Travelling For Sport: Tips And Tricks

Traveling for a big sporting event is something that many of us are likely to do at least once during our lifetime. Whether it be for the world cup, the Olympics or the cricket. When you want to arrange travel to a big event like this it is always important to make sure that you follow some guidelines and tips.

 

  1. Make arrangements well ahead

It is incredibly crucial that you make any travel arrangement well in advance of your stay. If the sprinting event is a big one it is going to be popular, and this will often mean that the spaces in many hotels will be taken up very soon once the event is announced. Stay ahead of the crowd and also make sure that you arrange any taxis and transport you might need to get to and from the event from your accommodation.

 

  1. Think of hotel and parking costs


There are a lot of costs involved in visiting a sporting event far away, and some of these costs might be ones you don’t immediately think about. For example, you need to include any parking fees for the building or hotel and include the cost of the hotel as well as any extras you may need during your stay. If you are able to book a hotel which is a little further away from the main city, you will likely save yourself quite a lot of money.

 

  1. Buy tickets from the real deal


If you are purchasing tickets for a big event like the Australian Open, make sure that you purchase your ticket from a legitimate source. There are far too many horror stories out there of people buy no their ticket from someone else and then not being allowed into the venue on the day. Be aware of this and check the legitimacy of the website or person you use to buy your tickets.

 

      4. Arrive early

The best thing you can do when traveling to a sporting event is to arrive early and get settled in a couple of days before if you can. This will save you having any stress to do with traffic or late check-ins just before you are due to leave. You will miss the flow of people if you arrive at the event itself early too and this will allow you to find your way to your seat without being stuck in a huge stampede of people. You can also make sure you get in the snack line before everyone else gets a look in!

 

5. Be respectful of fans

 

The most important thing you need to remember when attending a sporting event is to stay respectful of everyone who is visiting to support their team. It’s absolutely fine to go for a good-natured banter between teams, but it is never fine to be nasty or make things personal. Just because you support different teams doesn’t make anyone better than the other. Have fun, joke around and support each other.
