Rugby fans ‘ripped off’ by Lions travel

BRITISH and Irish rugby fans are being “ripped off” by being forced to buy expensive travel packages if they want a ticket to see the Lions play in Australia, a watchdog has revealed.

Tickets for British or Irish supporters are only available through agents appointed by British and Irish Lions Ltd, the organisation running the tour, and they will only sell tickets as part of a package, Which? said.

The cheapest official flight and ticket package covering the three test matches against Australia, including a rugby shirt, is £2,499.

Alternatively, the consumer group suggested, fans could transfer £183 to an Australian friend or family member to cover the price of tickets and buy their own return flight and flights between cities for a total of £1,165 – saving £1,334.
