We are proud to present our preliminary travel program for the European Athletics Championships in Berlin, in August 2018!
Departure from Sweden is scheduled for 6 August, returning on 13 August. The event takes place between 7 and 12 August.
The hotel we have, Hecker's, 4 *, is one of the best and most-value-for-money hotels in Berlin. Our reserved rooms are larger than the hotel average in Berlin, are non-smoking and have air conditioning – which is unusual for this city in any hotel class, yet very much needed during August. Hecker's is located on a quiet street next to Kurfürstendamm, probably the best known Berlin avenue, and less than 300m to the nearest S-Bahn station, Savignyplatz, just five stops – without changing trains – to Olympiastadion.
Our seats at the stadium are in sector N2, in rows 4-6. These are near the start of 1500m and almost in front of the long jump sandpit, where we hope to see Erica Jarder fight for a medal spot.
We are still waiting for airline timetables and prices for next year, but we expect to book a direct flight to Berlin, with SAS or an equivalent airline, at a low cost. We hope to offer flights from Stockholm and Gothenburg or Copenhagen.
For the preliminary prices below we have made assumptions regarding flight costs but expect to be within plus/minus a few percent of the final price:
For travelers outside Sweden we can offer the following packages:
We expect to have the program and prices ready during the first two weeks of September and will start taking firm bookings. The number of places is, as usually, limited and we have so far three quarters of these tentatively booked!
All event packages include return airfare, hotel with share in twin room (or single room at an additional cost) and breakfast, return transfers airport - hotel and a complete set of tickets to the event.
A booking fee, €550 per person, is payable when you book an event tour with us. The remainder of the tour price is invoiced to you based on the terms for each individual tour and is payable no later than 30 days before the departure date.
Cancellation fee is charged as follows: Up until 30 days before departure - booking fee; 30 to 15 days before departure - 25% of the tour price; 14 to 8 days before departure - 50% of the tour price; within 7 days before departure - 100% of the tour price.
Note that event tickets are not refundable unless the event organiser agrees to refunds.
