 FAQ

Q: Are Flights Included in this package?

A: Yes, flights from London Heathrow to Sao Paulo and from Sao Paulo back to London Heathrow are included in the package. Please note flights to and from Brazil are overnight and so the day you arrive in Brazil and back into London will be 1 day later than the day you depart.

 

Q: What entry requirements are there to go to Brazil?

A: If you hold a full British passport, and your stay in Brazil will be 90 days or less, you do NOT require a visa to enter Brazil. However, your passport must have an ‘expiry date’ at least 6 months after the date you arrive. If you do not hold a full British passport then please contact Sports Travel Tours for advice on next steps.

 

Q: What do I need to know when I arrive in Brazil?

A: The most important thing to remember when you arrive at the border control point at the airport in Brazil is to ensure that the border official puts an official stamp in your passport. If your passport is not stamped, then, you MAY be fined when you leave.

 

Q: Are there any documents/information that I need to show at the point of entry?

A: At Brazil border control, you must be able to show information about the purpose of your visit, evidence you have enough money for your whole stay, details of your accommodation, evidence of return or onward travel. This means you should make sure you have your return flight details and confirmation number, the address of your hotel and confirmation number as well as be able to provide details of your trip, sightseeing tours, game and tailgate details.

 

Q: Are there any special vaccinations required for travel to Sau Paulo & Rio de Janeiro

A: No special vaccinations are required for travel to either Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro. Please consult your doctor if you have any health-related questions.

 

Q: What time can I check into my room?

A: Check in time at the hotel is from 3pm onwards. When you arrive at the hotel, you'll meet your tour host at our hospitality desk located in the lobby, and they will assist with the check in process. As you will arrive earlier than the check in time, the hotel will allow you to store your bags in a secure room until the room is ready, and you'll be free to start exploring the local area whilst this is being done.

 

Q: When/how will I get my game tickets?

A: All game tickets are expected to be mobile entry. You will need a cell phone with access to data (please ask your provider about international plans ahead of your trip). On arrival your tour host at the reception desk will assist you in downloading the ticket onto your phone. Please note, you will be provided with the exact location of your seat approximately 2 weeks prior to your departure, however we can only transfer your ticket when you arrive at the hotel in Brazil.

 

 Travel Insurance

We always recommend you take out Travel Insurance and below we've listed just some of the reasons why:

  1. Life is unpredictable. Some trips need to be cancelled.
    With the right travel insurance, you won't have to pay for a trip you are unable to take.
  2. Most lost luggage takes five days to return to its owner.
    Travel insurance provides coverage to replace needed items right away.
  3. Lost or forgotten medication?
    Travel insurance will assist you in locating a pharmacy to purchase a new prescription.
  4. Travelers stateside and abroad can become ill or injured during their trip.
    Travel insurance can provide peace of mind – especially for travel outside the United States, where many hospitals request cash payments in the thousands before treatment can even begin.
  5. Health insurance may not go the distance.
    The majority of health insurance (including Medicare), worker’s compensation insurance, third-party and personal liability policies don’t cover international travel. In fact, a closer look at the inside of your passport will reveal that the government recommends travel insurance when traveling outside the United States.
  6. In the event of a natural disaster, airline strike or act of terrorism, airlines will not refund the cost of your ticket. Travel Insurance plans can cover the cost and help you get home quickly and safely.
  7. Credit card coverage, homeowners and auto insurance, none of these provide sufficient coverage for travel. Even combined, they may not offset the cost of a medical emergency overseas.
  8. In the unlikely case of supplier default. If a cruise line, airline or other travel provider ceases operations, travel insurance saves you from paying for a trip you'll really never get to take.
  9. We all experience tough economic times.
    The loss of a job or other income might mean a trip planned in advance may have to wait. Travel insurance puts cash back into your hands when you need it most.
