Will There Be a Language Problem
In addition, in the services we provide to you along with the accommodation, we offer a 24 hours call center with Brazilian-English speaking personnel. In many cases our personnel speaks also French, Italian and Spanish.
Do You Sell Event Tickets
We are not an authorized ticket agent however we have access to tickets through a Broker. We charge a 20% handling fee to secure event tickets for our clients. This fee includes handling the reservation, prepaying for the tickets, accounting costs and a small fee before taxes. We strongly recommend that you first try to book through the official site as Rio Summer Games 2016 Organizing Committee will design a ticketing and promotion policy that will guarantee not just that stadiums will be filled to capacity, but also access to the competition venues to all social strata and all Games clients. The ticketing program will be broadly announced through several channels of communication. A large network of distribution and flexible service hours will make Games tickets easily available to all, in an organized and fair manner, with full credibility.
How Do I Reach My Accommodation
You can either take a taxi on your own or book a private airport transfer. In case of the private transfer a driver holding up a sign with your name will be waiting for you at the arrival area or at a designated area that we will let you know beforehand. Please make sure you passed us the full arrival information (name, airline and number of flight). If you decide to grab a taxi on your own, please make sure you have the full address of your accommodation and the emergency 24-h telephone number and the skype contact in hand.
