Attending the 2014 Winter Olympics can be a memorable once in a lifetime experience. Since Sochi is a far away destination and there is currently a high demand for it, here are a few tips to make sure your adventure goes according to plan.
Traveling in groups
Maybe the most efficient way to travel to this year Winter Olympics is to use a travel agency that will take care of everything, from transportation to hotels and event tickets. None the less there are several other things to look out for besides getting you money worth.
You must have a valid visa to Russia
Travel visa for Russia is a must. I hear they are not that hard to obtain, but you`ll have to make sure if that`s something your agency will take care or you need to do it yourself.
You can’t buy event tickets unless you have a valid Russian Visa. If they are not included in your travel package you can get them directly from the Olympic Federation or from different vendors in your country.
Check your travel package and make sure they includes airport transfer and event transportation. You must take care of your transportation upfront because all the roads in or around Sochi will be a madhouse. One alternative way to get around is by using the city`s public transportation system or simply ask for a assistance or recommendation from your travel agency.
