We want to know what your plans are if you are travelling to the European Championships. How do you plan on getting there and what kind of information do you feel is essential before you depart? AA Ireland is helping motorists to make the trip in the most convenient and cost effective way, leaving you to concentrate on supporting the boys in green.
One option is to fly from Dublin to Berlin at a cost of approx. €200. (All prices are valid as of March 2012). Berlin is just over a three hour drive from the city of Poznan in Poland, where Ireland will play their first match against Croatia on June 10th. At this stage, accommodation in Poznan is limited so renting a campervan may be a good option. Our research has led us to a site called www.driveeurope.com. A five-person berth for twelve nights costs €1,600 with a €2,000 refundable deposit. Excluding the deposit, this works out at €320 per person.
However, fuel costs must be factored in. Unleaded petrol in Poland comes in at 5.59 Zloty per litre which is approx €1.34 per litre, while diesel costs around 5.70 Zloty per litre, approx €1.38.
In the Ukraine, prices are significantly cheaper; €0.79 per litre (just under 8.5 Hryvnia/UAH)) and diesel also works out cheaper; €0.72 per litre (7.65 Hryvnia/UAH).
