Travel & Sport – Make the most of your visit to a new city

The Best Way to Experience a City!

Do you have a trip to the USA coming up? 

Here at Travel Coordinates we believe the best way to enjoy your holiday is to experience the city you are staying and enjoying their favourite pastimes and events.

Our advice when travelling to the USA is getting yourself to a sporting game – they are a huge event in the states and a great way of immersing yourself in the local way of life.

How else would you know what ‘tailgating’ means to an American, or get chills listening to a packed stadium singing the The Star-Spangled Banner (USA national anthem)?

  

NFL Game: New York Giants v San Francisco 49ers, Oct 2015.  These were our seats – only 7 rows from the front!

We can arrange all sporting tickets for you – our clients have already enjoyed NFL, College Football, Major League Baseball, NHL and the NBA.  Plus we can access all other sports, just ask us what you are wishing to see and leave the rest to us!

Accommodation

The internet has enabled everyone to have access to booking their own accommodation, a Travel Agent will stay play a pivotal role in booking accommodation on your behalf.  Here is why:

  • Access to cheaper prices – despite what you may think, you actually don’t pay any more for using a Travel Agent, in fact you are likely to save!
  • Security with your booking – online platforms come with the risk of misleading information (pictures not reflecting reality), credit card fraud, overbooking (you turn up to your hotel and they have double-triple booked!)
  • No upfront payment – generally speaking you will only need to pay a deposit with final payment due in the weeks leading up to travel
  • Your $ stays here in Australia!  For the same price you can book online and your travel dollars can go into another economy OR at no additional cost to you, have an agent book your accommodation and your travel dollars stay right here supporting our local economy
