Secure your Start Place incl. Accommodation

Book a stay incl. start place!

Those who were not lucky enough to receive a starting place in the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon in the official draw, still have the opportunity to take part in the event. When booking a package offer (minimum stay 4 - 7 nights in a category of your choice), a starting place for registered athletes is guaranteed. But you have to be fast! The package deals can be booked only on two days in March.

There is no right to a starting place for bookings made already before.


Due to overwhelming demand, we were able to give away another 500 start places in combination with accommodation bookings. This is valid for all cyclists who officially registered in February but didn't get a start place in the official drawing.

Package bookings can be made only online via our website on the below mentioned days from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon. A minimum duration of stay is required.

There is a contingent of 500 start places, which will distribute over the following booking days. If start places are not sold for one period, they are added to the following contingent on:

16 & 17 March 2020: Booking for a minimum of 7 nights (or longer)
18 & 19 March 2020: Booking for a minimum of 6 nights (or longer)
23 & 24 March 2020: Booking for a minimum of 5 nights (or longer)
25 & 26 March 2020: Booking for a minimum of 4 nights (or longer)

But don't wait too long - the limited number of start places will be sold out very quickly!

Important information about package bookings

Apart from that, the package deal is available as participant's package with or without accompanying person(s) who don't take part in the sports event.

What exactly is the Ötztal Inside Summer Card?

The package can be booked online either with or without Ötztal Inside Summer Card - depending on the accommodation you choose in the booking process:

    If you did not select a "Summer Card Partner Lodging" you won't receive a holiday pass that is already included. But you can purchase the ÖTZTAL INSIDE SUMMER CARD on the spot.

More detailed information


Where and when can I book this package?

The package is available only online at our website www.oetztaler-radmarathon.com under "Accommodation & Resort Info / Packages incl. Start Place". It can be booked online on the days listed below between 08:00 am and 12:00 noon; a minimum stay is required.

A limited number of 500 start places is available, which will be distributed over the following booking days. If some start places are not sold they will be transferred to other dates:

16 & 17 March 2020: booking for min. 7 nights (or longer)
18 & 19 March 2020: booking for min. 6 nights (or longer)
23 & 24 March 2020: booking for min. 5 nights (or longer)
25 & 26 March 2020: booking for min. 4 nights (or longer)

For valid bookings your full address, the correct first and last name and date of birth of all (accompanying) persons are absolutely necessary.


How can I make a booking for more than 6 persons?

Due to a limited number of start places (500) the package deal is only bookable for a maximum of 6 persons. Therefore 2 or more separate bookings are required for bigger groups.


Which accommodation categories are available?

Booking the package you can choose from all accommodation categories in Ötztal, ranging from holiday apartments and private B&Bs to hotels for all pocket books.


Any important details about choosing the number of start places?

You can book start places (max. 6) according to the number of registered athletes, which means you are allowed to book one start place per registered cyclist! If the number of start places does not correspond with the number of persons in the package deal (e.g. apartment for 6 person and 2 start places), then enter the following into the "MESSAGE" box: first name and last name of the athletes who will take part in the marathon. The athlete(s) with starting place must be part of the completed package booking.

The start place is bound to the booking of a package. This booking cannot be changed afterwards. If you cancel the booking of your package also your start place in the marathon won't be valid anymore - it is not possible to transfer a start place to another person.


When is my package booking binding?

After completing your package booking it is legally binding. The contract is made between both contractual partners - the "Guest" and "Ötztal Tourismus Incoming GmbH". Please note that the package booking is guaranteed only after 100% prepayment by credit card or by bank transfer to the bank account of ÖTZTAL INCOMING within 10 days of booking. Only after receipt of payment the athlete's name will be displayed in the start list. When paying by credit card, a transaction time of 14 days must be considered.


How can make this advance payment?

The amount must be paid in full and in only one transaction by bank transfer or by credit card (Mastercard, VISA). The contract partner has to bear all costs incurred (e.g. money transfer fees). Find more detailed information in your booking confirmation which will be sent via e-mail to the contract partner after a successful booking process.


What to do if a guest cancels the booking?

If the package booking is cancelled for whatever reason, a written message - containing also the reason for the cancellation - must be sent immediately to ÖTZTAL INCOMING: incoming@oetztal.com. The cancellation is valid from the moment you receive a written confirmation of the cancellation!


Which reasons cause an automatic cancellation by the booking center?

The following circumstances result in an automatic cancellation of the booked package without prior notice:

  • wrong home address and e-mail address
  • incorrect check-in and/or check-out day: can't be changed afterwards
  • no matching personal data: first name and last name and date of birth of the athlete(s) must correspond with official registration data
  • the athlete who gets the starting place is not part of the package booking
  • double bookings: using the same names for more than one booking
  • a starting place was booked for an athlete who has not registered
  • IMPORTANT: If you book a package deal for a minimum of 7 nights on the first day of sale, and if you try to book another but shorter package deal for the same participants in the following days, both (all) bookings will be cancelled.

Please note that you cannot change - for example - check-in/check-out dates and that no additional person can be added once you booked the package deal. In this case, send a request to incoming@oetztal.com. If there are vacancies, an additional booking will be made at the accommodation (without start place).
