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

Work the cost of your trip to the 2021 Monaco Grand Prix on May 20-23, including tickets, accommodation and spending money.


A trip to the Monaco F1 Grand Prix is not only for the rich & famous. It is possible to spend a weekend at F1’s most iconic race on a budget, though you will need to stay in nearby Nice and watch your wallet. Let’s be honest..to really get the most out of your experience, you’ll probably end up spending a lot more at Monaco than at other races on the current calendar! The bad news is that ticket prices have been on the rise in the last few years.


  • Estimated weekend cost approx. €522 ($589 USD)
  • Grandstand on Thursday = €90
  • Rocher General Admission ticket (Sat + Sun) = €192
  • Hostel bed in Nice (€30 per night x 3) = €90
  • Spending money (€50 x 3) = €150


High End

*Average costs are based on a stay of 3 nights outside Monaco with race ticket, accommodation and spending money. Prices do not include air travel (or other travel costs) required to reach Monaco.

Half the weekend at the Monaco Grand Prix?

If your budget is really limited, and you don’t fancy the idea of battling for a weekend spot on Rocher Hill, then consider going for just half the weekend. Remember that all the first practice sessions at Monaco happen on the Thursday and grandstand tickets are all reasonably priced at under €100. Entry on Friday is free and whilst there is no F1 action, you will get the chance to see a Formula 2 feature race – all grandstands are open on Friday, but the best ones do get filled up. The circuit gets opened in the early afternoon so you can walk the track and take part in the fan’s pitlane walk.

  1. Hi
    Our family of four is heading to the GP from Scotland with Grandstand tickets for the Sunday. We’re arriving Saturday and taking an apartment in Nice. What time should we get to Monaco on the Sunday, ie when does the action start as we don’t want to miss anything, thanks!

    1. Hi Morag, if you are only going for race day, then I suggest you get up early and try to get to the track for about 9:30am. There are two support races in the morning (Porsche Supercup at 09:45 and Formula Renault 2.0 at 11:10). You will also want to soak up as much atmosphere as you can. Enjoy!

    Hi, me and a small group of friends are looking to book an average joe Monaco GP 2017 weekend from England. Any advice you can offer on who/how to book with would be greatly appreciated

  3. We did Monte Carlo as a package in 2016. If we did it again we would do it on our own. Easyjet flies from lots of airports to Nice. Then from Nice airport to Nice town is a short taxi fare and I mean short about 2 miles, pick a hotel near the station, there are a few to chose from and I would suggest Nice Riquier station as it is small (up line and down line) so easy to get on right train. Although at Grand Prix weekend there are clear signs directing race goers to the right platform. Once at the station select the yellow touch screen ticket machine and select English, the rest is follow the on screen prompts, make sure you have a card to pay. If you use a machine with the hand scroll option then I hope your French is good. Get on the train and enjoy the ride, make sure you sit next to the window on the right hand side as the view from the journey is second to none. You will know when you get to MOnte Carlo as it is in a huge red stone lined tunnel (polished granite I think) get off the train, go through security and you come out right on the first bend after the start/finish straight. It really is easy to do.

    And viewing, we viewed from grandstand K2, expensive but the view was amazing. You could see them exit the tunnel, through the chicane, around tabac and disappear around the swimming pool chicane. Then if you were sat high you could turn around and catch a glimpse of the cars going through Beau Rivage. I would not book a package with coach transfers as Once raising is over it is a massive party, head for Slammers, it’s a free street party and the memories will live for you for ever. Don’t be put off by prices, yes you can pay a fortune if you want but as long as you are content to eat/drink as you walk amost places will do a large beer and a slice of pizza or hot dog or burger for around 10-12 euros. Hope this helps, wish I was going next year now

      1. Hi Ger
        Curious to hear about your Monaco GP experience! I am looking at booking tickets for 2018 coming from Western Australia!

        1. Hey Linda, it’s a long way from WA to Monaco. I actually used to live in Perth many years ago before moving to Europe. Let me know if you have specific questions as you plan your trip! Andy

          1. I booked a room for the 2022 Monaco GP. What is the cheapest way to get into the race or can I just walk around for free? I’m trying to plan a trip.

          2. The cheapest tickets are in the Rocher zone, which is a steep hill overlooking the circuit. But I don’t recommend this. Another cheap zone is called Z1, which is much better. Friday is free, so you can sit in the grandstands but there is no F1 action. Otherwise, the whole circuit is opened up at the end of each day and you can walk around and soak up the atmosphere.

  4. Hello,

    My wife and I, 25 and 23 year old fun professionals, are planning on going to the 2018 Grand Prix. We would like to get the VIP Yacht package for Saturday/Sunday, but we’re hoping to find 5 other people to split the cost with us. Could you suggest where I could find 5 other people who are willing to go? Or do you know of any service that will sell individual tickets for the Yacht?


    Yacht VIP Package- (Sat-Sun)
    Spend the F1 weekend on board a luxury tri-deck yacht and watch Saturday and Sunday’s entire repertoire of Porsche Supercup, Renault 3.5 and Formula 1 Races from the harbour! 

    Thank you!!

    Hey Eddie Gomez, myself (25) and my partner (27) are also looking to purchase these tickets, we could hook up?

  7. Would love help planning a post college graduation trip for a few friends to the Monaco races May 2019. Somewhere between “budget” and “middle” rates . Advice appreciated . Would be flying from the east coast, USA

  8. Hi, I am currently studying in Germany and planning to attend the Grand Prix in 2020. My plan is to stay in Nice, obviously because it is cheaper than staying in Monaco. I am wondering whether I can watch the race on the street without paying for a ticket or whether I can attend the activities without a ticket? I am a little bit short on a budget. Thanks for all your help :)

  9. Hello my family has already booked the trip for that week. Can you recommend a restaurant or rooftop that is moderately priced to watch the race on Sunday? Thank you

    1. Hi Carlos, unfortunately the terraces/restaurants are super expensive on Sunday, minimum 1500 EUR per person. But you can get a terrace view with hospitality on Thursday (the first day of F1 action) for 250 EUR per person with our supplier.
