Official Travel Packages for Rugby World Cup 2015

27 February 2014

Official Travel Packages for Rugby World Cup 2015 on sale 3 March

Stephen “Beaver” Donald called up again to be All Blacks Tours Ambassador

From Monday 3 March All Blacks fans can book their place at Rugby World Cup 2015 and support the current World Champions as they look to make history and become the first team to achieve back- to- back Tournament wins.

One of the heroes of the last Rugby World Cup – former All Blacks first five Stephen Donald – is stepping up once again, this time as the All Blacks Tours Rugby World Cup 2015 Ambassador.

Donald knows more than anyone that you can’t beat being there. “Everyone knows my story – one minute I was white baiting, the next minute I took THAT phone call from Ted saying he needed me at Rugby World Cup 2011. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

“My advice to All Blacks fans is not to leave it to the last minute. This is going to be an incredible Tournament and the boys will be fired up to go back to back so they will be wanting as many Kiwis as possible, in the stands in black cheering them on.

“Your support will mean everything to the team when they are so far from home. I remember on tour looking around and seeing those black jerseys, it really makes a difference.”

Official Travel Packages for the Tournament will go on sale to the public from Monday through All Blacks Tours, New Zealand’s exclusive Official Travel Agent for Rugby World Cup 2015 (RWC 2015).

The much anticipated event, taking place in England and Wales in September and October 2015, promises to be popular with New Zealanders wanting to be part of the All Blacks campaign.

All Blacks Tours has a wide range of ticket-inclusive supporter packages on offer which include accommodation, flights, merchandise and more, as well as official RWC 2015 match tickets.

Fans wanting the true All Blacks experience can choose from eight fantastic Official All Blacks Supporter Tours, which take in all the big matches and also include a number of sightseeing options in Europe, as well as exclusive All Blacks Tours merchandise and access to the Official All Blacks supporter functions during the Tournament.

Alternatively, All Blacks Tours offers Ticket Packages for those who want the freedom to make their own plans around Rugby World Cup 2015. Choose from Accommodation and Ticket Packages which include official match tickets coupled with accommodation around match days, or Flight and Ticket Packages, which include return flights from New Zealand. Package prices start from $1,395 per person twin share.

All Blacks Tours has access to official match tickets for every game of the Tournament so that New Zealand fans can guarantee seats for all of the games they want to see, not just the All Blacks matches.

All Blacks Tours General Manager, David Caldwell, encourages fans to book early to avoid disappointment.

“The success of Rugby World Cup 2011 in New Zealand coupled with the All Blacks current unbeatable form means there is extremely high interest in the Tournament. We are expecting a large number of Kiwis will travel to England and Wales to experience what is shaping up to be the biggest sporting event in the world next year.”
