Ryder cup 2018

Ryder cup 2018


I've booked tickets for the 2018 Ryder cup and need to know the best area to stay in, close to a shuttle point? I believe the closest airport is Paris Orly but doesn't seem to be many flights there from Manchester at the moment.

Any help would be much appreciated! It's a surprise present so I need to try and get this right!

Thank you

has anyone had this problem in the past.

Hi. Try emailing RyderCupTickets@Europeantour.com. I have had an issue with a ticket and they are responding when I send emails to this address

YES; their website must be one of the worst I have ever encountered!.

Send an email to the address given on the site; they eventually respond. If you have uploaded a photograph of the correct person they will sort it out.

Yes you need to email them. My husband had some issues getting his and my sons pictures straightened out but finally did. We are staying in Paris and he will go out to the event since we don’t all want to go.

The venue is out past Versailles and most people will arrive by RER and get the shuttle to the course. Pretty much anywhere in Paris is close to a metro or RER line so with one change it's normally easy to get out there. We are staying in Nanterre because there are good deals on apartment hotels, it's close to the RER line and there is car parking. The Ryder cup site offers a 40 euro transport ticket which is good value if you are staying for a few days and especially good if you are coming from an airport. You can pretty much stay where you like and use the metro/RER to get around. Also arriving at either CdG airport or Orly is fine (although CdG is a bit further away).

The Ryder Cup travel ticket sounds like good value, but just concerned that the RER zone 5 seems to end at St Quentin en Yvelinnes, we are staying in Maurepas and I'm not sure if that is in zone 5 on the RER map?

I can't remember if Maurepas is in zone 4 or 5, but you'll be covered in any case. Note that Maurepas doesn't have a station but is close to La Verrière and Trappes stations.

I haven't looked into this special 40€ Ryder Cup transport pass yet, but assuming the shuttle buses are free and you are leaving Paris on the Sunday evening or before, then know that the Navigo Decouverte pass loaded for 1 week for zones 1-5 only costs 5€ + 22.80€ . All you need is a 2x3cm photo and to load it Monday through Thursday the week the Cup begins. I'll check the Ryder Cup pass and shuttlebus details and post back here if there's something I missed.

From my experience of going away to watch the Ryder Cup it's best to stay in a hotel which has a TV in the bar. I know it might sound a bit low budget but after watching the events unfold each day there's nothing better than coming back to a bar in your hotel and watching it all again.

Can anyone recommend hotels in the centre like this?

Just had an update from the Ryder cup ticketing team, quoted below:-


Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately the travel card only enables you to travel in zones 1 - 3.

Kind Regards.

So it seems that the travel ticket isn't as all encompassing as it sounds, thought id post it out there for anyone else in the same situation
