Travel Challenge: Tour de France finale
Saturday 09 July 2011
£255: Coach tour
Includes coach travel on 22 July from a range of UK locations to Dover, with onwards ferry-crossing and coach travel to Paris. Three nights' B&B at the Holiday Inn in the suburb of Bougival is also included, but not grandstand access. "This offers the perfect balance, giving time in the French capital to go sightseeing and also the chance to watch the nail-biting climax from the sidelines of the Champs-Elysées on Sunday 24 July," says Anita Rodger of Leger Holidays (0844 504 6250; legerbreaks.info).
£459: Package deal
Includes Eurostar from London St Pancras to Gare du Nord on 23 July, grandstand seats in the Grand Palais with refreshments and one night at the Villa des Ambassadeurs hotel with breakfast. "The Grand Palais is located at the lower end of the Champs-Elysées on the opposite side to the finishing line, meaning guests will be able to see all the action of the final stage away from the bustling crowds," says David Higgins of Sport Abroad (0845 680 3086; www.sportabroad.co.uk).
Sports Tours International
£199: Hospitality tickets
Includes VIP official hospitality tickets with grandstand seats at the Grand Palais for the final day of the Tour de France and refreshments during the afternoon.

"These tickets offer a great way to witness the excitement of the end of the Tour de France on the most famous street in the world," says Brendan Fox of Sports Tours International. "Plus, this year, there's a good chance of a British win, with Mark Cavendish riding the route." (0161 703 8161; sportstoursinternational.co.uk).
