Budget Planner – 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix

Filed in 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix Travel Guide by on 2 Comments

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

Please Note: The 2020 Azerbaijan Grand Prix (scheduled for June 5-7) was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This post will be updated with current prices when dates are announced for the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix and ticket sales begin.

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.

    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.

    Thanks,

      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!
