Each year we have many people cancel due to unforeseen circumstances who did not purchase our travel insurance meaning they end up losing their package amount. Protect yourself and your money by purchasing our Group Insurance through ManuLife.
With our insurance you will be able to cancel for insurable reasons as well as running injuries while training and we also sell a Cancel For Any Reason policy! We offer various other insurance packages including Cancellation, Interruption, Medical and Baggage. For full details on coverage, please click here: Manulife Financial.
If you receive a message saying the site is down, please use a different web browser or platform.
Please note that the insurance coverage that you may have on your credit card will not cover you completely! We are unable to process insurance for those living in Quebec – please contact your local travel agency for coverage.
Not Included with your Package
Travel insurance, airfare, meals and items of a personal nature are not included in your package.
The Group Hotel
Motel One Berlin – Hauptbahnhof
The Motel One Berlin – Hauptbahnhof is situated just 1.7KM from Brandenburg Gate which is beside the Start/Finish area of the marathon. This means that you can easily walk both to the marathon in the morning and then back to the hotel post marathon without having to worry about taking public transportation.
The Motel One Berlin – Hauptbahnhof offers rooms with ONE “double” bed that is larger than a Queen bed in Canada but slightly smaller than a King bed. Beds measure 1.8m wide by 2m long.
Prices are in € Euros and packages are based on a three night hotel stay. Additional nights may be purchased either before and/or after the weekend.

Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you book my flights for me?
Anyone who purchases one of our packages for the 2022 BMW BERLIN-MARATHON can contact Yumi at Travel Best Bets 1 877 523 7823 ext 122 or [email protected] to have their flights booked.
What are the minimum three nights we have to stay?
You may stay any three nights although the majority of the group will stay Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in order to get to the expo and so that you won’t have to check out prior to running the marathon.
What’s the weather like?
Average September temperatures in Berlin average between +11 and +19 degrees Celsius.
How do I get to the start line and back to the hotel after the marathon?
We purposely chose the hotel that we did as it’s walking distance (1.7KM) to both the Start and the Finish area.
