Budget Planner – 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix

Filed in Brazilian F1 Travel Guide by on 6 Comments

Work out the cost of your weekend at Interlagos for the Brazilian Grand Prix with our budget planner! This year’s race is on November 9-11, 2018.

It is possible to do a weekend at the Brazilian Grand Prix on a limited budget, but be wary; the costs can quickly add up for tourists in Brazil’s largest city, especially if you decide to eat out at restaurants and take taxis everywhere, instead of the metro. Brazil uses the REAL currency (BRL); at current exchange rates, $1 USD = 3.25 BRL / €1 = 4 BRL




  • Average costs below are per person based on a stay of 3 nights in Sao Paulo with race tickets, accommodation and spending money. The prices do not include flights (or other travel costs) required to reach Sao Paulo or Brazil.
  • 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.

    How much are beers at the track?

  2. Ryan says:

    How much General Admission field tickets Fri-Sun?

    • Editor says:

      Hi Ryan, there’s no General Admission at Interlagos. The cheapest tickets for Grandstand Q (bleachers) cost around $190 USD for the weekend, but I’d recommend to buy Grandstand A tickets instead for around $270 USD. More info here.

    What’s the price of food? I’ve already bought a cashless card to use at the track, and I wanna know how much money should I charge on it.
