Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

British and Monaco Grand Prix tickets available NOW via Marriott Moments

If you are sitting on some Marriott Rewards or Starwood Preferred Guest points, this is a unique chance to see the British or Monaco Grand Prix for a very affordable (points) price.

These packages appeared on Marriott Moments on Monday.  They will NOT last long now that I have posted this – I am talking hours rather than days.

You can choose from:

Monaco:

2 Grandstand tickets, with lunch, for qualifying day on Saturday 26th May @ 30,000 Marriott points (10,000 SPG points)

or

2 Grandstand tickets, with lunch, for race day on Sunday 27th May @ 60,000 Marriott points (20,000 SPG points)

Silverstone:

2 Grandstand tickets, with lunch and transportation, for qualifying day on Saturday 7th July @ 30,000 Marriott points (10,000 SPG points)

or

2 Grandstand tickets, with lunch and transportation, for race day on Sunday 8th July @ 60,000 Marriott points (20,000 SPG points)

For Monaco, if you are British Airways Gold, remember that – as it is more than 30 days away – you can ring up BA and force them to open up Avios seats to Nice for you (at double price) under the Gold Priority Reward scheme.  That won’t help you find a cheap hotel room of course …..!

There are also auction packages with VIP hospitality for both races.  For Monaco, the auctions don’t close until 30th April, however, which means you couldn’t use a Gold Priority Reward and would be stung for flight and hotel costs.  I would also expect these packages to go for disproportionately high sums.

For Monaco, you can redeem the practice day tickets here and the race day tickets here.

For Silverstone, you can redeem the practice day tickets here and the race day tickets here.

    I’ve just snapped up two tickets for the Race Day at Silverstone! Does anyone know what to expect on the day? Apparently transport is provided . . . . from where? . . . I was planning to drive there (unless they’re going to pick me up from London :P)

    • Tilly says:

      If you drive you need car park passes which we purchase when we order our tickets. Alternatively there’s park and ride but that too has to be booked in advance i think. I gueas there will be various pick up points in major towns/cities if transport is included in the package. Quite envious as I find the drive there and back knackering every year I do it.

    I did the Monaco grand prix a few years ago. If you’re after more reasonable accommodation and no crowds consider staying just over the Italian border. We flew to Genoa (actually paid cash because the prices were so cheap), had a few nights there and then got the train to Sanremo. From there you wouldn’t know there was a grand prix nearby at all despite being within an hour of Monaco by train. Another benefit was that trains west towards Nice were absolutely packed afterwards while the eastbound trains were mostly empty.

    Would love to book Monaco. Is there any way to book without points and add the points at a later stage once I have them?

  • Robin says:

    What value roughly would the Qualifying day at Silverstone have? Seems like a pretty good package but I don’t have a huge amount of Marriott points and want to make sure I get the best value for them?

  • Tilly says:

    I would love to have gone for Monaco but I’m already booked to go away. Oh well, maybe next year.

    Just out of interest, which grandstands are the Silverstone seats in?

  • Nige says:

    I’m not too sure what you would value these points at, but as a guide last year at Silverstone I had weekend grandstand tickets, weekend camping tickets with electric hookup, the all incluse VIP Drivers lounge on practice day and weekend parking tickets all for around £500

  • Dannyrado says:

    Do they release these for most races then? I’m fully booked for the summer, so I can’t go, and sadly non of my friends have the same interest in F1 that I do…

    Thanks for the heads up Rob – off to race day and qualifying day in Monaco for the cost a one hotel night #BestDealEver
