Plan your Euro 2016 Soccer Trip without affecting by strikes

Plans with 5 different budgets and travel styles

As European Soccer Tournament 2016 approaches, football fans around the world are busy making plans to see their favourite team’s live matches in France. Among various options to enjoy European Soccer Tournament 2016 , we introduce 5 different routes to maximize your experience with the highest possible number of live matches attended throughout the whole tournament. Ranging from minimum to monster-budget, football fans can travel by bike, bus, car-sharing, train or even private jet. These come with accommodation suggestions within a relative budget, whether you camp in a cozy tent, rent a local’s apartment, or check in at a 5-star hotel in Paris.

All packages are designed to ensure attendance to the maximum number of matches possible, including semi-final and final matches, within the selected journey. Unsurprisingly, the route that allows super fans to attend the highest number of matches is an exclusive package offered by online, private-jet booking platform OpenJet, the first of it’s kind in Europe. OpenJet’s exclusive packages let you arrive at all hosting cities in style within the shortest time period to attend matches.

  1. THE TOUR DE FRANCE: Bike + Tent

You’ve always dreamt of doing the Tour de France, but lacked the incentive to go through with it. European Soccer Tournament 2016 takes place in France this year and we’ve dreamt up a solution to kill two birds with one shot. We’ve designed a scenic route that takes you to key matches including semi-finals in Lyon and Marseille and the final match in Paris- with picturesque stops in charming villages along the Côte d’Azur and the Luberon Valley. In order to make it to all 7 matches though, you’ll have to bike 78 hours within 31 days - that is, 11 hours of biking for each match in-venue. With that kind of a workout, you’re bound to take home a figure to rival that of Cristiano Ronaldo.

2. BUDGET FRIENDLY: Bus + Hostel

Now that Macron Law has passed in France, bus tickets are at an all-time low, offering spectators the chance to watch 22 live matches from the stadium, under the tightest of budgets. You’ll get the most bang for the buck on this route. However, you’ll be clocking in a whopping 141 hours on the road. Plan to spend most of your free-time watching the French countryside from the window of a bus. We would suggest you invest in a good window-side seat.

Whether you’re traveling solo or accompanied, you’re bound to find the perfect place to stay in the endless sea of home-rental options that Airbnb provides. If you’re feeling adventurous enough, you might even hop into a local’s car, using French car-sharing darling Blablacar.
