LONDON, July 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The affordable travel experts at CheapFlightsFinder.com have been as glued to the latest action at the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia as everyone else – but they've also noticed some very interesting activity relating to competing nations and their travel searching activity!
It seems that whenever a country's team achieves big success at the World Cup, fans are eagerly looking for flights to Russia. Destinations around the world have undergone a significant spike just as each country's team reaches the quarter finals or qualifies.
Following England's success at the tournament, CheapFlightsFinder.com reported a spike of 148% in searches of cheap flights from England to Russia, while France's searches spiked by 135%. Sweden's flight finders were seemingly also keen to visit, with a spike of 112% after their own achievements at the World Cup – while Croatia's searches peaked at an increase of 93% and Belgium at 78%.
There were other countries which also seemed keen to find their way to the country, with Brazil's flight searches for Russia spiking by some 56%, and Uruguay's flight searches spiking by 41%.
It is perhaps unsurprising that football fans are keen to visit the country which is hosting such an internationally renowned sporting event – but these searches show a real intent to research options and perhaps even take the plunge.
"The data shows that fans are clearly very keen to travel in person to the host city and support their teams during the last phases of this exciting tournament," says Cheap Flights Finder CEO Shahab Siddiqui.
"In light of these results we have launched an infographic guide to assist consumers in locating the cheapest flights to Russia in time for the world cup final from multiple global airports."
