Package or 'DIY'?

We are happy to sell you just tickets and you can make your own way to the event and your own accommodation arrangements (you are still very welcome to join us for our parties and excursions). If you are camping or have friends in the area to stay with, this is usually the best approach. Of course if you are looking to book a hotel, we strongly recommend you consider one of our packages. Yes, if you book a hotel on your own you may pay a little less than our package. But please consider the advantages of coming with us:

If you have problems with the hotel (or circuit) you can turn to us (and we probably speak the local language)
You have 24hr access to our reps and our local 'hotline'
No stress getting to and from track (you drink, we drive)
Our programme to help you plan your weekend
Our souvenirs of the event
And of course you get to come to our parties to meet fellow motoGP fans!
You may save some money going on your own, or you will save stress coming with us. The choice is yours!

Products

Our 'core' product is providing you a great MotoGP experience!

We do this by offering you a tailored package based on products we have carefully selected for each event.

To build your weekend, we have a simple equation:

tour = package + tickets + extras

Tickets are of course your entry to the MotoGP. We offer a great range of track experiences; see more information about VIP options and Tickets.

Our packages provide all the services in support of the GP itself: accommodation, track transfers, guide, information. Sometimes we have 'special' packages which included additional services, typically meals. We always have some opening gathering to give us an opporutnity to brief you, for you to ask questions, meet fellow MotoGP fans, and generally get the weekend off to a start. You can book packages for any duration (subject to a minimum) and any dates as long as the night before race day is included (usually Saturday night). See more information on our packages...

For nearly all GPs we also offer additional excursions, cultural events, parties, additional transport options (such as helicopters, intercity transfers, taxi pickups) - these we generally refer to a 'extras'. See more information on these services...

Booking

The basic booking process is: (see also our section on planning a MotoGP trip)
  1. Choose an event
  2. Get an idea of budget level: are you full VIP or economy?
  3. Pick rough dates, your party size and bedding (e.g. 3 people: in a triple room? A double and a single?)
  4. Now place a booking with us. If your requirements are fairly straightforward, by far the most effecient way to do this is online. Remember, if you book online, your credit card is not charged. This is just a reservation against our allocated product. Thus once your reservation is confirmed, you can plan the other elements of your trip. You can also make a reservation by placing a provisional booking on our web form, or via telephone/email, and we will carry on the booking manually. (n.b. for online bookings we waive our normal 18 EUR handling fee)
  5. Depending on how soon the event is, we will give you up to a week to confirm your reservation (if the event is soon we will charge you immediately or within a day)
  6. Now organise flights and other details of your break.
  7. Come back to us with any required changes to your reservations. (we can always add/change days up until a few weeks before the event)
  8. Once all is finalised, you can pay according to the payment terms (below)

Payment

We can quote and accept payments in EUR, GBP, USD, AUD and CZK. The price we set in these currencies is final, even if you have later payments and the exchange rates change! At the time of booking you provide a credit card to guarantee the reservation. You may pay us via:

  • credit card (Mastercard/Visa only).
  • bank transfer (in GBP, EUR, USD, AUD, or CZK)

Only in exceptional circumstances will we take cash at the event.

Your first payment is due once you confirm your booking. For package bookings, you pay 50% deposit. Deadlines for confirmation are based on how soon the event is:

  • less than one month: immediate (we can usually hold for a few hours if you need to confirm a flight or someone else)
  • 1-2 months: we will hold a booking for 2 days
  • 2-4 months: we will hold a booking for 5 days
  • 4+ months: we will hold a booking for 1 week or as negotiated

Your payment schedule depends on the order:

  • For ticket-only orders, you pay 100% in advance
  • For package bookings, you pay 50% deposit with the balance due 2 months before the event

When we receive a payment, we will email you a receipt. We will send you a proforma invoice showing all payments and due dates. We do not issue VAT invoices unless requested by a European VAT registered business. Please note that we operate under the tour operators margin scheme for VAT thus VAT paid through us is generally unrecoverable.

Note on credit cards: Our UK bank charges an exorbitant rate for processing credit card transactions; thus we process GBP (and AUD) transactions through our Czech bank, converting to Czech Koruna at the prevailing interbank rate. We charge NO credit card fee for this; however the actual GBP (or AUD) amount charged to your bank may vary from the price. We have no control over this. (We usually find the net difference is less than the minimum 2.5% we would need to charge for card handling)

Bonding/Insurance

In these times, concern over financial stability and security of any payments is only natural. Rest assured that EU regulation is in line with UK in that we are required to ensure your money is safe in the highly unlikely situation of business failure. To this end we have taken an insurance policy of international travel protection (a bond) which guarantees refund of any payments made in respect of unfulfilled delivery of our services. The policy is issued by German company etics (Europaische Reiseversicherung AG). You may download a copy of this policy here..

Delivery

Once you are fully paid we will deliver products.

Tickets are delivered according to your request:

  • If you are package customer we deliver to your hotel
  • By ordinary post (We generally do not recommend this; we will only do for low-value tickets at your risk. We register the post, but it can take weeks to trace in the event of loss, and this may be too late for you!)
  • By overnight courier (technically this is not insured, but you will have a tracking number and will be able to trace, and in the rare event of loss we will replace the tickets on site)
  • You may collect at our designated collection point and time (no charge)
  • As a final resort, we can deliver to you at the track, but we charge a handling fee for this.

Tickets are posted about 3 weeks before the event (depending on the circuit). VIP VIllage tickets are posted about 2 weeks in advance. We do not put VIP Village tickets in ordinary post.

We will also email joining instructions to package customers (and collection instructions to collection customers) about 1 week before the event. Also all details, maps and programmes are posted to our web site (see the PRACTICAL INFO section of the event page)
