Rio de Janeiro welcomes the world to the XV Summer Paralympic Games from 7 – 18 September 2016. Following on from the success of previous Summer Games, especially in London, the British Paralympic team are looking forward to continued success in Brazil 2016.
Over 4,000 Paralympic athletes from 178 different countries around the world will compete for over 528 medals, and will share the same venues as the Summer Games. Barra da Tijuca will hold the majority of the sporting competition with the remaining events being held at Deodoro, Maracanã and Copacabana.
The 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro represent an exciting time for Travel Places. Utilising our key involvement in previous Paralympic Games from Sarajevo to London, Travel Places are contracted to handle the British Paralympic team, whether it is for transfers to and from their training camps or into the city of Rio de Janeiro. We will also be working with a number of UK media and sponsor groups for this event.
Travel Places were officially appointed the UK Authorised Ticket Reseller for both the Beijing Paralympic Games in 2008 and the Sochi Paralympic Winter Games in 2014. As a result, our understanding of requirements from these previous Games have helped us create our comprehensive travel packages for Rio 2016.
As we have seen from the Football World Cup in 2014, the colourful and flamboyant culture of the South American country makes Brazil quite the host for such an event. Brazil is a huge sporting nation, has bustling cities to explore, delicious cuisine to indulge in and carnivals to embrace, so why only imagine being a part of this lively atmosphere when it can be a reality!
We have now closed all Paralympic ticket applications. Applications received by Friday 29th July will still be considered for request through the Organising Committee ticketing portal. If you are looking to purchase tickets in advance of travelling to Rio we would recommend visiting the Official Rio 2016 Paralympics website.
Collection information for all pre-ordered Paralympic event tickets will be communicated via email 14-21 days before the start of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. All event tickets will be available for collection in Barra de Tijuca ONLY. Opening hours for ticket collection will be detailed in your travel pack confirmation.
