Flight Centre Travel Group and ATPI Sports Events have begun selling packages to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games as Authorised Travel Agents (ATA).
The arrangement provides FCTG brands Flight Centre, Escape Travel and Travel Associates, and global travel & events management firm, ATPI, with exclusive rights to sell GC2018 tickets and travel packages in Australia and abroad.
Event chairman and former Queensland Premier Peter Beattie said both ATAs could book tickets along with entry to major state attractions and destination experiences on the Gold Coast and nationally.
Flight Centre has a three-night Opening Ceremony package (staying at Mercure Brisbane) priced from $1,019ppts which includes a Category A ticket. Among its other packages are a three-night Athletics Super Final package (staying at Pullman Brisbane King George Street) which leads in at $809ppts and a three-night Swimming Final Package (staying at Mercure Brisbane) priced from $725ppts — both include Category A tickets.
ATPI has a modest range of accommodation — two Meriton and a Quality Hotel property on the Gold Coast – along with a handful of guided tours and transfer options. ATPI’s packages require at least two nights’ accommodation to be booked in conjunction with event tickets.
The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games will run between 04-15 April 2018.
