London Olympic tickets available locally
The Bahamas Olympic Committee (BOC) recently announced the list of local travel agencies accredited to provide tickets for the London Olympics in the summer of next year, 2012.
“A full range of tickets for the London Olympics, including air, train and bus travel tickets; hotel accommodations, tours and sporting events tickets are available at Professional Travel, World Executive Travel & Tours, and First Class Travel and Tours,” said a spokesman for the BOC.
BOC President Wellington Miller encouraged Bahamians to take advantage of the local availability of tickets.
“We have put these arrangements in place more than a year ahead of time in order to give Bahamians the opportunity to plan the Olympic visit of a lifetime,” said Miller. “Bahamians can arrange an Olympic visit to support their athletes for however many days they wish, including all events, transfers and tours.”
The BOC recently hosted representatives of Cartan Tours, the official British Olympic ticket agents, and facilitated arrangements with local travel agencies.
“Team Bahamas looks to be an exciting proposition in 2012 and we are encouraging families and supporters to get their tickets early so they won’t have to go to London with their ‘hands swinging’ as we say and run into ticket scalpers and other con artists.
“This time around everything you need can be researched, bought and paid for right here at home rather than going to London in the midst of uncertainty to look for tickets and hotels, etc.,” said Miller. “We want Bahamians to take advantage of this great opportunity to be in London in a first class manner to support Bahamian athletes,” he added.
