wow…just checked hotel pricing during the f1 weekend in june…up 250-300% per night vs the week before or the week after…might as well fly back and forth from Toronto! wow!….better pack a tent I guess! lol
I would avoid hotels like the plague on event weekends. Look at sites like https://www.airbnb.cahttp://www.vrbo.com/search?q=montrealhttp://www.wimdu.com/montreal You can rent apartments from owners for peanuts compared to what hotels will charge, plus you’ll get to stay in Montreal’s truly charming neighbourhoods rather than some concrete tourist tower. I travelled around Europe using sites like these and I am never, ever going to a hotel again if I can help it.
On the subject of hotels if any of you are lucky enough to have tons of points/status with hotel chains, or a relative or friend who is willing to give/sell you some, you can use those to either offset some of the massive cost or get access to rooms reserved for club members.
My friends Dad was able to offer us sufficient points to get a shared room downtown Montreal, pretty lucky! Proximity to the track is really the issue.
Myself and two other friends purchased the gold trios package. This will be the first time to an F1 event and why not to the one in my own country lol. I hope it will be a blast even got a decent hotel for relatively cheap.
I wanted to ask if people have taken young kids to the race before? My wife and I are planning on buying grandstand tickets (probably GS33) and need to know if we can bring our 2 yr old son for free or not. The official website has info about children under 11 and General Admission tickets but nothing about our situation. He’d most likely be sitting on my lap so I don’t see an issue but I don’t want to walk in and have a ticket agent get all twisted in a knot about my kid.
@chen at the moment no ive chosen to go to shanghai instead this year,i usually do 3 flyaways a season and 3 or 4 of the european races,austin will be my other long haul this season
I f the top bar in the casino is open this year(was closed for reconstruction last year) i always head there after qualy and the race,great place to have a beer or 2 and let the crowd go home,then jump on the free bus or grab a cab into town
Just now I came to know about this event and is it possible to get the ticket hereafter?? If so, share the complete details. I am very interested to attend this event so reply me as soon as possible. Thanks.
