About the flight from London. One suggestion today   http://www.opodo.com/  

with total cost in pounds 239  £ is 

There is no need to spend a night in Athens. Arrival time in Athens on Thursday is 17.50 Take the bus to Rafina on 18.00 or a taxi in case you do not catch the bus . You take the ferry on 19.30. Arrival time in Marmari is 20.30.
Return on Monday . Ferry to Rafina on 10.15. You will be in airport 12.45 . Departure time of your flight to London 14.35

Total cost in a single room with breakfast , including your personal expenses in meals and drinks (one per day) is 239 + 300 = 539 £
In case you share the room total cost 450 - 470 £
As you can see this is almost the half from your estimation (800 -1000 £ )
For any further details please contact me via pm or in facebook



I checked also the cost in the case this WC was in Waterloo like in 2015.   Flights 113 euro + 320 euro in IBIS HOTEL (the most cheap in the city) for 4 nights + 25 euro (the registartion fee in 2015) = 457 euro without  transfer cost from airport to Waterloo  and meals and drinks which as you remember  well  were very expensive.  With an average cost 30 euro per one meal and one drink per day this makes a total cost of 457+120 = 577 euro = 510 pounds 


This is 30 pounds less than in a WC in Greece!!!!!! and this in case you take a single room because if you find another player from England total cost will be 40-60 pounds LESS .  Does it worth to lose it for 30 pounds?  or if this WC was in Waterloo this year would you join?

London Stansted to Athens = 240€  (  210 £)
London->Athens, Athens->Sofia->London (Ryanair)


Hi Richard


As you can read above before one month ago we gave some cheaper suggestion for flights (I do not know the cost today) so maybe you can search the above flights. WC in Greece was announced in 2016 ( as memmber Iin ISF you were aware from October!) when there was real cheap flights from London ( less than 200 euro) .  I remind you Antony's email ''  As promised the flight costs today are £ 165 which is around Euro 200 return from London. ''  It is obvious that late booking costs more and this is common in all the world.

About the other expenses 

The cost you mention above is for a double room with breakfast. So you can share it with another British player . Charlie has already booked his flight and hotel so maybe you can ask from Jonathan to share a room and have  the half cost. In case you take a single room there is a suggestion to book in Marmary bay with 50 euro per night (including breakfast) that is 200 euro for 4 nights.

Costs of getting to and from the airports + ferry + entrance fee are very well described in the official invitation and in total is 60 euro

Inside the entrance fee there are 2 free light meals during the seniors tournament and the mean cost for dinner is 10-15 euro and 6-7 euro  .  

In total and in case you take a single room cost is around 340 euro / 300 £  + air tickets but if you find someone to share the room this cost can be reduced 80-100 euro  / 70-90 £ .  In none case cost is so expensive as your estimation , even today.

I hope that you will change your mind and we will have the pleasure to see you in this special event. The Optician who is also British and will join WC maybe can help you to find more cheap flights

£342 for flight from UK

£244 for hotel

add in getting to and from the airports + ferry + entrance fee and food and drinks.

Wow £800 at the very least and maybe costing up to £1,000.


I have been to quite a few World Championships and the average cost has been £300 to £400. I think last years was the most expensive at around £450.

I cannot justify paying £800 to £1000. Too expensive.


I can get return flights to the USA cheaper than the flight to Athens.

Return flight to Boston for £234 or New York for £290.
