We are excited to announce our 2017 Purple Roadtrips to London with the Baltimore Ravens next fall. Thank you for your continued interest in traveling abroad with WNST!
Please read all of the details of our European adventure carefully.
Because of the two possibilities for the dates of the Ravens-Jaguars game – Sunday, Sept. 24 OR Sunday, Oct. 1 – we want you to be fully aware of your itinerary so you can buy your trip right now with the full confidence and ease of the more than 12,000 Baltimore sports fans we’ve taken all over the continent since 1996.
We can’t tell you how excited we are to offer this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at these introductory rates. Please be aware that we have a VERY limited inventory due to early airline space and the flexibility of our itinerary based on when the Ravens play in London.
EITHER WAY, YOU ARE GOING TO LONDON TO SEE THE RAVENS IF YOU BUY THE TRIP NOW!!!
We are also offering a $100 discount for all who emailed us this week and all orders placed BEFORE midnight on Christmas night – December, 25, 2016. We expect this trip to sell out very quickly with the additional holiday discount!
As you’ll see when comparing our trip to the marketplace, we will be offering the most affordable trip available so if you are definitely planning on traveling with us to London, we recommend booking it ASAP to secure these great rates. Given the demand and interest I’ve seen, we’d be shocked if these last past Christmas weekend.
WNST is offering two travel options – both consisting of five (5) nights in London.
Our introductory rates for the initial are based on hotel occupancy.
Single Occupancy: $2400 ($50 more pp using PayPal)
Double Occupancy: $2100 ($50 more pp using PayPal)
Triple Occupancy: $2000 ($50 more pp using PayPal)
Quad Occupancy: $1950 ($50 more pp using PayPal)
*** REMEMBER TO TAKE $100 OFF PER PERSON IF YOU BUY THIS HOLIDAY WEEK ONLY!!!!
All trips include:
- NonStop overnight travel from Dulles Airport to London Heathrow on a major international airline with a mid-day return after the game
- A 5-night stay at a 4-star London hotel close to the subway
- One entry per person on the London Eye as well as our WNST London Thames River Cruise. (https://www.londoneye.com/)
- Admission to WNST Saturday purple pub pep rally
- Admission to WNST Sunday purple pre-game tailgate event
- Upper deck game ticket for Sunday Ravens-Jaguars game
We are also planning some other surprises and memories – just like we did in Tampa in 2001 at Whiskey Joe’s and in New Orleans with our 2:52 march to the Superdome!
IMPORTANT: The above rates (minus $100 holiday early bird discount) are valid if you are able to pay via check. As an additional incentive this week, anyone who pays via check will also receive a free autographed copy of Purple Reign 2, our 6-CD set of “WNST Purple Memories” and a free appetizer coupon from Ruth’s Chris Steak House. You will also receive a $50 voucher good for any future WNST purple football road trip. (*This is another $100 value for buying the trip during the holiday week using a check!!!)
We are offering two identical options for folks planning to join us in London:
TRIP A (Tuesday-Monday)
Leaves from Dulles to London Heathrow on Tuesday evening with Wednesday morning arrival and returns from London Heathrow to Dulles on Monday mid-afternoon.
The two possible itineraries for flights are:
Tuesday, Sept. 19 returning Monday, Sept. 25
Tuesday, Sept. 26 returning Monday, Oct. 2
TRIP B (Wednesday-Tuesday)
Leaves from Dulles to London Heathrow on Wednesday evening with Thursday morning arrival and returns from London Heathrow to Dulles on Tuesday mid-afternoon.
The two possible itineraries for flights are:
Wednesday, Sept. 20 returning Tuesday, Sept. 26
Wednesday, Sept. 27 returning Tuesday, Oct. 3
We expect to finalize our four-star hotel accommodation before Christmas. It will be near a subway because this will almost certainly be your primary means of transportation in London. (For those who haven’t made the trip to the U.K., think in similar terms to New York. It’s just easier and sensible!)
We are not offering ground transportation in London because we don’t think it’s affordable or sensible given the size of the group – and it’s proven to slow down every step of the journey in the past!
If you’ve never traveled to Europe on an overnight flight, you should expect a little jet lag on the first day so we’ve added the “fifth day” to the trip because we want everyone to have free time to explore before or after the purple festivities. It’s too long of a trip to make for a shorter weekend, especially given the time changes. We think we’ve timed these trips perfectly for those who want to walk Abbey Road, bring golf clubs or see the countryside for a day.
We do not need the names or passport numbers upon purchase. You are simply holding seats on the plane and hotel/ticket space.
These trips are NON-REFUNDABLE but can be transferred until August 1, 2017. You will be able to adjust names up until then!
Please make sure you have a valid passport! You have eight months to get this done! If you are not an American citizen, please indicate that upon purchase so we have all of our information together for the TSA, airport and airline.
Once the game day in London is finalized in mid-April, we’ll reach back to get more information so we can finalize your itinerary, our parties/locations/etc. We expect this to go very smoothly! We love to make these trips memorable – as many of you have seen over the past two decades!
