Venues4Africa creates dedicated World Cup accommodation listing pages.
Online PR News – 04-March-2010 – – Venues4Africa, a specialist accommodation guide featuring over 5,000 establishments in Southern Africa, has created dedicated listings pages featuring accommodation close to the stadiums where the World Cup football action will be taking place in 2010.
"Venues4Africa was born out of a recognised need for a comprehensive travel directory that covered all the corners of our beautiful country," says Shaun Macdonald, co-founder of Venues4Africa. "Our aim is to match travellers with the most suitable accommodation at the best prices. We've expanded the accommodation listings in our database significantly and we believe that the site is not only an excellent resource, but also a great booking engine too."
Helping visitors find their feet
Venues4Africa has recognised that the influx of tourists and football fans during the 2010 World Cup is creating another need. Many visitors will be experiencing South Africa for the first time. "Our local knowledge and on-the-ground experience enables us to advise visitors of the best and most-conveniently located places to stay during the World Cup."
The great thing about these listings pages is that they bring together a variety of accommodation options, and not just the mainstream hotels. This presents visitors with a number of choices at a variety of rates, so travellers are certain to find what they're looking for quickly and easily.
Deciding where to stay
Naturally, not all travellers' needs will be the same. Some may be travelling as families and might prefer quieter accommodation, slightly further away from the central areas. Although these guests may have to travel a bit further on match days, there are a number of benefits to choosing outlying venues, including more space and numerous family-friendly activities. Die-hard fans and the young at heart might prefer to be right in the thick of things and should therefore be considering centrally located hotels, guesthouses or bed and breakfasts.
"Although accommodation around all 10 stadia will be at a premium during the World Cup, we foresee there being a greater demand in urban areas with many fans choosing to base themselves in one place and travelling to see matches. This makes the logistics a lot easier," says Macdonald. "The beauty of Venues4Africa is that it allows you to create your own unique itinerary. Effectively, you can book accommodation to suit the way you're planning to travel."
To enable travellers to easily see what accommodation is available near the stadia, Venues4Africa has created special pages on the site which list accommodation in the surrounding areas. Incorporated into this search are maps which enable travellers to ascertain exactly where they'll be staying.
Venues4Africa helps you to book additional services too
Venues4Africa is ready to assist with supplementary services such as car hire and add-on trips for those wishing to explore the diverse sights and sounds of Southern Africa before or after the tournament.
