This year is definitely one for the sports fans, with a range of big events in the calendar. The biggest event of the year, especially for us in the UK, is the Olympic Games.
Taking place in London this summer, the Olympic Games (and subsequent Paralympic Games) are set to be spectacular events.
But for many sports fans in Britain, and indeed across Europe, there is an event taking place before the Olympics that is just as important.
Euro 2012 is set to kick off in June this year, and football fans throughout the continent are starting to make preparations for their journey across Europe.
This year, the event is being held in Poland and the Ukraine, who are joint hosts. Kicking off on 8th June in Warsaw, Poland, Euro 2012 is certain to be a great football showcase. So how can you make sure you get to Poland or Ukraine this summer?
Tickets to Poland and Ukraine during the tournament are selling out fast, so book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
It’s also worth investigating the package deals that some holiday companies are offering, which include flights, accommodation and tickets to group matches.
It’s a long journey, but some England fans are planning on making the trip to Euro 2012 by train. It may seem like a strange choice initially, but at least you are likely to get a ticket.
Another option is to fly to somewhere close to Poland or Ukraine and then take a subsequent train into either country.
The cost of fuel these days means that driving across Europe is probably the most expensive way to get to Euro 2012.
However, using a car is likely to give you much more flexibility and will mean you can return home early if, Heaven forbid, England go out in the group stages.
If you are planning to travel to Euro 2012, remember to look into travel insurance before you go.Back to top
