Question by Hannah: Roughly how much would it cost to attend the 2014 Sochi Olympics?
I live in America and would really like to see the figure skating at the next winter Olympics. If possible, it’d be fun to see some of the other sports (everything at the winter games is fantastic), but it’s already looking to be super super expensive.
From my nearest airport, a round trip ticket would cost about $ 800. Tickets to the men’s, women’s, and pairs events (along with the exhibition) are a total of about 2k. If I can get food for a price similar to what I can get in America, I can eat for probably $ 100-200.
So that’s 3k AT LEAST.
But I have no idea how much housing would cost, what hotels to look at, or if there are going to be different prices for the Olympics. Is a room going to be $ 500 a night? Would I be able to find one for any cheaper?
What are ways to save money?
Answer by Toronto
Hotels are going to be expensive around that time.
My estimate is $ 5000. Don’t forget you need insurance as well.
