WEATHER: One of the best time to visit Vienna is from April to May. April’s average temperature of 9°C lies exactly in between the annual low of -1°C in January and the annual high of 19° in July. It is a month that’s significantly warmer than its previous month, March, but also a lot cooler than the following month, May. This, logically, has to result in rapidly increasing temperatures during the course of the month. The night-time low temperature rises from 4°C in the beginning of the month to 8°C toward the end, while the afternoon high temperature climbs from 13°C to 18°C, which is already very comfortable. The average lows and highs in April are 4°C and 14°C. If you would like to know more about how these statistics are calculated please visit this page.

ENTRY, EXIT & VISA REQUIREMENTS: For non-EU nationals, when showing up at the Austrian port of entry, will have to present some travel and identification documents to the Austrian border officer. These documents are as follows:

  • A valid passport or travel document. Issued in the last 10 years and it should be valid for at least 3 months after your date of departure.
  • A visa – if you are subject to Austrian visa regime.

Please note that the Austrian border officer holds the final decision whether you should be permitted to enter Austria or not. The border official will check your documents and may ask you a few questions about your trip to Austria like:

  • What is your purpose of visiting Austria?
  • How long do you intend to stay in Austria?
  • Where are you going to stay in Austria?

And if everything looks okay, you will be allowed to enter Austria, and thus the Schengen Area. Please, make sure that the Austrian border officer stamps your passport when you enter the Schengen area. Without a stamp, you could be fined or detained from Austria.

  • Nationals of third countries that have not reached a visa liberalization agreement with the Schengen states.

What Type of Visa Do I Need to Enter Austria?
If you are planning to visit Austria for a short stay trip (up to 90 days), then you have to apply for a Schengen short stay visa to Austria, known also as a C-type visa.

Depending on your purpose of entry to Austria, you can get one of the following Schengen visa types for Austria:

Travelling Within the City:
Travelling within Vienna is cheap and you can buy single fares or travel cards for longer and unlimited use. Here are examples of the costs (correct at time of writing):

  • Single fare: €2.20 adults/ €1.10 child.
  • 24, 48 or 72-hour ticket: €7.60, €13.30, €16.50 respectively.
  • Week tickets: €16.20 (only runs from Monday to Sunday, so no good if you arrive mid or late week).

The Vienna Card:
As I live in the city I’ve never had one, but the Vienna Card is a good way to save money if you intend to visit many attractions during your visit and in a short period. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Free travel on the subway system.
  • Over 210 discounts, including museums, shops and restaurants.

Before buying check what you want to do and how much you are planning to use public transport, to get an idea of how much you are likely to spend and to determine if it’s worthwhile. You probably have to visit a few museums, attractions and use the subway or trams several times to make it worthwhile.

WiFi:
Wifi is generally easy to find and most hotels, hostels and apartments should provide this as well as many coffee shops and restaurants. You can also get free WiFi at Vienna International Airport and at OEBB stations (main train stations). Also throughout the city are certain hotspots for a service called freewave. It’s pretty easy to get connected if you’re in one of these hotspots.

ActiveXplorers.com’s packages start with a Basic Package which includes the Race Entry OR the Guaranteed Entry for the Marathon race, a 5 Days / 4 Nights hotel accommodation of your choice and inclusive of breakfast. You will then be able to add-on Airport Transfer, Half-Day or Full-Day Tours (which would normally include a trip to the Race Expo for the bib number and Race Pack collection), pre-race carbo-loading dinner, post-race foot reflexology session, travel insurance, etc. You will also be able to extend their stay (in the same hotel), add extra beds or to request for room upgrades (if there is availability).

A ‘Single Occupancy’ room is for a single runner who is travelling and staying in a room alone. The price is different as the ‘Single Occupancy’ room includes Marathon Entry, hotel breakfast and other additional items, such as tour, airport transfer and travel insurance, if selected, is for a single traveller.

A ‘Twin / Double Occupancy’ room is for a single runner who is travelling and staying in a room with another traveller. The price is different as the ‘Twin / Double Occupancy’ room includes Marathon Entry for a single runner. However, the hotel breakfast and other additional items, such as tour, airport transfer and travel insurance, if selected, are included for 2 travellers. If, however, the second traveller is also a runner who wishes to participate in the relevant marathon event, you can purchase one additional Marathon Entry when purchasing your Travel Package.

All tax charges will already have been included in the Travel Packages. The tax rates which will be charged will depend on the country being visited. The hotel partners and suppliers will charge the relevant tax rates being charged based on each countries tax rates, therefore each country being visited will most likely have different tax rates.

The packages priced are for a per room basis, NOT per person.

In the event that a race has been cancelled, for any reason, ActiveXplorers.com will give guests two options: 1) Guests can cancel the entire trip, where ActiveXplorers.com will refund the entire payment OR 2) Guests can still proceed with the trip (minus the Race), where ActiveXplorers.com will refund the Race-related costs, such as the Race Entry or Guaranteed Entry and the pre-race carbo-loading dinner, if you had selected that option.

Should an entrant's application be refused by the Marathon Event organiser, for any reason, ActiveXplorers.com will give you two options: 1) You may cancel the entire trip, where ActiveXplorers.com will refund the entire payment OR 2) You will still be able to proceed with the trip (minus the Race), where ActiveXplorers.com will refund the Race-related costs, such as the Race Entry or Guaranteed Entry and the pre-race carbo-loading dinner, if you had selected those option.

As soon as you have learnt that you have been successful in obtaining the Entry through the balloting system, you can immediately send an email to support@activexplorers.com and we will be more than happy to refund you the cost of the Race Entry. Our team will also inform the Marathon organiser that your Entry is under the balloting system and not through ActiveXplorer.com.

There will be no fee charged for amendments on any bookings.

The purchase of the Race Entry OR the Guaranteed Entry alone is not possible. The Race Entry OR the Guaranteed Entry must be purchased in conjunction with the ActiveXplorers.com Travel Packages.

Most hotels allow children to stay in the room with parents either with or without an extra bed. The normal hotel policy is not to charge for children if they are under 12 years of age. Some hotels will limit occupancy of a room to two adults and one child. Only a few hotels will have existing bedding for additional children, so an extra bed is usually required. Most hotels will charge for this extra bed. Usually hotels will provide breakfast when there is a charge for an extra bed. However, this is dependent on each hotel's policies and procedures. A baby cot may be provided free of charge, by some hotels, for children under the age of 2. You will be able to see the individual hotel policy at the ‘Hotel Policy’ section of each of the packages page.

All our packages are in a pre-determined currency of American Dollars (USD).

It will normally take between 24 to 48 hours for ActiveXplorers.com to confirm availability of the rooms with our hotel partners. You will receive an email confirming the availability or the unavailability of the rooms. If the room that you had booked is not available, ActiveXplorers.com will immediately provide other available options, either in another hotel or another room level within the same hotel, whichever one you prefer.

Once you have received the email to confirm that your hotel booking has been confirmed, the hotel address and telephone number will be displayed within this email. You may also call the hotel to confirm if your room has been booked under the name you used when you made the reservation with ActiveXplorers.com.

The cancellation policy will be stated within the ‘Hotel Policy’ section. It will also be stated in the confirmation email we send you.
