Re: FF Monaco F1 GP trip

Prices are likely to go in to orbit for the whole of the F1 weekend. Accommodation and its location are something we're going to have to focus on, since this is likely to be the most expensive part of the whole thing.

Re: FF Monaco F1 GP trip

I'm probably going to get linched for this but what about camping. I'm sure I saw one on that holiday program once up in the hills of Monaco. Just an idea.

Re: FF Monaco F1 GP trip

I have driven to monaco in a van took me about 12hrs driving stayed in a cheap hotel 45 quid a night during monte-carlo rally week as I was working there.Drinking and eating can be expensive, went in one place and it was 8 quid a pint !!!!
Stars and Bars on the front does all food and drink prices about the same as TGI Fridays.
Cheapest way is easyjet to nice, hire cars to monaco
HOW ABOUT THE RALLY WEEK, IT IS A LOT CHEAPER !!!

Re: FF Monaco F1 GP trip

I have looked into this before, unless you don't mind staying 50-100+ miles from the event basically everything is in hundreds/pppn.

There are couple of websites I had about it, I will look it up.

Camping is pretty much the only option...but still the premium is huge.

Re: FF Monaco F1 GP trip

Put it like this, several companies do day trips to the french GP at circa 300+, monaco starts at 900+

Re: FF Monaco F1 GP trip

OMG....I didn't rememeber the ticket prices being so high! 420 for a sunday grandstand seat. For 2006, maybe highly inflated from true cost if you bought it direct from monaco racing or whoever runs it.

Re: FF Monaco F1 GP trip

Me? I can't even possibly start to think about affording this sort of thing, it has long been my dream since I was 16 and one or two mates started learning to drive, but as back then, to me it's still impossible.

Yeah i second that, the rally weekend would be excellent, and its free to go and watch, but u can buy special passes to park closer, which is advisable, cos from past experience u could be walking miles to see a stage!
