continue if the England team wins through to the next stage.

The figures suggest that a large proportion of the 40,000+ England fans
expected to go to Germany this June are opting for independent travel.
After all, it only takes approx 2 hours to get from Frankfurt to Nuremburg
by car, and just under 4 hours to continue on to Cologne - that’s only 6
hours between England matches in the first stage of the competition - and a
week’s car hire starts at just GBP126 fully inclusive (price as of 9 June

As well as offering a complete World Cup stage one guide on its website,
competitive rates all year round, freedom of choice with no cancellation or
amendment fees, a 24/7 free-phone customer support number and a price
