How to Book Your Dream Vacation to World Cup 2014 In Brazil

world cup 2014 packages 600x262 How to Book Your Dream Vacation to World Cup 2014 In Brazil

The anticipation and excitement is already building for FIFA World Cup 2014. And with the destination being Brazil, it’s a golden opportunity to go see the ultimate soccer tournament that’s practically on your doorstep.

If you are serious about traveling to Brazil next summer to support your country’s soccer team, or you want to just take in a variety of World Cup matches, now is the time to make your dreams come true — before the draw.

Here’s why. I’ve spoken to several of my contacts in Brazil and all of them say the same thing. The hotels are already being booked at a furious rate, which means that if you wait until the day of the draw (December 6) to book your travel plans, it’s going to be too late. You’ll be in the same boat as hundreds of thousands of other soccer fans around the world who’ll be searching for hours on websites for hotels in Brazil, and coming up empty.

Even though you don’t know what cities your team will be playing in during Brazil 2014, you can still book your hotels and World Cup match tickets before the draw takes place.

Here’s how:

World Soccer Talk has teamed up with Fandeavor to offer you all-inclusive World Cup packages. These include everything from transportation from the airport in Brazil to your hotel, match tickets to the games you want to go to, VIP hospitality at the matches, transportation to and from the game, airfare from city to city in Brazil to follow your team and sightseeing tours along the way.

Travel tip: If you’ve already been approved for match tickets, or you’re waiting on the upcoming FIFA lottery to find out what tickets you’ll get, you can still book your package now with Fandeavor before the draw and lottery happens. Select the custom package and mention your ticket situation on the form, and they’ll adjust the price accordingly.

Fandeavor offers two main choices — you can either Follow the USA Team or Build Your Own Custom Experience.

‘Follow The USA Team’ packages

With the different choices available under the ‘Follow the USA Team‘ options, you can go to Brazil to support the US Men’s National Team for either 1, 2 or all 3 group play matches. Or, if you’re feeling confident, you can book your package for all 7 World Cup matches if the USMNT makes it all the way to the final. (If the USMNT gets knocked out in an earlier round of the tournament, you can then decide to select different games instead).

In all of the packages, you’ll receive:

• Category 1 Ticket Inclusive Hospitality Packages,
• Access to an exclusive in-stadium hospitality — where complimentary beer, wine, drinks and food are served,
• Premium hotel accommodations,
• Complete ground transportation,
• Guided tour of host city, and
• Daily breakfast.

Fandeavor can also help you book a roundtrip flight to Brazil.

Depending on your preference, Fandeavor offers you a choice of 3 star to 5 star hotels, although the 5 star hotels are already almost sold out.

With the ‘Follow The USA Team‘ package, you’ll be able to support the red, white and blue without having to worry about getting to the games or trying to find tickets. Prices start at $3,495 per person for 2 people.

‘Build Your Own Custom Experience’ package

If you want to be as creative as you want to be, or you want to take in other matches, select the ‘Build Your Own Custom Experience‘ option. You can pick and choose the round of the tournament you want to go to, what star hotel you desire, your transportation needs, what cities you want to visit and more.

Fandeavor can then work with you to create your custom package. Let them know what you want, and they’ll do their best to accommodate you.

Interesting fact: Fandeavor was founded by former managers from Zappos, the online shoe and clothing store that prides itself on remarkable customer service. Fandeavor is completely legit, and is funded by Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.

By choosing Fandeavor, you remove all of the headaches that are involved in trying to book a World Cup trip — no scrambling for tickets, no spending hours and hours searching for hotels, no worries about safety or security, and no transportation headaches worrying how to get to your destination. All you have to remember is to book your roundtrip flight to Brazil (and Fandeavor can help you find discounted rates) and remember to bring money for lunch and dinner.

With the World Cup packages from Fandeavor, you can sit back and enjoy VIP treatment in Brazil to watch the world’s best footballers from the comfort of your Category 1 seat (which are guaranteed to be in the best part of the stadium).

Fandeavor is not for everyone. But if you want to be treated as a VIP and to make your World Cup dreams come true, this is for you. Book now.

The sense of urgency to sign up for the packages before the World Cup draw isn’t a sales gimmick. The number of people who are booking their travel well in advance of the tournament is unprecedented, which means fewer hotels to choose from and fewer seats available from city to city. Plus, Brazil is the type of destination where people are jumping at the opportunity to visit. When the draw is announced and the lottery is complete, tickets to the tournament will be extremely scarce. Don’t regret missing out on a once-in-a-lifetime dream vacation to see the World Cup in Brazil.

Hurry! Only a small number of packages are still available, and they’re sold on a first come first serve basis. Be sure to book before December 6!

Full disclosure: World Soccer Talk receives a small commission from Fandeavor for readers who sign up for the packages. We’ve vetted Fandeavor, and we firmly believe that this is a unique service that is ideal for soccer fans. Fandeavor partners with Cartan Global to assist in offering Official Ticket-Inclusive Hospitality for matches. Cartan is an authorized sub agent of Sportsmark in the USA. Sportsmark is appointed as Exclusive Sales Agent of MATCH Hospitality in the USA for the sale of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ Official Hospitality Programme.

    Let me know where you’re staying Gaffer and I’ll kip on the floor with an airbed.

  2. Jim says:

    Out of curiosity, what is World Soccer Talk’s cut of the $3495? I don’t mean that rudely, but you should be honest with your readers about this.

  3. Flyvanescence says:

    You had me til the price tag :-)

  4. Evan says:

    I wish I had enough money to go to the world cup.

  5. rej4sl says:

    They sure price normal folk out of these things. We actually have close friends in Sao Paulo if we could afford the ticets and airfare :)

  6. Frank says:

    This is an absurd price tag. I am planning my own World Cup experience and the entire thing will cost me and a few friends around 7K for 2 weeks, including tickets and accommodation. These people are making a killing off this $1150 per ticket per game for a ticket that has a $195 value. Wow

    • Christopher Harris says:

      Frank, it’s a VIP experience with exclusive in-stadium hospitality as well as guaranteed tickets to the game (before they sell out), as well as plenty of other perks. Planning the trip yourself will definitely curb costs, but it also adds the complication of worrying about whether you can find hotel accommodations and whether you’ll be able to get tickets.


    The Hotels in Brazil is very expensive, but the food is too Cheap!!
    You Can pay 1 Euro to buy a Beer Can!!At The Rodízio Restaurante( SteakHouse) you can pay 11 Euros to have a very hearty lunch!! There are o lot of different kinds of foods and restaurants to offer each tourist a comfort on ourselves meals!!
