FIFA World Cup 2018

Hotel near the 2018 World Cup Football Championship

The next edition of the FIFA World Cup is all set to take place in Russia, between 14 June and 15 July, 2018. A total of 64 matches are scheduled across 12 venues in 11 cities, culminating in the finals at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. 

As it is with all previous World Cup tournaments, the event is sure to attract spectators, sports enthusiasts, support staff, journalists, and sundry others, from all over the world. The event is sure to bring in hordes of tourists as well, who would take the opportunity to visit Russia.

World Cup enthusiasts can also take advantage of a relaxation of the general visa policy that applies at other times. While attending a FIFA event is an enthralling experience, the challenge lies securing proper accommodation. The World Cup is as busy as it gets in terms of patronage, and too many people would be chasing a limited number of accommodation options. 

The trick to secure the best accommodation is to book early. FIFA World Cup dates are scheduled well in advance, and ticket sales have opened well in advance. The number of people scouting for accommodation increase with each passing day, resulting in rates shooting up and choices becoming increasingly limited.

Budget friendly accommodation

A strategy to book inexpensive and budget options are to seek accommodation options outside the city center, and or at a little distance away from the stadium.

Accommodation options nearer to the stadium would invariably tend to be booked well in advance, and cost high.

The cities where World Cup matches are scheduled, such as Moscow, Sochi, Kaliningrad, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Saint Petersburg, Samara, Volgograd, Yaroslavl, and Yekaterinburg already attract several tourists and have a strong infrastructure to support visitors.

Authorities would beef up public transportation during an important event such as a World Cup football match, making it possible to commute to the stadium even from afar. The caveat is to be prepared to be put up with delays and jostle with the crowd. 

Yet another strategy is to look beyond conventional hotels and apartments. Exploring home-stays, youth hostels, bed and breakfasts, couch surfing, and other alternate or innovative options may yield safe and comfortable accommodation option at reasonable prices.

When making reservations for accommodation for World Cup 20187 at Russia, factor in safety and comfort, over all other factors. Do not try to cut corners and compromise on these crucial ingredients, in the quest for cheap accommodation. Look for value rather than the price alone.

At times, a more expensive room closer to the venue may result in overall savings, when factoring in the cost of the commute. Likewise, paying extra for an option with breakfast included may be a good idea, both in terms of convenience and overall cost.

If travelling in a group, prepare to be flexible. If a room to accommodate the exact number of persons in the group is not available, or costs high, try sharing rooms, or splitting the group into two or more rooms.

The World Cup is peak season, so trying to cancel after booking may be foolhardy. Make up your mind, fix your itinerary, search for the best options, and grab a good offer as soon as you see it.
