Travelzoo – Wimbledon Finals weekend 2018
You may not have heard of Travelzoo as it is not as well known as Groupon outside the US. Travelzoo is a bit like Groupon crossed with Secret Escapes and Last Minute. You can read more in this article.
If you have been trying to get tickets for Wimbledon and failed, their offer may be of interest.
The £165 pp package gets you a No.1 Court seat during Wimbledon finals weekend, an overnight stay in a hotel and transfers to and from the venue.
- Overnight stay on Friday, 14 July at the Holiday Inn Express Hemel Hempstead or Ibis London Heathrow. If you fancy something a bit nicer you can pay £200 per person for the 4* Hyatt Place London Heathrow or Park Inn Heathrow with continental breakfast for 2 people sharing a room
- A full day at Wimbledon with a reserved seat on No.1 Court on Saturday, 15 July (seats will be the best view available at the time of purchase)
- Return coach transfers between the hotel and Wimbledon
If you book for one person only, a supplement of £35 applies.
The Hyatt Place is a modern style hotel that opened in 2016. Whilst neither hotel would be my choice for a weekend break it does secure your seats for Wimbledon. Finals weekend seats exchange hands for £1000+ if you are unable to get one through the official channels such as the Lawn Tennis Association or Ballot. The other thing to consider is the travel time to and from the grounds which is 35-50 minutes not allowing for the extra traffic that Wimbledon brings.
