Accommodation with starting place package

Package Deals

Due to the high demand, the organizer provides a contingent of 500 “special starting places” available for package deals. It means that cyclists registered which did not get a starting place in the official starting place drawing have a second chance to fulfill their dream of the “Ötztaler” myth.

Basic details

The package offers “I have a dream - Ötztaler” are only valid during the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon (01 September 2024) and require a minimum stay of 4 nights.


The contract is concluded between the two contractual partners “Guest” and “Ötztal Tourismus Incoming GmbH” (in short: ÖTZTAL INCOMING).
The package booking is only guaranteed with 100% advance payment by credit card or bank transfer to the ÖTZTAL INCOMING bank account within 10 days of booking.


The package offers can only be booked online via the www.oetztaler-radmarathon.com website.
Bookings or reservations in advance are not possible.


The package deals are to be understood as a participant package, with or without accompanying person(s) who are not taking part in the cycle marathon.


The starting places, which are “special starting places” (2nd starting group), are tied to the package deal booking.
It is not possible to transfer starting places to another person.


The travel package price (accommodation plus starting place) does not include the resort tax of € 4.00 per person/night, to be paid directly to the accommodation provider on site.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The package deals can only be booked online via the www.oetztaler-radmarathon.com website. The booking link will be activated on the website on the following dates between 8:00 am and 12 noon. If the contingent is not used up, the remaining starting places will be available for sale again on the following dates. Booking is possible while stocks last!

  • 11 & 12 March 2024: from 7 nights

During the online purchase, the personal details as well as the first and last names and dates of birth of all people in the group, including accompanying persons, are required.

Accommodation options are spread across the entire Ötztal and range from bed and breakfasts and apartments to 5-star hotels.

The amount must be paid in full and in one transaction by bank transfer or credit card (Mastercard, VISA). Any fees for financial transactions are borne by the contractual partner.

Important note: Due to the partly high frequency of credit card payments, there may be a delay in the authorization process and thus the booking may be canceled! Receiving the booking confirmation (incl. booking number) by email ensures that the booking has been completed correctly.

The package booking is binding upon completion. However, the booking is only considered successfully completed after receipt of the booking confirmation (incl. booking number).

Due to the limited number of starting places, the package deals are limited to a maximum of 6 people. If there are a more people, it is therefore necessary to make two or more bookings.

The number of starting places (maximum 6) must be selected according to the number of registered cyclists - one starting place is permitted per registered cyclist. If the number of starting places does not correspond to the number of people (e.g. apartment for 6 people and 2 starting places), the “MESSAGE” field must be filled in as follows: first and last name of the persons taking part in the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon. The persons with a starting place must be part of the completed package booking!

No changes are possible after booking, e.g. arrival and departure or subsequent bookings of additional people. If there are vacancies, an additional booking in the reserved accommodation (without a starting place) will be made by the booking office.

The transfer of such “special starting places” is not possible. A transfer to the following year is as well excluded.

You will be included in the start list after receipt of payment. When paying by credit card, this can take up to 14 days due to a longer transaction time.

Each participant will receive an email with their personal start number including confirmation of their starting place by the end of July. The signed starting place confirmation must be brought to the starting package pick-up site in Sölden. The start number will only be given to the participant in person upon presentation of the signed starting place confirmation and a photo ID.

Cancellation must be made in writing to the ÖTZTAL INCOMING booking office, stating the exact reason for cancellation. Cancellation is only valid upon receipt of the cancellation confirmation by email. If the booking is canceled, the right to the booked starting places expires and the registration on Datasport is deleted at the same time.

The following compensation flat rate must be paid:

  • until 25 June 2024 - no cancellation fee
  • from 26 June 2024 - 50 % of the travel price
  • from 26 July 2024 - 70 % of the travel price
  • from 17 August 2024 - 85 % of the travel price
  • no show (not arriving without cancellation) - 100 % of the travel price


We recommend taking out travel insurance with European Travel Insurance. To calculate and take out hotel cancellation insurance, simply click HERE.

If a participant is unable to arrive or start for whatever reason, there is no entitlement to a refund for accommodation or starting place.The booking must remain valid so that the remaining participants do not lose their starting places.

The following circumstances will result in a cancellation of the package booking:

  • Incorrect home address and e-mail address
  • Incorrect arrival and/or departure date: subsequent changes are excluded
  • Personal data such as first and last name and date of birth of the participant(s) do not match the registration
  • Participant is not registered
  • Starting place booked for a participant which is not part of the package booking
  • The same participant(s) has/have been entered in several bookings
  • Despite an already existing booking, a booking is made again - this time with a shorter length of stay: both bookings will be cancelled

Note: Once a booking has been made, no changes are possible - such as arrival and departure dates or subsequent bookings of additional people. If there are vacancies in the same accommodation, an additional booking (without starting place) will be made by the booking office.
