Budget Planner – 2018 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Filed in Abu Dhabi F1 Travel Guide by on 0 Comments

Work out the cost of a weekend at Yas Marina for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The next race is on November 23-25, 2018.

Yas Marina is the new money, Middle Eastern version of Monaco and currently offers the most expensive tickets on the Formula 1 calendar. It’s not good news for fans on a budget, with the fairly average Abu Dhabi hill (General Admission) tickets priced at $270 USD for the weekend and no such thing as hostels offering cheap dorm beds. Grandstand tickets are also expensive, but worth splashing out on if you want a better viewing experience at Yas Marina. At the higher end, the sky is the spending limit in terms of VIP tickets and fancy trackside hotels like the Yas Viceroy.
