Football fans at Euro 2016 face high travel and hotel expenses

England football fans are set face rip-off price rises to fly to the Euro Cup this summer in France. Air fares for the highly-demanded matches have gone up, forcing up the total cost of rooting on British boys to over £1,000 a time.

A recent report ommissioned by the Plain Sailing Yacht Charter website suggests that cheapest direct flights to England’s match against Russia in Marseille, France, on 11th June, had already hit £430 previous week. And it will work if you fly out from Stansted at 6.20 in the morning with Ryanair and coming back the afternoon after the game.

The cheapest direct flights with British Airways on the same day stood at £681, as per a website named Skyscanner. easyJet prices were £447. The same flights for the days before the top kick-off could be cracked up for as little as £133. And if you fancy going for a January break in the coming weekend, the similar journey to Mediterranean port tolls less than £100.

Fans, who are to sit in Rome airport overnight on a twenty-six-hour journey from London, England to Marseille, France could have a ticket with the Italian airline Alitalia for £169. The weekend travel would be like going out on Friday and coming back on Sunday.

With the tolls of tickets as well as hotel prices also going up, fans face forking out 4 figures even before they have had a beer.

The top match between Wales and England in the northern French city of Lens on 16th June, involves flying to Paris, France, and then travelling hundred-twenty miles on public transport.
