Best to book early

Australians travelling to next year’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang need to purchase tickets and packages through the local official provider CoSport, whose president Robert Long said current demand was strong and comparable to previous games in Sochi and Vancouver.

“People need to book early as there is limited accommodation in and around the Gangneung and Alpensia area,” he said.

CoSport is offering two all-inclusive packages featuring accommodation, dining and event tickets. The Flex package starting at $6,770 per person twin share includes the option to select your own events, while the Premier package includes excursions, ground transport and a guided host.

The all-inclusive packages don’t include flights to Korea and run for five days.

“Book now, because there is limited space and limited rooms and transportation,” Long said.
