WELCOME

Australian Open 2021 The Australian Open, or AO as it’s known, is the biggest of the four tennis Grand Slams. The action begins in January, during Melbourne’s vibrant summer. AO has come along way since humble beginnings in 1905 and has evolved into a two-week celebration of tennis and entertainment that encapsulates the city. Fans travel to the watch the Australian Open from around the world, and each year it’s reinvented and improved. Australian Open is unlike any other sporting event. Fans will enjoy world-class culinary offerings from Melbourne’s leading restaurants and celebrity chef appearances. Hospitality experiences never fail to dazzle and impress. Throughout Melbourne Park, the atmosphere is electric with brand activations, shopping, activities, concerts and entertainment for all the family. Non-stop tennis brings fans closer to the on-court action, unlike any other event from the Rod Laver Arena to the outer courts, there is world-class tennis on display everywhere you look. And it’s not just the fans who rave about Australian Open, many of the top players cite Melbourne Park and the facilities as the best in the world. It’s easy to see why. The Australian Open is an event where you can see your favourite players up close and personal during the first week. And during the second week, watch breathtaking performances as players progress to the final rounds held in the fabulous Rod Laver Arena.

Australia’s favourite sporting event.

If you venture out of the city, you will find beautiful wine regions, stunning national parks and breathtaking coastal drives all under a couple of hours from the CBD. At Events Travel, we have been helping fans experience Australian Opens’ since 1995 and were a founding partner of the Official Tour Operator program back in 1997.

Victoria, Australia

3. Melbourne is a dynamic cosmopolitan city, rich in culture, sports, arts, fashion and food. Here are a few of our favourites things to see and do 1. NGV INTERNATIONAL Located near the Botanical Gardens, a short walk from the CBD, is the brutalist bunker-like building which houses an expansive collection of art, ancient artefacts and modern pieces. Regular global exhibitions are the main draw card in addition to NGV Friday Nights—a series of fun-filled events with music, bars, dining and late-night exhibition access.

2. EXPLORE LANEWAYS

3. QUEEN VICTORIA MARKET Within walking distance to the north of the CBD is the famed Queen Victoria Market, the largest open-air market in the southern hemisphere. Enjoy wares and fares from over 600 traders with tastings and a bustling atmopshere that’s particularly energetic on Saturday mornings.

4. YARRA VALLEY

Melbourne is globally renowned for a thriving cultural, arts and food scene. At the centre of this is Melbourne’s art-filled laneways. Walk through the city and find street art from budding amateurs and globally renowned artists. Enjoy political, counterculture and irreverent humour and dazzling pieces worth a photo or two. Most notable is Hoser Lane, just off Flinders Street/Lane. 68

O FFIC IA L TR A V EL A GENT

Victoria is renowned for producing world-class wines and the Yarra Valley is the number one seed. Less than an hour from Melbourne, the region offers breathtaking scenery, romantic hideways and indulgent adventures.

Take your pick from over 80 cellar doors, dozens of sensational restaurants offering regional produce or extend your stay a while in some fantastic luxury accommodations. This is a great option to extend your stay after AO.

4.

5. GREAT OCEAN ROAD After indulging in the Yarra Valley, enjoy a relaxing scenic drive along the Great Ocean Road. Best known for the 12 Apostles, the stretch of coast south west of Melbourne makes for a fantastic trip for a few days to unwind and get outdoors. Whether you hire a car and enjoy the freedom of the scenic coastline or join a guided tour, there are plenty of amazing wonders awaiting you from waterfalls to beaches, walks and restaurants. The Great Ocean Road will not disappoint.

Common Questions How do I make a booking?

Do I need Travel Insurance?

Speak to a Travel Expert to start your journey.

In short, yes. We recommend travel insurance for every trip, big or small. That’s why we’ve partnered with CHI to offer travel insurance and have included a 15% off base policy discount for Australian residents. Plus, our Travel Experts can help choose the right policy for you. We recommend purchasing a policy at the time of booking to cover the duration of your trip.

Phone: Email: Visit:

+613 5989 7666 res@events.com.au events.com.au/AO2021

What ticket types are available? We have Official Tickets from all categories including Ground Passes (access to Melbourne Park, outer courts and show courts) and reserved Rod Laver Arena Tickets (all categories). In addition, we have Margaret Court Arena Tickets, John Cain Arena Tickets and Official Hospitality Packages. For the Finals we also have our exclusive Events Travel Superbox, a true VIP experience.

Can I purchase tickets by themselves? As an Official Tour Operator for Tennis Australia and Australian Open, we primarily provide Official Travel Packages and do not sell Grounds Passes or Reserved Tickets individually without a package. However, we do sell Official Hospitality Packages individually, which are great for local residents and companies. Ask us about pricing for this.

I live abroad, can I book with you? Yes. We sell to customers from around the world without any restrictions. However, please note that payments will be made in AUD at the daily exchange rate. Many of our customers come from New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Asia and South Africa.

Can I choose a different hotel? Yes, we can provide accommodation anywhere throughout your trip. We can provide our recommendations or if you have a particular property in mind, let us know and we’ll book that hotel for you (subject to availability).

72

Can I change my booking? Changes are typically not possible after making a booking, however we do assess changes on a case by case basis, depending on what is involved. Upgrades, extra nights or additions to a package are generally possible, subject to availability. We recommend adding extra nights and upgrades at the time of booking to ensure availability.

I have a Corporate Group, can you help? Absolutely. We have dedicated Group Travel Experts on hand to take care of your group from start to finish, with all the services you need. Get in touch today to start your journey.

What else do you offer? As a full-service travel company, we happily arrange personalised packages with pre/post event travel anywhere around the world. Ask us for a personalised package today.

Why should I choose you? We have been pioneering sports travel around the world since 1993. We have helped tens of thousands of travellers experience many of modern sports most historic moments. Not only are our team extremely experienced, but we are passionate about helping fans get the most from their travel experience, something we hope to do for you. By choosing us as your travel partner, it means you have access to Official Tickets and are not supporting the secondary or black markets, which is a risky way to enjoy an event. On top of this, we are fully accredited with AFTA, ATAS and other organisations.

What’s the difference between a Package and a Tour? Packages are designed for independent travellers and are not escorted day-to-day by Events Travel staff. With a package, you’re travelling on your own, but you may see Events Travel staff at formal events, transfers or ticket collection centres (if applicable). With a Tour, it’s the opposite and you will be escorted throughout your trip by a Tour Manager who is there to manage the group and to make sure everything happens smoothly.

Finally, almost three decades of creating unforgettable travel experiences says it all. We look forward to warmly welcoming you to Australian Open 2021.

All our Tours are designed for small-groups and balance event experiences, destinations and are often themed, for example, golf, gourmet or nature. Tours are a great option to travel with like-minded people. Sit back and relax, knowing everything is taken care of.

Are you Official?

Can my Travel Agent book with you?

Events Travel is a proud long-standing Official Tour Operator for Australian Open and Tennis Australia. We have direct access to Official Tickets and are authorised to sell travel to Australian Open and other Tennis Australia events.

Absolutely. We work with registered Travel Agents around the world. You are welcome to refer your Travel Agent to book on your behalf and we can liaise with them directly for you.

We offer the following services: - Accommodation - Flights - Transport - Event Tickets - Sightseeing Experiences - Travel Insurance - Group/Corporate Travel
