This 2014 World Cup will take place in the fifth largest country in the world, a home to vast rain forests, cultural wonders, extraordinarily beautiful women and many champion football teams. Brazil will welcome thousands of football fans from all over the world with the opening match on 12 June, 2014. Sports lovers will enjoy competitions that will be held in 12 Brazilian cities, including the capital Brasilia, beautiful Rio de Janeiro and magnificent Sao Paulo. It is clear that one of the major sporting events won’t be the only reason for tourists to flock to Brazil this summer, so a tourist boom is expected. This is why travellers have to be extra careful when visiting the host country in the next few months.

Keep in mind, that you’re going to a foreign country where English is not as widely-spread as in many other countries. Note that you will be one of many thousands of tourists arriving to the state with the population of more than 190 million people. The airports, stadiums, streets will be overcrowded and public transportation system will be overloaded. Anything can happen in such situation – loss of money, travel delay, scheduled airline failure, personal possessions theft, etc. Protect yourself with the right travel insurance policy so nothing could spoil your trip and fun from watching a good competition.
