New York City’s Official Destination Marketing Organization and Convention and Visitors Bureau Introduces New Name and Brand Identity System

#whatsgoodnyc social campaign launches today harnessing the “opinion power” of millions of new yorkers.

New York City (March 28, 2023) — At its Annual Meeting today, President and CEO Fred Dixon debuted the new name and brand identity of the City’s official destination marketing organization and convention and visitors bureau for the five boroughs of New York City: New York City Tourism + Convention s. The destination’s new brand system aimed at travelers from around the world includes a new brand strategy and comprehensive visual identity system comprising a new logo, color standards, typography, art direction and graphic elements.

The debut of the new name and brand system was launched in conjunction with a social campaign, #WHATSGOODNYC, harnessing the “opinion power” of the City’s 8.5 million New Yorkers, offering them a chance to share their points of view on “what’s good” and what to experience across the City’s five boroughs. Tapping into travelers’ desire for authentic experiences, the foundation and strength of the new branding comes from its genuine, enthusiastic perspectives shared by a diverse mix of locals, highlighting New York City Tourism + Conventions’ role in amplifying these opinions to help travelers have a richer experience in NYC. The campaign offers insights, tips, recommended activities and excursions through various channels to engage and encourage visitors and locals to explore all New York City has to offer.

“With over 56 million visitors to the five boroughs last year, fueling tens of billions of dollars in spending for our local economy New York City is not coming back, it is back,” said New York City Mayor Eric Adams . “New York City Tourism + Conventions’ new branding reflects our city’s energy and spirit and will make sure everyone knows that there’s never been a better time to visit the greatest city in the world. I’m a five-borough mayor, and I look forward to seeing visitors all over the Big Apple this year.”   “The introduction of our new name and brand system marks a significant moment for our organization,” said Fred Dixon, President and CEO of New York City Tourism + Conventions . “Our new brand captures the essence of New York City in its entirety: an ever-expansive destination that offers diverse and authentic experiences that enrich the traveler and benefit all New Yorkers. This shift strategically positions us to continue leading the City’s nearly $65 billion tourism economy. It makes clear our purpose and mission as the official tourism organization for one of the world’s greatest destinations—our commitment to New York City has never been greater.”

“We are excited about this brand evolution and for the organization’s continued stewardship of New York City’s tourism industry,” said Charles Flateman, New York City Tourism + Conventions Board Chair and Executive Vice President of The Shubert Organization . “The creation of this new brand system was informed and supported by dozens of organizations and hundreds of individuals from the tourism industry including members and visitors alike. We look forward to working with all our partners and stakeholders to further the work of connecting local businesses, visitors and residents, and spreading the benefits of tourism across all five boroughs.”

NYC-based global design consultancy 2x4 served as the creative partner on the extensive process to determine the new name and brand strategy, ensuring a name that represents the organization’s mission clearly to the travel industry and consumers: to support New York City’s travel and tourism economy and provide a deeper, richer, more authentic experience of New York City for visitors. The structure, mission and global network of New York City Tourism + Conventions  remains the same as that of NYC & Company.

“We are an organization comprising passionate New Yorkers who have deeply informed our new brand and how it comes to life to engage travelers from around the world,” said Nancy Mammana, Chief Marketing Officer of New York City Tourism + Conventions . “Our new strategic direction, which includes a new website launching in May (nyctourism.com), social channels and media assets, will drive future marketing campaigns, content and partnerships. Through these exciting new changes, our intention is to create even greater engagement and value for travelers, partners and other stakeholders in a way that also ensures New York City remains a premier destination for business and leisure travel.”   

“When creating the visual identity system, we wanted to reflect the fabric of New York City, and the rhythm and energy that locals and tourists alike love most about it,” said Elan Cole, Executive Vice President, Co-Lead, Creative/Content for New York City Tourism + Conventions . “In collaboration with our creative partners at 2x4, we created a system that reflects New York City itself, a place of unmatched diversity and culture that draws in and welcomes people from all over the world. Our new system represents this vibrancy and the abundance of experiences in neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs.”

The brand’s visual identity system is inspired by the graphic heritage of the City as well as the works of artists and designers who themselves were inspired by the five boroughs. The irregular shapes and intersections of the graphic elements and the logo—references to horizontal streets and vertical building shapes—play with contrast, expansion and contraction to reflect the City’s energy. The secondary color palette surveys New York City icons and associations, from Liberty Green, Taxi Yellow and Ferry Orange to Lox Pink, Brownstone and Rockaway Sand. More details are available at nyctourism.com/rebrand.

New social media handles @nyctourism and @nyctourismnews will launch across Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn encouraging New Yorkers and travelers alike to engage and share using the hashtag #WhatsGoodNYC. 

New York City’s economic recovery continued in 2022 with over 56 million travelers arriving in the City—a 72.5% increase over 2021. The City saw 9.4 million international travelers visit the five boroughs—more than triple the number in 2021. The City also hosted over 4 million business travelers signaling the return of this important segment. This activity marks the return of 85% of the City’s record 2019 visitation levels. The City remains on track to welcome 63.3 million visitors in 2023. The pace of tourism’s rebound helps fuel New York City’s economic recovery having supported approximately 340,000 jobs in the full leisure and hospitality sector, more than $40 billion in direct visitor spending and approximately $60 billion in total economic impact for 2022.

About New York City Tourism + Conventions : New York City Tourism + Conventions is the official destination marketing organization and convention and visitors bureau for the City of New York, dedicated to maximizing travel and tourism opportunities throughout the five boroughs, building economic prosperity and spreading the positive image of New York City worldwide.

Columbus outshines major cities in visitors, but experts urge caution in interpreting numbers

Columbus welcomed more visitors in 2023 than such tourist destinations as Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Miami.

That is according to data from Experience Columbus, the city's tourism marketing agency. 

Ohio's capital city welcomed 51.2 million visitors, according to the organization's data. That would mean Columbus saw more visitors than a typical year for Los Angeles' 49.1 million, Las Vegas' 40.8 million and Miami's 27.2 million, according to their respective tourism bureaus .

But those numbers should be looked at with a healthy bit of skepticism, said Dan McCole, an industry expert and an associate professor of tourism with Michigan State University and MSU Extension.

“These different consulting companies all have different methodologies in which they land at final numbers, which can ultimately skew the results when attempting to compare quantities across different cities,” McCole said.

At its annual TourismUS meeting in May, Experience Columbus unveiled its latest report, proudly announcing that more than 50 million visitors came to the city in 2023. This milestone was highlighted on the first slide of the presentation.

Since 2012, Experience Columbus has engaged Longwoods International, a tourism consulting company, to compile its annual visitor statistics. 

“I fully support the data we have; it comes from a trusted source and has been historically accurate.” Experience Columbus President and CEO Brian Ross said in an interview with The Dispatch after the May event.

Experience Columbus pays Longwoods $29,500 a year for this service. Longwoods, headquartered in Columbus, has more than 175 clients and works with well over 100 destinations, including cities, states, regions and occasionally countries​​.

Longwoods uses the same methodology of reporting this data with all its clients, President and CEO Amir Eylon said.

"We're extremely confident in our estimation efforts and that 51.2 million figure," Eylon said. "We use a sophisticated and consistent modeling approach for all our clients that pulls from a substantial database."

Longwoods uses a method that involves analyzing responses from a large pool of surveys that covers about 250,000 trips Americans took. The survey asks travelers various questions about their experiences. 

For Columbus, about 1,600 of these survey responses were specifically about trips to the city. Those 1,600 responses were then used to estimate that Columbus had 51.2 million visitors in 2023, based on a few factors including overnight and day trips.

Overnight trips involve staying away from home for at least one night, while day trips are defined as trips that do not include an overnight stay and require traveling at least 50 miles from home to Columbus.

Rather than just reporting unique visitors, Longwoods presents "person trips," which counts all individuals involved in the trips. This metric can include multiple trips made by the same people in a year.

For example, if someone comes to Columbus for a concert in February and then for a convention in August, they're counted twice.

While that may help explain Columbus' 51.2 million visitor figure, McCole said it may not make much sense to compare such a number to other cities.

"Such aggregated statistics, while helpful for broad evaluations, can mislead stakeholders about the true economic impact of tourism on the local economy, especially when compared nationally when different methodologies are being implemented," he said. 

McCole likened the practice of comparing visitor numbers to comparing apples to oranges, describing the data inconsistencies across different destinations. 

Experience Columbus uses visitor statistics predominantly for internal purposes to understand how a growth in tourism has contributed to the local economy, Ross said.

“We’re not really concerned about how we stack up with other destinations across the country, but more so on the year over year changes,” Ross said.

While the numbers may mostly be used internally as Ross said, Experience Columbus prominently promotes them on the organization's website and in other public materials.

"Many cities looking to establish themselves as key destinations also use this tourism data as marketing material," said Alexander Quinn, senior director of research, Northern California at Jones Lang LaSalle, a global real estate service company.

Quinn also pointed out that due to the differing statistical methodologies used across destinations, it becomes extremely challenging to compare tourism numbers on a standardized basis between cities.

Some Caribbean islands see almost 'total destruction' after Hurricane Beryl

city tourism agency

A more complete picture emerged Wednesday of the extensive damage wrought by Hurricane Beryl's trek across the Windward Islands, revealing destruction and at least seven deaths.

At least three islands report more than 90% of the homes and buildings either destroyed or severely damaged, the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency reported Wednesday . All three are within the chain of Grenadine Islands, where Beryl roared into the Caribbean on the southern end of the Windwards, between St. Vincent and Grenada.

With 19 participating states across the Caribbean , the agency was helping coordinate disaster response on Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines even as it continued to track Beryl’s movements across Jamaica, Cayman Islands and Belize. The eye of Beryl, still a Category 4 storm, raked Jamaica's coast Wednesday afternoon and was expected to pass near the Cayman Islands Thursday morning, before making landfall in the Yucatan on Friday morning.

The damage estimates for the Windwards – where Beryl made landfall over Carriacou – are only "a very preliminary look," said Elizabeth Riley, the disaster management agency's executive director. Beryl struck the islands with sustained winds of 150 mph and higher gusts on Monday, and the National Hurricane Center had warned that winds could be up to 30% higher on the tops of hills and mountains.

The impacts to the Grenadine Islands are "quite significant," Riley said, leaving residents exposed and vulnerable. Even as recovery efforts began, a tropical wave brought rain and gusty winds Wednesday to the suffering residents.

In a briefing late Tuesday after spending more than two hours in a helicopter provided by the government of St. Lucia, Grenada Prime Minister Dickon Mitchell described "total destruction" on the islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique.

"There's really nothing that can prepare you to see this level of destruction," Mitchell said. "It is almost Armageddon-like, almost total damage and destruction of all buildings. Complete devastation and destruction of agriculture. Complete and total destruction of the natural environment."

"There is literally no vegetation left anywhere on the island of Carriacou; the mangroves are totally destroyed, the boats and the marinas significantly damaged," he said. "There is almost complete destruction of the electrical grid system in Carriacou. The entire communication system is completely destroyed."

However, Mitchell added, he'd been heartened by the volunteers "showing true Grenadian spirit" by arriving from other less damaged areas in boats and fishing vessels to begin delivering relief supplies to those affected.

Beryl damage updates

The following are the preliminary assessments Riley listed:

Carriacou, Grenada

  • The total population of 6,081 has been affected, so shelter is "a significant consideration."
  • Majority of homes and buildings have been extensively damaged
  • Communications have been significantly compromised

Petite Martinique, Grenada

  • Estimated 80% of the houses and buildings extensively damaged or destroyed
  • 900 people affected
  • Majority of the island is sheltering in place

Canouan, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

  • 100% of the island's population (12,600) has been affected
  • An estimated 90% of the houses were damaged, either extensively or destroyed
  • Police station in Charlestown lost its roof

Union Island, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

  • Full population of 3,000 was affected by extensive damage
  • Estimated 98% of buildings, including houses badly damaged or destroyed
  • Airport control tower destroyed, hospital roof destroyed
  • Power plant received significant damage
  • Government assisting people who wish to evacuate

Mayreau, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

  • Total population of 300 people affected
  • 90% of the housing stock and buildings have been damaged or destroyed

Palm Island, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

  • Resort and desalination plant significantly damaged
  • More than 40 homes with damage, a number expected to rise
  • Confirmed significant damage to the fishing sector
  • More than 200 boats damaged
  • Significant damage to the coastal infrastructure, particularly along the south coast 
  • Partial road obstruction
  • Significant damage on southern end 

Trinidad and Tobago

  • Power outages
  • Water disruption on Tobago 
  • Roadway blockages on both islands

Bequia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

  • An estimated 10% of the homes and buildings suffered roof damage
  • Airport and runway are usable
  • Minimal damages reported

Mitchell, Grenada's prime minister, said the island's northernmost parish, Saint Patrick suffered significant damage. The parishes of Saint Andrew, Saint Mark and Saint John also suffered much more damage than the parishes of Saint George and Saint David.

"It is clear that agriculture has taken quite a battering. It is clear that many persons have lost their roofs," Mitchell said. "It is clear, in some instances, many people have lost their entire homes."

Best Online Travel Agencies

Booking.com is our top choice for making your trip arrangements

city tourism agency

We independently evaluate all recommended products and services. If you click on links we provide, we may receive compensation. Learn more .

Planning a trip can be easier through an online travel agency than if you handle each aspect of the planning separately. You can book hotels, air travel, rental cars, and more through a single site, and booking everything together sometimes results in discounts. By inputting a destination, a range of dates, and other preferences, you will see a list of options for each aspect of travel.

The best online travel agencies offer options from the largest number of airlines, hotels, car rental agencies, and more. Look for sites that offer discounts for combining reservations for different aspects of your trip. For example, the best sites will have lower rates if you book both plane tickets and a hotel through their services. The best sites also provide reviews from customers who actually have booked through the service. These are our top picks.

Final Verdict

Frequently asked questions, methodology, best overall : booking.com.

 Booking.com

This industry leader offers one of the most comprehensive trip planning platforms on the Internet.

Lots of options to choose from

Interface is easy to use

Numerous filters to customize your search

Tricky to tell whether changes/cancellations can be made with Booking.com or the vendor directly

Booking.com was founded in 1996 and has grown into an industry leader that stands out for being one of the most comprehensive trip planning platforms out there. From one website, you can compare and book accommodations, flights (including one-way and multi-city flights), sightseeing activities, and even airport taxis. The website lists more than 28 million accommodation options, from hotels, hostels, and B&Bs to vacation homes and luxury resorts—you can browse more choices per destination on Booking.com than other online travel agencies. The website also performs well on cost and typically returns lower-than-average prices for flights and hotels. 

Booking.com's interface is also easy to use. On the home page, search for a hotel by entering your chosen destination and dates. Then, use the extensive list of filters—such as price range and distance from the city center—to narrow the results down and find the best fit. You can also search for a specific hotel, or seek inspiration by clicking through options grouped by destination or property type or by topic such as the country’s best Michelin-starred hotel restaurants or the top cities for vegan travelers. The flights, car rental, and other tabs are just as intuitive. 

Best Budget : Skyscanner

 Skyscanner

You can compare prices across airlines, hotels, and car rentals.

Simple interface

Option to toggle searches between specific dates or by monthly calendars

Search Everywhere button is great for spontaneous planners

Extra clicks are required to make a final purchase

Must read fine print for changes/cancellations—may need to deal directly with the vendor

Ads on the sidebar can be distracting

Find deals on airfare, hotels, and car rentals with an aggregator site like Skyscanner , which uses a metasearch engine to compare prices from all online travel agencies and the airline, hotel, or car rental company in question. Run searches with fixed dates, opt to compare airfare prices month to month, or click “Cheapest Month.” Searches also include options for nearby airports or non-stop flights only. With hotel searches, you can choose to select only from properties with free cancellation, a cleanliness rating of 4.5/5 or higher, or 3- or 4-starred hotels only. Car rental searches include an option to select “return car to different location.”

Once you’ve found the best rate, click on the link to be redirected to the third-party site to make your booking. Feeling spontaneous? The Search Everywhere button on the homepage offers a list of the cheapest flight deals for destinations both locally and across the world—just plug in your departure airport first.

Best Price Predictor : Hopper

The company claims a 95 percent accuracy rate at predicting when flights and hotel rates will be cheapest.

Color-coded system makes it easy to determine cheapest days to buy

App is easy to use

Option to track flights and receive alerts when the best time to buy arises

Some have mentioned the app functions better as a research tool than a booking tool

Unclear whether Hopper will price match if you find a cheaper flight elsewhere

Hopper is a travel app available on iOS and Android that aims to help travelers save on airfare by usng historical data and their own algorithm to predict when flights will be cheapest. Just type in where and when you’d like to fly and Hopper will present you with a color-coded pricing calendar indicating how much tickets are likely to cost. (Green is the least expensive, then yellow, orange, and red for most expensive.) Hopper will also recommend you either buy now or wait, or you can choose to watch a trip and receive notifications on the best time to buy. In addition, the app has expanded to offer hotel and car rental price predictions, too.

Some newer features since the app’s inception in 2009 include an option to freeze a price for a limited time—for an extra fee—as well as exclusive app-only discounts. Hopper is free to download, and you can choose to book directly through the app, though some users mentioned they use Hopper as more of a research tool before booking directly with the airline or hotel. The company claims a 95 percent accuracy rate at predicting flight rates up to a year ahead.

Most Innovative : Kiwi.com

This metasearch engine scours the web to piece together the ideal itinerary using planes, trains, buses, and more.

Creative itineraries get you where you need to go, especially if you’ve got a multi-stop trip

Kiwi Guarantee offers rebooking or cancellation protections

Nomad option appeals to travelers with a lot of flexibility

Creative itineraries mean you may not fly out of the same airport you flew into

Kiwi Guarantee has an additional fee

Charges all-in-one fee for booking flights, trains, buses (though you can always purchase a la carte)

Travelers planning multi-city destinations and seeking a bargain, as well as those looking to take planes, trains, and automobiles to get there, might consider Kiwi . Kiwi is a metasearch engine that scours and pieces together itineraries from various airlines (even if they don’t have a codeshare agreement), considers multiple airports (even if your arrival airport is different from departure), and offers booking options, whether you’re looking at very specific dates or more general ones (up to 60 nights).

Some will find the ability to make multiple bookings for a particular trip more convenient than going at it manually several different times, though note that you must opt into the Kiwi Guarantee program to access rebooking and refund protections should your reservation change or be canceled. Kiwi’s Nomad option allows you to plug in a bunch of destinations you’d like to visit and the length of your intended stay, and the website will churn out the most affordable itineraries for review.

Best for Eco-Conscious : Kind Traveler

A give-and-get business model means booking accommodations with exclusive perks, a donation to environmental organizations, and more.

All participating hotels include a local give-back component

Exclusive savings and perks

Participating hotels are located in some of the most beautiful places in the world

Inventory is much smaller compared to other booking platforms

Some of the amenities mentioned are based on availability only

In 2022, Kind Traveler (an online trave agency focused on hotel bookings) announced an increase in environmentally and socially conscious hotels, charity donations, voluntourism opportunities, and additional perks like waived resort fees or a welcome amenity.

Unlock exclusive hotel rates and perks from participating Kind Traveler hotels with a minimum $10/night minimum donation to a local charity. For example, stay at the Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives and receive up to $33 off the nightly rate and perks such as a food and beverage credit and an Earth Lab or Alchemy Bar workshop when you make a donation to Manta Trust. The organization funds coastal research to protect the island nation’s large yet fragile population of reef mantas.

Select from more than 140 participating hotels from the Hawaiian Islands to Bozeman, Montana, and the Maldives. Charities include wildlife, human rights, arts, education, and environmental preservation organizations.

Best for Social Impact : I Like Local

Choose from a host of travel experiences with the peace of mind that 100 percent of the cost goes directly to local partners.

Social impact mission woven into organization’s business model

Immersive experiences led by local guides

Range of experiences offered

May not be best fit for those seeking upscale, luxury experiences and stays

Can’t sort experiences by a list of countries (though an interactive map is available)

No experiences outside of Africa and Asia

For an online travel agency with a booking platform designed to route dollars spent directly to the communities travelers intend to visit, consider I Like Local . Visit the website to browse a host of travel experiences in countries including Indonesia, Kenya, and Cambodia. Experiences include homestays and farmstays as well as wellness and culturally oriented experiences—from cooking and cycling tours to weaving classes.

To search for an experience, select from drop-down items like travel dates and experience categories, or view a global map and click on a country to view experiences that way.

The platform got its start in 2014 and has grown to 4,000 local hosts across nearly 20 countries. As a social impact organization, 100 percent of each booking fee goes to local hosts. To date, 16,000 travelers have booked with I Like Local.

Best for Design-Forward Homestays : Plum Guide

Browse and book seriously vetted, design-forward vacation homes.

Highly curated inventory of vacation rentals across the world

Design-forward

Thorough vetting process

Does not publish guest reviews

Other platforms have homes available across more destinations

When it comes to booking a vacation home, serviced apartment, or condo, travelers are spoiled for choice. Plum Guide is an online travel agency that specializes in accommodations—though not just any home makes its directory. The company claims that each potential home listed on its site must jump through 150 hoops to be included, from internet speed and mattress and pillow quality to the showers’ water pressure and the home’s proximity to dining, shopping, and attractions.

Search by a featured collection on the website such as “ pet-friendly homes ” or “one-of-a-kind homes in Palm Springs.” Scroll to the bottom of its homepage to view its top destinations, as well as a list of all destinations where Plum Guide homes are available, including Barbados, Mexico, Portugal, Switzerland, the U.S., and Turkey. Note: From the top right-hand corner of the site, use the dropdown menu to select currency of choice.

As long as you know what you value most out of your travel experience—such as affordability, social impact, or luxe accommodations—there’s an online travel agency to help plan your next trip. Be sure to read the fine print, as some agencies are third-party websites and not direct vendors. If you're not sure where to start, Booking.com is your best bet for a smooth user experience and hard-to-beat offers on flights, hotels, and other travel arrangements.

What Is the Biggest Travel Agency?

Our choice for best overall, Booking.com, is known as an industry leader with listings for all major hotels, airlines, car rental companies, and more. It boasts more choices for accommodations per destination than any other site, and we found its interface to be user-friendly.

Are Online Travel Agencies Worth It?

This depends on your needs and priorities. The best online travel agencies certainly can save time by booking everything all at once. However, if you're someone who is good at haggling and enjoys the details of planning a trip, you might be able to find better deals by reaching out to hotels or other destinations and speaking to someone personally.

Is It Cheaper to Book Online Than With a Travel Agent?

Not always. A travel agent you know and trust should have the experience and connections to find deals that can match or surpass what you'll find online. Additionally, if something goes wrong, travel agents provide you with an actual person you can use as an advocate to correct the problem . But if you don't have access to a good travel agent, online sites still provide plenty of ways to streamline planning and save money .

We considered dozens of online travel agencies and narrowed down the options based on user experience, volume and quality of inventory, unique offerings and specials, and customer reviews. We also assessed travel companies’ environmentally and socially conscious policies.

How can I get to Berlin for the Euro 2024 final?

E ngland football fans wanting to be in Berlin for Sunday’s Euro 2024 final have limited and expensive direct-flight options, but there are a number of other ways to reach the German capital.

Here the PA news agency identifies six possible alternative routes to get to the city in time for the big match.

All times are local.

Driving means once supporters reach mainland Europe, they are not at the mercy of airlines, train operators or other transport providers.

After reaching Calais in northern France by ferry or Eurotunnel train, it takes about 10 hours to drive to Berlin, passing cities such as Antwerp in Belgium, Eindhoven in the Netherlands and Dortmund and Hanover in Germany.

P&O Ferries has sailings from £91 on Saturday, while the cost of petrol for the journey from Calais to Berlin would be about £95.

It may be worth keeping an eye on car-sharing website BlaBlaCar in case anyone heading to Berlin offers space in their vehicle.

It is possible to reach Berlin by rail from London St Pancras.

The fastest route is by Eurostar to Brussels, Belgium, take an ICE train to Cologne, Germany and another ICE service to Berlin.

This can be done on Saturday, leaving St Pancras at 8.16am and arriving in Berlin nine hours and 46 minutes later at 7.02pm, at a cost of £350 on booking website Trainline.

It is worth bearing in mind that many supporters already in Germany have complained about their journeys around the country being disrupted by unreliable train services.

Coach travel is possibly the cheapest way to reach Berlin for those without a car.

FlixBus is offering a journey from London Victoria to Berlin via a Dover to Calais ferry crossing, and a change of coach in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, for £131, leaving at 8am on Saturday, arriving 21 hours and 55 minutes later at 6.55am on Sunday.

– Indirect flight

There are many options to take connecting flights from the UK to Berlin.

EasyJet’s Worldwide service is selling a trip from Gatwick to Berlin via Olbia, Italy, on Saturday for £292.

It departs Gatwick at 1pm, arriving in Berlin eight hours and 35 minutes later at 10.35pm.

– A flight to another city

Flights between the UK and Berlin are in high demand, but there is better availability of flights to other cities in the region.

Wizz Air is selling seats on a flight from Luton to Prague, in the Czech Republic, on Saturday, departing at 6.15pm and arriving at 9.15pm.

After an overnight stay, supporters could take a train to Berlin on Sunday, departing at 6.28am and arriving at 10.42am, costing £53 on Trainline and leaving plenty of time to soak up the pre-match atmosphere.

This would mean a total journey time of 15 hours and 27 minutes.

– Chartering a flight

If money is no object, chartering a private jet for four people from Farnborough airport, Hampshire costs about £11,220 if booked through PrivateFly.
