Fred's Friday Thought: Grand Prix Packages (Video)

Aloha adventures and welcome to another Friday Thought from Fred.\ here on Fred.\ Holidays TV. Today I’m excited to talk a little bit about a product that we have on our various different websites and which co-insides nicely with this weekend’s major sporting event.

As of Sunday, Lewis Hamilton will be doing his best to defend his Formula One crown, as the new season kicks off with the first race in Australia. As the drivers tour the world, participating in the pinnacle of motorsport, you could be right there cheering on Hamilton, Button, Vettel and co in a range of different cities.

We are offering various chances to combine a relaxing holiday with the adrenaline rush of a race as you enjoy seated tickets to a number of different Grand Prix. It may be too late to join the fun Down Under this weekend, but you could find yourself trackside in countries such as Spain, Belgium, Austria and Monaco during the course of the season.

The first trips we are going to talk about are those that combine a cruise with tickets to race day. Pullmantur Cruises can take you on a five-night cruise, departing Barcelona on Monday the 4thof May and visiting places such as Rome and Tunis, before arriving back in Barcelona in time for the Spanish Grand Prix on the 10th. Your package will include return flights from the UK, airport to port transfers, all-inclusive food and drink onboard, 2 nights in a Barcelona hotel, and the tickets for the race itself. Visit for more details.

When talking about Formula One there is one race that stands out above the rest. Arguably the most famous motor race on the planet and the most difficult to compete in, we’re talking about the Monaco Grand Prix. There are many different options if you want to combine a cruise with this iconic event, all of which end with you on the streets of Monte Carlo as your driving heroes race by.

Star Clippers, Azamara, and Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines all have itineraries that take you to parts of the Mediterranean before arriving in Monaco in time for race day on the 24th of May. The Star Clippers sailing will offer the chance to relax in the Ligurian Sea on board a stunning tall ship, your trip with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines will also include stops in many famous film locations, and Azamara will take you to Italy and along the French Riviera. Visit to learn more about these voyages.

If you would prefer to combine your race experience with a land-based stay, then Fred.\ Holidays can offer the chance to take a European city break in places such as Spielberg and Budapest before enjoying the Austrian and Hungarian Grand Prix. Choose as many days as you like to explore the main attractions in each destination and we’ll add tickets to the race of your choosing. You can even upgrade your seated tickets to include entrance to the practice and qualifying days as well. Please visit for more information about these land-based Formula One deals.

And that’s all we have time for today. As you can see, there are so many different ways to incorporate an exhilarating race day with a relaxing holiday abroad. Thanks for watching today, please check out the various websites for more details about our fantastic Grand Prix packages, and we’ll see you again next week for another Friday Thought from Fred.\.
