Austravel is offering a variety of Ashes packages, in association with Gullivers Sports Travel, to combine the cricket series with a holiday down under.
Alistair Cook and his team will head to Brisbane in November for the first of five tests taking place over the Christmas and New Year period, and the operator is running city packages which tie in with each of the Tests and can be linked together to create a tailor-made itinerary. The operator has a number of flexible options available, combining accommodation and the Test ticket.
As an example, guests can opt for a New Years Eve break in Sydney watching the fireworks over the Harbour Bridge before taking in the fifth and final Ashes Test at Sydney Cricket Ground. The nine-day holiday costs from £2,589 per person and includes scheduled flights from Heathrow with Malaysia Airlines, eight nights' accommodation at the four-star Citigate Central Hotel and a five-day Bronze ticket for the Sydney Test starting on January 3. The price is based on a December 29 departure.
