World Cup fans 'may want to consider the Virgin Money credit card'

Football fans planning to follow their team to the World Cup this year may want to consider spreading the cost of the trip using a Virgin Money credit card, the card supplier has suggested.

This offers fans 0% for 16 months on balance transfers with a 2.98% fee. This rises to 16.6% at the end of the 0% offer.

The advice from Virgin Money comes as the credit card provider revealed England fans will spend up to £319 million if the team goes all the way to the final on July 10th, according to its Football Fans' Inflation Index.

This amounts to an average of £6,399 per fan.

According to Virgin Money, if the team gets through all three Group C games, England fans are likely to fork out a total of £2,445 in flights, tickets, accommodation, food and a new replica shirt for the tournament.

All purchases made on a Virgin credit card between £50 and £1,000 are covered against accidental damage or theft for up to 100 days from the date of purchase.
