not overspend, according to one travel expert.Sainsbury’s Travel Money has advised fans to keep an eye on their outgoings with transport and accommodation costs likely to mount up quickly.

For example, the company found that the average cost of travel between the three cities hosting England’s group matches was £670.

Scott Gorman, head of Sainsbury’s Travel Money, warned: “Those hoping to follow England all the way to glory are going to be spending serious amounts of cash.”

He went on to recommend using a prepaid cash card as one way of keeping track of holiday spending.

With just under one week of the tournament gone, there is still plenty for football fans to look forward to in South Africa.

England supporters will no doubt be heading to Cape Town on Friday to watch their side take on Algeria in their second group match of the tournament.
