2018 Australian Open – FAQ

Where Will my Seats be Located?

We have tickets in several different sections of the stadiums. All of our seats are CATEGORY 1 seating. In Rod Laver Arena, we offer seats in the third row on the sideline of the court, and in row P, 16 rows back on the baseline. Both options are excellent. But, if you are looking for the most amazing seats at the Australian Open, make sure you plan a day in Margaret Court Arena where we have seats in the FIRST ROW in section 19! It doesn’t get any better than that! You will have access to a Corporate Hospitality Marquee for lunch, dinner and relaxation. You also have unlimited access to 13 outside courts and Hisense Arena.

What is Included in the Package Price?

Packages include hotel accommodations for the dates noted with daily breakfast, Courtside Box Seats in Rod Laver Arena, Welcome Reception & Farewell Dinner, Commemorative Gift, and the services of our Tour Hosts. In the Wander Down Under Packages airport transfers and domestic air fare are included. Hotel and Sessions of tennis can all be modified. Economy air from Los Angeles, CA can be added. Please call to design your custom package.

How Flexible are the Tour/Travel Dates?

They are very flexible. We have blocked seats for specific departure and return dates in January. However, you can travel to the South Pacific a few weeks earlier and stay through February…up to one month. Fares are available for longer stays. We have a variety of special side trips and stopovers to choose from. Click here to go to our Explore More packages to New Zealand and other Cities in Australia.

Are There Special Accommodations For Family or Groups?

Yes, Grand Slam Tennis Tours works with our clients to find appropriate rooms and suites for families and groups.

Do We Need a Visa for Australia?

Yes. If you are a US or Canadian Citizen you will need a VISA to enter Australia. If you book your international air flights with Grand Slam Tennis Tours, your VISA will be issued automatically with your tickets. If you choose to book your flights independently, ask your booking agent about your VISA.

How Long is the Flight to Australia?

Your flight crosses the International Date Line on its journey down to the South Pacific, so you actually ‘jump over’ this day. You actually arrive two days later than you departed. For example, if you leave on Fri. Jan. 13 you will arrive in Melbourne on Sun. Jan. 15. However, the day you have ‘lost’ on your flight down will be returned to you when you come back home again, so it all balances out in the long run. On your return, you arrive in LA earlier on the same day that you departed Melbourne.

How do we get to Melbourne Park, the tournament site?

The stadium is conveniently located on the edge of downtown Melbourne, less that one mile from our hotels. It’s a 10-15 minute walk or tram ride to the stadium. We will escort you to Melbourne Park on your first day.

When does play start?

Click here for a complete schedule of play.

During the first 11 days, day sessions start at 11:00 a.m and night sessions at 7:00 p.m. The last night session is the second Thursday. Friday session starts at 3:00 pm, Saturday at 1:00 p.m. and Sunday at 4:00 p.m. You will be advised of any last minute changes in scheduling.

How Do We Get Around Australia?

Australia is about the geographic size of the United States. We can plan itineraries usually with flights, as this is the most efficient way to see many places. However, trains, ferries and rental cars are also available and can be built into your package.

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do Iencounter a blog
    that’s both equally educative and engaging, and leet me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on tthe head.
    The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligesntly about.
    Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
