Press Release Summary: Sports travel website research into Champions
League away game travel reveals that football fans are paying over the odds for
hotel and flight packages to watch their teams play abroad.

Press Release Body: London,England, February,06,2007 -- Football fans trust their
football club to provide football travel packages at affordable prices. In most
cases fan loyalty is not being rewarded with fans being charged exorbitant fees on
top of the hotel and flight costs. MATCHhotels research found these prices for
upcoming Champions League games:
AC Milan vs Arsenal - 2 night hotel stay and flight is 315 through Arsenal / Thomas
Cook. However, fans can book a 4 star hotel and fly with British Airways for only

Barcelona vs Celtic - 2 night hotel stay and flight is 459 through Celtic / Thomas
Cook. Fans can save 160 by booking a 4 star hotel and flight with easyJet
independently for only 299.

Football clubs and travel companies re-assure fans that should the game be called
off or postponed they will get their money back. However, fans should note that with
many companies this only applies when the game is called off or postponed due to
terrorism. Events more likely to occur such as fog, waterlogged pitch, crowd trouble
and floodlight failure are not covered.

Football fans can save money and book independent football travel at The site searches several hotel web sites for hotels near stadiums
and displays available accommodation on a map of selected the football stadium.
Accommodation is listed with precise distance information to the football stadium
and prices from several web sites allowing fans to compare prices and book the
cheapest rooms online in minutes. Director Ben Jackson commented, \"Football fans need to know that
there are alternatives to the travel packages offered by their clubs. Choosing a
cheap flight and quality hotel near the stadium is cheaper and offers more
flexibility than club travel packages. Our door is open to all football clubs that
want to work with us to provide their fans with cost effective travel options.
