Budget Planner – 2018 British Grand Prix

Filed in British F1 Travel Guide by on 0 Comments

Planning a trip to Silverstone for the British Formula 1 Grand Prix? Read our budget planner to help plan the cost of your trip. The next race is on July 6-8, 2018.

Silverstone is one of F1’s most expensive destinations. The cost of race tickets, accommodation, getting around and trackside spending are all high in Britain. Camping next to the track is best for fans on a budget, as you’ll cut out daily travel costs. One advantage for international fans is that the British pound has fallen against most major currencies since Brexit, making the trip to Silverstone a little more affordable.




  • Average costs below are per person based on a stay of 3 nights, including race tickets, accommodation and spending money. The budget does not include flights (or other travel costs).
  • 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.
