How much will a trip to the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix cost?

Work out the cost of your trip to the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix on June 4-6, including tickets, accommodation and spending money in Baku.


05/03/2021 UPDATE: The 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix on June 4-6 will take place behind closed doors with no spectators in attendance. This guide will be updated for 2022 when more information is available.

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.


Mid Range

High End

  1. 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.


    1. 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!
