General FAQs

Why should I outsource my football trip with Homefans?
Because we take care of all the boring and practical things about organizing a football trip. You provide input for the composition of the trip and you are 100% part of the creative process to arrive at the ideal trip together. We work together with clubs and local fans to provide you with an unforgettable football trip. Last but not least: with our network of reliable, experienced local partners and clubs we can arrange things on spot that a traveler normally cannot get arranged quickly.
Do I get any free time?
Part of the experience of travelling is discovering things on your own. We design our itineraries with plenty of time to explore at your own pace, wandering around the city or kicking back on the beach. Check the trip pages and their detailed itineraries to suss out all the information of your football adventure.
Are your football trips safe?
Your football Bucket List often contains adventurous football destinations and matches. At every destination we travel to, we ensure that we can guarantee your safety. We will never send you to an unsafe destination. We also work with clubs and experienced local partners who will always help you in an emergency. With every group trip a team member of Homefans travels with the group and we only choose a destination if we really trust it.
How can you have local knowledge in so many destinations?
By traveling a lot ourselves of course! But certainly not only: our local knowledge comes from a network of carefully selected clubs and fans in all destinations where we offer football trips. These partners know exactly what is fun to do in their country, can arrange a guide or driver anywhere and don't shy away from the challenge of making your Travel Bucket List worthy! We are not a standard football travel agency, we work hard behind the scenes every season to organize unforgettable trips
I’m travelling alone – is that OK?
Absolutely! You will be in good company. 40% of our travelers are solo and love travelling the Homefans way. You’ll have the freedom you want with the added security of travelling in a group.
Are flights included?
We don't include international flights. Our travellers come from all over the world so everyone books their own flights and we all meet on day 1 of the football adventure. We love to help you find you the best flights though so just let our dedicated team know if you want some help by getting in touch via live chat at the bottom right of this page.
Is the whole group seated together in the stadium?
Depends on the destination. Some games are harder than the others and we will try our best to accommodate your group together. We can promise you and your friends will be seated in the same section of the stadium.
