Visa has created an easy-reference travel guide that aims to give visitors the insight they need into South Africa to ensure that they are as well informed as possible.

Developed with the help of local experts from South Africa, the Visitors Guide: South Africa contains information on must-see heritage sites, museums, safari parks and other attractions as well as insight on local shopping and dining hot spots.

The guide offers information such as a football glossary and World Cup schedule, a list of qualified teams and helpful money and payment card tips.

Special merchant offers for Visa cardholders such as discounts at heritage sites, museums, parks and other attractions throughout South Africa are also included – designated by a small blue Visa card throughout the guide.

“We want to make sure people attending the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ have a memorable experience, so for fans travelling to South Africa we created this easy reference travel guide to help answer questions about the area and help them prepare for their trip,” said Antonio Lucio, Chief Marketing Officer of Visa Inc.

“To ensure any trip is a success, travellers must prepare in advance, especially when it comes to their money. When travelling internationally, it’s important to know what payment cards are accepted, the best way to exchange your money for local currency and what to do in an emergency.”
