2021 Australian Open – FAQ
Where Will my Seats be Located?
As an Official Travel Partner of the Australian Open, we have tickets in several different sections of the stadiums. We have CATEGORY 1 and CATEGORY 2 seating. In Rod Laver Arena, we offer seats in the first row in section 5, 12 and 14. Both options are excellent, however, if you are looking for the most amazing seats at the Australian Open, make sure you plan a day in Margaret Court Arena. In MCA we have seats in the FIRST ROW in section 10, next to the baseline. It doesn’t get any better than that! Plus, you’ll have access to our Australian Open Hospitality Suite. You also have unlimited access to 13 outside courts and Melbourne Arena.

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. 10 you will arrive in Melbourne on Sun. Jan. 12. 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?

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.
