Budget Planner – 2018 Singapore Grand Prix

Filed in Singapore F1 Travel Guide by on 1 Comment

Work out a budget for your trip to F1’s night race! We’ve crunched the numbers on going to the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix. This year’s race is on September 14-16, 2018.

Singapore is one of F1’s most expensive destinations. The city is known for its high quality shopping, food and accommodation, and this comes at a price. But it is possible to do the weekend on a budget by staying in a hostel and buying a walkabout or Bay Grandstand ticket. At the higher end, the sky is the limit in terms of luxury/VIP options in Singapore, with amazing 5-star trackside hotels and plenty of hospitality tickets to lighten your wallet.

BUDGET

MID-RANGE

HIGH END

 

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

Trackside prices at Marina Bay

The food at Marina Bay is much better than the majority of F1 races, but is still overpriced when compared to the rest of the city. The good news is that you can easily leave the circuit for a quick bite to eat and return in time for the next session or concert. Here’s some 2017 prices: large beer (mainly Heineken) $12-14, soft drinks and bottled water $3, meals $10-15, F1 team t-shirts $60-100, team caps $70. (By comparison, you’ll be able to buy a plate of food and large beer for $10 at many hawker centers throughout the city)
