All Blacks fans will be able to book their place at the 2015 Rugby World Cup from Monday.

The packages start from $1395 per person to watch the All Blacks play the eventual qualifier from Africa on September 24, 2015.

That does not include flights, but does include two nights accommodation in London.

At the other end of the scale is the complete tour - a 47-night trip to every All Black match at up to $37,945 per person, including flights and accommodation.

The packages will go on general sale on Monday.

Some rugby fans who pre-registered have been able to buy them since Wednesday.

There was strong interest with several packages already snapped up, All Blacks Tours general manager David Caldwell said.

"The success of Rugby World Cup 2011 in New Zealand coupled with the All Blacks current unbeatable form means there is extremely high interest in the tournament."

One of the heroes of the last Rugby World Cup - former All Blacks first five Stephen Donald has been made the All Blacks Tours Rugby World Cup 2015 Ambassador.

"Everyone knows my story - one minute I was white -baiting, the next minute I took that phone call from Ted saying he needed me at Rugby World Cup 2011. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life,'' he said.

''This is going to be an incredible tournament and the boys will be fired up to go back to back so they will be wanting as many Kiwis as possible, in the stands in black cheering them on.''
