Budget Planner – 2020 Azerbaijan Grand Prix

Filed in Azerbaijan Grand Prix Travel Guide by on 2 Comments

Work out the cost of your trip to Baku for the 2020 Azerbaijan Grand Prix on June 5-7.

Baku is a mid-priced F1 destination. The local government did international tourists a favor in late 2015 (but not locals) by removing a long-standing peg to the USD, which caused the Azerbaijani manat (AZN) to collapse in value overnight. This decision was tied to the falling oil price of course, which has had a big effect in oil-rich Azerbaijan. This has made Baku a much more affordable destination for foreign visitors, but it can easily get expensive if you staying in a nice hotel and eating in good restaurants.




  • Average costs are based on a stay of 3 nights in Baku with race ticket, accommodation and spending money. Prices do not include air travel (or other travel costs) required to reach Baku.
  • About our categories: Budget fans buy the cheapest race tickets (General Admission) and camp by the track or stay in a hostel. Mid-Range fans buy a grandstand ticket and stay in a 3-star hotel, whilst High-End fans buy a VIP or experience package and stay in a 4 or 5 star hotel.

    Hi Andrew,

    Planning a trip to 2019 Baku F1 and would like your expert advice on the grandstand tickets.

    I can only attend on race day and wanted to check with you if there are any sites which will only sell Sunday grandstand tickets.

    We are 4 people and deciding on either Mugham or Icheri grandstands? Which of these do you prefer and what is good about it.

      Hi Philip, I don’t know of any sites selling race-day only tickets, sorry. I haven’t personally sat in either grandstand, but I’d choose Mugham as it’s closer to the Fanzone and you can see two sections of the track. Enjoy!
