Turn a game into a getaway with AFL Travel

"The organisation and efficiency from my original email to when we landed back in Melbourne was excellent." - happy AFL Travel customer

When it comes to assessing the commitment levels of sporting fans in Australia, it’s hard to argue with the assertion that AFL fans are the most dedicated of any other football code. AFL fans will stop at nothing to be front and centre of the crowd on game day, often travelling from the furthest corners of the country to cheer their team on to sporting glory.

Such diehard fans need a place to go where their travel needs are taken care of with simple efficiency and exceptional customer service; where they can book their match tickets, travel and accommodation with ease. That’s where AFL Travel comes in; powered by Virgin Australia Holidays, the official holiday program of the AFL, AFL Travel offers a one-stop shop for all your travel needs when heading out to support your team at their next away game.
