Good day Sir,

Motor vehicle hire is not a big problem at all.
As for tickets for all of the games, these are not a problem as we at Executive adventures have forseen that these problems can occur and have made contingency plans. We can also assist you with a guide in order for you to get you to your destination safely should you not come from South Africa

Please contact me at should you require any further assistance

Best regards

The official site:
How many match tickets will be allocated to the Lions and how will these tickets get distributed to the fans?
The administrative running of the tour is carried out by an entity called British Lions Limited (BLL), who are based in Dublin and whose Chief Executive is John Feehan. BLL have been working in conjunction with the South Africa Rugby Football Union (SARFU) to arrange the practicalities of the tour, ranging from ticket allocations, to hotel accommodation to sponsorship.

The allocation of tickets to BLL was decided by SARFU towards the end of 2007 shortly before the UK based travel agents were invited to apply for them.

With their allocation, BLL in turn appointed four Official Travel Agents (OTA's) to package the tickets with flights and accommodation to form official tours, which are now available on sale to the general public. Due to corporate commitments and the need to satisfy demand for tickets from “within” (i.e. the staff/families of the home unions etc), the final figure for the four OTA's breaks down to only 75% of the officially allocated tickets for UK based fans for each test match.

What this all ultimately means is that if you live in Britain or Ireland, the ONLY way to purchase match tickets officially is to buy them as part of a package from an OTA, and to this end any other method of acquiring tickets will not have been sanctioned by the BLL or SARFU.

Visit our tickets & travel page to find out more about tours offered by Gullivers, the OTA who we have chosen as our preferred travel partner for the 2009 tour.

Tickets are hard to come by as it had been snapped up very fast. Only four operators in South Africa have the lions share of tickets/packages. It would be best to buy your tickets in the UK or via the net. Then to hire a car is easy but you have to do it as soon as possible as all the Test cities are going to be busy since the Confederations Cup is at the same time. So move fast. Like in now. If you need further assistance contact us on
Hi Simon

The only tickets being sold at the moment are the VIP tickets. You can e-mail me directly at . We have great packages available at the moment but they are flying so if you could get back to me asap that would be great.

Hello
I hope you have been able to get the information you wanted from the above replies. I cannot assist you with the tickets, but a very good alternative for renting a car is . The added advantage of EuropCar is that you are able to do your booking (and I believe payment) in the UK and simply pick up the car this side.

Regards and enjoy the tour!
