On June 10, the next European football competition will kick off, with France hosting the best players from Europe and the World for one month to put the European Championship title, held by Spain, back into play. France will be hosting countless fans in their country's colours at this top tournament. On this occasion, many of you are preparing to embark on a journey on French soil, between Paris, Toulouse, Nice, Marseille, Lyon or Bordeaux. We offer you a special Euro 2016 good tips guide for you, itinerant supporters.
Euro 2016 tips: the tips of the itinerant supporter
Plan your accommodation
Imagine, the supporters of 2 respective teams, and all the football fans gathered in the same place, at the same time, and looking for accommodation: it is hard to imagine that all the hotels, guest houses or youth hostels will be able to open their arms to you. The preferred solution is to rent private apartments. By staying with a local, you not only have the opportunity to stay near the stadium, but also to be totally independent and above all to experience the tourist experience from the inside. You can enjoy the comfort of home and depend only on yourself: ideal for the most party-goers among you who will surely return in the early morning after the victory of their favorite team. For this, you know the best addresses, such as Airbnb, Homelidays, Housetrip, or Wimdu. This solution is economical and provides you with unbeatable comfort: don't wait any longer!
Stay connected so you don't miss anything
For 1 month, you will have to stay on the lookout for any information, any scores, any yellow cards distributed but also know which player has sprained his little finger on the field... Difficult when wandering from one place to another, especially when the journeys are long and cross areas without any available network (not even GPRS, that is).So, to make sure you don't miss any opportunity to be more informed, or even to be able to predict with extreme accuracy, we invite you to opt for My Webspot Wi-Fi boxes, starting at €6.40 per day, offering you an optimal and high speed 4G LTE connection wherever you are. Your boxes will accompany you from your rented room without wifi, to the train journey without network or connection. Be sure to become the encyclopedia of the tournament with your box!
Not to be ruined in transport
To get to the various stadiums that will host you during the Euro, you will most certainly risk chaining transport hours from one city to another and the zeros will very quickly add up at the end of this intense month. If you have long journeys planned such as Marseille-Lille, prefer the train by taking your tickets as soon as possible and opting for a multi-person order. Are there 10, 15 or even 30 of you travelling to the same stadium? Feel free to order at once to save as much as possible! However, the most economical but still little used offer is bus travel: many companies offer special trips in honour of the euro and guide you from one stadium to another for just 15€! You can also enjoy the friendliness of carpooling thanks to the leader in car sharing: Blablacar, available on Android and AppStore. Finally, for your short return trips after a busy game, or if the frenzy of the event no longer allows you to drive, Uber will be the Sam of your evenings and the private driver of your days, simply by using the application. It is the ideal solution to move around without breaking the bank, between individuals!
Don't stay in the stands: Get out!
